Conservative Pundit Slams Rudy Giuliani For Media Blitz: ‘Why In The Hell Were You Talking’?

Maybe Rudy Giuliani should’ve just kept his mouth shut.

That’s what many believe about the Trump lawyer’s recent media blitz, in which he let multiple cats out of the bag concerning President Donald Trump‘s actions and knowledge of events, mostly surrounding adult film star Stormy Daniels and Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

Conservative CNN contributor Ken Cuccinelli has added his voice to that chorus — saying that Giuliani had no business discussing the Daniels case when he’s been hired to work on the Russia probe.

“When your personal lawyer, the head of your legal team, speaks to facts, the presumption is you’re speaking to facts as understood by your client,” Cuccinelli told CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Jeffrey Toobin. “He didn’t answer certain key questions like, ‘Why did this happen when it happened?’ ‘What was — what were the specifics of the payback?’ He’s invited a whole another round of questions.”

“If he wasn’t brought on to deal with Stormy Daniels, then why in the hell were you talking about it?” he added.

“Why was he talking about hostages being sent home from North Korea?” Cuomo chimed in.

“That’s exactly where I was going, Chris,” Cuccinelli responded, laughing.
