(PresidentialInsider.com)- Former New York City Mayor and famed attorney Rudy Giuliani is no longer representing former President Donald Trump, according to Trump spokesman Jason Miller.
In a statement, Miller revealed that “Mayor Giuliani is not currently representing President Trump in any legal matters.”
It ends a long relationship between Giuliani and Trump. Giuliani has long served as the president’s personal attorney and also headed up the president’s legal efforts to secure election integrity in the wake of the November 2020 presidential election.
Left-wing news outlets immediately jumped on the statement, speculating that it could represent a major disagreement or fall out between the pair. However, the statement may also have simply been a clarification that Giuliani is not currently engaged in any legal projects or battles with the former president.
And in fact, that’s precisely what Miller said when anti-Trump provocateur and CNN propagandist Jim Acosta speculated what the news means.
“Simply that there are no pending cases where Mayor Giuliani is representing the president,” Miller added on Twitter.

“The Mayor remains an ally and a friend,” he continued.
CNN, however, speculated that the president was expressing “frustration” with Giuliani.
“He told his staff to stop paying Giuliani’s legal fees, a person familiar with the matter previously told CNN, though aides were not clear if Trump was serious about his instructions,” Acosta wrote.
Is that another one of those anonymous sources we’re supposed to take seriously?
Rudy Giuliani currently has his own battles to fight, as the famed attorney faced down lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, two electronic voting system firms that became the focus of a controversy surrounding the integrity of the last election.
CNN described Giuliani as having perpetuated “baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election,” but the former New York City Mayor presented evidence of misconduct and fraud at several evidentiary hearings in battleground states across America.
