REVEALED: Giuliani’s henchmen wanted him to star in infomercials for sketchy Fraud Guarantee company

Published

on

Lev Parnas and David Correia, two henchmen of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani who were arrested last month on campaign finance charges, wanted to enlist the former New York mayor to star in a series of infomercials for their fraud-prevention company called Fraud Guarantee.

The Daily Beast reports that the two henchmen “had plans to expand Giuliani’s role with the company” that included “a television infomercial featuring Giuliani extolling the virtues of Fraud Guarantee and its services.”

The initial plan was to have Giuliani start shooting Fraud Guarantee infomercials after the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Those plans have since been scuttled given the legal troubles now facing the company’s founders. What’s more, as the Wall Street Journal reported last week, the company had “no identifiable customers,” so it’s questionable how serious the company was about expanding its commercial appeal.

The name “Fraud Guarantee” has become a running joke after it was revealed that the company was allegedly used to fraudulently funnel illegal campaign donations to Republican political candidates.

“Its name — which, read literally, seems to be guaranteeing that its customers will be defrauded — appears to have been crafted to sanitize search-engine results for Parnas’ name, so that people searching for, say, ‘Lev Parnas’ and ‘fraud’ would instead find his company,” the Daily Beast notes.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee and one-time half-term governor of Alaska appeared Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America," where she complained about the media coverage of her failed 2008 campaign alongside Sen. John McCain.

"A lot of the coverage of me was quite unfair," Palin said. "I hope that they will treat her fairly, but at the same time, no kid gloves ... the American voter wants to know that we have the most capable people running and who will be elected, regardless of gender, regardless of race."

Speaking to Fox News, Vice President Mike Pence tried to put a positive spin on the economy — by taking the economic rebound of the past 3 months, and claiming that the raw number of jobs created during that period beats the entirety of job growth in President Barack Obama's 8-year administration.
