On ABC Evening News one of the legal spokespeople is Dan Abrams. His gravitas, along with his cautiously positioned and packages legal interpretations, gives the show unique credibility on the growing number of legal issues swirling around the Trump Administration.
And, some are speculating that Rudy Giuliani has been assigned that same sort of role in Donald Trump's defense of alleged inappropriate Russian interactions. In Vanity Fair, for example, Chris Smith hammers that Giuliani has no experience on the defense side. That is, the successful kind. He failed when he went to bat for a Turkish trader.
In addition, in terms of practicing law, Giuliani might not be at the top of his game. The issue isn't age. After all, both David Boies and Ted Olson are heading toward 80. The matter is more of the skills atrophying from lack of use.
So, the watchers are focusing on Giuliani's spokesperson duties. If he screws them up, his legacy could be forever tarnished. His every statement is featured on establishment media.
Reflection: Should Giuliani have remained in semi-retirement?
