In a day of confusing statements, President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani first startled observers with a public claim of a previously unknown meeting involving top Trump associates and Kremlin-linked Russians — then recanted the claim and said the meeting “never happened.”

During a nearly 45-minute interview on CNN at 8 a.m., Giuliani said Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, who appears to have turned on his former boss, claims that top Trump officials met at Trump Tower to plan for a scheduled June 9, 2016 meeting days later with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer promising dirt on Trump’s campaign rival, Hillary Clinton.

In a subsequent interview four hours later — and after some Democrats said the earlier meeting amounted to new evidence of calculated collusion with Russia — Giuliani denied it ever took place, saying he was merely repeating a claim that multiple reporters had been asking him about.

It was the latest of several instances in which Giuliani — a former New York City mayor, federal prosecutor and presidential candidate — seemed to confuse or distort key facts about the Russia investigation and related legal headaches for his presidential client.

I think Giuliani is my new favorite Trump Keystone Kop. 

He would be like the firefighter who showed up and started spraying gasoline instead of water on the flames. 

“No idea why this thing keeps getting hotter, I am hosing it down as fast as I can.”

    “Manafort faces 18 criminal counts, which center on allegations that he hid much of the $60 million he earned in Ukraine in undisclosed overseas bank accounts and failed to pay taxes on it.

    Prosecutor Uzo Asonye, a member of Mueller’s team, said of Manafort: “A man in this courtroom believed the law did not apply to him. Not tax, not banking law.””
    “Prosecutors are seeking to provide details of Manafort’s work for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine, raising the possibility that new information about his Russian connections could emerge. Manafort has filed a motion to have details of that work excluded from trial.

    Prosecutors also accuse him of lying to U.S. banks to obtain real estate loans in a bid to maintain a lavish lifestyle after his client, former pro-Russia Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, fell from power in 2014 and the money stopped.”
    “A Manafort conviction would give momentum to Mueller, who has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people and three companies since the probe started 14 months ago. An acquittal would support efforts by Trump and his allies to portray the probe as a “witch hunt.” Trump denies any collusion with Russia, and on Tuesday tried to make the case publicly that collusion would not be a crime anyway.

    Prosecutors have said they will not present evidence of collusion at this trial. The Virginia trial will be followed by a second one in Washington in September in which Manafort is charged with money laundering, failing to register as a foreign agent and witness tampering.”

    OT? “Michael Avenatti will be allowed to continue his nearly ubiquitous cable TV appearances after a federal judge refused to “gag” the attorney battling Donald Trump on behalf of client Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels.”

    “DON MCGAHN HATES RUDY WITH INTENSITY OF 1,000 BURNING SUNS”: IS TRUMP READY TO COOK GIULIANI?
    Inside the West Wing, Giuliani’s recent wacko media appearances have attracted the wrong kind of notice. “Trump thinks he’s saying too much,” one Republican close to the White House told me.

    OT-FYI>”Four members of the Russian activist group Pussy Riot who disrupted the World Cup final in Moscow say they have been detained again, just as they walked free from prison after serving a 15-day sentence.”
    “A reporter from French news agency AFP saw Veronika Nikulshina, Olga Kuracheva and Olga Pakhtusova being forced into a police van seconds after their release.”
    “The match, between France and Croatia, was attended by world leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.
    Pussy Riot said their pitch invasion was a protest against Putin. They issued a list of political demands, including ending arrests at peaceful rallies in Russia.”

    Seriously, this bozo is better than SNL !! And they just caught him in another lie, the media only brought up the meeting AFTER he mentioned it. I saw video from FOX where they were asking him how come he is bringing up a meeting they didn’t ask about because no one knew about it.

    That is the problem with LIARS, they can’t keep track of the web of lies. I am surprised he hasn’t been disbarred for all his lying.

    The big question is why do they have Rudy go out to create a fog of conflicting statements. Giuliani gets as lost as Sarah Palins speaking!

      To create chaos or they are really stupid.
      Look at all the air time spent “clearing” up their lies,in the mean time the important stuff is glossed over.
