Trump Now Claims He Didn't Send Rudy to Dig Up Dirt on Biden in Ukraine but His Call With Zelensky Says Otherwise

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, remains one of the key players in the impeachment inquiry against his client.

In addition to frequently bragging about traveling to Ukraine to implement Trump's pressure campaign on Ukrainian officials to dig up political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the man formerly known as "America's Mayor" is cited in numerous testimonies as a hindrance to the foreign policy interests of the United States.


Giuliani's own words and the diplomats' testimonies have confirmed that Rudy was acting on behalf of his client.

Now, however, Trump is denying that he ever directed Giuliani to pressure Ukrainians into investigating Biden and the 2016 election.

Listen below.

Trump said:

“Rudy has other clients other than me...No, I didn’t direct him, but he is a warrior, he is a warrior.”

This may come as a surprise, but it appears the President is lying.

In the summary released by the White House of the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump specifically tells Zelensky to talk to Rudy about facilitating the investigations.

Trump is on record saying to Zelensky:

"Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the Mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General Barr. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him, that would be great."

Trump likely hoped people had ignored his calls to "read the transcript," but they had, and soon, they were calling him out.

Despite Giuliani's as yet-unwavering loyalty to Trump, people saw this coming. It's only a matter of time until Giuliani goes the way of so many other Trump devotees.

Rudy has previously said numerous times that he has "good insurance" if Trump ever does throw him under the bus, before claiming that was just sarcasm.

Guess we'll see.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
