Hmm, this is interesting. Having successfully proven the Trump-Russia hoax, and with the Obama-era Spygate scandal still looming over much of D.C., White House lawyer Rudy Giuliani publicly announced his intention to go to Ukraine to seek out information he described as potentially “very, very helpful” to President Trump.
Rumors have long swirled about rampant collusion between Obama and Clinton (including some linked closely to Joe Biden) operatives with Ukranian business interests—interests believed to be as illegal as they were profitable.
Via Fox News:
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said in an interview Thursday that he plans to travel to Ukraine to push the country’s leadership on several probes that may prove “very, very helpful” to President Trump, as Republicans continue looking to turn the tables on Democrats and prove that they — not the GOP — were the party that improperly conspired with foreign actors.
Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky, who takes office in June, will assume stewardship of two major ongoing investigations. One concerns evidence that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign may have worked with Ukrainians to illegally help Clinton by revealing damaging information about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
The other investigation pertains to allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in order to take the heat off the prosecutor’s probe into a company that employed his son as a board member.
“I am going to tell him what I know about the people that are surrounding him, and how important it is to do a full, complete and fair investigation,” Giuliani told the New York Times, referring to Zelensky.
“We’re not meddling in an election; we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,” Giuliani continued, when pressed on whether his visit would be appropriate. “And this isn’t foreign policy — I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop. And I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government.”
Giuliani said he expects to travel to Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, in the coming days.
Democrats, in turn, lashed out at Giuliani, accusing the president of “asking a foreign government to investigate his political rival.” But Giuliani dug in, tweeting Friday: “Explain to me why Biden shouldn’t be investigated if his son got millions from a Russian loving crooked Ukrainian oligarch while He was VP and point man for Ukraine.”
…Trump, speaking to Fox News earlier this month, called reports that the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC may have colluded with Ukrainians “big,” and said the results of ongoing Ukrainian law enforcement probes into the matter should be publicized. And Giuliani wrote on Twitter, “Keep your eye on Ukraine.”
“Everyone who loves what America was and could be again should read this book.”
“A powerful warning to a nation that has been ignoring its problems for far too long.”
“This story is so much more than you might think. You have to read it.”
