Testimony by Giuliani Indicates He Was Briefed on Kerik in 00 (NY Times Hit)
NYTimes via Drudge Report ^ | March 30, 2007 | William K. Rashbaum

Posted on 03/29/2007 8:52:01 PM PDT by RDTF

Rudolph W. Giuliani told a grand jury that his former chief investigator remembered having briefed him on some aspects of Bernard B. Kerik’s relationship with a company suspected of ties to organized crime before Mr. Kerik’s appointment as New York City police commissioner, according to court records.

Mr. Giuliani, testifying last year under oath before a Bronx grand jury investigating Mr. Kerik, said he had no memory of the briefing, but he did not dispute that it had taken place, according to a transcript of his testimony.

Mr. Giuliani’s testimony amounts to a significantly new version of what information was probably before him in the summer of 2000 as he was debating Mr. Kerik’s appointment as the city’s top law enforcement officer. Mr. Giuliani had previously said that he had never been told of Mr. Kerik’s entanglement with the company before promoting him to the police job or later supporting his failed bid to be the nation’s homeland security secretary.

In his testimony, given in April 2006, Mr. Giuliani indicated that he must have simply forgotten that he had been briefed on one or more occasions as part of the background investigation of Mr. Kerik before his appointment to the police post.

There is no evidence that Mr. Giuliani knew about the apartment renovation before promoting Mr. Kerik to police commissioner. But the top investigator who briefed Mr. Giuliani in 2000, the transcript shows, was aware that Mr. Kerik’s brother and a close friend had been hired by an affiliate of the company, which for years had been struggling to secure a city license.

-snip-

The transcript of Mr. Giuliani’s testimony was not given to The New York Times by any rival campaign.

Seems small compared to what Feinstein just resigned a position over - where is the top of the fold NY Times story on that one?

WHAT WONDERFUL NEWS! don`t really understand what it means, but, who cares, the NYT is so honest, and never prints garbage, guess we should all be happy about this major story about the GOP front runner.

even if it had a circulation of zero - it would not matter. The new york times is the "head of the snake" in the media complex, it gives the marching orders to the networks and small market papers, for what stories to run with. they don't report the news, they make it.

Maybe Rudy has come down too hard on gays lately?

It's no surprise to me. Giuliuliani is a lefty on all important issues and should be a Democrat.

Ask yourself, why is the NYT printing a hit piece on Giuliani? Do you think they want to have a conservative become president?

Clearly they are doing it, because RG is the only one who is a real threat to the Dems and they want to destroy him in the primay, so they won't have to deal with him later.

So -- consider -- do you want to be the unwitting enabler of the Democrats?

The N.Y. Times has a very long record of doing not only major hit pieces on Rudy, but also as being one of the tentacles of the Clinton octopus team.

Are you a butt pilot yourself or just obsessed by gaydom?

You need to direct that question not to Pissant, but to Rudy, as he's the guy who has been seen in more than a few homosexual 'rights' parades, parades that also had activist pedophiles marching along as well.

Happy to help.

Rudy is not a conservative, his own mother said so:

Helen Giuliani said of her son: "He only became a Republican after he began to get all these jobs from them. He's definitely not a conservative Republican. He thinks he is, but he isn't"

EXACT QUOTE.

Sure, exact quote from "The Nation", one of the most leftists rags around and they would never lie, would they?!

You are hypocritical because you didn't give the link, for people to see what is your "reliable source".
