  1. I’d love to see the “Trump Impeachment defense task force” try and defend this lmao.

  2. Guiliani should move to Ukraine permanently and offer his brilliant legal mind on national television. What could possibly go wrong? 🤦‍♂️

  3. Who is paying Rudy. He’s acting as a campaign opperative. If he is donating his services, it is an illegal contribution.

      Saltponds239 Just go back to sleep, you have nothing intelligent to add so you won’t be missed in the slightest

    • @Frank Winkhorst why don’t you look at history and see who Trump is like . I will give some examples Stallin and Hitler. One day soon I want be able to say this because of people like you.

  4. Ten counts of obstruction. Ten times Rudy talked to this guy. Can’t say they don’t go big when they break law.

      @Capture It Live I am not emotional just scared for the country knowing the corruption that is now running rampant through this administration. You are right though – the truth will come out hopefully sooner than later. I hope you are prepared. Even his own party is starting to distance themselves from him. If you listened to the 1st day of the impeachment process even a stanch supporter of the Orange Oaf admonished the President directly by stating, Mr. President, It is not Okay, The conversation was not Okay.” Whether you can recognise it or not, the simple statement regarding I have a favor to ask of you though followed by the request to investigate Biden broke the law. The fact that the conversation was hidden on the coded security server that is reserved for the most classified and security related information so that a very few people had access to the “memo” (not really a full transcript), and it could not even be seen by those who would normally see such documents shows that someone knew it was not legal. I think you need to expand your sources of information to include others than fox, Hannity, Limbaugh, Jones and that ilk. The Republicans for the Rule of Law and many previous Republican supporters have now started to speak out for the investigation of the Orange Oaf. As more comes out, just as with Nixon, you will see a mass defection from the Orange Oaf’s camp. Nixon was strongly supported by Rep for about two years before the truth started coming out. Now the truth is starting to come out on the Orange Oaf and the defection is beginning. Even the Orange Oaf does not know how to spin this one. He has been eerily silent and has not been, spinning the story providing a deflection, or providing alternate facts (lies) to deal with all of the issues that are being exposed. It will be interesting to see what the hidden conversations with Putin & that Saudis have in them. We are hearing today he condoned the Russian interference in the 2016 election. For the Ukraine monies, initially, the money Congress slatted to go to them to help them keep from being taken over by Russia like Crimea was illegally pulled by Trump purportably to pay for his wall (I never realized our military was Mexico who knew!). Really, it was to aid Putin in his take over Gambit BUT when Biden’s polling numbers became overwhelmingly higher than his, all of the sudden the monies are back on the table with a request to investigate Biden and better yet, the monies being given to Ukraine were inexplicably increased by a substantial amount. Ukraine is informed to contact not the State Department or the US Ambassador to the country as they should, but is told to contact the personal lawyer to a US individual (who happens to be the POTUS) or the Attorney General who has no business being involved in foriegn relations and was never confirmed by the Senate to do so. AND then the conversation is hidden. Nothing fishy in any of that – it is all perfectly normal and above board. Even Paul Ryan has reportably contacted the owners of Fox and told them to prepare for the end of Trump’s administration. I look forward to the truth being revealed and to have the respect of the World returned to the Oval Office. Not to mention the end of the constant lies, inane tweets, and cyber bullying, along with ending the rise of racism, white supremacy, and plutocracy, all lead and done by an individual in the highest role model position in the USA. Don’t get too stressed as the impeachment process proceeds and more of the disturbing facts regarding the illegal actions taken by the Orange Oaf are revealed.

    • don’tbelieve whatyouaretold no he was working in his capacity as a liaison between state department and the Ukrainians . This excuse won’t hold . The state department routinely enlists informants with certain knowledge or preexisting connections as informants . Secondly there was no illegal nor improper conversation between Rudy and any rep from Ukraine . You just made that up . If you insist on there being such a thing then please provide transcripts of such. Furthermore there was no “improper handling of information “ , that’s just an absurd claim. The steps taken to prevent leaks by trump White House is completely within the laws and best practices. Who told you any of that??

    • @don’tbelieve whatyouaretold in short …Republicans have had their hand in the cookie jar as well . But if you look at way Congress has continuously attacked this administration , No one in this country could conceivably be that evil . When you threaten corruption , the most corrupt come out to play . Simple math . Every policy the Democrats have is working against the very principles of even having a nation . When Trump sat in Congress and snitched off the mafia for trying to muscle the native Americans out of their casinos , was he a “bad man” ? Trump stood against the mafia and that got several executives killed . Go back and actually look at the policies of each President starting with Carter . Trump is the only one to put this country first. Doesn’t matter whether I like the guy or not . What matters is this country stays a country for you to have a life in . Every American that stayed an American didn’t have to choose a side .

