Trump Drops Bombshell Giuliani Announcement

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Saturday praised Rudy Giuliani one day after a media report claimed the former New York City mayor, who is now Trump’s personal attorney, was being investigated for possible lobbying violations.

The New York Times reported that Giuliani was being investigated by federal prosecutors for his actions related to Ukraine, including efforts to allegedly undermine Marie Yovanovitch, the former American ambassador to Ukraine who was recalled by Trump. The report did not name its sources.

Trump responded with a ringing endorsement of Giuliani.

“So now they are after the legendary “crime buster” and greatest Mayor in the history of NYC, Rudy Giuliani,” Trump wrote. “He may seem a little rough around the edges sometimes, but he is also a great guy and wonderful lawyer. Such a one sided Witch Hunt going on in USA. Deep State. Shameful!”

Earlier last week, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman — both associates of Giuliani — were accused of campaign finance violations, according to Fox News. The men — both naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in the old Soviet Union, according to The Atlantic — were accused of using a limited liability company to make political contributions, violating federal rules.

Giuliani has said both men helped him collect information about Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, concerning Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine.

On Thursday, Trump was asked during a media opportunity about the two men. After he said he did not know them, he was told by a reporter that a photograph exists of them with Trump, according to a White House media pool report.

“Now, it’s possible I have a picture with them, because I have a picture with everybody. I have a picture with everybody here. But somebody said there may be a picture or something where — at a fundraiser or somewhere. And so — but I have pictures with everybody,” Trump said.

“I don’t know if there’s anybody I don’t have pictures with,” he said.

On Friday, Trump was asked during a media availability whether Giuliani was still his attorney.

“Well, I don’t know. I haven’t spoken to Rudy. I spoke to him yesterday, briefly. He’s a very good attorney, and he has been my attorney. Yeah, sure,” Trump said in reply, according to a White House media pool report.

Giuliani told CBS he has no knowledge of being under investigation, but said that if prosecutors are looking at him and leaked it to the media, it shows they are “politically motivated.”

Giuliani has said the Bidens crossed a line in dealing with Ukraine and on Friday continued his attacks.

The former vice president took a shot back at  Giuliani.

“The guy’s a thug, Giuliani. No, he’s a thug. I know him,” Biden told guests at a Hollywood fundraiser Friday, according to Deadline.

    The deep state will be collapsing very soon and a lot of people will be indicted, they are in desperation mode right now, they are trying anything and everything to get rid of Trump and his whole administration and have been since day one.

    • Goodforall says:

      I am more than ready to see that!

    • Matt says:

      Much as I’d love it to be true, I ain’t holding my breath I’m afraid!

      • Brian G says:

        agreed. I’m wondering how many Republican Senators are going to have to commit Arkanicide for the rest of them to be scared into voting for removal of Trump… They got to Scalia; so nobody is safe.

    • Roger says:

      The democrats have met their Waterloo! They have grossly underestimated President Trump, he is not the push over that they thought or should I say hoped he was!

      Now if Adam Schiff were President, like that would ever happen, they would have take that puny little wimp down in less than three months!

      They are never going to take President Trump down! Wake up America and vote Republican in 2020, the only other choices are don’t vote or vote for an idiot/democrat, same thing!

  • William John Meegan says:

    Why has not this so called investigation investigated Hillary and her criminal gang conduct in the Ukraine?

    Is this investigation team OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE by only investigating Republicans and not Democrats? I believe every member of this investigation team has to be arrested for treason. The death sentence is the only punishment that will satisfy me: A USA CITIZEN.

    Is this part of the Democratic Party plan to overturn the Constitution of the United States?

    • Brian G says:

      Fear not. President Trump and his people are going to win this; and expose the Deep State. Barr and Dunham are straight shooters and will have plenty of time in the next 5 years to finish this business off for good.

    • Eleanor Cummings says:

      ”Is this part of the Democratic Party plan to overturn the Constitution of the United States?” Yrs, it is, and some of them have advocated for this, saying the Constitution is obsolete. Look up – Democrats/Amending the Constitution. Right now, Schiff is jumping the gun by showing us what it will be like if they succeed.

  • Mary says:

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
    If anyone is a “Thug” it’s you, Biden and your son Hunter.
    Qualified as “THUGS”!!!!!

    How quickly you forget what you’ve done, Biden and son!!!

    You will LOSE thé election. Corporate Corrupt Crumb!!

