  1. Rudy being honest about being a crook.

    • @William RoyerSO TRUE. That reality is above feeble thinking!

    • @Jason Owen Shame on you. You call yourself America?
      You are taking Russian disinformation over America intelligence. Sad, so sad
      From Business Insider: John Haltiwanger Nov 19, 2019, 9:22 AM

      Daria Kaleniuk, co-founder of the Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Action Center told The Washington Post, “Shokin was not investigating. He didn’t want to investigate Burisma. Shokin was fired not because he wanted to do that investigation, but quite to the contrary, because he failed that investigation.”

      Yuriy Lutsenko, Ukraine’s former prosecutor general who left the post at the end of August, told Bloomberg in an interview in May that neither Biden nor Hunter are the subject of investigations: “I do not want Ukraine to again be the subject of US presidential elections. Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws — at least as of now, we do not see any wrongdoing. A company can pay however much it wants to its board.”

    • @Bas Smith you are a living example

    • Randy Smith Headstuck

      Nice one, ‘i know you are but what am i’, Bet it works well on playground.
      Ok run along and play. For gods’ sakes stop grabbing yourself.

    Trump: Rudy, where are you?
    Rudy: I’m on the Joe Rogan podcast.


  3. Follow the Money then the rest will unravel

  4. Anyone else would’ve been in jail months ago! Lock ’em all up already! 😡

  5. “She’s about to go through some things”… wow, those were Trump’s words on the call. There is no separation between Giuliani and Trump

    • The mental gymnastics it takes to believe Trump was concerned about corruption in Ukraine but hired Paul Manafort- POSTER BOY FOR UKRAINE CORRUPTION- as his campaign manager is simply mind boggling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RibAQHeDia8&t=3s

    • @Intouched Simplified You get your news from MSNBC so this won’t make any sense to you, but, a person has an attorney to protect them all legal interests. And you screeched for literally years about foreign corruption and foreign influence, accusing Trump of being part of it. It’s totally appropriate for the POTUS to have his lawyer build his defense. Unfortunately, you’ve been so conditioned to hate that you think Trump even declaring his own innocence is somehow “obstruction”. And it’s hilarious that you think Trump is the one facing blowback. There are indictments dropping left and right surrounding Burisma, and yourr warmonger child-sniffer Biden is up to his neck in it. Trump isn’t.

      @Ungha Bungha ok so your saying what trump did was ok?

    • @Intouched Simplified Yeah. It was one of his primary campaign promises, to stamp out corruption, and it was one of the main reasons that I hired him to be POTUS. Nobody can look at the facts and honestly claim there was nothing shady taking place in Ukraine. In order for the Dem case to make any sense, you have to ignore Ukraine interference and you have to pretend Biden/Hillary/Burisma was all above board.

    SDNY is going to Cream Guiliani he is so stupid as Comey (whom in Prison) Stated “Trump will devour your Soul” Giuliani NYC going to bury him! No love lost with NY!

  7. Never regret taking sides with what is right, even if it costs you your career….. Trust me, it’s safer to be on the right side of history.

      “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf.” –Trump, Aug, 2016 **Reality**: 221 club visits, golfed at least 107 times $115 million spent


    • @Sandra Simpson TRUMP 2020

    • doobie s oringes Sep 23, 2019 Apple has announced that it is to manufacture its new 2019 Mac Pro in Austin, Texas, utilizing the same plant where it has been making the previous generation model. … “The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever and we’re proud to be building it in Austin,” said Tim Cook.

    • But…but…have you “tried watching Fox” yet?! Maybe we should also TRY reading the Federalist and Daily Stormer for news. LOL.

    You will be unemployed next year ha ha ha

  9. Hurry up SDNY.

    • This is who Rudy was visiting yesterday.
      Victor Shokin was appointed Prosecutor General of Ukraine on 10 February 2015,
      replacing Vitaly Yarema.[4] He was a controversial appointee due to his
      perceived role in blocking prosecutions against those accused of
      shooting demonstrators in the 2014 Ukrainian revolution.[5] As
      Prosecutor General, he was accused of blocking major cases against
      allies and influential figures and hindering the fight against
      corruption in Ukraine.[6] @t . .

      ” The _TRUTH_ isn’t the _TRUTH_ !! “. Rudy Giuliani

    • @Michael Cook moron!

    • @you2099 yeah, we r so happy having a president always telling the truth¿

    • Dannyboy, they gave up. Didn’t you hear?

  10. Truly Ruskie Rudy selling his soulless body to the highest bidder.

    Just let Rudy continue to talk. He’s hilariously incompetent.

  12. Gareth De Bruyn | December 17, 2019 at 3:14 AM | Reply

    Lol. Now she is corrupt. 🤦‍♂️

  13. I guess he learn a thing or two from going after the mob in his days….

    • But didn’t the Russian mob move into New York during his tenure? Did he move out one mob to make room for another?

    • Who really thinks that rudy or any one else goes after the mob? No rudy made a deal with the mob and they allowed him to bust a few people so he could have the title of the mayor that went after the mob.

    • @Jerome Bowensthese guys are mob and Russian mob please tell me why a Russian ship is sitting 100 miles off the coast and we have been threatened by north Korea there giving us a Christmas gift

    This is going to be an insane period in the history books when this is all said and done.

  15. I hope she sues Rudy cause he just called her corrupt on live Tv. What really gets me with this story is her boss Pompeo never said a word in her defence and stood on the sidelines and allowed her to be thrown under the bus with these false accusations of corruption over her head..

    • She won’t bc she knows he’s right. We all listened to her commit perjury when she testified. When they keep pushing Guiliani on this and try to go after Trump through him, it will all come out and, trolled again, all the dirty Dems w their kids in Ukraine doing dirty deeds to stack their fortunes and create slush funds with the peoples’ stolen $ will be exposed! Happy Holidays!

    • @D.B. Field that’s one massive pile of fact-free 💩💩💩💩.

    • Pompeo is an enabler and a Grub. He only cares about himself and the corrupt people he loves.

  16. If I were Yovanovitch, I’d see Guiliani in court for slander.

    • @Verum illic Spot on. And he is a troll. They aim to get people arguing where no argument exists. And there is no argument that Trump is not a criminal.

    • @Randy Potter Yes, there is.

    • @Xymo Nau Yes 👍 and I see he was emotionally scarred that I stopped responding — after I told him I would have to go, and he said he was done. Kind of a mental case with 4 posts begging me to keep playing his game lol, but what to expect from a Trumpsterfire? 🤷‍♂️

    • @Verum illic He probably likes teasing small animals, too. I saw his posts. Sad, really.

    Rudy should know that there isnt a pardon for state crimes. I hope he enjoys his time behind bars and I hope he thinks it was well worth it to be another stooge for Trump.

  18. “I forced her out because she’s corrupt” is a tough line from someone who appears to be in league (wittingly or otherwise) with the Kremlin.

    Rudy better lawyer up.

  19. Rudi is a ” STOOGE “, SAD and Pathetic TWUMP TWIT.

  20. Republicans are going out of their way to be dirty little traitors tot he United States of America.
