Rudy Giuliani visited Ukraine and Hungary to film a television series with a pro-Trump media outlet promoting a right-wing conspiracy theory about impeachment.
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, who was benched this week by Fox News, took part in the production in Kyiv and Budapest by the conservative channel One America News, reported the New York Times.
The series, which has already aired two episodes, is being presented as a Republican alternative to the House impeachment hearings, and includes interviews with Ukrainians who Democratic investigators declined to call as witnesses.
Those Ukrainian sources — including former Ukrainian prosecutors Yuriy Lutsenko, Viktor Shokin and Kostiantyn Kulyk — were sworn in on camera to “testify under oath” in interviews with OANN reporter Chanel Rion.
The pro-Trump network claims their production “debunks the impeachment hoax.”
All three of those former prosecutors have faced allegations of corruption, and each has played a role in pushing claims against Joe Biden that Trump has asked his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate.
Giuliani and Rion have already interviewed former Ukrainian official Mykhaylo Okhendovsky last month in Washington for an episode that aired Tuesday night.
Critics of sweeping policy changes always make one huge mistake: Robert Reich
In last Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg charged that Senator Bernie Sanders’ policy proposals would cost $50 trillion. Holy Indiana.
Larry Summers, formerly chief White House economic advisor for Barack Obama, puts the price tag at $60 trillion. “We are in a kind of new era of radical proposal,” he told CNN.
Bernie Sanders campaign accepts apology from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews: ‘We got to get past it’
MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews on Monday apologized to the Bernie Sanders campaign after comparing his dominance in the first three states of the 2020 presidential nomination to the fall of France to the Nazis in World War II.
Sanders senior advisor Chuck Rocha was asked on Fox News for response.
"Look, we all get hot and say things in the moment, I'm glad Chris apologized," Rocha said. "We got to move on and get past it, I'm glad he said what he had to say, I'm tired of folks on Twitter fighting with each other, it's time to win this election."
‘Breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy’ of the GOP may win Trump reelection: Nobel economist
Donald Trump was blasted for his economic policies by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman -- who worries it just might work to get the president reelected.
"It may have slipped by you, but last week Donald Trump suggested that he may be about to give U.S. farmers — who have yet to see any benefits from his much-touted trade deal with China — another round of government aid," Krugman wrote in The New York Times. "This would be on top of the billions in farm aid that Trump has already delivered, costing taxpayers several times as much as Barack Obama’s auto bailout — a bailout Republicans fiercely denounced as 'welfare' and 'crony capitalism' at the time."
