”Giuliani said he viewed his latest leak to the New York Post as an extension of his years-long efforts to work with Ukrainians to dig up dirt on the Bidens. But nearly all of his former Ukrainian associates have either been arrested and indicted by federal law enforcement or are no longer welcome in the U.S.”


Even money?

And these conspiracy pushing "patriots" think anything he says is gold.

Rudy Giuliani's propaganda conduit in Ukraine - Andrey Derkach, is a known Russian intelligence agent who graduated from the KGB Academy (Dzerzhinsky Higher School) in Moscow in 1993.

His PhD thesis addressed conducting meetings with secret agents. His father (Leonid Derkach) was involved in the 2000 murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze.

Derkach is thought to have been involved in the bloody assault by the security forces of Viktor Yanukovych on protesters in Kyiv on December 11, 2013.

On September 10, 2020, the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned Derkach "for attempting to influence the U.S. electoral process," while also alleging that Derkach "has been an active Russian agent for over a decade, maintaining close connections with the Russian Intelligence Services."

Giuliani also met in Kyiv with Andriy Telizhenko, another known Russian agent.

I couldn't find the '50-50' statement in the body of the article. But if he said something so stupid, that's even less reason to believe him, not that there's much reason to begin with.

About 3/4 down. Last sentence.


”Sure, the U.S. Treasury Department may have declared one of his former associates—Ukrainian parliamentarian Andrii Derkach, who worked with Giuliani on his hunt for dirt on the Bidens—to be an “active Russian agent.” But that’s some Deep State talk, he added. “The chance that Derkach is a Russian spy is no better than 50/50.”

Thanks. Well, he said it best. I guess we can now dismiss this thing.

When it comes to government and politicians, I don't care where information came from. I care if it is the truth and what that truth means.

It is well understood that Joe Biden ordered Democrats not to ever accept any facts, so facts literally and openly are the declared enemy of the Democratic Party. Therefore, exposing facts must be a criminal offense.

They believe what they want to believe. They're willing stooges. I figure they'll die in poverty at the rate they're going. A Republican and his money are soon parted. Just ask Rush.

A concern as to whether Giulliani was used as a conduit for Russian intelligence efforts is certainly worthwhile to investigate..
It is also worthwhile to point out that Biden doesn't dispute the basic accuracy of the story, or that the story is itself is supported by events we already know aretrue.

It of course also must be pointed out to all those on this thread who say that the story must be dismissed because there is a possibility that it was supplied by Russians:
We now know that the Mr. Steele received his information from a man whom was suspected by the FBI of being a Russian agent.
And we all know how that document was used by the Obama Admin in court and in intelligence assessments. And how it was used by many in political arguments.
On other words, those living in glass houses...

Rudy Colludey is the gift that keeps on giving...
It's a mystery to me that people as dumb as Rudy, and his client, can be such effective criminals. It really demonstrates the pay-to-play American justice system that they aren't both behind bars.

I was apprehensive about the decision to add Giuliani to the Trump reality show, but he's been pure gold. "...50/50 chance..." Man, you can't write this stuff!

They're only "effective" because Donald Trump is literally in charge of investigating himself.
