Rudy just confessed to MORE corruption, admits he led smear campaign to oust Ambassador Yovanovitch

Giuliani piles on the corruption

Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has once again confessed to corruption. This time, he admitted that he had a hand in the ousting of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

In a invterview with the New Yorker’s  Adam Entous, Giuliani laid it all out. The lawyer first became disgruntled with the Ambassador when she blocked Viktor Shokin’s visa. Giuliani was attempting to set up a meeting with the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine in New York. “I was kind of pissed off at her at that point,” Giuliani admits.

In January, Giuliani and his Ukrainian associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman got their hands on documents concerning Hunter Biden. However, Giuliani was worried that Ambassador Yovanovitch would be an obstacle to his ability to dig up dirt on Hunter.

“I believed that I needed Yovanovitch out of the way. She was going to make the investigations difficult for everybody.”

To facilitate his investigations, Giuliani began attacking the Ambassador’s integrity creating a “smear campaign” full of unfounded allegations which he sent to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

In her testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Yovanovitch told the lawmakers that she did “not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking” her. However, Trump had her removed from her post in May.

Even though Giuliani is freely admitting to more corruption, the President is still standing by his man. In a recent discussion with lawmakers and reporters, Trump called the lawyer a “very great crime fighter.”
