Just a little thinking out loud at the moment. But isn’t Rudy Giuliani the president’s personal attorney? Not attorney general, not White House counsel, not with any kind of a White House or Dept Of Justice portfolio. He’s essentially a private citizen, right?
Then why isn’t he under arrest and being investigated for interfering in foreign policy as a private citizen? Isn’t Mr. Giuliani’s communications with officials in Ukraine a violation of at minimum, the Logan Act? Does his status as the president’s private attorney grant him authority to conduct foreign relations activity? Or is the president violating the trust of the presidency if he has encouraged Mr. Giuliani to engage in illegal activities?
In a normal world, wouldn’t the State Department be the people conducting our foreign policy?
