Rudy Giuliani Tag

As you may know, the New York Post has been locked out of its Twitter account because of the story they recently broke about the Biden family's alleged corruption in Ukraine. Twitter claimed it was clamping down on unverified and potentially dangerous news stories to justify their punishment of the Post. But now, dozens of people who work in media have been gleefully retweeting a hoax meant to smear former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Will they be locked out of their accounts? Don't hold your breath.

I haven't followed closely the saga of Joe Biden's alleged family conflicts in Ukraine and China when he was Vice President, but I'm aware that claims and counterclaims have been percolating through the mainstream and non-mainstream media and in the Democrat primary field. Being in the position of just hearing about it and seeing reactions, I'm a typical news consumer. And what I'm sensing, and have sensed for some time, is that Ukraine may be to Biden's campaign what emails were to Hillary's campaign. And China could get there too.

The long-awaited release of the Mueller report revealed, unequivocally, that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election. However, Mueller's decision to lay out the case against Trump with regard to obstruction, and doing so without pursuing indictments against him or anyone else in his circle, has had  predictable results: the left is screaming for Trump's scalp, and the Trump White House and his supporters are declaring vindication.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that his legal team reached out to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office after BuzzFeed dropped a supposed bombshell that Trump told former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. Giuliani said that both sides "agreed a significant portion of it was false."

Rudy Giuliani's role in the Trump defense against the Mueller onslaught is part lawyer, and a bigger part public perception shaping. About a month ago I wondered what Rudy was thinking when he suggested Trump should have a sit-down interview with Mueller, Rudy’s terrible, horrible, no good idea about Trump sitting for a Mueller interview to speed things up:

Friday afternoon, former New York City Mayor and Trump supporter, Rudy Giuliana announced he no longer wished to be considered for Secretary of State. "This is not about me; it is about what is best for the country and the new administration. Before I joined the campaign I was very involved and fulfilled by my work with my law firm and consulting firm, and I will continue that work with even more enthusiasm. From the vantage point of the private sector, I look forward to helping the President-elect in any way he deems necessary and appropriate," Giuliana said in a statement. Giuliana will remain Vice-Chairman of Trump's transition team.

Last week, we reported on Morning Joe ripping the notion of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State, with Joe Scarborough saying "he’s temperamentally not qualified to be, and he’s not qualified to be it based on any experience or training or any contacts." This morning, the show was still on its anti-Rudy rampage, with Scarborough stating: "it's one of these things that everybody says off camera. I'm going to tell you it to you on camera . . . Even people close to Trump say Rudy Giuliani mentally is a few steps slower than he was several years ago."
