There’s a fall guy emerging here for Trump: Rudy Giuliani. Sondland, like many witnesses before him, confirmed that Trump empowered Giuliani to run point on Ukraine. Trump himself told Zelensky, “Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy.” But Rudy is Trump’s only out. Rudy went rogue, Trump and his defenders will likely argue, and if he engaged in bribery or extortion or any other conduct offensive to the Constitution, then he did it on his own, without Trump’s blessing or authorization. It’s a stretch, but it’s all Trump’s got left.
