It seems the Real Rudy was on the Late Show while John Lithgow was playing him under oath. Rupert Murdoch played the same role when giving evidence under oath in the UK following in the steps of Aland Bond before he was sentenced to go to jail. Did they all have the same legal team?

I didn’t even try to check. Why would I try to check? You wouldn’t have a story then.” Said. The. Then. President’s. Lawyer.
