‘Shut up, moron. Shut up. Shut up’: Trump lawyer Giuliani abuses fellow TV guest live on air as impeachment rocks White House

Even more bizarre, interfering with corruption investigations in Romania as well. August 29, WAPO:

A letter that Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of President Trump’s personal attorneys, sent to Romanian officials opposing a corruption crackdown in that country has drawn the attention of the State Department and renewed questions about his continued work for foreign clients while representing the president.

...letter last week to Romanian President Klaus Iohannis and Premier Viorica Dancila, Giuliani criticized anti-corruption efforts in that country, expressing concern about “continued damage to the rule of law in Romania, committed under the pretext of law enforcement.”

Writing under the letterhead of his consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, the former New York mayor criticized the “excesses” of Romania’s anti-corruption agency and warned that recent moves could affect foreign investment.

Giuliani’s letter caused significant ripples in Romania and raised questions about his decision to work for foreign clients while serving as one of Trump’s chief attorneys dealing with the Russia investigation.

It also put him in opposition with the State Department, which has supported efforts to prosecute corruption in Romania. The United States joined with 11 other countries in June in a statement warning Romania not to take measures that would weaken its “ability to fight crime or corruption.”

Giuliani received a call from State Department officials this week about his letter, he said in an interview Wednesday…

In response to a request for comment, the State Department reiterated its June statement, which said that “Romania until recently has shown considerable progress in combating corruption and building effective rule of law. We encourage Romanians to continue on this path.”

“Rudy Giuliani does not speak for the U.S. government on foreign policy,” an official added.

Giuliani said he was hired to send the letter by a global consulting firm run by former FBI director Louis Freeh. He declined to say on whose behalf Freeh’s firm was working or how much he was paid.

While working as potus’ personal attorney, Giuliani is traveling the globe and lobbying, on behalf of foreign interests, to thwart US foreign policy. He’s trump’s back channel SOS, who’s not constrained by laws or rules or “taking care” of US foreign policy. And the president is backing his deals with financial, diplomatic, military…

Who’s paying for these activities?

Is all Giuliani’s FARA paperwork properly filed?

I have a feeling this is SOP for trump/giuliani. If so, the Biden story is merely a quaint anecdote.

(Bet Kushner’s running this same type of operation in the middle east.)

Don’t Buy the ‘Transcript’ Trump Plans to Release. It Could Be the Barr Letter 2.0.

Westlake Legal Group vU_U45-8koecFA1xNNFDRIyNyvU3_ipg9AjNBkYWFGo Don't Buy the 'Transcript' Trump Plans to Release. It Could Be the Barr Letter 2.0. r/politics

Whether or not anyone thinks that his actions were explicitly illegal or not with regard to the actual dealings with Ukraine, they broke the law when they engaged in a cover up to withhold the complaint from Congress.

I hope more people focus on this aspect, because I’m not convinced that the contents of the call are going to be as explicit as is being portrayed.

Regardless of what he said, the cover up was a crime.

He is not fit for office. He needs to be removed.

Sources: Pelosi says Trump called her today trying to ‘work something out’ about whistleblower complaint

Westlake Legal Group y-s0RYXE0cdhDG7rD67RScVYCiqeYAeB4xts2sUAadU Sources: Pelosi says Trump called her today trying to 'work something out' about whistleblower complaint r/politics

Yes, that was embarrassment #208 out of #1627 for this administration, so it’s mostly been forgotten. But that leaked phone call was a really interesting window into just how bad a negotiator Trump actually is, and just how much of a joke he must be to other world leaders. I can almost picture President Peña Nieto just rolling his eyes to his aides as Trump basically begged him to pay for his wall. I’m sure most leaders just know how to play him: suck up to him in person, then laugh your ass off at him in private.

I can’t wait for the decade following Trump leaving office when he isn’t the de-facto leader of an American cult. We’ll just keep hearing stories of his unbelievable incompetence or laughable ignorance from other world leaders or his aides who won’t be concerned with keeping up appearances to stay in his good graces.

Westlake Legal Group AtME6at7Vl-XCZI_ht7478Eq9fzTIaPdEg8NWgPBEFo Megathread: Rep. Adam Schiff Says Ukraine Whistleblower Wants To Talk To Intelligence Committee r/politics

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, announced on Tuesday that an intelligence community whistleblower who allegedly has information about President Donald Trump’s misconduct in office would like to speak to the committee and has asked the acting director of national intelligence how to do so.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, Schiff said the Intelligence Committee is in contact with the whistleblower’s counsel and looks forward to the individual’s testimony.

The whistleblower’s complaint stems from initial allegations that Trump urged the president of Ukraine to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump’s potential 2020 opponent, for political purposes.
