Hillary Clinton, Democrats ‘infuriating’ in their efforts to ‘cast doubt on legitimacy of President Trump,’ Lisa Boothe says

It is Democrats, not President Trump, who are threatening American institutions and the electoral process, according to Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.

Boothe rejected new remarks about the current president from Hillary Clinton, in an interview Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Speaking with CBS News, Clinton referred to Trump as a “corrupt human tornado” and said the New York Republican inherently knows he is an “illegitimate” president.

“He knows that there were a bunch of different reasons that the election turned out the way it did,” Clinton said.

Boothe ripped Clinton’s remarks both there and in a 2016 tweet, in which the former secretary of state wrote, “Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that he’s threatening our democracy.”

“What I find infuriating about what she said there — Democrats are the ones who are threatening our democracy by casting doubt on the legitimacy of President Trump,” she said.

“They are the ones who are undermining our faith in institutions, particularly the electoral process.”

Host Tucker Carlson agreed, remarking that Clinton appears to be “trapped in emotional amber” from Election Day 2016.

“Every day is November 8,” he said.

In addition, Boothe said Democrats are eroding democratic norms through lawmakers who boycotted Trump’s 2017 inauguration and, “lied about the Russian collusion narrative.”

Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016, added that she supports the House of Representatives’ newly launched impeachment inquiry.

“My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton told CBS News. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.”

She was referring to the dust-up over a July call between Trump and his counterpart in Ukraine, in which he asked for an inquiry into onetime Vice President Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, and their dealings there.

U.S. House Impeachment Probe Intensifies As Trump Rages About Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group 5d912112220000c602dfb911 U.S. House Impeachment Probe Intensifies As Trump Rages About Inquiry

WASHINGTON, Sept 30 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives’ impeachment probe into President Donald Trump intensified on Monday, as Trump raged about the inquiry and news reports suggested he had used additional diplomatic channels togo after his adversaries.

Three House committees said a subpoena for documents had been sent to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani. The former New York mayor had said on television he asked the government of Ukraine to “target” former Vice President Joe Biden, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to run against Trump in the 2020 election.

Giuliani said in a tweet the subpoena raised legal issues including attorney-client privilege. “It will be given appropriate consideration,” he added.

The Democratic-led House initiated an impeachment inquiry against Trump last week after a whistleblower report raised concerns that Trump tried to leverage nearly $400 million in U.S. aid in exchange for investigating Biden from Ukraine’s leader in July.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took part in the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in which the matter was discussed, the Wall Street Journal reported, something likely to draw the attention of House investigators.

The New York Times reported that Trump had sought the help of another world leader, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia, with a U.S. Justice Department probe into the origins of what became Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In a recent telephone call, Trump asked Morrison to assistAttorney General William Barr with the probe, which Trump hopes will discredit Mueller’s now-closed investigation, the Times reported.

“The Democrats clearly don’t want the truth to come out anymore as it might hurt them politically, but this call relates to a DOJ inquiry publicly announced months ago to uncover exactly what happened,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in response to the Times story.

An Australian government spokesperson said in an email: “The Australian Government has always been ready to assist and cooperate with efforts that help shed further light on the matters under investigation. The PM confirmed this read inessonce again in conversation with the President.”

Barr has held private meetings overseas with foreign intelligence officials in Britain and Italy to seek their assistance as well with that investigation, the Washington Post reported.

In the Giuliani document request, the chairmen of threeHouse committees said he had “stated more recently that you are in possession of evidence – in the form of text messages, phone records, and other communications – indicating that you were not acting alone and that other Trump Administration officials may have been involved in this scheme.”

He was given until Oct. 15 to respond.

SUPPORT FOR IMPEACHMENT RISES -POLL

A Sept. 26-30 Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll found that 45% ofAmerican adults believed Trump “should be impeached,” compared with 37% in a similar poll that ran last week. Forty-one percent said Trump should not be impeached and 15% said they “don’t know.”

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Monday to put to rest speculation he would use his position to derail any impeachment effort by the Democratic-led House by avoiding a trial at all. The Republicans control the Senate and have been largely muted about the allegations and inquiries into fellow-Republican Trump.

