Giuliani Faces U.S. Probe on Campaign Finance, Lobbying Breaches

 
  • Probe of lawyer presents a threat to Trump’s presidency
  • Giuliani has become a central figure in impeachment inquiry
 
.........investigated by federal prosecutors for possible campaign finance violations and a failure to register as a foreign agent as part of an active investigation into his financial dealings, according to three U.S. officials.
 
The probe of Giuliani, which one official said could also include possible charges on violating laws against bribing foreign officials or conspiracy, presents a serious threat to Trump’s presidency from a man that former national security adviser John Bolton has called a “hand grenade.”
 
A second official said Giuliani’s activities raise counterintelligence concerns as well, although there probably wouldn’t be a criminal charge related to that.........

3 witnesses so far and no evidence has been presented of any offense.
 
The first 2 (permanent) diplomats had no direct knowledge, just overhearing things.
 
The 3rd one had no knowledge, not even hearsay!
 
This is a travesty.

You know who has firsthand knowledge, Mr. Giuliani? You do.
 
Why not show up, raise your right hand to swear to tell the truth under penalty of perjury, and then explain to the whole country how everything you did was aboveboard, legal and correct?
 
Instead, silence.

WOW: @RudyGiuliani seems to suggest he has dirt that would prevent TRUMP from turning on him: “I’ve seen things written like ‘he is going to throw me under the bus.’ When they say that, I say ‘he isn’t, but I have insurance.” Asserts he as a “very good relationship” with Trump.

I wonder if Jeffrey Epstein had an insurance policy with the same broker?

NEWS: Subpoenas indicate a broad federal investigation into possible money laundering, obstruction of justice & campaign finance violations. Among the entities the subpoenas seek records on: Giuliani Partners. w/ @rebeccadobrien @shelbyholliday
 
Giuliani tells @WSJ he hasn't been contacted by investigators. “There’s obviously a concerted effort to spread as many lies about me as possible, to destroy my reputation so that I’m not credible when I continue to reveal all of the massive evidence of criminality by the Bidens.”

As Trump now claims that he doesn't know what Giuliani was doing with Ukraine, remember that on the Trump-Zelensky phone call, Trump told Zelensky: "Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man ... I would like him to call you."

The entire article is worth a read.  I'll include some kid bits ..

The Plum Line

Opinion

Giuliani just confessed to the crime. He also revealed something bigger.

....

Two new developments attest to this point: a remarkable pair of revelatory tweets from Giuliani, and a tour de force of reporting in The Post, which reveals that Trump routinely communicated throughout the whole saga with Giuliani on unsecured devices, which may have been vulnerable to monitoring by Russia.

Giuliani’s tweets are revealing, and not in a good way

“The conversation about corruption in Ukraine was based on compelling evidence of criminal conduct by then VP Biden,” Giuliani tweeted, referring to Joe Biden, the intended target of “investigations” Trump and Giuliani pressured Ukraine to announce.

To empirically grounded observers, this will blow up a key Trump defense: that in conditioning official acts on getting Ukraine to announce the investigations he wanted, he was correctly concerned with cleaning up corruption there.

...............

The Biden corruption narrative Giuliani has worked to validate has been thoroughly debunked. But Giuliani can make it true by saying it, and by producing fake “evidence” backing it up.

This amounts to more than conventional political lying. You see this in Giuliani’s crucial next step: the creation of a disinformational narrative hermetically sealed off from outside facts can magically transform even a demand for investigations into Biden from a corrupt demand that a foreign power help rig our election by smearing a political opponent into a virtuous demand for investigations into “corruption.”

.........

This scandal is all about disinformation

Making this narrative “true,” via the triumph of disinformation, is at the core of this entire scandal. It is why the White House meeting and hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid were conditioned on getting Ukraine to release statements validating that narrative with disinformation, along with another fictional narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in 2016, in collusion with Democrats.

Meanwhile, Giuliani is literally producing a fake “documentary” that will “prove” these theories. Trump’s attorney general, William P. Barr, is traveling the world to try to validateparts of the Ukraine-2016 lie, and he’s even preparing to dispute the Justice Department inspector general’s conclusion that it’s nonsense.

You cannot watch House Republicans, or Sean Hannity, rant about this bundle of theories without concluding we’re witnessing something very different from routine political lying here.

........

Trump’s unsecured connection

The Post documents in extraordinary detail that unsecured communications between Trump and Giuliani were vulnerable to Russian eavesdropping throughout their efforts to extort Ukraine. As experts note, this likely means Russia knew of them in real time — possibly before the whistleblower first exposed them.

The president's personal lawyer pushes unfounded conspiracy theories
and lobs insults in rambling interview with New York Magazine;
 
expresses hope that he will be picked to defend the president in Senate impeachment trial.
 

Giuliani says he's 'more of a Jew' than Holocaust survivor George Soros

Asked if the comments were made in jest, Giuliani told NBC News, "I'm more Jewish than half my friends."

 

........“The anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and false allegations espoused by Rudolph Giuliani and his cronies are aimed at fomenting hatred, undermining democracy, as well as distracting from the impeachment process and the critically important national security and constitutional questions before Congress,” Silber said.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, tweeted,

"Opposing Soros isn’t what’s #antiSemitic. Saying that he controls ambassadors, employs FBI agents and isn’t 'Jewish enough' to be demonized is."............

Giuliani on Lev Parnas's exclusive description, to Reuters, of a meeting with a Venezuelan under criminal investigation. “Lev Parnas has no right to be talking about that meeting,” Giuliani said. “It was a confidential meeting - if it did happen.”

Yes, this bozo was once mayor of New York.

Now Rudy is at the very center of the trump impeachment.

Can you imagine proposing to commit a crime against the Constitution and asking somebody as loopy as Giuliani to run it for you?

This is better than a movie.

Borat HONEY TRAPS Giuliani: Baron Cohen tricks Trump's lawyer into going back to hotel room with 'Borat's daughter' and is filmed lying on bed with his hand down his pants in shocking new movie

34674784-0-image-m-1_1603303348586.jpg

Hands down, Rudy Giuliani might star in one of the most awkward scenes in Sacha Baron Cohen's new 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,' which will be released on Amazon Prime Friday. The Guardian reported that Giuliani is interviewed by Borat's 'daughter' Tutar, posing as a conservative reporter, who then brings him to a hotel room, where he reclines on a bed and seemingly puts his hand down his pants, only to be interrupted by Cohen's Borat character. 'She's 15. She's too old for you,' Cohen screams and waves Giuliani off his 'daughter,' played by actress Maria Bakalova. Giuliani described the situation in July, but neglected to mention he may have been caught in a compromising position. 'This guys comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say a pink transgender outfit,' President Donald Trump's personal lawyer told Page Six at The New York Post. 'It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had a beard, bare legs, and wasn't waht I would call distractingly attractive.' Giuliani didn't recognize the man as Cohen right away. He also called the cops. 'This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,' the ex- New York City mayor said. The incident occurred at the Mark Hotel in New York City.
