Rudy Giuliani: No, Flipping Should Not Be Illegal

The New York Daily News reports:

When it comes to flipping, Rudy Giuliani won’t budge. The former federal prosecutor — famous for coaxing New York mobsters into spilling the beans on their bosses — took a jab at President Trump on Friday over his claim that the longstanding legal tactic of “flipping” ought to be “outlawed.”

“The President is not a lawyer,” Giuliani told the Daily News. In an unusual rebuttal of his own boss, the New York mayor-turned-top Trump attorney suggested the President might not have had a full grasp of what he was talking about when he went on Fox News on Wednesday and proposed outlawing witness cooperation agreements.

“I don’t think he’s against the idea of cooperation,” Giuliani, 74, said. “He’s against the idea of getting people to lie. I’m not troubled by his comments,” Giuliani added.
