President Donald Trump revealed on Monday that Rudy Giuliani, his personal attorney, had shared “not too much” evidence that he gathered during a recent trip to Ukraine.
“But he’s a very great crime fighter,” Trump continued. “He was probably the greatest crime fighter over the last 50 years. Very smart. He was the best mayor in the history of the city of New York. He’s a great person who loves our country.”
“And he does this out of love,” the president insisted. “Believe me. He does it out of love. He sees what goes on. He sees what’s happening. He sees the hoax that happens when they talk about impeachment hoax or the Russian collusion delusion. And he sees it. And he’s a great gentleman.”

Amy Coney Barrett’s membership in her controversial ‘covenant group’ should be probed by Democrats: Catholic theologian
Appearing on CNN early Sunday morning, Massimo Faggioli -- Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Villanova University -- said the Senate Democrats are within their rights to question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett about her religion with a focus on her specific beliefs that he asserted are out of the mainstream -- even within the church.
Speaking with CNN host Martin Savidge, Faggioli made the case that Barrett is part of a fringe "covenant" group within the Catholic religion that should be brought to light to understand how she views the world.
'Why is her devotion so much more problematic?" the CNN host asked.
Democrats have a plan to make Mitch McConnell’s life as painful as possible: report
According to a report from Politico, Senate Democrats acknowledge that they don't have the numbers to keep Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett off the court when the Senate takes up the vote -- but that doesn't mean they won't be using her controversial nomination to make Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's life a living hell as the election approaches.
With the Republican-controlled Senate poised to rush Barrett's nomination through with a vote tentatively scheduled prior to the November 3rd election, Politico is reporting that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has his colleagues on-board to "disrupt and obstruct Senate Republicans" with an assortment on procedural maneuvers that will hinder McConnell's efforts.
Trump’s Supreme Court pick has a problem with the Constitution
Nomination of conservative Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court makes us think about the role of government in our lives and the Republican majority view of winning vs. fairness.
That her lifetime confirmation will change the direction of the Supreme Court for many years is a given, and, as it happens a sop toward Donald Trump’s re-election efforts.
But what is there to learn here?
Here’s the good news about nominee Barrett: There will be no nonsense about a woman as the nominee, and minimal attention on her choices about religion, lifestyle and what she wears. She will get the same black robe as the rest.
