    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I got a cryptic email this morning from a friend who said that a friend of his, who I know (all these people must remain nameless) has been charged with some serious vetting of people. The administration, the Trump administration is vetting people as they would if they were considering somebody for cabinet secretary or similar position in the bureaucracy. My friend did not know who it was being vetted, and I had no idea, and I didn’t pursue it ’cause I knew that if they didn’t know they weren’t gonna… I didn’t want to hear...

    President Trump has floated the possibility of replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with his steadfast ally Rudy Giuliani to serve in the top Justice Department post, Axios reported Monday. Trump broached the idea in internal discussions about bringing in and surrounding himself with staunch supporters, sources within the West Wing told the news outlet. Before The New York Times interview last week, Trump had already expressed anger and frustration at Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, Axios reports. Trump, during the interview, opined that Sessions' decision to recuse himself was "unfair" to him and he would've likely picked...

    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...
  • 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...

    Rudolph W. Giuliani, a former New York mayor and an early backer of Donald Trump, has withdrawn his name for consideration for a Trump administration job. Giuliani was on the president-elect’s shortlist for secretary of state. In a statement, the Trump transition team said Giuliani informed Trump of his withdrawal at a Nov. 29 meeting. Giuliani delivered a letter to Trump, who declined to accept it at that meeting. On Friday, Giuliani again asked Trump to withdraw his name, and he accepted, according to a senior transition official. Giuliani said in a statement that the decision was “not about me.”...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a longtime Donald Trump ally, will not be serving in the president-elect’s administration. ADVERTISEMENT Giuliani has removed himself from consideration for any position in the new administration, the Trump transition team announced Friday. He was rumored to be in the mix to be secretary of State. "This is not about me; it is about what is best for the country and the new administration," Giuliani said in a statement. "Before I joined the campaign I was very involved and fulfilled by my work with my law firm and consulting firm, and I will...
  • Giuliani, Romney no longer top contenders for Secretary of State, sources say

    According to two people close to the transition, Trump is moving away from two of the front-runners for the job, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee. Giuliani's international business ties and public campaigning for the job are said to have rankled Trump. And while Trump has met twice with Romney, he's said to be aware of the risks of angering his supporters by tapping a Republican who was among his fiercest critics. Former CIA director David Petraeus is still in the mix, though both people close to the transition said Trump's prolonged...

    President-elect Donald Trump is down to his final four candidates in what has been a drama-filled search for his secretary of state. Republican National Committee communications director Sean Spicer told reporters during a Wednesday morning press call that Trump was down to four candidates for the administration post. Spicer said no additional appointments are expected this week. On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that the search was down to five candidates: 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Bob Corker, former CIA Director David Petraeus, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and retired Marine Corps Gen.

    The talk at Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving dinner at his Florida club was all about if he should pick Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani for secretary of state. The president-elect held court on Thursday at his Palm Beach, Fla., Mar-a-Lago club at a large table with family members including wife Melania and sons Eric and Barron. One witness told us Trump took a prime table next to the fireplace in the club’s living room, but spent a lot of time greeting members and asking who they think should be his top diplomat. The spy said, “Donald was walking around asking everybody...

    Last week, we reported on Morning Joe ripping the notion of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State, with Joe Scarborough saying “he’s temperamentally not qualified to be, and he’s not qualified to be it based on any experience or training or any contacts.” This morning, the show was still on its anti-Rudy rampage, with Scarborough stating: “it’s one of these things that everybody says off camera. I’m going to tell you it to you on camera . . . Even people close to Trump say Rudy Giuliani mentally is a few steps slower than he was several years ago.” View...

    Canada’s Liberal government said it will repeal a section of the criminal code that effectively bans anal intercourse for 16- and 17-year-olds, which is now viewed as infringing on the rights of gays and other sexual minorities. The measure was announced on Tuesday morning by Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, who said that it was about time to scrap the “discriminatory” law. “This section of the Criminal Code is discriminatory and the LGBTQ2 community has rightfully called for its repeal,” Wilson-Raybould said, as quoted by CBC News. “Our society has evolved over the last few decades and our criminal justice...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani emerged as the favorite to serve as secretary of state in Donald Trump's incoming administration, a senior Trump official said as the president-elect narrowed down his Cabinet picks.

Giuliani, a top Trump adviser, said Monday night at a Washington event sponsored by the Wall Street Journal that he "won't be attorney general" in Trump's administration - a job...

'The reality is they're a bunch of spoiled crybabies,' Giuliani, who may become Trump's attorney general, said this morning on 'Fox & Friends.' Giuliani was responding to reports coming from campuses that colleges are holding 'cry-ins,' bringing in therapy dogs and allowing students to play with Play-Doh or color with crayons.

    Despite the conciliatory tone struck in President-elect Donald Trump’s victory speech early Wednesday morning, the man who could run his Justice Department left the door wide open to prosecuting Hillary Clinton. Rudy Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor, New York City mayor and a name on Trump's short list for attorney general, said Wednesday on Fox News' “The O’Reilly Factor” that Clinton was a legitimate target to be investigated and disputed that any prosecution would be political “payback.” “There’s one tradition in America, right? Election is over. We forget about it. There is another tradition in America which is ‘equal justice...