    I have missed your reporting Richard. Thank you for always being a fantastic journalist. Welcome back

  6. William Barr needs to resign. Barr is a corrupt DOJ official trying to frame an American citizen.

    • webhead2777 proof of what?

    • @bigpimpdaddy69 the dossier was was started by Russia and paid for by hillary to influence the election…act of treason

    • @Bjarke Stemann put your crack pipe down and pay attention

    • @bigpimpdaddy69 FAKE NEWS. The original Dossier was about Trump and his dealings in Atlantic City. It was funded by the Free Beacon. By the way, what happened to that one?

      The Trump dossier was paid for by the DNC and Clinton. Fusion GPS (Who Mueller said he never heard of) hired Christopher Steele (retired MI6) and through his RUSSIAN contacts, made up the dossier.

      Personally, I think this Ukraine Fake story and the slamming of Barr is just an attempt to get out in front of what Barr and Durham are doing. We shall see.

      This has been going on for 3 years – a basic Google search would have disclosed what I just wrote. Are you really that stupid?

  7. Hey, Rudy Goonliani, now dats a rat🧀🐀🐁

  8. Oh, How far Americas Mayor has fallen. Much less America. In the voice of Tre45on , ‘So Sad’.

  9. “Crazy Eyes” Rudy, take a break before you wind up in jail.

    Interesting news!! Most of the time whatever is done in the dark will come to the light 💡

  11. Ex Ukraine prosecutor that has *no* legal training–what is wrong with that Ghouliani?

  12. Trumpists still don’t understand why any of this is serious, lol! This whole scandal is fun to watch.

    • This is deadly serious, but not in the way you think. This is a concerted effort by the intelligence community to unseat a legitimately elected President, with the help of an all too willing Dem party. You may think that on the surface this appears to be a great idea, because ‘Orange Man Bad’, but do tell me, what happens with the next President they don’t like but you do? Will you all be so enthusiastic then?

    • @John Bull Anyone doing illegal things shouldn’t be in government. Is that really too much to ask of our representatives and leaders? Other than that, this “they” you’re talking about sounds like a conspiracy that was invented at the same time that Trump began his campaign. There are more important things than nationalism and blindly following the latest Mr. “only I can fix it” off the edge of a cliff like a good believer. You’ve bet far too much on this one horse, not even realizing the tsunami about to drown even those in the highest bleachers.

  13. He wasn’t working for the state department. He was working for trump.

    • @Pamela Wiles Did you lose your baba?

    • @francis long Rudy can’t finish a sentence with out lying. Pompeo just got his subpoena, and you can bet he’s not going down for Giuliani.

    • @Richard Curren , Rudy is kinda F uped, He could of misconstrued contact with the State Department while in the Ukraine as working for/with them. Regardless, He is a hunch man for DT.

  14. It’s remarkable how consistent President Trump is at hitting new lows.
    His character is about as far away from being an American as you can get.
    And yet this freak represents America…. not for much longer though.

  15. Rudy’s source: You give us military aid, i will say extraterrestrials dance in our parks and King Kong sleeps in our wheat fields.

  16. Rudy and barr looks like they going to visit michael cohen house soon.
    All trumps lawyer end in michael cohen house in other words jail.

    If 45 and “America’s Mayor” doesn’t go down, law doesnt exist.

    • Diane Arthur Yes , it was a rigged investigation in which the charges against burisma were dropped . Burisma hired a US lobbying firm to talk with the new prosecutor since shokin wasn’t cooperating and it seems the new interim prosecutor cooperated , you wouldn’t hear that on the news. What timeline are you talking about ? I hope it’s not what you’re getting from the MSM because the MSM is clearly behind on this case .If it’s a nothing burger and a lie then I imagine you have no problem with an investigation in which all the facts come out. All I’m asking for is that democrats don’t go along with an impeachment and that Biden is investigated in a transparent manner.

    • @tj ti I wany any and all political corruption brought out in public, dem and repub. A crook is a crook, diesnt matter what the letter is beside their name. If Buden is dirty he needs brought down too… but I am ready for Trump to go..

    • Diane Arthur then vote him out. You cant impeach him simply because you hate him . That is what democrats are doing and it’s disgusting. Impeaching him over politics is trying to delete my vote on the ballot over politics. Both sides should stand against that .

    • I often think of two things: 1) RBG said that she has never seen a case of a rich person’s appeals with the best lawyers get as far as the Scotus. 2) Also about the death penalty; It is the poor who pay the price.

    • @Diane Arthur – *Exactly.*
      America has *NEVER* had a ‘President’ *so openly unfaithful* to the *oath he took before God* to defend our country.
      #45 – *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

  18. Trump is a disease. He infects everything and everyone he comes into contact with.

  19. They need to move Rudy Giuliani’s coffin into a prison cell.

    “This and other even political issues.” That’s scarier and more damning and dangerous than the number of times they spoke. WTH else did Rudy share illegally?
