Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday appeared on Fox Business and proceeded to make yet another blunder while discussing President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals.
During an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Giuliani was asked if Trump ever threatened to withhold foreign aid from Ukraine unless it launched a probe into former Vice President Joe Biden.
Giuliani replied that Trump didn’t do that, but when Bartiromo asked if he could say that with 100 percent certainty, he stammered and said, “Well, I can’t tell you if it’s 100 percent.”
Giuliani’s latest disastrous interview set off howls of both rage and laughter on Twitter — check out some reactions below.
“Did Trump threaten to withhold aid from Ukraine to pressure them to investigate Biden?”
Giuliani: “Well I cant say 100%.” 🤔
Y’all. If Obama did any of this Republicans would’ve impeached 100 times by now. pic.twitter.com/45DtSLsKjY

Rudy Giuliani continues to set himself and his client #DonaldTrump on fire.
On Fox News a few minutes ago, Giuliani can't say 100% that Trump didn't threaten Ukraine aid to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.

This is a guy who used to know the sentencing recommendations for every Federal crime in his jurisdiction. Now he is unclear on numbers.
Sundown, you better take care, if I find you sleeping on Rudy's back stair.

Haul Rudy before Congress and if he doesn't come enforce inherent contempt — fines, or yes, jail. Make admin then have to get injunction to keep him out of jail, and thus force this up through the courts. No attorney/client privilege when you're blabbing like crazy. https://t.co/PKK7viZb3R

A true test of journalism is knowing what to ignore. Rudy Giuliani should be ignored because he has no credibility. He's no different than Alex Jones or Jacob Wohl at this point. Let's see how much real journalism is practiced today.

It's too early on the morning to be drinking Rudy. Go dry out in Ukraine.

‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who sits on the House Intelligence Committee accidentally mistook a satirical article with a fake transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized for the error, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.
Impeachment is outlined in the U.S. Constitution and the section of the founding document gives examples of what they meant by "high crimes and misdemeanors." It does not cite accidentally reading the wrong transcript aloud. Members of Congress cannot be impeached and censure is a toothless resolution that is meaningless.
Facebook reveals how Russia is already trying to manipulate the 2020 presidential election
On Monday, in a series of announcements by Facebook, the company revealed it had shut down four new foreign interference operations originating from Russia and Iran. According to their announcement, one appears to be linked to the Russian troll agency, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), and was targeting the U.S. 2020 presidential election.
The company removed 50 Instagram accounts and one account on Facebook that originated in Russia and focused primarily on the United States.
Republicans’ laughable effort to attack Adam Schiff lands with a thud
Republicans' effort to castigate California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee spearheading the impeachment inquiry, met a quick and sudden defeat on Monday in a vote of 218-185.
Spurred on by President Donald Trump's attacks on the chairman, GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy led an effort to censure Schiff on the House floor. On what grounds? It's almost too absurd to make up: lying.
The party of Donald Trump — who lied more times in the hours before the censure vote than Schiff even stands accused of — actually claimed that it's the California lawmaker who should be called out for dishonesty.
