Rudy Giuliani, previously the mayor of New York City and currently GOP President Donald Trump’s attorney, hinted that the pay-to-play operation allegedly run during former President Barack Obama’s Democratic administration is about to be exposed.
Several other key liberal leaders would be implicated by virtue of their involvement.
During an interview on “The Ingraham Angle” program which aired October 8, 2019, Giuliani and former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova had been chatting about the impeachment inquiry announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on September 24. Then, the Big Apple’s mayor offered an explanation behind the Democrat’s second witch-hunt against 2016’s winning candidate – the first having been the “inconclusive” Mueller report which failed to prove any Trump-Russia 2016 election tampering or collusion:
“For years, Obama had a pay for play operation in his administration and it’s disgusting and one of the reasons they’re fighting so hard – If Biden comes out, so does Clinton come out and about three others.”
Giuliani said that the corruption charges go to the highest levels of government:
“This goes right to the top of the Obama administration and the administration that says, ‘I didn’t have scandals’ will be the most scandal-ridden administration in our history. Obama didn’t care about ethics. He didn’t care otherwise it wouldn’t happen.”
Giuliani pointed the finger of blame at those closest to the Oval Office:
“A Vice President should have been stopped from doing this by a President who had the slightest bit of integrity. But a Chicago ‘pol’ like Obama – pay-for-play eight times – millions of dollars to your Vice President [Joe Biden] and hundreds of millions of dollars to your Secretary of State [Hillary Clinton]. They just bought the offices.”
“Crooks!” pronounced Giuliani.
diGenova smiled and added:
“It’s gonna be a bang-bang couple of weeks.”
President Trump’s attorney summed up his position on the October 13 edition of the Fox News show “Sunday Morning Futures” to host Maria Bartiromo:
“My role is very, very simple. I’m a lawyer defending a client.”
Giuliani has accused Hunter Biden, son of Obama’s VP, of acting improperly with the government of Ukraine. On September 23, Giuliani sent several tweets that Hunter Biden received $3 million of laundered money from Kiev, an arrangement overlooked by the Obama team.
One Twitter message read:
“NEW FACT: One $3million payment to Biden’s son from Ukraine to Latvia to Cyprus to US. When the Prosecutor asked Cyprus for the amount going to his son, he was told the US embassy (Obama’s) instructed them not to provide the amount. Prosecutor getting too close to son and Biden had him fired.”
Another tweet questioned:
“Did Obama know that his VP, the one he put in charge of giving billions to Ukraine, had a son who was making millions on the board of one of the most corrupt companies in Ukraine. Biden’s boss had stolen $5b from Ukraine and was a fugitive. Did Obama know? Did he approve?”
Giuliani also implicated a number of other key figures in his allegations:
“What I’m talking about, this, it’s Ukrainian collusion, which was large, significant, and proven with Hillary Clinton, with the DNC, a woman named Chalupa, with the ambassador, with an FBI agent who’s now been hired by George Soros who was funding a lot of it.”
The Democrats based their ongoing impeachment proceedings on the basis that Trump strong-armed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into digging up and dishing over political dirt on the Bidens. That accusation has proven false – and the opposite may be true: the Bidens conspired with Ukraine to launder money illegally.
Giuliani explained in a tweet what the Trump administration has in store for the Democrats:
“Now no mention of money or quid pro quo. So appropriate conduct. Now we must look at the Biden Family pattern of corruption of selling his public offices for 5 decades. Pattern of corruption enabled by Swamp.”
Giuliana has also accused Hunter Biden of receiving money from China to impress his dad and stated:
“The pattern is a pattern of pay for play. It includes something very similar to what happened to the Clinton Foundation. Which goes to the very core of what did Obama know, and when did he know it?”
On October 10, Giuliani supported claims made by Andriy Derkach, a member of the Ukrainian parliament, both alleging that Hunter Biden was paid $900,000 in lobbying fees by Burisma Holdings, a natural gas company in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden was employed by Burisma during his father’s tenure as the nation’s vice president. Hunter’s job was to spearhead the United States’ attempt to halt corruption in Ukraine, for which he was paid a monthly salary of $50,000. According to Derkach:
“Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the US-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners [an investment firm Hunter Biden founded with Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry]. The payment reference was payment for consultative services.”
