Rudy Giuliani appeared to be ‘unraveling at the seams’ during Fox News interview: presidential historian

Published

on

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” early Sunday morning, noted presidential historian Douglas Brinkley marveled at the continued appearances by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in support of Donald Trump calling it a “weird dog and pony show” being put on by the two.

Speaking with hosts Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul, Brinkley noted that Giuliani — who appeared on Fox News on Saturday and made a veiled threat at Trump — appears to be “unraveling.”

Asked by host Paul about Giuliani’s relationship with the president, the historian said it is not unusual for presidents sometimes to have an alter ego to speak for them.

“Presidents have an ego like John F. Kennedy and Ted Sorensen or somebody who understood the workings of their mind but never such a weird and dog and pony show as Trump and Giuliani,” Brinkley explained. ‘What they share is a great celebrityhood from being in New York City, where they are household names and they are Republicans.”

“But the thought that Donald Trump wants to use somebody like Giuliani, who seems to be unraveling at the seams all the time, people have to question his mental stability that the president wants to use him and this wildcard rogue creating shadow in foreign policy and digging dirt on opponents, and then bragging about it is bizarre,” he continued. “I don’t think it serves the president well to be having Giuliani anywhere near him. If anything, the one thing most Americans agree on, Democrats and Republicans, is Giuliani’s intervention in Ukraine was a mess.”

Nancy Pelosi missed a big opportunity in impeachment — but she still has time to fix it

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has her reasons for limiting her impeachment articles to offenses stemming from the abuses and violations related to Ukraine. Unfortunately, she declined to pursue a broader impeachment approach that recognizes multiple provable, serious violations of the Constitution. Speaker Pelosi overruled Chairs of Committees, including the Judiciary Committee, and other senior lawmakers who wanted to forward to the Senate a broader array of impeachable offenses.

Having lost four of the last five House elections to the worst Republican Party in history, Speaker Pelosi remains cautious. She is overly worried about the conservative Democrats who won congressional seats in 2018 in Republican, pro-Trump districts. Endangering their seats might, Pelosi fears, lead to the loss of the House in 2020 and, more immediately, risk not having the votes in the House to pass additional impeachable offenses.

McConnell under pressure to wrap up Trump impeachment trial quickly without alienating wavering GOP senators

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is under pressure from the White House and some of his Republican colleagues to move quickly to acquit Donald Trump by speeding up his impeachment trial while not upsetting some wavering GOP lawmakers who are fearful for their reputations in an election year.

The report notes that a Trump acquittal is a foregone conclusion, with GOP lawmakers admitting as much.

“The question is going to come to ‘Have you heard enough to make a decision or do you want witnesses?’ If people say, ‘We’re ready to vote,’ we’re going to vote right then,” explained Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY).

Are Trump and his circle manipulating the markets for personal gain? Here’s the evidence

Published

on

Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstructing a congressional investigation into his attempt to blackmail a foreign country into aiding him in the 2020 presidential election. He is now the third president in American history to have earned that ignominious distinction.

Trump will not be convicted by the Republicans in the Senate for his crimes.

The public evidence is damning. There is no evidence that could possibly exonerate him. Trump is publicly bragging about committing crimes against the Constitution and the American people. The Republican Party and its propaganda news media have decided to ignore reality and fully immerse themselves in TrumpWorld. They have pledged total loyalty to him and no evidence will move them. The Republicans and their news media and public are authoritarian lemmings.
