The many barriers to Secretary of State Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani as secretary of state? Beyond his combustible behavior in recent months, his business dealings present an array of potential conflicts.

The New York Times points out that Giuliani Partners, the consulting firm he launched after serving as mayor of New York, has had multiple foreign contracts. The company represented the government of Qatar and the Canadian company developing the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

As the interactive Muckety map above shows, Giuliani also has received speaking fees from companies with domestic and foreign operations. Politico writes:

Giuliani’s participation in Trump’s transition and contention for the job of secretary of state poses a direct challenge to Trump’s promises to root out Washington self-dealing and ban his administration’s officials from lobbying for foreign governments.

The New York Times editorial board published an editorial Wednesday headlined, “Why Rudy Giuliani Shouldn’t Be Secretary of State.”

“The extent of Mr. Giuliani‚Äôs international experience has been largely limited to giving speeches and consulting work,” the Times wrote. “He lacks any substantive diplomatic experience and has demonstrated poor judgment throughout his career.”
