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.
Trump’s Georgia rally will be a ‘grievance-fest’ and he’ll ignore the GOP’s Senate candidates: Republican insiders
According to a report from the Independent, Georgia Republicans are nervously eyeing Donald Trump's planned rally in their state late Saturday having no idea whether he will lend them a hand holding onto the two seats in the U.S. Senate or whether he will spend the time ranting about the election he believes was stolen from him.
With both Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler's seats at stake -- as well as control of the U.S. Senate -- Republicans have been working overtime to correct the impression that voter fraud led to the state's 16 Electoral College votes going to former Vice President Joe Biden and cost Trump a second term.
CNBC’s Rick Santelli ripped as ‘psychopath’ for on-air ‘meltdown’ over COVID-19 restrictions
CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin and Rick Santelli clashed over coronavirus restrictions, setting off another round of discussion on social media.
The conservative Santelli loudly insisted that bars and restaurants, which are shut down in many areas, were no more dangerous than large retailers, which have mostly been allowed to stay open, and Sorkin cut him off.
“Rick, just as a public-health and public-service announcement for the audience, the difference between a big-box retailer and a restaurant or, frankly, even a church, are so different it’s unbelievable,” Sorkin said, as Santelli kept interrupting. “Going into a big-box retailer, you’re wearing a mask.”
Federal judge says Trump pardon of Michael Flynn may have been ‘too broad’: report
A trial judge has raised the possibility that the federal judge overseeing the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn could find that President Trump's pardon of Flynn may be "too broad," according to The National Law Journal.
The comments “came unexpectedly” during a Freedom of Information Act hearing about releasing documents from special counsel Robert Mueller's office, according to BuzzFeed reporter Jason Leopold.
