Donald Trump had high hopes for this election season. He believed deep down, of course, that he would beat Joe Biden. And even if he didn't, he'd put together a crack team of lawyers who could help him win.
And Trump had some formidable law firms ready to represent him after the election. The problem, however, was that Trump lost the election many times over. And when the bad press came in, the respected legal teams started walking away.
So Trump stayed behind with his longtime ally and friend Rudy Giuliani along with conspiracy theorists such as Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and Joe DeGenova. The legal team of the "Elite Strike Force" had their watches cleaned regularly in court.
And the ringleader of the circus was Rudy Giuliani. From holding a press conference next to a sex shop to introducing witnesses who appeared to be drunk, the former New York mayor has been incessantly causing embarrassment.
The humiliation of his loss is beginning to decline for Donald Trump. Not only will he be leaving the White House soon, his business empire will be destroyed and he is in legal danger in New York City. And he is certainly not happy with Giuliani.
According to a Washington Post report:
"Trump has ordered aides not to pay Giuliani's legal fees, said two officials, and has requested that he personally approve all reimbursements for costs incurred by Giuliani on behalf of the president to challenge election results in key states They said Trump privately expressed concern about some of Giuliani's moves and failed to acknowledge Giuliani's request for $ 20,000 per day fees for his work attempting to overturn the election. "
Giuliani has yet to comment on Trump's non-payment.
