After his divorce proceedings in May, I asked Rudy Giuliani about his meetings with Turkish President Erdogan on behalf of Reza Zarrab.
He declined, telling me: “No, I cannot comment on that... Most of that would be covered, if not all of it, by attorney-client privilege.”
The non-answer wasn’t particularly newsworthy at the time. I revisited it in light of current events.
I should clarify that Giuliani’s affidavit referred to meetings, plural, with senior Turkish and US officials, but “a” meeting with Erdogan.
