Giuliani: Asking Ukrainian Prosecutor For Money Wasn’t ‘Strict Conflict,’ ‘Got Paid ZERO’
Earlier this year, Trump’s personal attorney negotiated contracts with Ukrainian officials worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to new reports.

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, pursued contracts with Ukrainian officials worth hundreds of thousands of dollars while simultaneously seeking political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden for Trump’s benefit, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Wednesday.

As he waged a public campaign accusing Biden of corruption in Ukraine, Giuliani earlier this year was privately negotiating business deals with Yuri Lutsenko ― Ukraine’s top prosecutor at the time ― and the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice, according to documents obtained by the Post and the Times.

Ukrainian Investigators Probing Ex-Prosecutor Lutsenko For Abuse Of Power


Quote:
KYIV -- Anti-corruption investigators have opened a probe of former Prosecutor-General Yuriy Lutsenko, who is tied to the spiraling scandal over whether U.S. President Donald Trump sought to pressure Ukraine to investigate one of his chief political rivals.

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) said in a statement on October 17 that the investigation was opened in mid-August, prior to Lutsenko's resignation, and was made in response to a Kyiv court ruling ordering the probe.

The probe, which relates to allegations of abuse of power by Lutsenko, does not appear to have a direct link to the larger, U.S.-focused scandal that Lutsenko is connected to.

Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing, a Washington husband-and-wife legal team with ties to Trump, were also listed on some of the documents as people who would receive payment from the Ukrainian government.

One such document ― a draft of a legal agreement from mid-February ― called for Lutsenko to pay Giuliani Partners $200,000 to retain Giuliani, diGenova and Toensing. Per the agreement, Giuliani would help Lutsenko recover money he believed had been stolen from the Ukrainian government.

Giuliani on Wednesday defended the negotiations in a series of text messages.

“It was not a strict conflict but it could be too much for me to do,” Giuliani told HuffPost about his apparent decision not to finalize the contracts.

“Got paid ZERO,” he added.

As the Times noted, Giuliani met with Lutsenko in New York weeks earlier to discuss Biden, the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, and Biden’s son Hunter, who was a member of Burisma’s board for several years until April.

Helping Trump make the world safe for money launderers and other forms of corruption.

When Rudolph W. Giuliani went to Madrid in August to confer with a top aide to the Ukrainian president and press for political investigations sought by President Trump, he also met with a previously unidentified client with very different interests.
While in Spain, Giuliani stayed at a historic estate belonging to Venezuelan energy executive Alejandro Betancourt López, who had hired Trump’s personal attorney to help him contend with a Justice Department investigation of alleged money laundering and bribery, according to people familiar with the situation.
A month later, Giuliani was one of several lawyers representing Betancourt in Washington. The lawyers met with the chief of the Justice Department’s criminal division and other government attorneys to argue that the wealthy Venezuelan should not face criminal charges as part of a $1.2 billion money-laundering case filed in Florida last year, said the people, who, like others in this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

And--there's more. Accuse others of the crimes you are committing.

Naftogaz senior executive Andrew Favorov, an American citizen, said that during a meeting with two associates of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the men tried to bring him on to replace the chief executive of the Ukrainian gas company and suggested that their relationship with Giuliani and the U.S. government would aid negotiations over altering the company's management.

A Great Big Gift Not on Trump's Disclosure Form: Giuliani's Legal Advice

Quote:
For the past 20 months, President Donald Trump has received free personal legal services from one of America’s highest-paid lawyers, who has traveled around the country and across the ocean to defend him in the special counsel’s inquiry and press Ukraine to investigate a political rival and unfounded conspiracy theories.

The lawyer, of course, is Rudy Giuliani, but Trump did not mention Giuliani or his unpaid labor on the annual financial disclosure he filed in May, which requires that the value and source of gifts — including free legal work — be publicly listed.

That requirement is cut and dried, said Kathleen Clark, a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis. She cited guidance from the Office of Government Ethics, issued in November 2017, that states federal officials must disclose “gifts of legal defenses — in kind or by payment of the fees.”

“The purpose is to ensure the public has an opportunity to see whether there is any kind of corrupting influence,” said Clark, who has written on ethics issues involving government employees in need of lawyers.

