Rudy Giuliani heading to Ukraine to get dirt to derail Joe Biden campaign.

Wait, what?

Courtesy of NYT:

Mr. Giuliani said he plans to travel to Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in the coming days and wants to meet with the nation’s president-elect to urge him to pursue inquiries that allies of the White House contend could yield new information about two matters of intense interest to Mr. Trump.

One is the origin of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.

Mr. Giuliani’s plans create the remarkable scene of a lawyer for the president of the United States pressing a foreign government to pursue investigations that Mr. Trump’s allies hope could help him in his re-election campaign. And it comes after Mr. Trump spent more than half of his term facing questions about whether his 2016 campaign conspired with a foreign power.

“We’re not meddling in an election, we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,” Mr. Giuliani said in an interview on Thursday when asked about the parallel to the special counsel’s inquiry.

“There’s nothing illegal about it,” he said. “Somebody could say it’s improper. And this isn’t foreign policy — I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop. And I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government.”

Mr. Giuliani’s planned trip, which has not been previously reported, is part of a monthslong effort by the former New York mayor and a small group of Trump allies working to build interest in the Ukrainian inquiries. Their motivation is to try to discredit the special counsel’s investigation; undermine the case against Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s imprisoned former campaign chairman; and potentially to damage Mr. Biden, the early front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

So for those paying attention, yes this is the Trump campaign reaching out to yet another foreign government to help them defeat a political adversary. 

You know I’m old enough to remember when super unethical and immoral things like this were done in secret. 

Not anymore.

In Trump’s America being a complete unethical douchebag is not only no longer shameful, in some circles, it’s a badge of honor.

    The Republican end game is becoming clearer. Creating a Anglo Xian utopia. Goodbye to all the things that made the US exceptional.

    Well, at least now we know what was discussed during that 90-minute phone call between Putin and Trump.

    “So, again, he’s not doing it on behalf of the campaign … I think one of the things we have to ask ourselves is — the underlying issue at hand is that, was there any kind of undue influence or was there any kind of inappropriate activities that were conducted either in relation to the start of the investigation or in as it related to the Bidens.”

    we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,”
    ======================
    Oh really, who gave them the right to meddle in an investigation?

    He isn’t going there to get dirt, he is going there to spread dirt, the investigation already found nothing and was closed, so rudi wants to spread some dirt to have it opened again.

    Do they really want to go there with the oligarchs, since trump has been money laundering for them for decades.

    Sure putin has something to do with this, someone needs to start recording trumps phone calls with Vlad.

      He already committed a crime, what are they going to do about it? He should be disbarred to start with.

    The catholics and christians are in heaven:

    all the priests are fucking little boys, the economy is booming as the earth prepares to kill us all off, and their misread Bible tells them to have guns and use them anytime.

    Nothing will ever change the unchangeable fact that HILLARY R CLINTON WON.

    One vote, one voice. F666 the electoral college.

    He’s cancelling the trip. He smelled a set-up. Such a clever fellow.

    LOL, he has already canceled the trip, so was it just another PR stunt? They managed to put the “word” out that Biden is mixed up in something illegal without any evidence.

    “After he left office, so many people who lived in the city felt he was exploiting 9/11 and he went from there.”

    “He’s become such a despicable figure, such a tragic old man doing anything to stay relevant,”
    “Out of all the president’s men, of all these swamp things, Rudy Giuliani stands out to me as the lowest of the low,”

    Old Rudy was on Fox News sporting a new dye job on his empty noggin. Bram Stoker probably envisioned a character just like Rudy Giuliani when he was describing Count Dracula – bats in the belfry.

      ” Vlad Dracul means “devil” and “dragon”. Both are used in Romanian language, with the latter meaning being a consequence of Vlad wearing an insignia of the dragon. He wore the insignia as a Knight of the Crusader Order of the Dragon. Vlad’s method of execution earned him the nickname “The Impaler”, or Tepes in Romanian.” “Vlad used his diplomacy to side himself with one or the other all the time, trying to play them against each other”
      “Vlad Dracula said “I have killed men and women, old and young. .. 23,884 Turks and Bulgarians without counting those whom we burned alive in their homes or whose heads were not chopped off by our soldiers”.
      The major consequence of his crusade for external independence and moral crusade for internal law was that his most loyal subjects drew tired of living constantly in fear. “