If the House approves bringing charges, known as “articles of impeachment,” against a president, the process moves to theSenate, where there would be a trial.

“I would have no choice but to take it up,” McConnell toldCNBC. “Under the Senate rules, we are required to take it up if the House does go down that path. “The Senate impeachment rules are very clear.”

Trump spent much of the day directing his ire at theDemocrat leading the House inquiry, suggesting on Twitter thatU.S. Representative Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, should be arrested for “treason.”

Later, speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump accused Schiff of distorting his conversation with Zelenskiy at a House hearing last week.

“Adam Schiff made up a phony call and he read it to Congress and he read it to the people of the United States and it’s a disgrace,” Trump said.

In those comments, Schiff said the call to Zelenskiy “reads like a classic organized crime shakedown” and parodied the president’s remarks.

A spokesman for Schiff did not respond to a request for comment on Trump’s remarks.

TRUMP SEEKS WHISTLEBLOWER’S IDENTITY

A U.S. intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint citing the July 25 telephone call in which Trump asked Zelenskiyto investigate Biden and his son Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

The whistleblower has not been publicly identified, butTrump said on Monday that “we’re trying to find out about a whistleblower. We have a whistleblower who reports things that were incorrect.”

Trump has also accused the whistleblower and White House officials who gave the whistleblower information of being spies and suggested they may be guilty of treason.

“The Intel Community Whistleblower is entitled to anonymity,” Andrew Bakaj, an attorney for the whistleblower, said on Twitter shortly after the president’s remarks. “Law and policy support this and the individual is not to be retaliated against. Doing so is a violation of federal law.”

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday called on the committee’s Republican chairman, Lindsey Graham, a close ally of Trump, to convene hearings to investigate the administration’s handling of the whistleblower’s complaint, and said the panel should act to “protect witnesses from intimidation.”

“This Committee should not sit idly by as the President threatens potential witnesses, whose testimony may be crucial to congressional investigations into credible allegations against him,” the Democrats wrote in a letter to Graham.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she wants to move”expeditiously” on the impeachment inquiry, perhaps paving the way for an impeachment vote on the House floor early next year.

While McConnell said on Monday that he would be forced to hold a trial, he did not commit to letting it run its full course.

“How long you’re on it is a whole different matter,“ McConnell told CNBC.

According to a Senate Republican leadership aide, any senator could attempt to have the articles dismissed in the early stages of the trial, which would trigger a vote with a majority of the Senate needing to be in favor for it to succeed.

Democrats accuse Trump of pressuring a vulnerable U.S. ally to get dirt on a rival for personal political gain. The phone call with Zelenskiy came after Trump froze nearly $400 million in aid intended to help Ukraine deal with an insurgency by Russian-backed separatists in the eastern part of the country.The aid was later provided.

Schiff said on Sunday he expected the whistleblower to appear before the panel very soon.

MOVING AHEAD

The U.S. Congress is on a two-week recess but members of the Intelligence Committee will return to Washington this week to carry out an investigation likely to produce new subpoenas for documents and other material.

The committee is scheduled to hold a closed-door hearing on Friday with the intelligence community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, who has concluded that the whistleblower complaint was of urgent concern and appeared credible.

House investigators are set to take the first witness testimony from two people mentioned in the whistleblower’s complaint.

On Wednesday, three House committees – Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight – are due to get a deposition from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, whom Trump labeled ”bad news” during his call with Zelenskiy.

On Thursday, the committees are set to get a deposition fromKurt Volker, who resigned last week as Trump’s special representative for Ukraine after the whistleblower complaint named him as one of two U.S. diplomats who followed up with Ukrainian officials a day after Trump’s call to Zelenskiy.

San Francisco removes boulders meant to deter homeless campers because they were ‘not big enough’

Westlake Legal Group boulders-clinton-park San Francisco removes boulders meant to deter homeless campers because they were 'not big enough' fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/san-francisco fox-news/topic/homeless-crisis fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 1e406886-bdb0-5de3-bf0a-83692abc6ac0

The city of San Francisco on Monday removed about two dozen small boulders from a residential side street after a group of neighbors had them installed last week in an effort to deter homeless people from camping out on along the sidewalk amid the city’s ongoing crisis.

SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS CRISIS PROMPTS NEIGHBORHOOD TO PUT BOULDERS ON SIDEWALK TO DETER CAMPERS

San Francisco’s Public Works removed the rocks set up along Clinton Park in the city’s Mission Dolores neighborhood. Residents last week said they pooled their funds to keep drug users from having a space to shoot up as they camp out overnight.

The department’s director, Mohammed Nuru, told the San Francisco Examiner that the boulders installed by the residents “were not big enough” and began posing a safety concern as they were being pushed into the street. He said the city would work with residents to come up with a more permanent solution that “could involve larger boulders or a landscape plan.”

“They would have saved a lot of money and a lot of trouble if they just said something to us,” Daniel Bartosiewicz, a homeless man who said he’s camped in Clinton Park for the past two months, told the Bay Area’s KNTV. “Use your compassion and love and understanding. We’re humans.”

The San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness reacted to the city’s decision to remove the Clinton Park boulders, writing: “They should remove all the anti-homeless design and hostile architecture from the rest of the city while they’re at it — most of which are *City-sanctioned.*”

The city and state has implemented similar landscaping choices in an effort to deter homeless encampments in other neighborhoods. The California Department of Transportation has put rocks in an open space off Bayshore Boulevard to deter encampments, while the Eureka Valley-Harvey Milk Branch of the San Francisco Public Library – in the same neighborhood – has made design choices that are perceived as anti-homeless, according to KTVU.

San Francisco has long struggled with problems of human waste and needles on the streets of the Tenderloin district, where many addicts and homeless people are typically found. The city has set up public toilets and last year announced the creation of a special six-person “poop patrol” team to clean up the human waste.

Pompeo Scolds Russians On Election Meddling After Participating In Trump’s Ukraine Call

Westlake Legal Group 5d92b0002100002e00f8c3d4 Pompeo Scolds Russians On Election Meddling After Participating In Trump’s Ukraine Call

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a stiff warning after sanctions were announced Monday against Russians who attempted to interfere in the U.S.  midterm elections last year. The action came amid reports that Pompeo listened in on President Donald Trump’s July phone call pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.

“We have been clear: We will not tolerate foreign interference in our elections,” Pompeo said in a statement. “The United States will continue to push back against malign actors who seek to subvert our democratic processes.”

The target of economic sanctions by the Treasury Department was an online troll factory called the Internet Research Agency. Named were six employees and company financier Yevgeny Prigozhin. The sanctions target Prigozhin’s yacht, three private jets and front companies. 

Though Pompeo warned the Russians, he listened in on Trump’s July 25 call to the Ukrainian president pushing him repeatedly to launch an investigation into Biden and his son, according to several media reports. Trump was withholding nearly $400 million in U.S. military aid while he pressed a cause that could affect the 2020 election. The call has become the focus of a formal House impeachment inquiry.

Just a week ago, Pompeo also said he supported efforts by Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to press an investigation by Ukrainian officials into former Vice President Biden.

Giuliani and Trump have been pushing a baseless conspiracy theory that Democratic National Committee emails were hacked during the 2016 campaign by Ukrainians — not Russians, as U.S. intelligence officials have determined. The cyberattack was somehow part of a plot — also linked to Biden — that attempted to sway the election for the Democrats, Giuliani has claimed.

Tom Bossert, a former homeland security adviser to Trump, said Sunday on ABC that the Ukraine theory is “completely false.” He added: “It’s not only a conspiracy theory, it is completely debunked.”

Pompeo, however, appeared to give credence to the conspiracy when he backed Giuliani’s activities in Ukraine pressing officials for information — even though the attorney has no role in the federal government.

“If there was election interference that took place by the vice president, I think the American people deserve to know,” Pompeo said on “Face the Nation.”

Trump referenced the cyberattack theory in his phone call to Ukraine’s president.

