Rudy Giuliani sought former President Donald Trump’s help with paying his legal bills, per CNN.
CNN said Giuliani and his lawyer made a personal visit to Trump in Mar-a-Lago in recent months.
An unnamed source told CNN that Trump wasn’t very keen to help Giuliani.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has personally sought former President Donald Trump’s help with paying his legal bills, according to a CNN story published Thursday.

Citing several unnamed sources, CNN reported that Giuliani traveled to Mar-a-Lago in recent months, along with his lawyer Robert Costello, with the primary purpose of getting Trump to pitch in with some cash. 

One of the sources told CNN that the pair believed they could better explain to Trump why he needed to help with Giuliani’s legal bills at a physical meeting. 

Giuliani might not have gotten the answer he wanted. A source told CNN that while Trump said he would help with Giuliani’s legal bills, he did not commit to any timeline or pledge a specific amount. 

On Monday, Giuliani was one of 19 defendants — including Trump himself — who was charged for trying to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. Giuliani was indicted on multiple criminal charges, including racketeering.

During Monday’s episode of Giuliani’s live stream show “America’s Mayor Live,” Giuliani admitted that he wasn’t feeling great about getting charged. 

“As you see, I’m very nervous and sweating and upset, whether I’m going to be indicted. It does trouble me greatly because I value my reputation beyond anything,” Giuliani said on his show. 

“I find that what they’ve done here is reprehensible. And I feel it’s reprehensible with regard to me, my family, my career, and what I’ve done in my life,” he added.

Representatives for Giuliani and Trump did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Insider sent outside regular business hours.
