Justice is rolling along slowly in the right direction but I won't be happy till I learn that these mightily wronged women have very substantial damages safely deposited into their bank accounts.

Two questions, Liz. One, why was the case filed in DC? Two, I have heard that defendants, such as Alex Jones, who have been found liable for defamation simply refuse to pay. Why don’t the courts seize and distribute assets to the victims? And while we don’t imprison debtors who can’t pay, why not imprison the uncooperative for contempt? Would that take a second trial?

America's Mayor, indeed. It's amazing how high these nefarious characters go before they fall. Do they turn starting out first on the good side, pulling the wool over our eyes, or do they succumb to power and become or collect helper cronies? The fall is truly pathetic to read especially with that ubiquitously used photo of Giuliani in the spotlight with the hair dye and sweat dripping down.

We have to prevail against Trump and these sub-Trump helpers one by one. But the oxygen they take!

One of the saddest public commentaries on this subject was Giuliani's own daughter's statement, I believe at least a year ago, that her father is truly mentally ill, and that his behavior embarrassed her. He had a notable career, and then it was as if he flew too close to the sun and it melted his brain.

Seems like Rudy is banking on a pardon from a future Orange President. What a fuck-up he is.

Why is Rudy behaving this way? He's an old white male ('nuf said). He probably thinks that since Trump has gotten away with this type of behavior he can too. Interesting, Trump is also going through the same thing, for different reasons, in the NYC case for lying and cheating on his financial statements. So many of Trump's sycophants don't understand that Trump is treated differently because he's a former President and he gets a slightly higher caliber of attorneys to do the fighting for him. It isn't right, but that's how it works. Trump can also fund raise and have the PACs pay his bills. Truly, I hope Rudy testifies as it will help to make the damage award all the larger. Rudy, like Trump, will demonstrate his arrogance and bigotry; he can't help himself.

👏 Thanks for putting it all together so we are reminded of the timeline etc. - so much legal going on with Drumpf & his enablers that they start to blur together! But it breaks my heart that these two women will once again have to testify & elevate their profiles for the haters & MAGAts of the world 😡

Who wants to bet that he doesn't show up on Monday? He's arrogant and insane enough to try to pull such a stunt. Judge Howell will hammer him into the ground.

Well, Rudy. As Jerry Seinfeld said, "that's a shame." 🍿

I REALLY want Trump to spend the rest of his life in jail.

But I REALLY REALLY want Rudy to suffer more. Lose every damn penny he's got, so he's homeless and ends up being a squeege-man begging for dimes from cars coming off the GWB from Jersey. (If you lived thru his dictatorial stint as mayor, you'll know how poetic this justice would be.)
