During an interview with The New Yorker’s Adam Entous, Rudy Giuliani said “I believed that I needed Yovanovitch out of the way,” referring to former U.S. Amb. to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Giuliani told Entous that he believed Yovanovitch would “make the investigations difficult.” When asked by reporters about Giuliani’s work in Ukraine, President Donald Trump said his attorney was a “great crimefighter … he does it out of love.” Aired on 12/17/19.

Giuliani ‘Needed Yovanovitch Out Of The Way’ On Quest For Dirt In Ukraine – Day That Was | MSNBC
Hopefully the institutions are strong enough, and justice will be served
@GSh%t weird. Do you hear the way you sound. Dense. I don’t care about your identity politics. I want to half the defense spending. Halt all foreign aid. Including Nato. Why are we paying 70 percent of Nato costs while Europeans have free college and healthcare.
@Errol 0007 Oh, so you support our president? Thanks! 🙂
@g bridgman I didn’t say that either. I’m just asking questions which I believe is still legal. When you start saying someone hates something just because they have a different opinion you really need too check yourself.
The greatest crime fighter… Says the guy who skimmed millions off his own charity!
@Grant Taylor 3 million MORE! How hard is it to get something in your “brain”?
@SuperBullaManRudy is “Batty Ol’ Man” the crazy crime wave.
@Ken Rimmer that is not for part time lol. Idk what you’re looking at but nothing can be more factual than the Dept of Labor…and as far as Guiliani goes. “Suspected”? That’s a sham way of saying we don’t want to hear what they have to say regarding the money laundering accusations of a democratic candidate. You can suspect anybody of anything. Of course it was never proven
*HEADZ-UP FROM CNN: THERE’S A NATIONWIDE MARCH CALLIN’ ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP TOMORROW & ERIN BURNETT IS SHOWING HOW WE DO HERE IN NEW YORK CITY!! COMING SOON TO YOUTUBE, MAYBE!! SHE HAS ON A BLACK 👕 SHIRT & A BLACK JACKET JUST IN CASE THEY ONLY GIVE YOUZ ONLY 3-10 MINUTES OF A YOUTUBE 📹 VIDEO FROM A 1 HOUR SHOW=7PM-8PM IN N.Y.C!!🗽🌉🌉🗽💯💪✊😎✌😂😂😂*
I love how rudy just talks…. keep on… we are listening, I hope SDNY, pelosi are taking notes.
You know that they are! 😂
You know they are. It’s just piling up on him.
The Senate doesn’t need to call witnesses, just play Rudy’s interviews. Case closed, trump impeached and removed. Please take Moscow Mitch and Leningrad Lindsey with you.
Wild turkey and a cuban for me…
Giuliani is calculated and using the MSM. They need the Dems to push impeachment to senate trial. This is designed to lure them in to the trap. There literally is no law broken here.
Ambassador to Ukraine was denying VISAs to witnesses exonerating Trump and she lied under oath at hearing last week. Ukrainian Charging documents against Hunter Biden for Money Laundering is documentation/evidence .. not dirt … dirt would be something like a dossier that turned out to be false.
Yet people want to believe Giuliani is dumb enough to say something incriminating proactively! An accomplished prosecutor that took out the NY mob. It takes extreme stupidity to dismiss reality and believe he’s so uncalculated. Unreal how logic is thrown out the window when bias is present
Lovely E. I guess guiliani hasn’t learned from Cohen mistakes.
It is impossible for him to learn.
Cohen a dirty Democrat .. said he “changed to GOP in 2010 after being a lifetime Dem”. Lanny Davis the Clinton Goon represented Cohen at trial. Cohen never changed. Dems embrace criminals anyway.. look at Hillary. Guiliani took down the 5 Top NYC Mob Families .. Biden Mob is next. Rudy showed money laundering docs on Hunter Biden yesterday … MSNBC didn’t expose that I’m sure, too partisan.
Lovely E. Why is trump and guiliani allowed to get a way with these crimes
Someone needs to ask trump why he gave the Ukraine aid during his first two years whilst they had the corrupt president, then withheld it once they got the new president in, who ran his campaign on anti corruption.
And why did he only release the funds (after three months) the day after the whistleblower complaint?
@Adam P don’t ask logical sensible questions, that too much common sense. Plus they’re in denial and liars so good luck with an honest intelligent response to your question.
This presidency and its support system is about _outrunning and drowning_ truth – not portraying nor living truth.
GREAT POINT! You are absolutely right on the money there!
So y’all still think Rudy is highly lntelligent, Well your Delusional President thinks so ! 🤯
Rudy Colludie is helping the prosecution of Trump’s impeachment. Could Rudy be paying Trump back for not being in Trump’s Cabinet of liars?
We all already knew that but I am glad that he admitted it; I hope that the next President re-hires her.
If Yovanovitch is so corrupt as Rudy Colludie claims, why is she still working for the US State Department?
why hasnt this rotten pos been arrested
If the Democrats could force Giuliani to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial, Trump would be finished.
But Moscow Mitch would never allow Giuliani to testify.
Lindsey already said he wants Rudy there.
Rudy will be testifying.. but not like you think. He showed Money Laundering docs on Hunter Biden yesterday on TV. Maybe try non echo chamber news. Rudy will be taking down the Bidens in the Senate.
@Closeoutracer If Rudy will be testifying, he’ll be subject to cross-examination by the Democrats. He won’t get to cherry-pick what he wants to testify about. This could be a double win for the Democrats. If Rudy can take down the Bidens and knock Joe out of the race, he’ll be doing the Democrats a huge favor. We want Biden gone. And when Rudy is cross-examined by the Democrats, he’ll take down Trump as well. A double win. Surely you’re not under the impression that we want Biden as the Democratic nominee. That would be stupid, don’t you agree?
as usual, nothing that comes out of the orange in chief has any base in reality.
The world needs guiliani out of the way for peace to happen.
The world needs a bit more than that for peace
Another public confession from Rudy on Trump’s extortion of Ukraine.
How on earth is Rudy not arrested yet?
Perhaps they are biding their time, giving him more rope to hang himself!
Ann Anderson hopefully
@Ann Anderson As a cop, i would want him free so he can incriminate his self more.
Don’t know either
That guy needs to be in jail life sentence .
Why don’t the people targeted by Giuliani sue him? He’s not a government employee should be liable for the unsubstantiated slander of those individuals.
– If you ask me, this guy should be arrested right now, why are they letting him do this to the country and running around free. These people are putting the security of this country in jeopardy. The president and the rest of America are just so relaxed about this. The rest of the world is now laughing at America, they see how easy it is to divide the people in this country.
She had her own lawyers with her at the House inquiries she attended so she probably does have civil suits happening in the background.
It has to be more Gov’t officials backing this Admin, What there doing is so obvious it’s ridicule’s.
“He does it out of love”… and, of course, he has ‘insurance’.
When mafia gets to lead a country
Trump isn’t going to even know who Rudy is very soon.
Trump: Rudy, Rudy, I heard that name before but I don’t think I know him!!!!! Rudy: WTF!!!!
hopefully if he looks over the horizon Rudy will be in prison with all of the other trump loyalist already in there from the white house already serving time in the ” big house” instead of the White House .. its scary to us what they really plan for the future and this includes our children
@law allker You’re both delusional.
