Giuliani Now Claims He Had No Official Role In Crafting Trump's Travel Ban

Source: Talking Points Memo


By ESME CRIBB Published MAY 24, 2017 10:36 AM

Former New York Mayor and Trump ally Rudy Giuliani denied on Monday that he had any official role in writing President Donald Trump’s executive order barring travelers from majority-Muslim countries.

“I have not served on any Trump administration Commission ‘relating to the so-called Muslim Ban Executive Orders,'” Giuliani wrote in an affidavit filed as part of an unrelated case. “For clarity, I have not participating in writing any of the Executive Orders on that subject issued by the Trump Administration.”

Giuliani and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey both submitted court papers as part of a case where they are representing a Turkish businessman charged with helping Iran evade U.S. sanctions.

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman questioned both to determine whether their involvement with the case is a conflict of interest, according to the New York Law Journal.
Giuliani’s effort to distance himself from Trump’s travel ban appears at odds with his claim in January that Trump asked him to find a way to “legally” enact the ban on Muslim immigration Trump repeatedly touted on the campaign trail.

1. I believe he previously said that he wrote a memo for Trump describing how..

to ban Muslims w/o people thinking that was his real intent. A memo. Not the executive order itself.

This smacks of the flim-flam they tried with 45's reveal of classified information to the Russkis i.e. they denied something that WaPo never said 45 had even done.

7. trumpies are big on non-denial denials.

if he had nothing to do with it, he would have said "i had nothing to do with it".

his words are carefully chosen to deny a few specific possible ways of participating that he didn't do while ignoring the ways of participating that he did do.

9. And now that the shoes are dropping, revealing lots of troubling details about tRump

and his Russian connections, the exodus of former tRump gang members begins. Just hide and watch as they tiptoe out of the room, hoping no one will see them moving as far away as they can. It really is funny especially when you compare their behavior now with how they acted last summer at the Republican Convention.

10. Notice the careful crafting of the not really denial.

He says he wasn't part of a commission, true. He says he didn't personally write the ban, true. He never says he didn't write a letter which served as the basis of the ban. Wonder if this is just an effort to put his entire participation with Drumpf to bed? He doesn't want a true scrutiny of his efforts with collusion, is my bet.

13. I'm thinking

Rudy is the nexus for a lot of it, he was very vocal in the summer months
last year, then by November he's been silent ever since.

15. I remember almost 50 years ago

Heading to our fishing camp in South Louisiana that had been closed up for weeks.

The minute my dad cut the lights on, it seemed in my young mind that hundreds of cockroaches scrambled willy nilly all over the place looking for a somewhere to hide.

That memory has stuck in my mind for years and the Trump administration reminds me of it daily.

Of course the first thing dad would do is set off a roach bomb while we launched the boat. I am hoping the IC is our nations trump bomb of truth shining a light on a very dark place.

And failing that the voters themselves.
