“…just what is Giuliani thinking?” does Rudy Colludy even think

Rudy Giuliani is returning from Ukraine. He tried to divert attention from his producing propaganda with OANN support, as one of his Ukraine cronies might get called to testify in the Senate trial. Politico thinks Giuliani is “shook”, as he tries to spin distractions and disinformation.

It was another revelatory week in impeachment where it was almost impossible to pin down what left us most shook.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Democrats would proceed with articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Trump in turn urged Democrats to impeach him as soon as possible. Constitutional scholars testified that Trump’s actions related to Ukraine were the worst misconduct in presidential history. And Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani showed up in Kyiv again.

(The Rudy revelation wins the shook factor, clearly.)

However, what actually changed in the impeachment dynamic this week? Will the Judiciary hearings have a lasting impact? Will Trump ever participate under oath? And just what is Giuliani thinking?

Devin Nunes had repeated contact with Rudoph Giuliani on matters central to the investigation, potentially implicating him in Giuliani back-channel pressure campaign on Ukraine.

So many contradictions, so little time to impeachment.

Six months later, the only people Giuliani could find to meet with were the same resentful former prosecutors and several lawmakers of questionable repute.

Giuliani arrived at Kyiv’s Zhuliany airport unannounced on Dec. 4 on low-cost airline Wizz Air.

He came from Budapest, where he had met with former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko according to a tweet by Chanel Rion, a journalist with the right-wing One America News (OAN) network who traveled with Giuliani. Rion, Giuliani and the OAN crew filmed an interview with Lutsenko for a television series that the network says will debunk the impeachment inquiry.

They were joined by Andrii Telizhenko, a former Ukrainian diplomat-turned-political fixer and a commentator for the pro-Trump media; his client and former Ukrainian lawmaker Andrey Artemenko and Giuliani’s spokeswoman Christianne Allen.

Rudy is now framing a piece on Christianne Allen forthcoming from Politico.

More disinformation.

On Thursday, Giuliani — apparently posting from somewhtere in Kyiv, where he’s currently traveling as part of his ongoing international effort to dig up dirt on the Bidens — posted tweets explicitly acknowledging a link between ongoing US assistance to Ukraine and investigations into the Biden family.

“The conversation about corruption in Ukraine was based on compelling evidence of criminal conduct by then VP Biden, in 2016, that has not been resolved and until it is will be a major obstacle … to the US assisting Ukraine with its anti-corruption reforms,” Giuliani claimed, despite the fact that no such evidence has emerged.

In short, Giuliani tweeted the quid pro quo.

Speaking of anniversaries, whatever happened to the Rudy Giuliani counter-report to the Mueller Report.
