State Dept. agrees to release documents on Giuliani communications

Source: The Hill

The State Department has agreed to turn over a cache of records featuring communications from President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on matters related to Ukraine, according to a joint status report filed in court late Wednesday. The agreement comes a little over a week after a federal judge ordered the State Department to begin turning over documents related to Giuliani's communications with top State officials.

The ruling came in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by American Oversight, an ethics watchdog group. The judge ruled that the department had 30 days to turn over the documents, but that both parties needed to meet to narrow the scope of American Oversight's request. The State Department is agreeing to search for records related to external communications between Giuliani, his associates Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, according to the status report released Wednesday.

The report says that "to the extent responsive records exist" the State Department will "process and produce" the documents "with appropriate redactions" by Nov. 22. The department has also agreed to process communications between Giuliani and some of Pompeo's advisers, including including State Department counselor Ulrich Brechbuhl and former senior adviser Michael McKinley.

The search will include a review of text messages, messaging platforms, emails and calendar entries. In addition, the department has agreed to American Oversight's request for records on any correspondence about Giuliani, diGenova or Toensing's plans to travel to Ukraine or encourage Ukrainian officials to investigate 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

4. !+100x First thought out of my head ... where did they hide the evidence this time?

Just like the secret server, the classifying phone calls, the papers Mueller never got ... they are obstructing, hiding, destroying evidence as we speak

2. It's all Rudy's fault.

You canít impeach Trump for actions Rudy took without his knowledge. If the State Dept. turns over ALL documents, it will mean that Rudy is under the bus and Trump is backing up to run over him again.

Trump would throw anyone under the bus to save himself and that includes all of his adult children.
