Giuliani gets busted for pushing Seth Rich conspiracy — then insults reporter’s lack of ‘seductive reasoning’

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani lashed out at a reporter who questioned him about pushing a discredited conspiracy theory about slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer tweeted out a cryptic message about Rich, who was murdered in July 2016 in a case police call a robbery attempt gone wrong, promoted by a conspiracy theorist who was sued by the slain DNC staffer’s brother, reported The Daily Beast.

Fox News host Sean Hannity and other Trump allies have claimed Rich was a whistleblower who handed over DNC emails to WikiLeaks and was then murdered at the direction of Hillary Clinton, but Rich’s family have begged them to stop pushing the conspiracy theories, which aren’t supported by any evidence.

Giuliani responded angrily to The Daily Beast reporter when asked about the conspiracy theory.

“I didn’t support any conspiracy theory,” Giuliani texted the reporter. “I raised several nagging coincidences.”

“I vaguely remember it and was asking a question about whether it was ever investigated fully,” Giuliani added. “Don’t remember if it was ever solved? Was it.”

He contacted the reporter again after the article was published to issue a poorly spelled attack.

“Either you haven’t been trained in proper seductive [sic] reasoning or the most truthful explanation is irrelevant,” Giuliani texted.

Joe Biden’s challenge was simply surviving the onslaught, in tact. He more than achieved that while Trump more than failed at his challenge. Trump alienated everyone with his ugly interruptions and meltdowns — even though most of his own supporters will vote for him nonetheless.

Court rules the Trump administration policing panel broke the law — and must halt its work

Published

on

U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled Thursday that one of President Donald Trump's "blue ribbon panels" broke public meetings laws, reported Politico.

The law enforcement panel violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, according to the federal court judge, by only allowing law enforcement on the commission and by holding meetings in secret.

"The commission’s final report was set to go to Attorney General William Barr later this month, but Bates said no recommendations can be submitted until the panel remedies the legal violations," Politico reported.
