Rudy Giuliani’s Security Detail in Ukraine Was Handled by Betsy DeVos’ Brother’s Controversial Company


The second time Donald Trump was impeached, it was his own fault. The former President’s lies about the election had stirred his supporters into a frenzy and they stormed the US Capitol.

The first time Trump was impeached, though, was kind of Rudy Giuliani’s fault. The bumbling lawyer had taken off to Ukraine and very openly tried to dig up dirt on Joe Biden‘s son, Hunter.

According to a new report from Buzzfeed, Giuliani wasn’t in the Ukraine alone. Along with him was a security detail from Erik Prince’s controversial company Blackwater.

Christopher Miller writes, “

Prince provided Giuliani with a personal bodyguard by the name of Thomas “Doc” Williams, who accompanied the then–personal attorney for Trump everywhere he went on the Eastern European trip.” read more

Trump Suggests Call He Made to Ukraine, Which Was Center of Impeachment Scandal, Predicted “Biden Corruption”

President Donald Trump was impeached, in part, for encouraging Ukrainian leadership to investigate President-elect Joe Biden for “political dirt” he could wield against his opponent. The president was ultimately acquitted by the Senate earlier this year, and he touted the acquittal as a sign of his innocence in the matter, which he has claimed, without evidence, was a Democratic plot to topple his presidency.

Earlier this morning, the president flaunted the call that made “quid pro quo” one of the oft-repeated phrases of the House’s impeachment investigation.

Now it turns out that my phone call to the President of Ukraine, which many, including me, have called ‘perfect,’ was even better than that,” the president wrote.

I predicted Biden corruption, said to call the A.G., who perhaps knew of the corruption during the impeachment hoax?” he added.

Trump Asked Pelosi “Are You Really Going to Impeach Me?” in Phone Call Last Year

2017 06 28T150151Z 1 LYNXMPED5R18T RTROPTP 3 USA TRUMP

Donald Trump phoned Nancy Pelosi and asked her if she really intended to impeach him for pressuring the Ukrainian government to find dirt on Joe Biden.

That’s according to a new book by Washington Post journalists Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan. Trump on Trial reveals the President called the Speaker of the House on 24 September, 2019 – just before the impeachment inquiry began.

The phone rang. Her assistant said the White House was calling. Hold for the president. At 8:16 a.m., Trump came on the line” the book recounts. read more

John Bolton’s Book Will Allege “Trump Misconduct with Other Countries” Beyond Ukraine


John Bolton’s upcoming book will accuse Donald Trump of misconduct with countries other than Ukraine, according to a new report. The President was impeached for his treatment of the Ukrainian government.

The former National Security Advisor’s book The Room Where It Happened will allege “Trump misconduct with other countries,”, Axios reports.

There are no details yet about what Bolton will claim, but if his accusations are similar to the President’s pressure campaign against Ukraine, they could be very serious.

The White House has tried to delay publication of the book, but it will be released on 23 June.

Part of the epilogue has also been shown to the press.

“As if impeachment were not enough, I also found myself confronting the daunting challenge of fighting an incumbent President determined to prevent publication of a book about my White House experiences,” Bolton writes.

“Trump behaved typically, directing the seizure and withholding of my advisors’ personal and other unclassified documents, despite numerous requests for their return; obstructing my Twitter account; and making outright threats of censorship.”

“His reaction thus ranged from the mean-spirited to the constitutionally impermissible,” his book says.

“My reaction … my response? Game on.”
