Rick Perry can stop Rudy Giuliani from being the scapegoat — by implicating Trump and Pence: Ex-FBI agent

Published

on

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry was subpoenaed by the House of Representatives as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and the administration soliciting foreign election interference.

“Breaking news in the just the last few minutes a new subpoena for Rick Perry, the latest Trump Administration official snared in the Ukrainian scandal, the man Trump tried to blame for the July 25th call at the center of his own impeachment,” MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace reported.

“He’s also conveniently expected to resign by the end of next month,” she added.

For analysis, Wallace interviewed former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzi, who said Perry may be able to implicate Trump — as well as Vice President Mike Pence.

“Innocent people don’t act like this,” Figliuzi said. “They don’t resist and obstruct like this.”

“I think Perry could actually turn out to be a key to get us beyond [Rudy] Giuliani. I see a scenario developing, as you set forth, where Giuliani becomes the scapegoat,” he explained.

“I see Perry as being able to tell us why he went to Ukraine and not the vice president,” he continued. “What did he talk about with the vice president? What was the brief? Why did he have to go? The vice president didn’t have a cold or the flu.”

“The vice president didn’t go for a reason. And it seems to have been that they wanted it to pressure Ukraine that you’re not getting a vice-presidential visit from us until you do what we need you to do,” Figliuzi explained. “And I think Perry could be that guy who says, ‘No, this isn’t all about Giuliani, the VP and the president gave me a mandate and a briefing.'”

RNC chairwoman raked over the coals for accusing others of nepotism — despite being Mitt Romney’s niece

Published

on

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee and the niece of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) thinks that the Democrats have a problem with nepotism.

Reacting to the recently aired ABC News interview with Hunter Biden, in which the former vice president's son admitted that his family name had opened doors for him that might have otherwise been closed, McDaniel accused the Bidens of engaging in "obvious nepotism."

"Hunter Biden got $50K a month from a Ukrainian energy company, despite having ZERO experience in energy," she wrote. "His justification? That he was also on the board of Amtrak – more obvious nepotism. If that’s not the swamp, I don’t know what is!"

Giuliani fires back at Bolton after leaked deposition roils the White House

Published

on

Over the summer, former national security advisor John Bolton fiercely opposed efforts by Rudy Giuliani and others in the White House to pressure Ukraine to dig up information on Donald Trump's political rival Joe Biden and his son.

Bolton said he didn't want to be part of the "drug deal" White House Chief-of-Staff Mick Mulvany and E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland were cooking up in Ukraine. He also referred to Giuliani as "a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up.” The reports emerged from a leaked deposition by Fiona Hill, the president’s former advisor for Russian and Eurasian affairs.

Trump’s attempt to unskew impeachment polls just hilariously backfired

Published

on

President Donald Trump for the past week has frantically tried to convince his supporters that support for his impeachment is still low -- despite the fact that multiple reputable pollsters have found support for impeaching the president has increased dramatically.

According to the polling average as calculated by FiveThirtyEight, an estimated 50.3 percent of Americans now support impeachment, while 43.8 percent oppose impeachment. This is a stark contrast from just one month ago when support for impeachment was at only 40 percent, while opposition was at 51 percent.
