Lawyer? Lobbyist? Fixer? Rudy Giuliani's overseas activities leave trail of questions

Giuliani's international activities have raised questions about whom he represents and sent mixed messages to foreign governments, experts say. nbcnews.com/politics/polit…
On Dec. 7, 2001, nearly three months after the terrorist attack that had made him a ‘national hero’ and a little over three weeks before he would leave office, New Giuliani took the first official step toward making himself rich.

Over the next five years, Giuliani Partners earned more than $100M. And that success helped transform Rudy into the GOP 2008 presidential nom & later into a globe-trotting consultant whose net worth is estimated to be in the tens of millions of dollars.

📌Rudy crafted his image based on the worldwide recognition he had gained for his work in the days after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Famously loyal, Giuliani chose as his partners longtime associates, including a former police commissioner later convicted of corruption, Bernard Kerik,

In 2000, Rudy told a grand jury that his former chief investigator briefed him on some aspects of Bernard B. Kerik’s relationship with a company suspected of ties to organized crime before Mr. Kerik’s appointment as NYC police commissioner.

Another Giuliani partner is Pasquale J. D'Amuro, a former FBI executive who later admitted taking artifacts from Ground Zero

Pin this too:

📌Giuliani CEO of Giuliani Partners LLC, announced that Pasquale J. D'Amuro, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI's New York office will become CEO of Giuliani Security and Safety LLC, effective April 1, 2005.


n 2004, D'Amuro acknowledged to investigators he "requested pieces of the WTC building ... for himself and possibly others working on the invetsigation" and kept one piece of granite for himself in June 2003.

Rudy also hired Alan Placa a former Roman Catholic priest accused of covering up sexual abuse in the church.

Giuliani, grounded in the intricately connected world of New York politics, has been more than adept at making the system work for his clients. He knows how to grease the wheels.

🔑They have included a pharmaceutical company (Purdue Pharma) that, with Giuliani's help, resolved a lengthy Drug Enforcement Administration investigation with only a fine;

A confessed drug smuggler (Hank Asher) who hired Giuliani to ensure his security company could do business with the federal government;

2002, Giuliani Partners agreed to a lucrative contract to represent Florida-based security startup Seisint Inc., created by a close friend, Hank Asher. Seisint’s data-mining product — code-named Matrix.

Matrix caught the attention of federal and state authorities after Sept. 11 because the firm said that by searching through billions of public records, it could identify ‘potential terrorists.’

The firm, Giuliani Partners, will make recommendations on how to upgrade the Horse racing industry's communications and wagering systems and implement security procedures and controls. Sound like the Fox guarding the hen house.

To make a long story short, Rudy surrounds himself with a coterie of “interesting’ characters of dubious backgrounds...

🔑I will end for now with this tweet by Rudy’s long time associate Bernard Keric, posted the morning of the day Norte Dame tragically burned later that evening
