Arrested Giuliani henchmen were ‘frequent guests at Mar-a-Lago’: Former GOP congressman

Published

Rudy Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman — who were arrested while attempting to flee the country — had met with a former Republican congressman from Florida.

Former Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) recounted his interactions with the two during a Thursday interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

“So Ari, these gentlemen were up on the Hill in the spring of last year and they were lobbying on cannabis policy, were trying to build relationships with members, and they came to my office,” he explained. “They stood out a little bit. They had an air of flamboyance to them, but I had no reason to believe that they were up to anything nefarious. They didn’t give any clues as to any of this that we’re now discovering.”

“However, they did make it a point to say a few times that they had very good relationships with the White House, that they were frequent guests at Mar-a-Lago, and -—” he continued.

“Did they mention Giuliani?” Melber interjected.

“They did mention that they had a close friendship with Mayor Giuliani,” Curbelo replied.

The former congressman also expected that the two would flip and cooperate with federal prosecutors.

“If I had to guess, after having interacted briefly with these gentlemen for some time, I think that they’re going to want to cooperate as much as possible,” he noted. “To protect themselves.”

A shocking expose in The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed that Peter Navarro invented the name "Ron Vara," an anagram for Navarro, to justify his own opinions in his books.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.

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

"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.

Sale's departure was announced soon after Giuliani said on Tuesday that he would not comply with subpoenas from House Democrats.

Published

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."
