Giuliani likens Pelosi to Sen. Joseph McCarthy


By BIANCA QUILANTAN 06/09/2019 09:03 PM EDT

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday for saying she wants to see the president in prison, and likened her to Sen. Joseph McCarthy during the Red Scare of the 1950s.

“Pelosi said @realDonaldTrump should go to prison. But she said nothing about a trial or a jury or a presumption of innocence,” Giuliani wrote on Twitter.

“Is this worse than Joe McCarthy?” he continued. “They are destroying any adherence to our constitution. And the Fake News failure to hold them accountable is corrupt.”

Giuliani’s remarks follow Pelosi’s comments in a closed meeting Tuesday with several top Democrats about whether to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump because of his actions during the Russia investigation.

3. Ah yes, McCarthy

Tell me, Rudy, what sort of reasoned, legal argument has Donald Trump put forward for his various chants at his rallies of "Lock her up!" Where's the presumption of innocence there? Or are you saying the Speaker of the House is more powerful than the President?

5. Saved by the Politico link...

Without the posted link, which provides a more dispassionate context for the post, I'd guess that the DU's TOS would be violated because on its face, the post appears to be a severe criticism of Pelosi. The link, however, shows that the article was critical of Guiliani.

8. Well well,Rudy fell off the

"Sane"wagon once again,course I doubt is he ever was on that wagon,and,he did know the Fake Tail Gunner back in the day. So did my Family,and Tail Gunner was a full blown Drunk to start with. We knew him as a extremely Vindictive Spiteful Racist person.

Know I do not know Speaker Pelosi,but,none of those character traits have never applied to her that I mentioned.

Rudy must be hearing foot steps or he is afraid of who might be standing in the shadows.

9. McCarthy's evil wingman, Roy Cohn, was

an early mentor to Trump. Giuliani ought to be more careful about invoking the ghost of McCarthy.
