Mukasey: A Giuliani Republican?

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.


Attorney General Michael Mukasey isn’t a big giver when it comes to politics. He has donated only to a single federal candidate since 1989: his old pal Rudy. Mukasey and his wife have donated $5,600 to Giuliani’s presidential campaign, reports the Center for Responsive Politics.

Mukasey and Giuliani have been friends since the 1970s, when the two worked together in the U.S. Attorney’s office. When Giuliani became mayor, Mukasey, by then a federal judge, swore him in. Mukasey’s son Marc also worked in Giuliani criminal law practice and has donated to Giuliani’s campaign, and both Mukaseys have served on Giuliani’s campaign advisory committees. No wonder conservatives don’t like the guy!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