    The entire Democratic Party is so currupt- obama and Hillary need to be indicted in fact throw in Kerry and the CIA, fbi

      Lying Adam Schiff
      Adam Schiff used his position as Chairperson of the Intelligence Committee to claim that President Trump said something in his phone call with the new President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky that was totally false, which he later tried to pass off as a parody in part. It wasn’t a parody in whole or in part, it was a blatant lie from the mouth of a low life moron who should not be within 1,000 miles of Washington D.C.
      Adam Schiff’s sole intent was to plant a poison pill in the minds of millions of American voters or anyone else that might be listening while in my opinion, he was making a damned fool of himself! Even if I hadn’t read the full transcript of the phone call I wouldn’t have believed that President Trump spoke those asinine words and anyone that did has to be excessively stupid. “thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
      It is not just wrong, it is unlawful for a sitting Congressperson to lie about any other person, it violates their own oath of office, it violates the Constitution of the United States and it is a sin in the eyes of GOD! Any Congressperson that lies should be censured and expelled from Congress, there is no EXCUSE for lying.
      The Russian collusion illusion was nothing but a witch hunt like President Trump called it from the beginning, it was a waste of more than two and a half years of baseless investigations, a waste of more than 40 million taxpayer dollars that resulted in zero charges against President Trump. Then the dissatisfied democrats still had to have a hearing because they thought they could somehow produce evidence that Mueller couldn’t but the only thing they accomplished as far as I could tell was making Mueller look like an idiot and it appeared that he most likely didn’t do the investigating himself since he seemed to know less about it that any of the Republican Congresspersons asking him questions. That’s not in my PURVIEW? Witch hunt one has ended, witch hunt two begins!
      When is the Republican party going to grow a backbone and take these corrupt, lawless democrats down? There are 197 Republicans in the House of Representative and less than ten of them as far as I can see are speaking out to the American people and rallying support for their President or their party.
      President Trump did more for America and the American people in one year than the previous four presidents did in 28 years!
      Since President Trump was elected millions of new jobs have been created, hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing jobs, over seven million lifted off of welfare/food stamps lowest minority unemployment in history, lowest female unemployment in more than 70 years, a robust stock market, a booming economy and one of the largest tax cuts in the history of America, all because of our amazing President’s policies! Negotiating better trade deals for America and the American people, the first President in history with the guts to take on China head on and demand fair trade between our two countries!
      Negotiating with other world leaders in an effort to bring world peace! The first President in history to step foot into North Korea and the first President in history to realize it is better to try to turn your perceived enemies into your friends instead of continuing to call them and cause them to remain an enemy! President Trump is bringing our soldiers home, ending human sacrifice in useless never ending wars that have cost the United States more than eight trillion dollars!
      Actions speak louder than words and President Trump’s actions speaks volumes for America and the American people!
      Keep America Great! Greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!
      What the hell more could anyone want in a President? Trump/Pence 2020 landslide!
      Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS! President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! Keep America Great! Greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

    • Brian says:

      That’s what this clown show is about. They’re desperately grasping at straws to stop Barr and Durham from investigating the Obama Administration’s illegal doings. They were so sure that Hillary was going to win, and then they’d be able to sweep it all under the rug. ha ha. hahaha…hahahahahahhaha

  • Lfty64 says:

    Guiliani cleaned up New York. There is no denial about that by anyone with brains. Now, what has Biden ever done in his forty years in Government outside of lining his and his families pockets. Please someone tell me a Joe Biden accomplishment!

  • MaryKay Winkelman says:

    We all know about the corruption. Now we need to hear the silent, uninvolved Republicans to stand up and fight to protect our president and our constitution!

    • MaryKay Winkelman says:

      Poorly written but all know what I meant! Sorry

    • Doris_Speaks says:

      Boy have you ever got that right MaryKay and those include the Republicans sitting on their butts at home, watching the show and doing nothing. Can’t even pick up a phone and call their congressmen. If it isn’t put to a stop, we need to vote them all out of office…Dems and Republicans and start with a new slate!!

          Just a minor point. I understand that there are a LOT of RINOs in DC. The fact, though, that there are only a dozen, or so, Republicans speaking out in defense of Trump, and America, is because there are only a dozen, or so, Republicans that the media consider to be ‘go to’ people. The same names have been in the news for years. (Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul, etc.) This is the first time I’ve heard of Devin Nunes; and Jim Jordan… and everything they say makes me happy. Nunes knows the entire story of what went down with the Obama Administration and the Clinton Killing Machine. I love the way he just lets little bits of it slip out into the media so that we know he’s on top of things. I agree with your assessment that Donald Trump is the best thing that has happened to America in my lifetime (I’m 55). Everyone sings the praises of Ronald Reagan; but Reagan’s administration still holds the record for the most members of a Cabinet who were brought up on criminal charges… including Edwin Meese, who was the Attorney General. Reagan’s administration ‘Brought the Biff’ (a wonderful Australian saying that means put some fight into) into American lives, but Trump’s administration is bringing the biff into ALL of America… and he’s doing it by the book.

