President Donald Trump has just admitted he sent his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, to Ukraine to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter. This is the first time Trump has made this admission, previously he has denied directing the former NYC mayor and at times even distancing himself from him.

Trump made the admission in a podcast to Geraldo Rivera, who asked: “Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer? Are you sorry you did that?”

“No, not at all,” Trump replied, as CNN reports, before detailing his though process and reasons for turning outside the government and established processes.

“Here’s my choice: I deal with the Comeys of the world, or I deal with Rudy,” Trump said, calling his attorney a “crime fighter.”

Trump explained that he has “a very bad taste” of the US intelligence community, because of the Russia investigation, so he turned to Giuliani.

“So when you tell me, why did I use Rudy, and one of the things about Rudy, number one, he was the best prosecutor, you know, one of the best prosecutors, and the best mayor,” Trump said. “But also, other presidents had them. FDR had a lawyer who was practically, you know, was totally involved with government. Eisenhower had a lawyer. They all had lawyers.”

As recently as November, as the impeachment inquiry was expanding, Trump was asked if he has told Giuliani to go to Ukraine to dig up dirt.

“No, I didn’t direct him,” Trump lied.

Wallace let Trump tell outrageous lies, dominate the time and did little to bring order to the event.

Here's some of what people were saying about the Fox host:

Does Chris Wallace know who Trump is? Has he seen the past four years? Wallace needs to excuse himself (his voice is shaking) and leave the stage. Is there a back up moderator in the wings? Any female journalist will do.

At the first 2020 presidential debate between the two men, Biden was asked about his position on expanding the Supreme Court. But the candidate refused to give a direct answer.

"Are you going to pack the court?" Trump interrupted.

"Let people know," Biden said.

‘Everybody knows he’s a liar’: Biden smacks down Trump for claiming he wants socialized medicine

At Tuesday night's debate, President Donald Trump tried to go after Joe Biden on health care by claiming that he agrees with Sen. Bernie Sanders' "manifesto" on single-payer health care — even though Biden is on record saying that he prefers a public option and expansion of the Affordable Care Act.

“Everything he’s saying here is simply a lie — everybody knows he’s a liar,” said Biden, repeatedly reminding the audience that Trump has attacked the ACA and tried to destroy it.

"I guess you lost the left!" snapped Trump, in response to Biden articulating his preference for a public option.
