Trump shrugged and said 'that's Rudy' when warned Giuliani was being targeted by Russian agents

with disinformation, report says

President Donald Trump responded to being told by officials that his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, was being used by Russian agents to spread disinformation by shrugging and saying "that's Rudy!", according to a Washington Post report Thursday.

The report details Giuliani's ties with Andriy Derkach, a pro-Russian Ukrainian politician who in August was listed as a Russian agent by the US Treasury and subjected to sanctions.

According to the Post, US intelligence established that Russian agents were pushing disinformation to Giuliani during a trip the former New York City mayor made to Ukraine last year.

The Post said the conclusion was based on intercepted messages, and that US security officials believe that the Russian assets sought to influence Trump through his attorney.
