Maybe this is Lady Karma taking a hand, keeping Rudy and company out of the meeting with Donald Trump and the two state legislators who flew in from Michigan today. In all events, Andrew Giuliani, Rudy’s son, has tested positive for coronavirus and he’s been around the entire legal team. So apparently the group will stay holed up together in the Arlington, Virginia conference room which is their lair — field trips to Hades to get more instruction from their masters not included. Axios:

Why it matters: This added turmoil inside the president’s legal operation comes at a time when the president is urging Republican state lawmakers to interfere with the electoral process and reverse Joe Biden’s victory to a Trump win.

  • “It’s just a shitshow, it’s a joke,” said a Trump campaign adviser.

Behind the scenes: Top Trump campaign officials held a conference call this morning with Eric Herschmann, a lawyer on the White House staff, in which they candidly discussed their legal conundrum.

  • Herschmann serves in an advisory role outside the counsel’s office, and no one in the counsel’s office participated on the call, according to another person familiar with the call.

  • Officials on the call included campaign manager Bill Stepien and advisers Jason Miller, Justin Clark, Matt Morgan, Tim Murtaugh and Boris Epshteyn, as well as Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis.

  • Asked whether the White House counsel’s office would be present in the meeting, Herschmann told the Trump campaign officials that the counsel’s office would not be represented but that somebody needed to brief the president about the legal situation.

It’s difficult to prove that there’s a conspiracy going on, when you’re sidelined by a virus, which you’ve been claiming is a hoax. I mean really. Poor Rudy will have to find another way.

Legal team staying away because Rudy’s son has COVID. Pffft!
They’re staying away because they know Trump is about to bribe or coerce those Michigan representatives, and it’s illegal, and they want to be able to plead ignorance about it. They don’t want to be a witness to it.

And those legislators will tell him “no”, possibly “hell no.” They say “yes”, their state AG and the incoming DOJ roasts them alive.
