I wanted to put together just a few of the reasons we are late in the game for Trump to start throwing Rudy Colludy under the bus. It was yesterday that Trump told serial sexual abuser and loofah fanatic Bill O’Reilly this over the radio:

O’Reilly: “What was Rudy Giuliani doing in Ukraine on your behalf?”
Trump: “Well you have to ask that to Rudy, but Rudy, I don’t even know, he was going to go to Ukraine, and I think he cancelled the trip. You know Rudy has other clients other than me.”
O’Reilly: “So you didn’t direct him to go there on your behalf?”
Trump: “No!”

     In the so-called “perfect” so-called transcript:

Trump to Zelensky: “Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man … I would like him to call you…. Rudy very much knows what’s happening, and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him, that would be great.”

Testimony of Ambassador Gordon Sondland:

“I followed the directions of the President. We worked with Mr. Giuliani because the President directed us to do so.”

Testimony from Ambassador Volker:

“I know that Mr. Giuliani reported to President Trump.”

Tweet from Rudy Giuliani:

“The investigation I conducted concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption, was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges….”

Quote from Giuliani:

“I don’t do anything that involves my client without speaking with my client”

From The New York Times, May 9, 2019:

… And in recent days, Mr. Giuliani reached out through intermediaries to request a meeting with Mr. Zelensky, he said, adding, “It’s not confirmed yet.”

If the meeting does occur, Mr. Giuliani said, “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.”

He said his efforts in Ukraine have the full support of Mr. Trump. He declined to say specifically whether he had briefed him on the planned meeting with Mr. Zelensky, but added, “He basically knows what I’m doing, sure, as his lawyer.”

It seems that the president’s “personal attorney” Rudy Giuliani was very much a topic of interest in the Impeachment hearing already. I looked up the name “Giuliani” on each of the following CBS transcripts to find out how many times it came up during that witness’s testimony:

Ambassador Taylor …..…….. 68 times
Ambassador Volker …..…… 103 times
Ambassador Yovanovitch … 61 times
State Dept. Official Kent ….. 73 times
Dr. Fiona Hill (NSC) ………….. 66 times
Ambassador Sondland …… 116 times

Next I suppose that Trump will say he hardly knew Giuliani, and then, after that, he’ll say that the name doesn’t ring any bells and, Was he the tall one in the Backstreet Boys?”

  1. He said the same thing about Micheal Cohen. He always tries to distance himself from anyone when there seems to be trouble. He did it to pooopadooopalas, remember he was just the cofefve boy. Typical pattern for a guilty mind

  2. Same routine. Papadopulas just the covfefe boy. Manafort only worked for us a few days, didn’t know him (7 months), Cohen, did a little work for me a few times (10 years), Epstein, Giuliani’s goons , didn’t know them either(despite photos), Rudy has lots of clients & was probably working for them. Yeah right. Everybody in State Department is lying which is why trump didn’t want them to testify & withheld documents because that’s what innocent people do.
