Late last night drumpf fluffin’ delusional former Mayor Rudy Giuliani called off his mission to Ukraine to dig up most likely non-existent dirt on Democratic Presidential hopeful Joe Biden…
“I’ve decided … I’m not going to go to the Ukraine,” Giuliani told Fox News Friday night. “I’m not going to go because I think I’m walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president … in some cases enemies of the United States, and in one case an already convicted person who has been found to be involved in assisting the Democrats with the 2016 election.”
His statement left many unanswered questions about what Giuliani might do about his
Earlier, Giuliani had said he would to travel to Kiev in the coming days to urge the Ukrainian government to conduct a pair of investigations: one on the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s recently concluded investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the other on the involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.
Giuliani’s plan had seemed poised to create an unprecedented moment, that of the lawyer of the president of the United States seeking foreign assistance in damaging his political rivals. To Democrats, it was a blatant evocation of Russia’s meddling on behalf of Trump when he defeated Hillary Clinton.”
That “group of people”, it turns out, include The Ukraine’s President elect, Volodymyr Zelensky, who, apparently doesn’t want to meet with Hiz Zonner Gasbag…
“A controversial plan to leverage Ukrainian politics in the 2020 American election campaign looks to have come unstuck, with The Independent learning president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky may now refuse to meet Mr Trump’s lawyer Rudy Guiliani when he arrives in Kiev later this month.”
The allegation is that Biden might have done something improper to influence the corruption investigation into Burisma, a company his son Hunter once worked for…
Those accusations may have more to do with saving the political fortunes of Ukraine’s top prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko, who is on the outs with the new administration and may be seeking his own foreign allies for HIS 2020 re-election bid.
“The (Giuliani) initiative had followed a curious announcement by Mr Lutsenko in March that he was investigating whether Mr Biden had pushed for the removal of his predecessor in the job, Viktor Shokin, to stop an investigation into his son’s firm.
That Mr Lutsenko’s interpretation did not seem to have any factual basis — Mr Shokin was still very much in office when the investigation was dropped, and only fired several months later — does not seem to have dimmed Mr Guiliani’s enthusiasm.”
One of President elect Zelensky’s political allies thinks he has the dirt on the prosecutor’s sudden enthusiasm for conspiracy theory:
“Everyone understands it is a desperate attempt from a bankrupt prosecutor,” said Sergii Leshchenko, a reformist MP connected to the Zelensky team, and who has also been attacked by Trump allies over his role in publishing the Manafort ledger data.
“Lutsenko doesn’t want to leave the prosecutors office because he has nowhere else to go to….
“Lutshenko has decided his only way to cling onto the prosecutor’s office is with the help of a Trump ally,” he said. “It may not be the last fairytale we hear from him.”
So, unfortunately for us, Rudy doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon.
Watch for him to be gaslighting this made up controversy on the Sunday shows tomorrow.
