George Conway: Rudy Giuliani may have sealed Trump’s doom by blabbing about Ukraine in May

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani made clear months ago in an interview that assisting President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign would benefit Ukraine.

The president and his personal attorney have confirmed they reached out to Ukraine’s president and asked for campaign dirt against Joe Biden, and Trump admitted that he withheld U.S. aid to the country as leverage.

George Conway, the conservative attorney and husband of White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, showed why Giuliani’s remarks in May could come back to haunt the president.

“There’s nothing illegal about it,” Giuliani told the New York Times nearly five months ago. “Somebody could say it’s improper, and this isn’t foreign policy — I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop.”

“I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government,” Giuliani added.

Conway said the remarks showed corrupt intent and served as evidence of a quid pro quo extended to Ukraine.

“Note Giuliani’s hierarchy of priorities. A Ukrainian probe primarily *will* help Trump *personally*; and only secondarily *may* help the United States,” Conway tweeted. “That was Trump’s hierarchy of priorities, too — himself first, the country last — and that’s what makes his conduct impeachable.”

The attorney said the pair’s efforts to spin a conspiracy theory about the former vice president’s son Hunter Biden was clearly intended to help Trump win re-election, but Conway said Giuliani’s comments could serve as evidence to impeach the president.

“That’s not to say that Trump and Giuliani’s pursuit of a mendacious conspiracy theory could in any way help the United States; in fact, it was detrimental to our country,” Conway tweeted. “But Giuliani’s remark shows how easy a bill of impeachment would be to prove even at this early stage.”

Published

With just two weeks on the job, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani is reportedly already parting ways with his client.

Earlier this month, Giuliani tapped former Watergate prosecutor Jon Sale to head up his legal team.

"He 100 percent did not do anything illegal," Sale insisted at the time.

CNN reporter Erica Orden revealed on Monday that Sale would no longer be working for Giuliani. No additional details were immediately available.

Earlier this week, Giuliani's business partner resigned from their security company.

This pro-Trump pastor is now praying for impeachment after watching Republicans ‘sell their souls to the devil’

Published

on

A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
