Hey, guess what, I think Rudy’s corrupt!

The CEO of Ukraine’s state-owned gas and oil company Naftogaz said on Friday that he would be willing to provide testimony to U.S. federal prosecutors currently investigating Rudy Giuliani’s foreign business dealings in the region.
“I will with a high likelihood be invited to testify in this case,” Naftogaz of Ukraine CEO Andriy Kobolyev said in an interview with Time. “If I am called, I would be willing to come and testify.”
As previously reported by Law&Crime, federal authorities are looking into whether Giuliani and his recently indicted business associates/clients, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were attempting to leverage their political influence in Ukraine to land lucrative contracts with Naftogaz, the country’s state-owned oil and gas company.
According to Time, federal authorities in the Southern District of New York plan to have Kobolyev — widely viewed an anti-corruption reformer — testify behind closed-doors about the efforts to replace him at Naftogaz.
Asked if he was going to provide evidence about Giuliani or about Parnas and Fruman, Kobolyev claimed to have relevant information about all of the above.
“Both,” Kobolyev responded. “Everything is connected,” he added.
“Everything is connected” I think that may end up being the slogan from the impeachment hearings.
At this point it does not seem as if this investigation has cuaght the attention of Congress, but I imagine that it will.
Right now it must feel to everybody associated with Trump as if the walls are closing in.
Everywhere you look there is a lawsuit, subpoena, or ongoing investigation targeted toward Trump himself or one of his people.
That level of stress would drive most pwople crazy, and since Trump and Giulini already appear to be crazy one wonders how it will ultimately affect them.
Ot perhaps more concerning, how it will affect all of us.
