Rudolph Giuliani, while running for President of the United States, is still taking a paycheck from his legal firm. His legal firm, Giuliani Partners, is representing the government of Qatar. The government of Qatar is accused of protecting people who were behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Giuliani refuses to cut his ties to the firm, even just temporarily, for the period of his candidacy. Giuliani, taking money that comes indirectly from the government of Qatar even while he campaigns for President, refuses to explain what he and his firm are doing on behalf of Qatar.
Given Giuliani’s refusal to answer questions about this financial link he has with the government of Qatar, American voters can appropriately ask themselves who Rudy Giuliani would really be representing, if he were elected to the White House.
Haven’t we had enough of the Republican President with dirty ties to Middle East petroleum czars who is already in the White House? Do we really need another?
