“President Donald Trump directed Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and two top State Department officials to deal with his private attorney Rudy Giuliani when the Ukrainian President sought to meet Trump, in a clear circumvention of official channels, according to two sources familiar with the conversation.
“Trump believed Ukraine was still rampantly corrupt and said that if President Volodymyr Zelensky wanted to meet with him, Giuliani would have to be convinced first, one source said. ‘If they can satisfy Rudy, they can satisfy the President,’ a person familiar with the meeting said.”
OK, there’s a couple of things going on there, 1) The whole Hugh Kraine scandal started WAY before Prznint Stupid decided to shake down President Zelensky on the phone to make up dirt on Joe Biden, and B) since when are Federal Gubmint employees instructed to work with any president’s personal attorney to do anything, let alone Prznint Stupid’s teevee lawyer? This is nuts, he thinks that the entire gubmint is his to grift and graft?
