Rudy's Side Gig: Giuliani Lobbies for Foreign Governments While Working for Trump
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who currently works as President Donald Trump's outside counsel, has continued working for foreign clients despite his efforts on behalf of the American president.
"It would be appropriate for Giuliani to disclose all the work he does for foreign clients, given the fact that he regularly gives his opinions publicly on foreign policy matters and is close to the President and serves as his personal attorney," Corey Goldstone, the media strategist for the Campaign Legal Center, told Salon by email. "It is unlikely that Giuliani will face legal consequences because of the loose enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Few enforcement actions have been taken by the Department of Justice for violations of FARA, with only seven criminal enforcement actions pursued over the last half century."
