    Trump contradicts past denials, admits sending Giuliani to Ukraine

    Trump contradicts past denials, admits sending Giuliani to Ukraine

    Trump contradicts past denials, admits sending Giuliani to Ukraine - CNNPolitics

    Washington (CNN)Emboldened after his impeachment acquittal, President Donald Trump now openly admits to sending his attorney Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to find damaging information about his political opponents, even though he strongly denied it during the impeachment inquiry.

    The reversal came Thursday in a podcast interview Trump did with journalist Geraldo Rivera, who asked, "Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer? Are you sorry you did that?" Trump responded, "No, not at all," and praised Giuliani's role as a "crime fighter."

    "Here's my choice: I deal with the Comeys of the world, or I deal with Rudy," Trump said, referring to former FBI Director James Comey. Trump explained that he has "a very bad taste" of the US intelligence community, because of the Russia investigation, so he turned to Giuliani.

    Trump had previously denied that he sent Giuliani to Ukraine. Asked in November if he directed Giuliani to "do anything" in Ukraine, Trump said, "No, I didn't direct him," but went on to call Giuliani a "great corruption fighter."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    See what acquittal did for Trump? Now he doesn't have to pretend he didn't do the things he did that are wrong. Why should he? His GOP is behind him for better or worse and so is his base whether it's tearing this country apart or not. And, it's going to get worse, far worse.

    Nothing Burger.

    Why do Democrats think anyone cares?

    Those who must endlessly trash Trump are like the angry drunk looking for a bar fight - they're addicted to more than merely alcohol, but attention and adrenalin as well.

    I am and have been since 9.10.15 one of Trumps premier groupies, though I said then that I would never vote for him again, which I am now reconsidering.

    I am currently with Gabbard.

    She is a D.

    "Nothingburger," say people who flipped their **** when Obama ordered mustard or wore a tan suit or put his feet on a desk.

    First of all, the President can send just about anyone he wants as a personal envoy. There is no Constitutional prohibition on this capability.

    Second of all, his "admission" of sending Giuliani to Ukraine does not equate to "finding dirt on Biden" (finding damaging information about 'political opponents.').

    Trump has stated in this interview that he has no faith in the Intelligence community, and we know he has concerns about other Agencies, including the FBI.

    IMO he has good reason. Anyone who has been ignoring the non-stop efforts starting with the "Steel Dossier" hoax, followed by constant leaks, undermining, refusal to act on policy. etc., and of all sorts of "moles" in the government working against his policies will of course not understand Trump's preference for using "trusted" personnel.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