During the presidency of Bill Clinton, for example, congressional Republicans and others suggested that some donors to Clinton’s legal defense funds were currying favor. The names of the donors and the amounts of their gifts were disclosed.

For his paying clients, Giuliani has been able to provide access to senior officials across the Trump administration.

And to think he was once America's mayor, now he spends so much money that he is just Trump's pimp.

Quote:
Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney to President Trump, has admitted that he saw former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch as an obstacle in his plan to find dirt on his client’s potential rival—former Vice President Joe Biden—in advance of the 2020 election, he said in an interview with The New Yorker. “I believed that I needed Yovanovitch out of the way,” Giuliani is reported to have said, telling the magazine that he compiled a dossier on the former VP and his son Hunter and Yovanovitch herself. “She was going to make the investigations difficult for everybody.” Yovanovitch testified before Congress during the impeachment hearings, telling officials that Trump directly pressured the State Department to remove her in May after she suffered months of criticism by Giuliani, who accused her of protecting Biden’s interests. Yovanovitch has said her removal was “based, as far as I can tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives.”

When you go through hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and face a divorce, and appear to have lost your marbles, you will pander to Trump's conspiracy fears for gold. From the Post, Rudy's latest bit of tall tales.

Quote:
Giuliani’s three main sources in the documentary are former Ukrainian prosecutor generals Viktor Shokin and Yuri Lutsenko and Ukrainian member of parliament Andriy Derkach. Shokin is the former prosecutor who allegedly died twice without anyone in Ukraine noticing. For anyone who was reporting on Ukraine when Shokin was prosecutor general, Giuliani’s claim that Shokin was an anti-corruption crusader is ridiculous. Civil society groups tried for months to have him removed because of his failure to go after corrupt officials. Then-President Petro Poroshenko fought to keep him because in Ukraine prosecution is politicized, and you want a loyal prosecutor who can bring charges against your enemies that you can use as leverage in political negotiations. What finally stopped the deadlock was Biden threatening to block aid.

The second prosecutor is Yuriy Lutsenko, known as Ukraine’s first prosecutor general without a law degree. He has a record of making baseless statements to grab headlines and attention; if the backlash in response to his provocative statements starts to get too big, he then rolls them back. This is exactly what happened when he falsely claimed that former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch gave him a “do not prosecute” list. Now in the documentary he is making the same claim again.

Derkach is a member of parliament formerly of the party of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych, who is now in exile in Russia after losing power in a popular uprising five years ago. Derkach, a graduate of the KGB academy in Moscow, is known for peddling conspiracy theories.

Art, none of these people are credible.

And what about all those statements and legal documents Giuliani has been collecting? I’ve seen a lot of others like them during my nearly six years in Ukraine, handed out by corrupt officials trying to dismiss allegations against them. There are rarely any repercussions for even the most outlandish of statements, and an official government letter denying or alleging wrongdoing can be either forged or obtained from a prosecutor who has nothing to do with the case.

Why are you saying his sister one of Epstein's madams? Or did his father let Epstein teach a school without a degree? Or was his best friend also Epstien? Or did he give Epstien an illegal deal to not go to jail for life for raping over 200 children??


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Durham_(lawyer)

Quote:
The day Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz released his report on the 2016 FBI Crossfire Hurricane investigation, which found the investigation was properly predicated and debunked a number of conspiracy theories regarding its origins, Durham issued a statement saying, "we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened."[27][28] Many observers inside and outside the Justice Department, including the inspector general, expressed surprise that Durham would issue such a statement, as federal investigators typically do not publicly comment on their ongoing investigations.[29] Barr also released a statement challenging the findings of the report.[30] Horowitz later testified to the Senate that prior to release of the report he had asked Durham for any information he had that might change the report's findings, but "none of the discussions changed our findings."[31] The Washington Post reported that Durham could not provide evidence of any setup by American intelligence.[32]

House releases new letter from Rudy Giuliani to Ukrainian president


Quote:
Last May, Rudy Giuliani wrote a letter to the newly elected Ukrainan President Zelenskiy in which he takes an incredibly disingenuous, frontal approach to requesting a meeting and assures Zelenskiy how completely normal it is that he is doing what he is doing.