Graham calls out NY Times report saying Trump ‘pressed’ Aussie PM

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6090814769001_6090815466001-vs Graham calls out NY Times report saying Trump 'pressed' Aussie PM Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc fef1d832-9a84-5853-be88-73d1b80745b8 article

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized a report by the New York Times that claimed President Trump “pressed” the prime minister of Australia for information to discredit the probe conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, calling it an “effort” to shut down Attorney General William Barr‘s investigation.

“This New York Times article about Barr talking to Australia is the beginning of an effort to shut down Barr’s investigation to find out how this whole thing started,” Graham said on “Hannity” Monday.

TRUMP DEMANDS SCHIFF RESIGN OVER ‘PARODY’ READING OF UKRAINE CALL

A Justice Department official told Fox News on Monday that Barr asked Trump to make introductions to foreign countries that might have had information pertinent to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into possible misconduct by the intelligence community at the outset of the Russia investigation.

But, a person familiar with the situation told Fox News it would be wrong to say Trump “pressed” the Australian prime minister for information that could have discredited Mueller’s now-completed probe, as the New York Times reported earlier Monday.

Graham said that Barr should be talking with Australia as well as the U.K. and Italy in order to do his job properly.  He also said he would write a letter to those three countries asking them to cooperate with Barr and cited a letter his colleagues sent to Ukraine last year asking them to cooperate with Mueller or the U.S. would stop sending aid.

“So here’s what I want American people to know: it’s OK to cooperate with Mueller to get Trump but it’s not OK to cooperate with Barr to find out if Trump was the victim of an out-of-control intelligence operation,” Graham said. “We’re not going to have a country like that.”

The senator told host Sean Hannity it “bothered him” that “the left” would say it was wrong for Barr to talk with other countries.

“This New York Times article is an effort to stop Barr from looking at how this whole thing began in 2016 regarding the Trump campaign,” Graham said. “What are they afraid of.”

Rudy Giuliani Laughs At Subpoena On Fox News: ‘They Seem To Forget That I’m A Lawyer’

Westlake Legal Group 5d92ae762200005100db9a81 Rudy Giuliani Laughs At Subpoena On Fox News: ‘They Seem To Forget That I’m A Lawyer’

Just hours after being issued a subpoena from top congressional Democrats, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox News to defend his involvement with Ukraine, actions that have become central to an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump

Trump’s personal attorney appeared on Sean Hannity’s program as part of his latest effort to distance himself from the political whirlwind surrounding Trump’s July 25 call with the Ukrainian president.

During the “Hannity” segment, Giuliani appeared to question the motives behind the subpoenas while defending his communications with officials in Ukraine about investigating former Vice President Joe Biden, a top Trump rival in the 2020 presidential campaign. He also reminded viewers that he was a professional lawyer as he pushed unfounded conspiracy theories targeting a spate of his boss’s political rivals.

“These people are such intellectual heavyweights, I don’t know if I could handle Schiff,” Giuliani said Monday, appearing to joke about Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee who recently sent him a subpoena.

Giuliani went on to push unfounded claims about the Biden family, Trump’s 2016 political rival Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.

“Wake up, Democrats. You are covering up corruption, and by the time this is over, you’re going to be the party of corruption,” Giuliani said. Earlier in the show, he noted that lawmakers “seem to forget that I’m a lawyer. If I were defending a terrorist, they’d be going crazy that I was called before a committee.”

The chairs of multiple House committees subpoenaed Giuliani and three of his associates Monday as part of the inquiry, demanding he produce communications and other documents related to his work for the president. The subpoena pertains to material from Jan. 20, 2017, the day before Trump’s inauguration, to the present.

“Our inquiry includes an investigation of credible allegations that you acted as an agent of the president in a scheme to advance his personal political interests by abusing the power of the office of the president,” said the letter, signed by Schiff and two other Democratic congressmen: Eliot Engel (N.Y.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Elijah Cummings (Md.), chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Giuliani must comply with the subpoena by Oct. 15, although the former New York City mayor has already pushed back on its merits, claiming on Twitter that it raised “significant issues concerning legitimacy.”

House Democrats are investigating Giuliani’s role in the unfolding scandal over Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as part of their impeachment inquiry.

