Guiliani keeps on giving

Judd Legum @JuddLegum 8m8 minutes ago
Giuliani returned to Fox News for 8 minutes (tonight)

It was a disaster again.
https://goo.gl/DCxsuR

TP:

In an interview that lasted less than 8 minutes, he made several significant errors.

Giuliani again addressed the Stormy Daniels case and the $130,000 hush money payment made by Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen to the adult film actress. If the money was intended to influence the campaign, it could violate federal law.

But Giuliani told Pirro that the donation would be legal “even if it was a campaign donation.” According to Giuliani, it was legal as a campaign donation because “the president reimbursed it fully.”

This, however, is false. While candidates can donate unlimited money to their own campaigns, all campaign donations, and loans, must be reported to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The failure to report the donation is a violation of federal law. The Stormy Daniels payment has never been reported to the FEC by Trump. If it was a campaign expense Trump broke the law.

At another point, Giuliani says the payment to Stormy Daniels was not a loan but an “expenditure,” which is the word the FEC uses to describe expenses related to a campaign...

1. I would send Victoria Toering out there for a double segment before sending out Ghouls. At least

 

she has her "wits" about her even if she is full of shit.

raving about something, or RUMP will feel like Rudy is getting too much attention...just wait...and RUMP's nature will resume its course...

3. Rudy steps on another rake.

If Rudy and Spanky had half a brain between them they'd know to just STFU. Instead, they go on TV and say dumb stuff for the consumption of the rubes who watch Fox News. However, Mueller's investigators watch this stuff, too.

Rudy and Spanky repeatedly violate the First Rule of Holes.

alcohol. This also includes t-rump and family.

liquid dinner before he went on Fux this week. At least he didn't lose his dentures like the moron did last winter.

His bathroom items includes Propecia for hair growth, Fixodent for dentures, Orange goop for skin color and who knows what else.

I really can't believe Trump was happy to "land" Ghouliani on his legal "team". You couldn't sit down and write anything as ludicrous as this.

24. I fully expect that, if he lasts at all, it will get "worse."

"Worse" being a worsening of their legal position. If he makes it to the summer, I predict an interview to end with him screeching and flinging poo.

33. Look, Rudy has many strengths. He's great at flacking for illegally leaking crooked crazy NY Feds,

top notch at convention bellowing and making nazi-promoting Fox appearances. Fantastic at wiping out the NY mob, just ask his buddy Felix Sater.

He does a wonderful impression of Nosferatu, and nobody does lipless sneering mutant better than him (Except Kate McK.)

But he just isn't much of a lawyer.

35. I can't figure out why trump would have hired this guy.

I've been thinking he might be going senile ever since the ridiculous clown show that was his presidential campaign 10 years ago. He doesn't seem to have any common sense about what he should and should not say in public.

I guess if trump wants nutty uncle Rudy making confessions for him on faux news, I can't complain.
