Giuliani is said to seek $20,000 a day payment for Trump legal work
November 18, 2020
Rudy Giuliani, who has helped oversee a string of failed court challenges to President Donald Trump's defeat in the election, asked the president's campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his legal work, multiple people briefed on the matter said.
The request stirred opposition from some of Trump's aides and advisers, who appear to have ruled out paying that much, and it is unclear how much Giuliani will ultimately be compensated.
Since Giuliani took over management of the legal effort, Trump has suffered a series of defeats in court, and lawyers handling some of the remaining cases have dropped out.