During the July conversation, Trump repeatedly pressured Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company for five years. A reconstruction of the call released last week showed Trump asking Zelensky for a “favor” shorty after Zelensky brought up millions in military aid the U.S. had appropriated for Ukraine.

Neither Biden has been accused of any wrongdoing, despite Giuliani’s claims.

Giuliani appears to be one of the central figures related to that favor, which Democrats have called an unprecedented quid pro quo for political dirt. The attorney is mentioned multiple times in a formal whistleblower complaint about the call, and he has admitted in television interviews that he met with Ukrainian operatives. But Giuliani has recently said he did so at the behest of the State Department. Trump has also denied any impropriety and moved to discredit the unnamed whistleblower.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also been issued a subpoena by House Democrats.

Giuliani’s whirlwind media appearances have prompted frustration from Democrats in recent days, including from the Biden campaign. The former vice president’s staff recently asked news executives to stop booking Giuliani on their shows, saying he was using the appearance to spread “false, debunked conspiracy theories.”

“Giuliani is not enlightening your viewers in any way. He’s not offering a unique or informed perspective,” the Biden camp wrote in the letter last week. “He’s certainly not introducing new facts, since his relationship with the truth is casual at best.”

House Democrats have, however, pointed to the lawyer’s own statements on CNN to back up their request for the subpoena.

“You stated more recently that you are in possession of evidence ― in the form of text messages, phone records, and other communications ― indicating that you were not acting alone and that other Trump Administration officials may have been involved in this scheme,” they wrote.

Rudy Giuliani blasts Biden camp for trying to ‘silence’ him, claims Democrats are ‘party of corruption’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Biden camp for what he characterized as trying to “silence” him by encouraging media outlets not to book him on-air.

Giuliani also claimed Monday on “Hannity” the Democrats are going to turn into the “party of corruption.”

“It is outrageous,” he said, explaining allegations of unsubstantiated wrongdoing involving Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden. “The only really sad part of this is how much in-the-tank and how corrupt the media have become.”

“He is a laughing stock,” Giuliani said of Biden.

He claimed Biden was dispatched to Ukraine while in the Obama administration with the goal of rooting out corruption, but instead watched as Hunter Biden did work on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.

Giuliani also said that, while accusations against Hunter Biden go without much attention in the media, a lot of attention has been paid to the contents of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that was exposed by a whistleblower.

“They make up charges against President Trump that are not true,” he said.

HILLARY CLINTON CALLS TRUMP ‘ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT’ AND ‘CORRUPT HUMAN TORNADO’

Regarding the Biden campaign expressing to major media outlets their concern over having Giuliani on air, the former mayor said the reasoning is obvious.

More from Media

“Why do you think they’re silencing me?” he asked.

“Because I’m not making any valid points? They’re silencing me because I showed up with an affidavit yesterday — an accuser who’s willing to stand up and point the finger at Joe Biden and say ‘you’re a crook’.”

The Biden campaign wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News, and CNN to voice “grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” according to The Daily Beast, which first reported the existence of the letter.

GIULIANI WASN’T WORKING ALONE IN BIDEN UKRAINE PROBE

The memo, drafted by Biden aides Kate Bedingfield and Anita Dunn, continued: “While you often fact check his statements in real-time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”

Should a network choose to book Giuliani, the Biden campaign called for “an equivalent amount of time” to be provided “to a surrogate for the Biden campaign.” The letter noted Giuliani was not a public official, but Trump’s lawyer and personal advisor.

Speaking separately to Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Giuliani brought up the affidavits and called the situation Clintonesque.

“The pattern is a pattern of pay for play. It includes something very similar to what happened to the Clinton Foundation,” Giuliani said, “which goes to the very core of, what did Obama know and when did he know it?”

Giuliani referred to a December 2015 New York Times article about Hunter Biden, Burisma and a Ukrainian oligarch, and how the younger Biden’s involvement with the Ukrainian company could undermine then-Vice President Biden’s anti-corruption message.

“The question is,” Giuliani asked, “when Biden and Obama saw that article, about how the son was pulling down money from the most crooked oligarch in Russia, did Obama call Biden in and say ‘Joe, how could you be doing this?'”

