Just like President Trump, it looks like Rudy Giuliani is not amused, or bothered by, the Democrats’ constant attacks.
My theory has always been (a) they know they did nothing wrong, and (b) they have the ACTUAL evidence that the Dems did!
How else can you make sense of Rudy’s appearance on Hannity last night?
Oh, and by the way, Memo to Aaron Rupar, whoever you are, it just might not be a “conspiracy”:
Oh hey, we have a theme here.
Did the Democrat talking points memo go out?
Told to use the word "conspiracy"?
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to comment on Joe Biden’s controversial relationship with Ukrainian officials; saying the former Vice President “sold out the country.”
“I knew this back in November. I told you Biden was involved in very, very horrible corruption. Shocking to me. I know people have a hard time believing this, but I would feel the same way if this was a Republican. Selling out the country in this way? Using his office for money? It’s disgraceful,” said Giuliani.
An inside source told Fox News this week that the “whistleblower” who reportedly filed a complaint regarding President Trump’s conversation with the Ukraine leader did not have “first-hand knowledge” of the conversation.
“The whistleblower who sparked a mounting controversy over President Trump’sJuly phone call with Ukraine’s president did not have ‘firsthand knowledge’ of the conversation, a person familiar with the situation told Fox News — even as the issue fuels impeachment calls from Democrats,” reports Fox News. “The source said that it is made clear in the complaint itself that the whistleblower did not have direct knowledge of the July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.”
“Fox News has learned that typically, multiple U.S. officials are on such calls with the president, but this would indicate the whistleblower is not one of those people. It’s unclear if the individual read a transcript of the call, heard about it in conversation, or learned of it another way,” adds Fox.
President Trump slammed initial reports of his conversation with another world leader, saying “Another Fake News story out there – It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem!"
And then here's the bombshell, from our friends over at the Daily Wire:
Trump lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani suggested on Monday night that there was serious evidence that the Obama White House directed Democrats to work with Ukraine to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump.
Giuliani joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night where he detailed the latest developments into the situation regarding Ukraine, which stems from a 2017 Politico investigation that found that Ukraine was working with operatives for the Democratic National Committee to sabotage Trump.
“The reason why the president of the United States had an obligation to ask the president of Ukraine to follow up on these allegations because there is substantial — I don’t want to exaggerate it but pretty close to overwhelming evidence, including a finding by a Ukrainian court that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats cooperated with Ukrainians with the order coming directly from the White House … to dig up dirt on her political opponent, and they did,” Giuliani said.
Giuliani then shifted his comments to focus on then-Vice President and now current Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and the allegations surrounding his Ukraine corruption scandal.
“In this case, Biden sold his office for millions,” Giuliani said. “Is there anybody that believes that Ukraine or China were paying for Hunter Biden’s expertise? Or do you have the common sense to realize they were buying Joe Biden’s office? And that is very damaging to the United States. Joe Biden was sent to Ukraine to, in part, deal with corruption, and he helped to corrupt the Ukraine. He is a laughingstock.”
“We are [a laughingstock] because we talk about corruption and this guy puts his incompetent son to work for the most crooked oligarch in Russia? I mean, it is outrageous,” Giuliani continued. “The only really sad part of this … is how much in the tank and how corrupt this media has become. They have corruption staring them in the face and they closed their eyes to it, and then they make up charges against President Trump that aren’t true. They don’t look at this whistle-blower. He is giving them hearsay evidence.”
“And I’m going to tell you one other thing — Biden’s corruption helped to cover up all of the allegations of collusion because there was a company involved run by George Soros which was involved in the investigation, and that was closed down to cut off all of the proof, the additional proof, of just how far the Democrats went in corrupting the 2016 election and in corrupting the Ukraine,” Giuliani concluded.
Rudy Giuliani is standing firm.
On Sunday — armed with document after document that he held up to the camera — President Donald Trump’s personal attorney doubled down on his corruption charges against former Vice President Joe Biden and the connection between the Democratic Party and Ukraine. He also cast doubt on whether he would testify before a House panel.
During a contentious interview on ABC’s “This Week,“ Giuliani said, “I am defending my client the best way I know how. This is not about getting Joe Biden in trouble, this is about proving that Donald Trump was framed by the Democrats.”
Giuliani started his attacks on the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. He denied ever courting the theory that Ukrainians hacked the Democratic National Committee and then framed the Russian government. Pivoting, he said there was still “a load of evidence that Ukrainians created false information” for the Obama White House. He also alleged “the collusion that they claim happened in Russia happened in the Ukraine with Hillary Clinton."
“The Ukrainians came to me,” Giuliani said. “I didn't go to them.”
Giuliani has previously called for Ukraine to investigate to determine if Biden — while he was vice president — threatened to withhold monetary aid for Ukraine and pushed for the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor in order to help his son, Hunter Biden, who held a board position on a Ukrainian energy company. Giuliani has been at the center of the controversy over Trump’s July 25th phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine in which Trump discussed a possible investigation of the Bidens.
If Trump hadn't asked Ukraine to investigate Biden in his July 25 phone call, Giuliani said Sunday, “He would have violated the Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution.”
The Bidens have long denied wrongdoing, and the vice president’s backers have argued that Biden was pressuring Ukraine’s government as part of an international campaign against corruption. But Giuliani brought allegations of corruption against the Biden to the forefront again Sunday, adding that they received at least $1 billion from China and their work there should be further looked into.
Appearing on CBS later Sunday to push the claims, Giuliani also addressed Kurt Volker's Friday resignation — he was the U.S. envoy to Ukraine — and reiterated he contacted Ukraine officials at the request of the State Department: "I have all of the text messages to prove it."
Giuliani said Volker "did his job honorably and decently," debriefing him on what to ask a top Zelensky aide and setting up meetings for him. Asked if Secretary of State Mike Pomepo knew about those meetings with Ukrainians, however, Giuliani initially said "he did not." He later amended, saying that he talked to Pompeo last week and the secretary said he was "aware of it."
Throughout his ABC interview, Giuliani and host Goerge Stephanopoulos had fiery back-and-forths, disagreeing about media partisanship and the factual accuracy of some of Giuliani's claims.
Heard from Giuliani: “Let’s get on to the point.” “Let me finish.” “George, is it possible for you to ever treat a charge against a Democrat in the same way you treat a charge against a Republican?”
Heard from Stephanopoulos: “Do you accept that’s not true?” “Are you telling me if there was evidence that Barack Obama was calling up the Russians saying, 'I want you to look into Donald Trump,' that you wouldn’t be blowing that up?”
In a testy end to the interview, Giuliani said he might not cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee, at least until Democrats removed chairman Adam Schiff and put in someone “neutral.”
Now THAT is a good looking hat!
Only while they last!
