Rudy, Say It Isn’t So

He already did, but the FBI isn’t so sure

Rumor, and some news stations, are saying that all that stuff about Hunter Biden, his computer porn, his taking bribes, and running a Ukrainian scam; everything that Rudy was revealing on Fox TV? None of it was true. Rudy got all that information from a bunch of Russian and Ukrainian oil and gas oligarchs. They made it up.

Some people, people in the FBI, are looking into how and why Rudy got Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch fired. Was he was protecting US interests, or did he do it to help those very same oligarchs, and at the same time, help his client, Donald Trump, spread some muddy lies about his biggest political opponent. It now seems possible that the man who once held the honorary title of “America’s Mayor,” was in fact, working for three corrupt governments at the same time: the Russians, the ousted Ukrainian government, and Trump. At the time, even John Bolton was horrified at the things Rudi was doing in Ukraine.

Maybe Rudy is correct and this is all a political hack job. He should know a lot about those. But, from what I’ve read, if a foreign country attempts to influence an American election by spreading lies, distortions, and divisive messages, that is almost an act of war. And, if an American citizen is working with that government to help them with that task, especially if that American citizen has very direct connections to the American president, that is a crime also. I’m not a lawyer, but I think it’s called treason.

None of this is new or startling to people who have been paying attention to what Rudy has been doing for the last two years. He seems to feel this is his path to fame and fortune. A lot of this came up when the president at the time was impeached because of what was going on in Ukraine. The Republicans decided that they didn’t want to hear about, or look at the evidence. That makes them complicit in all of this too. (I don’t know about the FBI, but I would have a few questions I’d like to ask Representative Nunez.)

In addition, there was a note in a recent government report that stated that there is now clear evidence that after Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Mr. Manafort, gave some polling data and strategic messaging targets to his Russian friend, Mr. Kilimnik, and that the information was quickly forwarded to the Russian agency that was already using social media to discredit Hillary Clinton and boost Trump.

Rudy wasn’t involved with that. At that time he might have still been thinking about running for president himself. But his polling numbers were not very good.

I have no way of knowing, but it seems very possible that since the current FBI is no longer being stifled by the Attorney General, perhaps they are pulling on some of the threads that Mr. Mueller was not allowed to pursue. When you pull enough threads, the whole cover might come apart, and with it the cover-up. Maybe we will all learn a lot more about what really went on between Trump and Russia.

I’ve been waiting for that for years. I wonder how they will report that story on Fox News?
