Giuliani: ‘Over My Dead Body’ Will Mueller Interview Trump

Giuliani: ‘Over My Dead Body’ Will Mueller Interview TrumpWASHINGTON — With a number of probes moving closer to the Oval Office, President Donald Trump and his attorney unleashed a fresh series of attacks Sunday on the investigators, questioning their integrity while categorically ruling out the possibility of a presidential interview with the special counsel. Trump and Rudy Giuliani used Twitter and television interviews to deliver a series of broadsides against special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in New York.

Process Crimes and Misdemeanors

Process Crimes and MisdemeanorsOn this much, hizzoner’s critics and defenders have tended to agree: The greatest accomplishment of Rudy Giuliani’s career was how he cleaned up crime in New York City during his time as mayor.When he entered office, the city was riddled with crimes, both serious (there had been more than 2,000 murders in 1990, the peak year) and petty (people urinating in public or the infamous squeegee men extorting drivers).Giuliani was inspired by George L. Kelling and James Q. Wilson’s 1982 Atlantic story “Broken Windows,” which argued that if authorities maintained “order” by enforcing small crimes, it would deter more serious violations of the law.
