Trump: Giuiani Will Deliver A Report To Barr, Congress On His Findings In Ukraine

Source: Talking Points Memo

By Nicole Lafond

December 7, 2019 5:22 p.m.

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani will deliver a “report” to Congress and Attorney General Bill Barr about his latest findings in Ukraine, Trump told reporters on Saturday.

“He’s going to make a report, I think to the attorney general and to Congress. He says he has a lot of good information. I have not spoken to him about that information yet,” Trump said. “He has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress … and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice. I hear he has found plenty.”

While it’s unclear what “information” Trump is referencing, it likely has something to do with Giuliani’s ongoing efforts to peddle fabricated dirt in Ukraine about President Trump’s political rivals. This Giuliani-led pressure campaign to get the Ukrainian government to open investigations has formed the basis of the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

Giuliani openly traveled to Ukraine to meet with the very Ukrainian prosecutors at the heart of conspiracies about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, just as the impeachment proceedings were handed over to the House Judiciary Committee back home. A right-wing news channel, One American News Network — which is slowly replacing Fox News as Trump’s favorite news outlet — is producing a documentary on Giuliani’s antics and the travel is part of that filming.

23. I doubt he can just walk into the Capitol and demand to make a "report."

I don't the Rules would allow that. It would take away all control the committee chairmen would have in how they want to conduct the process.

My only questions would be, "Did you prepare this report at the direction of the president?" and "Did you present yourself to Ukrainian officials as someone who was doing a government authorized investigation?"

12. Rudy's on a train to nowhere

Rudy's on a train to nowhere, halfway down the line
He don't wanna get there, but he needs time
He ain't sophisticated, nor well-educated
After all the hours he wasted, still he needs time.
He needs time - he needs time for livin',
He needs time - for someone just to see him.
He ain't had no lovin'
For no reason or rhyme
And the whole world's above him.
Well it's not as though he's fat-
No there's more to this than that-
See he tries to play it cool-
Wouldn't be nobodys fool.

Rudy thought that all good things comes to those that wait
But recently he could see that it may come too late.

All through your life, all through the years
Nobody loved, nobody cared.
So dim the light, dark are your fears
Try as I might, I can't hold back the tears
How can you live without love, it's not fair?
Someone said give but I just didn't dare.
What good advice are you waiting to hear?
Hearing's alright for them that's all there
You'd better gain control now
You'd better show'em all now
You'd better make or break now
You'd better give and take now
You'll have to push and shove now
You'll have to find some love now
You'd better gain control now.
Now he's just come out the movie.
Numb of all the pain,
Sad but in a while he'll soon be
back on his train...

The fix is in; whether its a secret pardon or just barr refusing to allow it, he isnt going anywhere.

If we had a real Justice Dept, Rudy would have been arrested already for impersonating a government official.

contacted Congress about an urgent matter that turned out to be propaganda and conspiracy theories about Yovanovitch and Ukraine sent from Rudy with in a fake WH envelope? Jamie Raskin was the only member of Congress who attended the meeting and came out confused about why or urgency was. Now we know, it was all part of the same continuing plot.

42. Here's an idea....

Bring in 4 national security experts and hold public hearings on the points and sources in guiliani's report, without rudy, and without the report.

Rudy is a compulsive liar, and clearly thinks trump will pardon him for flat out lying to congress.

Call out the sources for the liars they are, discredit the "report", and make rudy a laughing stock. If you want him on lying to congress, just get him to answer questions in writing under oath.

they are counting on the dems ignoring it. Then they can wave it around, and maybe even bring it up in the senate, where it can't be easily attacked.

44. Giuliani in Ukraine, also being the President's personal lawyer, is FAR more than a perception of

conflict of interest than Hunter Biden's seat on the board. In 2014, neither Biden or anyone in the Obama administration ever endorsed Hunter as representing them and they did nothing in his or Burisma's interests. Here, Trump's tweet - among other things - clearly signals that Giuliani represents him.

If not for being the President's lawyer and the fact that the President told many people in his administration and in Ukraine that they should listen to Giuliani, Giuliani could say that he was doing investigative work. However, many people he is "interviewing" are from the corrupt Pro Russia government that was shown to have been extremely corrupt when the leader fled the country and went to Moscow.

Supposedly one thing Trump wants is to prove that Manaford was framed. However, the trial was based on money trails that showed that he violated American laws. The trial was not based on records from Ukraine that showed the amount of money he got - even if those records may have been what first brought this to light.

48. TPM: Another oligarch linked to Guiliani campaign for dirt

This time it's Ihor Kolomoisky, an oligarch once seen as the power behind the throne of Zelensky (mostly because he owned the TV station that carried Zelensky's comedy series).

Link: https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/kolomoisky-giuliani-cummins-ukraine-biden-dirt

His name is Ihor Kolomoisky, and he was once seen as the power behind the throne of President Volodymyr Zelensky. He has a lot to gain from any favor he can curry with the Trump administration: An FBI probe into his finances threatens to deprive Kolomoisky of his earnings and his freedom.

The nature and extent of Kolomoisky’s involvement in the pressure campaign remains unclear. There’s some indication that he began dishing the kind of bogus political dirt that Giuliani and Trump are seeking as far back as 2018. But in the murky world where Ukraine business and politics overlap, Kolomoisky has largely managed to remain on the periphery of the coverage of the Trump scandal.

That is, at least, until Rudy waltzed back into town.

Giuliani’s Kyiv trip last week gave away the game, according to Ukraine observers. He took a series of meetings with figures known for their close association with Kolomoisky. According to these Kolomoisky associates’ own accounts and Ukraine news reports, they fed more dirt to Giuliani, who was an eager recipient. One longtime Western official stationed in Kyiv, speaking anonymously due to lack of authorization to speak publicly, told TPM that it seemed Kolomoisky was “trying to become friends with Trump and Giuliani.”
