CNN suffered a PR crisis a few months ago after making errors on the air. But slowly but surely, a few hard-nosed and skillful journalists are helping the network regain its street cred among political insiders. In this incredibly-overlooked clip from Memorial Day weekend, CNN’s Dana Bash presses Trump legal henchman Rudy Giuliani about the […]
The setting and mood, even the music, of the Saturday Night Live season finale cold open should be instantly familiar to Sopranos fans. Into a certain celebrated diner in northern New Jersey strolls the president of the United States (Alec Baldwin), who commandeers a booth where he is soon joined by his manic lawyer, Rudy Giuliani […]
Reprinted with permission from Alternet. Sarah Sanders on Thursday wouldn’t say whether she was kept in the dark about President Donald Trump’s hush money payment to former adult film star Stephanie Clifford, who is better known as Stormy Daniels. CNN reporter Jim Acosta probed the press secretary on the matter at the afternoon’s press briefing. […]
After several disastrous admissions during Sean Hannity’s program Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani kept the downward momentum going on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning. On Wednesday, Giuliani told Hannity that Trump knew about Michael Cohen’s payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, and that Cohen was personally reimbursed by Trump. Both Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders have denied that Trump knew about the payment […]
Rudy Giuliani told Fox News on Wednesday evening that President Trump had indeed reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen for $130,000 in hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels in the months before the 2016 presidential election. The former New York mayor, who recently joined Trump’s legal defense team, told host Sean Hannity that the […]
Having debased himself so thoroughly during the 2016 presidential campaign, Rudolph Giuliani has fallen far in public esteem since his heyday as “America’s Mayor,” the unquestionable hero of 9/11. And now that he has returned to the service of Donald Trump, with a pompous promise to “negotiate an end” to Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, […]
Last August, when the Obama administration returned $440 million from frozen Iranian bank accounts to Iran as part of the international deal to shutter Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Giuliani said, “I call that trading with the enemy.”

“She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all. The campaign was vicious,” Trump told the Times, adding that launching an investigation was “not something I feel very strongly about.”
This is hardly the first baseless conspiracy theory to bubble into official Trump Campaign rhetoric. And while Stephen Bannon, the Breitbart executive and current Trump campaign “CEO,” may be encouraging surrogates to turn up their attacks, the real blame lies with Trump confidant and “dirty trickster” Roger Stone.
In a speech introducing GOP nominee Donald Trump in Youngstown, Ohio Monday, former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani appeared to forget about the biggest terror attack that happened under his mayoral tenure: the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011.
The Trump campaign, which Giuliani frequently represents as a surrogate, has used the phrase in reference to “radical Islamic terrorism,” illegal immigration, crime rates in cities, the status of law enforcement in American culture, and one-off events like the murder of five Dallas police offices.
