Last night Rudy Giuliani went off the deep end on Twitter in an over-the-top and sustained manner the likes of which we hadn’t seen since his Ukraine scandal co-conspirators were first arrested. It was clear that something had sent Rudy completely over the edge. Now it turns out things just got even worse for him.
Right around the time Rudy Giuliani was finishing up his lengthy tantrum last night, CNN’s Manu Raju reported that the State Department has granted a Freedom of Information Act request for “multiple categories of Ukraine-related records, including any communications with Rudy Giuliani.” If that doesn’t sound like it’s good for Rudy, it isn’t.
Raju went on to spell out that this includes Rudy’s communications with Mike Pompeo and other State Department officials. That’s remarkable, considering the State Department is just giving these records away in a FIOA filing, instead of trying to fight it. We don’t believe for one minute that Pompeo and his State Department are going to turn over anything that’s incriminating to them. But it sure does sound like they’re going to turn over things that are incriminating to Rudy.
In other words, it looks like the State Department has decided to go ahead and scapegoat Rudy Giuliani in the hope of insulating itself. Oh, and it gets worse for Rudy. The State Department is also turning over records involving two more of Rudy’s henchmen, Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing, who are also believed to be under federal investigation.
