After it was reported last night that the whistleblower report documented Donald Trump’s failed attempt to get the president of Ukraine to help him promote a phony Joe Biden scandal, and thus alter the outcome of the 2020 election, Rudy Giuliani went on CNN and directly confessed to having been involved in the plot. Now a new layer to the bombshell reveals just how desperate Trump truly was to get Ukraine to work with Giuliani.
Donald Trump asked the president of Ukraine eight times in a row to work with Rudy Giuliani on the fake Biden scandal, according to someone familiar with the phone call, as reported today by the Wall Street Journal. This person does not recall Trump having promised anything in return, but that’s neither here nor there.
The mere specter of the President of the United States attempting to conspire with a foreign leader, to sabotage a U.S. election, is a serious felony. And by attempting to conspire with a foreign leader to rig his own reelection, Trump committed the ugliest crime against the United States in the nation’s history.
This also serves to demonstrate just how desperate Donald Trump is as his 2020 poll numbers get even worse, and how recklessly sloppy he’s become now that most of his 2016 henchmen are gone and Rudy Giuliani can’t get the job done by himself. Trump made the mistake of putting his own fingerprints on this treason scandal, and the whistleblower has documented those fingerprints. This also means Rudy is screwed beyond belief, as he’s at the center of a treason plot, and he’s not covered by any sort of executive privilege. Also, because this is a criminal plot between the two of them, Trump and Rudy aren’t covered by attorney-client privilege.
