Giuliani in secret meetings with former Ukrainian diplomat: report

Published

According to a report in the Washington Post, Rudy Giuliani, one of Donald Trump’s legal advisers, has been holding secret meetings with a former Ukranian diplomat — but refuses to say what his conversations entail.

The reports states that the former New York City mayor met with former diplomat Andrii Telizhenko, who is notable for having previously “made unproven claims that the Democratic National Committee worked with the Kiev government in 2016 to dig up incriminating information” about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Giuliani recently made news after he announced he wanted to work with Ukranian officials to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — but had publically backed down after receiving an avalanche of criticism.

In an interview, Giulini admitted to having the meeting — but was close-mouthed about what transpired.

Telizhenko “was in Washington and he came up to New York, and we spent most of the afternoon together,” Giuliani explained, then brushed aside questions about what was discussed, saying, “When I have something to say, I’ll say it.”

For his part, Telizhenko admitted meeting with the president’s legal adviser, stating, “We spoke on US-Ukraine relations and politics in DC and Ukraine.”

Several professional epidemiologists have told The Atlantic that they've been shocked at the Trump administration's failed response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which so far has killed 155,000 Americans in just five months.

In the story, journalist Ed Yong writes that he has spoken with more than 100 different infectious disease experts over the last several months and has "learned that almost everything that went wrong with America’s response to the pandemic was predictable and preventable."

Trump embraces a poisonous view of the Jewish people as the world sees a startling rise in anti-Semitism

Published

It’s the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. When Japan signed the instruments of surrender on Sept. 2, 1945, it was the last of a series of notable events that took place that year.

The first was the liberation, on Jan. 27, 1945, of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most notorious of the extermination camps operated by Nazi Germany, imperial Japan’s Axis ally.

Post-Holocaust, the fervent credo of a Jewish community that witnessed approximately six million of its numbers perish in under five years — half of all European Jews and more than a third of Jews worldwide — has been “Never again!”
