  • Get Rid Of Sessions: Giuliani For Attorney General – Lunch Alert!

    Synopsis of video: Trump must fire Sessions and replace him with Giuliani Here's why: 1. Sessions emasculated himself by stating, during his confirmation hearing, that he was recusing himself from the Russian investigation, and from investigating Clinton because he was "too partisan" in that matter. 2. Because of this, Sessions has no power. He can't protect Trump and perform the duties of his office. 3. Rudy will fight for Trump...he has creditbility and is popular. As a former prosecutor, Rudy can fight Mueller on even terms. 4. Trump needs to understand this is a political fight, not a judicial one....

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions “made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department” to recuse himself from federal probes involving Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Monday. Giuliani, a former prosecutor and current cybersecurity adviser to President Donald Trump, also swatted down reports that he could replace the attorney general, who Trump called "beleaguered” on Monday.

    Rudy Giuliani has worked with both Donald Trump and James Comey ... and if push comes to shove over who's telling the truth, Rudy's squarely in Trump's corner. The former NYC mayor arrived at LAX Sunday, and the photog grilled him hard ... grilled him about the alleged Comey memo, Lindsey Graham's statement the probe is now a criminal investigation, Trump's poll numbers ... the works. Giuliani didn't flinch ... he's as solid a Trump supporter as they come.

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is visiting the White House on Thursday but denied reports he's on the short list to replace FBI Director James Comey. “I’m not a candidate for FBI director,” he said in a New York Magazine story published Wednesday. “I am not. The president’s not gonna ask me, and I’m not gonna be FBI director.” He declined to say whether he is meeting personally with President Trump on Thursday, saying: “If I am, I wouldn’t say.” Giuliani added that he approves of Trump’s decision to fire Comey. “I think the president...

    In the aftermath of reports that Russian agents acting at the behest of strongman Vladimir Putin compromised the presidential election—and perhaps even President-elect Donald Trump himself—the incoming commander-in-chief announced he is turning to the man he passed over for the role of U.S. Secretary of State last year: former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. In a statement to the press this morning, the president-elect’s transition team announced that Giuliani would provide consultation on the matter of cyber security. Until recently, Giuliani served as head of the global cyber security practice at mega-firm Greenberg Traurig.

    Rudy Giuliani has found his place in the Trump administration. The former New York City mayor will be advising President-elect Donald Trump on cyber security issues, the presidential transition team announced Thursday. “Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be sharing his expertise and insight as a trusted friend concerning private sector cyber security problems and emerging solutions developing in the private sector,” the Trump team said in a press release. The soon-to-be president also plans to meet with corporate executives to understand their cyber challenges — as well as those that face the US government.

    America is already gearing up for one of the most exciting civic ceremonies in the world: the inauguration of our next president. But even as the eagerness for that day builds, we ought to stop and recognize the history unfolding before our eyes. By almost any measure, President-elect Donald J. Trump is leading one of the most extraordinary presidential transition periods of all time. One of President-elect Trump’s most historic characteristics is his complete outsider status. On the day President-elect Trump takes office, he will be the first individual ever to serve as president who did not have any previous...
  • Trump thought Giuliani ‘lacked stamina’ to be secretary of state

    12/14/2016 8:32:43 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 40 replies
    Donald Trump worried that Rudy Giuliani might lack the stamina to fulfill the duties of secretary of state, according to a report. Once a leading candidate to be America’s top diplomat, Giuliani fell out of favor, in part because Trump began to question the 72-year-old’s fitness, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cited an unnamed transition official. Giuliani strongly disagreed, telling the paper: “My stamina is unbelievable.” The former mayor, who was one of the billionaire’s fiercest loyalists on the campaign trail, has said he has so far passed on two cabinet postings in the Trump administration, without specifying...

    Minutes after news broke that he withdrew his name from consideration for Secretary of State, Rudy Giuliani called in to Fox News to speak to Neil Cavuto about his decision. Giuliani told Cavuto his desire to be in the Cabinet was great, but not “that great,” and he made his decision after seeing some of the other names of people on the list. He said he made the decision he would be better as an outside advisor, while mentioning that there were people in Team Trump who wanted to keep him in consideration. But as for who should get that...

    Truthfully, I know this is not the party line -- certainly not the line coming from Obama, because it's his job to act calm -- but I'm not a politician, and to me, what this feels like is if the South had won the Civil War. It took them 150 years, but they finally won. That's what this is. I don't care what people say. Yes, they lost their jobs and it's horrible. I wasn't alone in feeling this, but I would say [on the left] I was unusually sympathetic to these people. I was against NAFTA. They have absolutely...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Morning Joe spent its opening segment scalding the notion of either Rudy Giuliani or John Bolton as Secretary of State in the Trump administration. Giuliani was described as completely unqualified for the job, and someone who has personally profited off national security matters, a la the Clintons. Bolton was blasted as a “neo-con on steroids” whose views are out of sync with Trump’s, and is “donor-driven,” with Sheldon Adelson’s name being dropped. So who’s Scarborough and company’s pick for SecState? Joe and Mike Barnicle called the selection of Tennessee Senator Bob Corker a “no-brainer.” Maybe so, but not necessarily in...

    Rival factions of Republicans are locked in an increasingly caustic and public battle to influence President-elect Donald J. Trump’s choice for secretary of state, leaving a prominent hole in an otherwise quickly formed national security team that is unlikely to be filled until next week at the earliest. The debate inside Mr. Trump’s wide circle of formal and informal advisers — pitting supporters of one leading contender, Mitt Romney, against those of another, Rudolph W. Giuliani — has led to the kind of dramatic airing of differences that characterized Mr. Trump’s unconventional and often squabbling campaign team. And it traces...

    DONALD Trump's closest politial ally has rubbished Russia's claims of military might as he angles for a top job in the Republican new administration. Former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani said the Kremlin's aggressive rhetoric was all bluster, suggesting Moscow did not pose a threat to the West. Mr Giuliani, who is being lined up for the job of Secretary of State - America's equivalent of foreign secretary - blasted: "Russia thinks it's a military competitor - it really isn't." But the senior Republican also attacked Barack Obama for allowing Vladimir Putin to seize on instability around the world...

    Senator Rand Paul reiterated his opposition to both former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and former UN ambassador John Bolton as secretary of state in an interview with the Guardian on Tuesday. The interview follows an op-ed in Rare, an online conservative publication, where Paul condemned Bolton as “out of touch”. The Kentucky senator grounded his opposition in the importance that Donald Trump “pick people who agree with his foreign policy”. Trump repeatedly argued on the campaign trail that the Iraq war was a mistake and condemned what he saw as an overly interventionist foreign policy from Democratic rival Hillary...
