Guliani will he be prosecuted?!
I think he deserves his own topic. Will he be prosecuted. A fourth person has been arrested in SDNY.
A fourth defendant in the federal campaign finance case involving two associates of Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, was arrested in New York on Wednesday.
David Correia, an American businessman, was taken into custody at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. Correia is one of four men charged in an indictment, which also targeted Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, a pair of Ukrainian businessmen with extensive business ties to Giuliani.
The indictment, which was filed on Oct. 10 in the Southern District of New York, alleges the defendants "conspired to circumvent the federal law against foreign influence by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates.
Court documents describe how the four defendants allegedly funneled "$1-2 million" from a Russian donor into the U.S. political system between June 2018 and April of this year.
Also he said he is not going to testify.
I think Guiliani did not see what happened to T prior personal attorney. Lessons are not being learned.
He walks around thinking that his buddy Trump is going to save him from prosecution or he will Pardon him. Well that is too bad for him since NY closed that loop hole and can now be prosecuted even if Trump does something. It’s not looking to good for him. He has to know he is being investigated. He is linked to those 4 men. I never liked him not even after 9/11. He did what any other mayor would have done. Look at his behavior after.
He did what any other mayor would have done. Look at his behavior after.
Actually I feel he is responsible for the communication breakdown and loss of life not only to the people in the towers but also to our first responders in that attack. He knew the Towers were a target after the first attack in 1993. While some things changed, not enough was done. I feel that was a deadly omission, not to totally revamp emergency plans after the first attack. All those people told to stay put. Radio transmission systems overwhelmed. It was a mess of incompetence.
So true. Giuliani gets all this credit for what was a mediocre job at best. The "American's mayor" thing is just the media creating a story. The real story is he was a mean, racist, narcissistic mayor, who announced he was separating from the mother of his kids on tv (to her surprise) and wanted to bring his mistress into the family home. His wife had to get a court order to stop him. Seriously. Before 9-11 he ordered the building, against the advice of experts, of an emergency "bunker" above ground, near the old Trade Center. It was expensive and was destroyed during he attacks. Who builds a bunker above ground near a place that had already been attacked? Rudy. Yet he barely got any flack for it, just because after the attack he behaved nicely. People were so shocked he wasn't a total jerk he got this huge pass. Soft bigotry of low expectations (of privileged white men).
He and trump aren't much different. They're both idiotic, heartless men. Hopefully they'll take each other down.
In my opinion, that attack on 9/11 stunned the nation so much that they clung/followed the current leaders that not only were asleep at the wheel and ignored the gathering threat (GW Bush) but also Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was a walking human rights abuse (Stop & Frisk) and incompetent at keeping his city safe. It could have been anyone in those leadership roles. Neither office holder did anything up to then that showed good leadership. Even before Giuliani was elected mayor he was a racist rabble rouser constantly criticizing Mayor Dinkins. I think the mayor most NYers look back on with affection was Mayor Koch despite his controversial third term and endorsement of Guiliani, Bush and Bloomberg. One thing, he never had scandal irt his personal life. He did become really critical of Guiliani and wrote a book called Giuliani: Nasty Man.
Exactly he did nothing special any leader in any state would have done the same thing during a moment of crisis.
Mayor Koch just his name gives you good vibes. I am a long islander so he was never my mayor. Just something about his name and him.
Poor Guiliani more bad news for him...it keeps getting better and better.
Guiliani pushes Trump administration to grant Visa to a Ukrainian official promising dirt on democrats
Career diplomat George Kent told congressional investigators in his closed-door testimony this week that Rudy Giuliani asked the State Department and the White House to grant a visa to the former Ukrainian official who Joe Biden had pushed to have removed when he was vice president, according to four people familiar with Kent's testimony.
Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, testified that around January 2019 Giuliani requested a visa for former Ukrainian prosecutor-general Viktor Shokin to travel to the United States. Shokin had been pushed out of his position as Ukraine's top prosecutor in 2016 after pressure from Western leaders, including Biden, over concerns that he was not pursuing corruption cases.
