President Donald Trump is now upset with personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and has instructed aides not to pay him his attorney’s fees, The Washington Post reported, and The New York Times confirmed.
Trump was indicted for the second time Wednesday. The House of Representatives presented an article accusing him of “incitement to rebellion”
According to The Post and The Times, Trump has become more and more isolated – cut out some aides while others leave the empty White House in the last week of the Trump administration.
Giuliani is one of the confidants whose relationship with the president has been frayed.
The New York Times reported that White House officials began blocking Giuliani’s calls to Trump, and according to The Post, Trump aides told him not to pay.
Trump was “insulted” by some of Giuliani’s actions, including asking for $ 20,000 for his work to fight the election result, The Times reported. (A fee Giuliani has denied.) Trump has also instructed aides that he will personally approve any refunds to Giuliani for travel while contesting the election result, The Post reported.
Giuliani had urged Trump to believe the baseless conspiracy theories about non-existent election fraud. Trump and Republican allies could not win any of the dozens of lawsuits they conducted in courts that tried to overthrow the election result.
Giuliani has also been criticized for his remarks during the “Save America” meeting that preceded the siege of the Capitol.
The lawyer had called for “trial by fight” at the demonstration, but later claimed he was just making a “Game of Thrones” reference and not calling for violence.
Many, including former U.S. lawyers who worked with him, said they were appalled by his comments.

A senior official told The Post that it is not only Giuliani that Trump is upset about, but also Vice President Mike Pence, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, economic adviser Larry Kudlow, national security adviser Robert O ‘Brien and chief of staff Mark Meadows, who he believes have not defended him after recent events.
“The president is pretty settled,” the senior official told the Post. “No one is out there.”
