  • A Witch Hunt or an Investigation by a Brutal Book?

    The nation has paused this week from its toxic political battles to remember the kindness and gentleness of President George H.W. Bush. He was kind to Bill Clinton, who defeated him in 1992, and to Ross Perot, whose unusual entry into the presidential race that year siphoned conservative voters away from Bush and enabled Clinton to amass a majority of electoral votes with only 43 percent of the popular vote. The Bush I knew was the post-presidential one, who, by all appearances, harbored no bitterness or sense of defeat. That was the consistent theme running through nearly all the reminiscences...
  • Giuliani says Flynn offenses like 'spitting on the sidewalk,' calls Mueller team 'sick puppies'

    President Trump's attorney Rudolph Giuliani told Fox News on Tuesday night that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had admitted to offenses comparable to "spitting on the sidewalk" after Special Counsel Robert Mueller recommended minimal prison time for the former three-star Army general. In a sentencing memorandum and a heavily redacted addendum filed Tuesday evening, Mueller's team said Flynn had met with investigators 19 times and provided "substantial" help to investigators about "several ongoing investigations." In addition, prosecutors said Flynn had provided "firsthand information about the content and context of interactions between the [Trump] transition team and Russian government officials."...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani bolstered the gubernatorial campaign of Ron DeSantis on Sunday in Daytona. “America’s Mayor,” who was in prime form at his first stop for the campaign, was most quotable when bashing Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum. Calling Gillum a “socialist” and a “failed mayor running for governor,” Giuliani said the election would be a ten-point spread “if the media covered it fairly.” “How about just fair coverage? How about the good things Ron DeSantis might have done … instead of the one or two things he might have done wrong, I don’t know what they...

    I would like to propose that the more or less vacant position of Attorney-General of the United States be filled by Rudy Giuliani. The current office holder, Jeff Sessions, has neutralized himself to such an extent that the position appears more or less vacant. Rudy Giuliani might be the best suited Trump loyalist for this position. It needs somebody who will aggressively prosecute treasonous globalists for high crimes and misdemeanours that are fairly evident to many. Enough is enough, if the objective is to drain the swamp, then sleepy Jeff is not much of a help. What do you think?...

    President Donald Trump’s legal team is crafting a “counter-report” that will seek to delegitimize Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and present countervailing arguments. Trump’s personal attorney, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, told The Daily Beast in an interview on Thursday that part of his report would examine whether the “initiation of the investigation was…legitimate or not.”

    Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Trump, appeared on Hannity Wednesday night to explain why the legal team rejected special counsel Robert Mueller's term for an interview. Giuliani said the "real story" is that the case isn't going to fizzle, "it's going to blow up on them," referring to the Mueller team. "The reality is, the real story is not that this case isn’t going to fizzle," he said to host Sean Hannity. "It's going to blow up on them. The real question is, what we talked about before, there's a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about...

    CHICAGO — At least 11 people were shot to death and about 70 wounded in a weekend burst of violence in Chicago that instantly became a political issue when President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, blamed the carnage on longtime Democratic rule in the city. Police on Monday attributed the dozens of shootings to gangs, the illegal flow of guns and sweltering August heat that drew more people outside. The victims ranged in age from 11 to 63, according to police. One teenage girl died after being shot in the face. A teenage boy was fatally shot riding a bike...

"I haven't spoken to the President about it directly, but if he did ask my opinion ... my political advice would be not to sit down with Bob Mueller," Lewandowski said Thursday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront."

    President Trump's legal team is becoming more and more convinced it should ignore questions by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News' "Hannity" on Monday night, saying it's "highly unlikely" the Trump team will meet again with prosecutors. Giuliani's comments underscored the newly combative tenor of Trump's camp towards Mueller ahead of the trial of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, set to start Tuesday in a Virginia federal court. "Given the revelations of the last three or four weeks, we've gone further away from the idea of answering any questions from them," Giuliani told Sean...

    President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani says key players from the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 attended another meeting days before but it was on an unrelated subject and the president wasn't there. Giuliani gave several confusing answers about the meeting in morning TV interviews – then called in to 'Fox and Friends' to try to clean up any misconceptions about it. He said he put out information himself to try to head off media reports that gave the wrong impression. He said on CNN that the meeting occurred two days before the June 9 Trump Tower meeting that...

    Washington (AFP) - Donald Trump's personal lawyer on Sunday called for an investigation into special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, claiming it was tainted from the outset under former FBI director James Comey. "We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump administration has been investigated," Rudy Giuliani said on CNN's "State of the Union." "This is a case where it's crying out for someone to investigate the investigators," he later told CBS. Giuliani's comments were the latest in a barrage of attacks on the probe by the president and his lawyers as Mueller appears to be...

"I think the report of Horowitz, the [inspector general], and the Justice Department will confirm that Comey acted improperly with with regard to the Hillary Clinton investigation," Giuliani said an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis. “The first thing we are going to get is a report from Inspector General Horowitz on Comey’s handling of Hillary, which I think is...

But she has posed nude for GQ magazine back in 2000.” As the audience applauded, she added, “I’m not comparing the two, posing nude...

    President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani doubled down Thursday about his comments that Stormy Daniels lacks credibility because of her profession, according to a report. “If you’re a (feminist) and you support the porn industry, you should turn in your credentials,” Giuliani told CNN. He said the porn vixen has “no reputation” to be damaged. “If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. I may be old fashioned, I dunno,” Giuliani said. “The business you were in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight.” When asked whether his comments...

Mr Giuliani told a business conference in Israel that Mr Trump’s tough line had forced the North Korean leader’s hand.

Mueller’s team includes “13 highly partisan Democrats … trying very, very hard to frame him to get him in trouble when he hasn’t done anything wrong,” Giuliani said at a conference in Israel Giuliani’s latest comments fall in line with his Sunday attack on the Mueller probe. In an interview with CNN, Giuliani said he and the president are “more convinced” that the investigation is “rigged” after it was revealed that...
