MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Rudy Giuliani’s lies are obvious when he starts ‘denying things no one has alleged’

Published

on

MSNBC host Katy Turn couldn’t help but ask “what is going on,” during Monday’s “Meet the Press.” The comment came after a day of gaffes from President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who Tur said is disputing accusations no one ever made.

“The president’s lawyer himself is denying the president himself hacked into the DNC and the Clinton campaign, which is strange because no one has accused the president of hacking into the DNC or the Clinton campaign,” she said at the top of Monday’s show.

She noted that Giuliani “is now denying that the president himself met with a group of Russians at Trump Tower, which is strange because no one has accused the president of meeting with a group of Russians at Trump Tower.”

Giuliani also denied there was a meeting to talk strategy ahead of the Trump Tower meeting, another thing no one ever alleged.

“So what the heck is going on?” she asked. “Well, the president’s lawyer is arguing that colluding with Russia isn’t a crime. Which is strange, because the president has been telling us for over a year now that there was not any collusion.”

“The president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is also arguing that there isn’t a single stitch of evidence of collusion,” she also observed. “Which is strange, because that’s just not true, and it’s even less true now than it’s ever been.”

She asked her political panel if the “bizarre string of claims” is a reaction to developments in the case, “which raise legitimate questions about collusion.” Giuliani is now alleging that Trump lied when he said he didn’t know his campaign met with Russia after being told the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

She also played a clip of Trump saying that anyone who hacked Hillary Clinton would be rewarded. The latest development in the case is that the Justice Department said that at least one persona created by Russian hackers was communicating with long-time Trump advisor Roger Stone.

Trump wants Ric Grenell to keep his ambassador job while also overseeing every intelligence agency: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.

But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.

‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question

Published

on

In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.

Published

on

Cybersecurity experts have been warning that it isn’t a question of whether or not the Russian government under President Vladimir Putin will try to interfere in the United States’ 2020 election — it’s a question of how successful they will be and the ways in which they will make an attempt. Three security experts (Alex Finley, John Sipher and Asha Rangappa) address this concern in a February 19 article for Just Security, warning that troubling vulnerabilities remain in the United States’ election system.