Rudy Giuliani blasts Biden camp for trying to ‘silence’ him, claims Democrats are ‘party of corruption’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Biden camp for what he characterized as trying to “silence” him by encouraging media outlets not to book him on-air.

Giuliani also claimed Monday on “Hannity” the Democrats are going to turn into the “party of corruption.”

“It is outrageous,” he said, explaining allegations of unsubstantiated wrongdoing involving Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden. “The only really sad part of this is how much in-the-tank and how corrupt the media have become.”

“He is a laughing stock,” Giuliani said of Biden.

He claimed Biden was dispatched to Ukraine while in the Obama administration with the goal of rooting out corruption, but instead watched as Hunter Biden did work on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.

Giuliani also said that, while accusations against Hunter Biden go without much attention in the media, a lot of attention has been paid to the contents of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that was exposed by a whistleblower.

“They make up charges against President Trump that are not true,” he said.

Regarding the Biden campaign expressing to major media outlets their concern over having Giuliani on air, the former mayor said the reasoning is obvious.

“Why do you think they’re silencing me?” he asked.

“Because I’m not making any valid points? They’re silencing me because I showed up with an affidavit yesterday — an accuser who’s willing to stand up and point the finger at Joe Biden and say ‘you’re a crook’.”

The Biden campaign wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News, and CNN to voice “grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” according to The Daily Beast, which first reported the existence of the letter.

GIULIANI WASN’T WORKING ALONE IN BIDEN UKRAINE PROBE

The memo, drafted by Biden aides Kate Bedingfield and Anita Dunn, continued: “While you often fact check his statements in real-time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”

Should a network choose to book Giuliani, the Biden campaign called for “an equivalent amount of time” to be provided “to a surrogate for the Biden campaign.” The letter noted Giuliani was not a public official, but Trump’s lawyer and personal advisor.

Speaking separately to Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Giuliani brought up the affidavits and called the situation Clintonesque.

“The pattern is a pattern of pay for play. It includes something very similar to what happened to the Clinton Foundation,” Giuliani said, “which goes to the very core of, what did Obama know and when did he know it?”

Giuliani referred to a December 2015 New York Times article about Hunter Biden, Burisma and a Ukrainian oligarch, and how the younger Biden’s involvement with the Ukrainian company could undermine then-Vice President Biden’s anti-corruption message.

“The question is,” Giuliani asked, “when Biden and Obama saw that article, about how the son was pulling down money from the most crooked oligarch in Russia, did Obama call Biden in and say ‘Joe, how could you be doing this?'”

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney: Ukraine phone call is ‘starting to seem like a political set up’ against Donald Trump

WASHINGTON – Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming singled out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Twitter and suggested that the phone call between President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart “is starting to seem like a political set up.”  

In her tweet, Cheney asked “what did you know and when did you know it?” of Pelosi while referencing the Democratic Speaker’s “60 Minutes” interview in which she described talking to Trump about the call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky before it was released to the public.

Cheney continued, “This is starting to seem like a political set up.”

Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry against Trump after Democrats expressed alarm over an August complaint accusing Trump of having “used the power of his office” to solicit foreign interference to discredit Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

The complaint also alleges that White House officials sought to “lock down” records of a July 25 phone call between Trump and Zelensky in which the president urged Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter, who once had business interests in Ukraine.

Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani had been pushing Ukraine to investigate Burisma Group, a Ukrainian energy company where the vice president’s son served on the board of directors.

“It is wrong for a president to say that he wants you – another head of state – to create something negative about his possible political opponent to his own advantage, at the expense of our national security, his oath of office to the Constitution and the integrity of our elections,” Pelosi said on “60 Minutes.”

Last week, Trump and the Department of Justice released a summary of the phone call.

In a separate tweet, Cheney accused Democrats of “careening from one impeachment to another,” adding that they “can’t even wait 24 hours to see the transcript. Lesson: Evidence doesn’t matter to them.”

On “60 Minutes,” Pelosi elaborated on her decision to move forward with an official impeachment inquiry: “We could not ignore what the president did. He gave us no choice. So, it wasn’t any change of mind. I always said we will follow the facts where they take us. And when we see them, we will be ready. And we are ready.”