  • Daddy K says:

    NOT TO WORRY. Big Billy Barr is on it. ADMITTED FELONS like Jim Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Eric Holder, and probably uncooperative Chris Wray and the rest of the TRASH & SCUM in the FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc, etc, who strut around with their noses in the air could end up in prison after a 5-minute trial. When is Barr going to do something??? So far he’s as worthless as Jeff Sessions. Are we REALLY a TWO-TIER justice system? Maybe he is one of them and needs to go to prison himself.

    • chrisVN says:

      It all leads back to obumass, he must have ok’ed it!!

    • Doris_Speaks says:

      Barr is doing something….he’s conducting an investigation and will have the FACTS when he starts indicting people and not “anonymous sources”. Where have you been????

      • eebedah says:

        Exactly Doris, unlike democrats, conservatives gather facts and proceed under the rule of law…dems din’t never have. They skirt the law

    • Susan says:

      If you knew about how the laws worked you would know that slow and thorough is the ONLY way to go to convict these career politicians/crooks. Get ALL of the evidence on them and take them all down. This is another reason they want our President gone, so this investigation will cease.

    • Brian says:

      Bit of a left turn you took there at the end, Daddy K. First you name all of the people that Barr is investigating (and well done for knowing that Chris Wray is obstructing the investigation by refusing to unredact FBI files until after the 2020 election… it makes me wonder what Trump’s plan is for him; because Trump knows that Barr needs those files in order to get all of the dirty players. Looks like Wray is going to end up getting fired as well) … but you left out a name. Susan Rice. Anyway, you’re spot on in saying that Barr is investigating all of these people, and John Durham is helping him. These two aren’t going to let anyone slip through the cracks. Your left turn at the end where you criticize Barr for not moving quickly enough… A) You’ve already pointed out that Wray is obstructing a proper investigation, and B) Slow and steady wins the race when you’re investigating corruption committed by a former President. Obama will be named, and shamed. I don’t think he’ll be indicted; but lots of his administration will be. Pass the popcorn, this is going to be beautiful when it all comes out.

  • Proud vet says:

    Let’s see the communist party is getting by with it again with one of their dumbest and Congress Biden and his sons this is the second one now the first one a drug thing in his car now this one over here on money issue and you know what this is the worst crime of all yet we’re going to go tag after something that really doesn’t concern the American people after all George Soros has been funding all the Democrat/communist events in this country that goes against conservativism and its people running for the Congress and the Senate and president, but that’s all right George Soros has collapsed other countries before, nothing here .

  • Maggietish says:

    Giuliani is right. The deep state is scared to death of him because he is a no nonsense honest patriot. He is America’s Mayor who inspired this Nation and kept New York and the people going after 9/11. He cleaned up New York while he was Mayor and left it solvent. Biden is doing an awful lot of name-calling and threats to anyone who is disclosing the corruption that went on with him and his Son with Ukraine and China when he was VP. The deep state is collapsing and they know it. The Dems are committing political suicide and they’re too arrogant to even consider that. When William Barr finishes his investigation this Nation will finally have long overdue justice against Hillary Clinton, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, McCabe, Obama and the rest of their gang of traitors.

  • Doris_Speaks says:

    Yeah, sure, Guiliani is a “thug”. He only took NYC that had the highest crime rate in the nation and cleaned it out and then, with the help of the FBI took down the Mob. If he is a thug, I want him on my side!

    • Brian G says:

      Exactly!! Giuliani IS a Thug…and I’m glad he is. He’s exactly the kind of thug that you want when you’re dealing with corrupt Deep Staters. William Barr is a no nonsense kind of guy; but the Federal Prosecutor that he brought in, John Durham, is ALSO a thug who isn’t going to be intimidated by the Clinton Killing Machine. The might have gotten away with killing Scalia; but they can’t kill everyone.

  • michael says:

    The media along with Obama are the head of this anti American snake. the media and its leaders needs investigating.

    • Brian says:

      No need, as you’ll soon see more and more REAL whistleblowers, from the media, start to call out their bosses for their intentional slanting of what they deliver as ‘news’. Good journalists won’t sit on their hands while the truth is being swept under the rug.

  • neo says:

    The New York Times reported that Giuliani was being investigated by federal prosecutors for his actions related to Ukraine, including efforts to allegedly undermine Marie Yovanovitch, the former American ambassador to Ukraine who was recalled by Trump. The report did not name its sources.

    AS ALWAYS “the report did not name it’s sources….meaning somebody has a wish list they are hoping to make come true….even IF it is a false claim..(a report by the New York Crimes says it all)

  • SusieQue says:

    Hunter said he would leave his position on the Board if his father became president but he was keeping the money. Why? Was the money laundered and mostly given back?
