House Democrats Reportedly Want to Go After Rudy Giuliani

he Daily Beast reported on Friday that congressional Democrats are considering launching a probe into Trump lawyer and sycophant Rudy Giuliani and his work overseas, after Giuliani attempted to push an investigation into Joe Biden’s son and his work in the Ukraine.

According to the site, which cited a source with “direct knowledge,” a possible investigation would probably probe whether Giuliani’s work with foreign governments and officials “interfered or intersected with American foreign policy efforts.”

Giuliani, whose brain tragically died after he tried to shove some AirPods into his cerebellum, welcomed the news as yet another excuse for media attention. Per the Beast:

“If they want to come after me, I gladly accept it, because we could just make the Biden stuff bigger news,” Giuliani told The Daily Beast. “Do it! Give me a chance to give a couple speeches about it and hold a press conference. I’d love that… I think it’d be a fun fight. I’ll just compare it to all the things they’re not investigating… If they want, we can have a big fight over this.”

The former New York City mayor insisted there was “nothing illegal or unethical about” any of his overseas trips or foreign work in the Trump era, and accused Democrats on Capitol Hill of “trashing the Constitution” and potentially engaging in the “biggest misuse” of congressional power “since Joe McCarthy.”

I too would love to be investigated by Congress in order to score some political points for my boss. Unfortunately for Trump, Giuliani told the Washington Examiner yesterday that he was planning on leaving the Trump legal team after “cleanup” from the Mueller investigation was over. But he also said he would possibly stay if the president asked him and “if I’m needed,” so who the hell actually knows, or cares?

Speaking of Trump and the various investigations surrounding his administration: CNN reported yesterday that House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler is still fighting a losing battle against Nancy Pelosi (and also House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff) to open an impeachment inquiry. “He’s been very careful in advocating the view of the committee,” one unnamed member of Nadler’s committee told CNN. “But he doesn’t want to throw (Pelosi) under the bus.”

Just some really great stuff coming out of the American government today. Can’t wait to see what comes next!

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

How silly. Congress does not have the power or authority to do criminal investigations. Going after Giuliani is just a way of smearing Trump. And congress does not have the power or authority to smear people. This is just bad politics.

Congress can beat Trump on the important issues and that's where its time should be spent. There are very legitimate oversight problems with immigration for congress to focus on.

Biden does have a political problem with his actions in Ukraine in favor of his son. If Biden were to be the Demo nominee, this would be a campaign issue.
