Rudy Giuliani Tried to Claim He 'Did Not Dig Up Dirt on Joe Biden' and Jake Tapper Clapped Back With Receipts
President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is known by some to hurt his client more than help him.
Such was the case on Monday afternoon, after Trump's impeachment defense attorney, Jane Raskin, defended Giuliani on the Senate floor, dismissing the idea that he went to Ukraine to look for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
2016 Video of Lindsey Graham Emotionally Praising Joe Biden Re-emerges as Graham Pursues Investigation Into Biden
Numerous Republican lawmakers who railed against then-candidate Donald Trump became his most loyal subjects after he ascended to the Presidency in an upset victory.
Few, however, have taken a more radical ideological shift than Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who said during the campaign that Donald Trump would corrupt the soul of the United States. He's now, famously, one of Trump's most devoted servants—especially throughout the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump Said Rudy Giuliani 'Looks for Corruption Wherever He Goes' and the Jokes Came Rolling In
After the arrests of several associates of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, the press asked the President if he was concerned.
Mired in an impeachment inquiry of his own which includes actions taken by his personal lawyer on his behalf, concerns would be warranted. However the President reaffirmed his commitment to Giuliani.
President Trump’s administration continues to polarize government officials all over the country. On April 18th, New York’s Attorney General asked Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislators for the power to ignore presidential pardons issued by Trump.
At that time, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged the governor and state legislative leaders to eliminate a standing loophole that exists in New York double jeopardy law. As it currently stands, the law shields individuals who have received presidential pardons from state prosecution. However, on May 7th, Schneidermann resigned as Attorney General, in response to four women accusing him of abuse.
Former Trump Advisor Sold Millions In Steel-Related Stock Last Week and It Sure Looks Like He Was Tipped Off
In a move that now raises eyebrows, billionaire investor and longtime confidant of President Donald Trump, Carl Icahn, sold $31.3 million of stock in a company heavily dependent on steel last week. The sale was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday, February 22.
The move came just in time; only a week before Trump announced plans to impose tariffs on steel imports. That announcement caused stocks in companies heavily dependent on steel, like the one Icahn dumped his stock from, to fall overnight.
In January, President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey had dinner together. That fact may be the only part of the evening on which both sides agree.
During an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, Trump told the story first. In response to Holt's questions about when Comey told the president he was not under investigation, Trump replied with his version of the meeting.
President Donald Trump earned criticism and questions after last night's surprise firing of FBI Director James Comey. Republican reactions were more mixed than those coming from political commentators and Democrats, but still included calls for an independent investigation.
John McCain used the occasion to continue his calls for a special prosecutor. "While the President has the legal authority to remove the Director of the FBI, I am disappointed in the President’s decision to remove James Comey from office. James Comey is a man of honor and integrity, and he has led the FBI well in extraordinary circumstances," said McCain. "I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The president’s decision to remove the FBI Director only confirms the need and the urgency of such a committee.”
