Rudy’s back! Donald Trump’s personal lawyer turns up at the White House
Rudy Giuliani made a surprising appearance at the White House on Wednesday, answering questions from journalists on a number of topics, although he declined to say what he was doing in Washington.
Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City, is President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and was at one point the government’s cyber tsar. He was also a figure during the president’s impeachment process when investigators asked questions about the former mayor’s clients in Ukraine.
In his unexpected appearance on the White House driveway, Giuliani spent about four minutes answering questions from the press, calling the person who leaked the information about Russian premiums a “ state criminal, ” said suspected Democratic candidate Joe. Biden “not all present” and accused the Black Lives Matters movement of attempting to destroy the police.

Giuliani had harsh words for the sources in The New York Times article that revealed an intelligence report alleging that the Russian government was paying a premium to Taliban militants for murdering U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan.
Giuliani, who made a name for himself as a federal prosecutor in New York, called the person “a state criminal” who committed a crime that “was not really treason, but comes close.”
“It is a kind of criminal in the federal government, a kind of state criminal, because he committed a very serious crime,” said Giuliani. “That was useful intelligence.
“I mean, I can’t think of a worse crime. It is not quite treason, but comes close, “he noted. “He has to be caught and you will go to prison for twenty or thirty years. I don’t care what it reveals. And what he revealed is something that is up for debate. And if the New York Times had any integrity, they wouldn’t use it. ‘
He also attacked The New York Times for publishing the story, claiming the newspaper published it so that “they could hurt Trump with another fake story.”
Giuliani then turned to attack Joe Biden, following a Trump line of attack against his democratic rival by questioning his mental abilities.
“This would be another one showing us why a cognitively handicapped man shouldn’t be present to deal with this intelligence,” Giuliani told a Biden presidency.
“Joe Biden, remember, not all of them are there,” he added. “I mean, it doesn’t work with a full deck.”
The Trump campaign has repeatedly raised questions about Biden’s mental powers, accusing him of hiding in his basement. Biden avoids campaigning during the coronavirus crisis because many states still have restrictions on large gatherings.
Trump has also attacked his rival as “Sleepy Joe.”
Biden was asked at a news conference on Tuesday if he had been tested for cognitive decline.
“I can’t wait to compare my cognitive ability to the cognitive ability of the man I run into,” he replied.
Giuliani also had harsh words for the Black Lives Matters movement after the famous George Washington Monument in New York City in Washington Square Park was daubed with red paint on Monday, as protesters rallied in the center outside City Hall, pending a controversial voice that drastically cut the city’s police budget by $ 1 billion.
He called them a “Marxist organization” to “destroy the police.”
Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization led by three recognized Marxists, go see. Black Lives Matter plans to destroy the police for three years. They finally got stupid democratic mayors to agree with them. Please remember that all, all lawlessness happens in democratic cities, run by democrats, ”he said.

And before answering questions from the press, Giuliani posed for a photo with Chanel Rion from One American News Network. Rion and Giuliani worked together on a special for the network on the Bidens ties with Ukraine.
Hunter Biden, the youngest son of the former vice president, was on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, while his father was vice president. He resigned from that seat after his work became a political hot potato. ‘
During that time, Joe Biden urged the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor, who has sued Trump and his allies, in favor of Burisma. The Bidens have denied this and there is no wrongdoing on their part. Joe Biden pointed out that it is US and international politics to ask this prosecutor to resign.
But Trump repeatedly attacked Hunter at work in Ukraine, with the line ‘Where’s Hunter?’ to his campaign collections. His use made his supporters laugh and applaud.
Trump has used Hunter’s work to accuse Joe Biden of political corruption, stating that both Bidens have benefited financially from the schemes – all of which the Biden denied. Neither Biden has been charged with any wrongdoing.

Giuliani, however, continued to pressure the issue. Trump also asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to meet Giuliani during the now infamous phone call that led to the investigation into the president’s impeachment. Parliament found him charged with two cases – Congressional impediment and abuse of power – both of which were acquitted.
Democratic investigators believed Giuliani was trying to aid President Trump’s reelection effort by digging up dirt on Biden and the Democratic National Committee in Ukraine. Giuliani also insisted that former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch be recalled.
Two of Giuliani’s associates in his work on Ukraine – Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman – are being investigated by federal prosecutors in New York’s Southern District.
Attorney General William Barr expelled the chief prosecutor in that office, Geoffrey Berman, in late June.
But Giuliani didn’t touch anything in his brief appearance in front of the cameras on Wednesday, ending his interview saying, “Must go.”
