Looney Rudy Tries To Destroy The Bidens

<> on May 30, 2018 in Washington, DC.

On October 5, 2019 the Wall Street Journal’s Alan Cullison, Rebecca Ballhaus, and Dustin Volz reported that, during a July phone call with Ukraine’s president, Trump pressured him “about eight times” to work with his lawyer Rudy Giuliani on an investigation into Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

The Journal did not confirm that any quid-pro-quo involving military aid was involved. On Thursday, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani tweeted that if Trump told Ukraine to “investigate corruption that affects US” he’d just be “doing his job,” and complaining that “the Biden Family… bilked millions from Ukraine.” (Giuliani later told a reporter that he wasn’t confirming Trump actually did this — he was just saying, if he did do this, it would be fine and dandy. Giuliani has also previously confirmed that he himself has been trying to get Ukraine to investigate Biden.)

If Trump did this, it would be a shockingly corrupt use of his foreign policy powers — a demand that a foreign country intervene in the 2020 election to help him by digging up dirt on his potential opponent, or have its security put at risk.

And the inspector general for the intelligence community has said the complaint “relates to one of the most significant and important of the DNI’s responsibilities to the American people.”

Last week’s Ukraine revelation prompted Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani — who was in the news months ago for his dealings with Ukraine — to go on CNN and made a disastrous attempt to get ahead of the story. If anything, Giuliani made it worse, by seemingly confirming the long-standing, but vaguely sourced reports, that Trump’s administration was trying to pressure Ukraine into investigating former vice president (and frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination) Joe Biden — perhaps by withholding military aid to Ukraine unless they complied.

Giuliani insisted to CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he didn’t ask Ukrainian officials to investigate Biden — but then, less than 30 seconds later, did a complete about-face and admitted that “of course” he did just that.

Recent reports last week about Trump and Attorney General William Barr’s contact with leaders in Australia, Italy, and the UK have created a sense of sprawling mess, making it seem like a tough-to-follow meta-scandal akin to the Trump-Russia morass.

But despite the new developments — which involve Trump and Barr attempting to enlist foreign leaders’ help in investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia probe — the scandal remains straightforward.

President Trump has turned American foreign policy into an extortion racket, abusing his powers to goad foreign leaders into persecuting his domestic rivals and improve his political standing. The proof for this in the case of Ukraine is irrefutable. The other news stories are supporting evidence that Trump has systematically twisted US foreign policy into a tool for furthering his 2020 election chances with unfounded lies about Biden and any other Democrat he can scandalize with his tweeter rants.
