Rudy Giuliani Offers Contracts Defense to Allegations Against Him

RudyI learned today that Rudy Giuliani (pictured) is claiming that he could not have been a foreign agent because his contracts with foreign entities specifically provided that he was not a foreign agent.  Here's the story from Politico:

“I never, ever represented a foreign national,” Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “In fact, I have in my contracts, a refusal to do it because from the time I got out of being mayor, I did not want to lobby.”

He said his contracts contain a clause that indicates he will not participate in lobbying or foreign representation, something that he said would be “too compromising.”

Well there you have it.  After all, everybody knows that if, for example, your contract for money laundering provides that you are not engaged in money laundering, it's case closed.

It gets even better too. If you don't have a clause like that, clearly then you *must* be doing illegal thing X.
