Former Trump adviser slams Giuliani quoting debunked conspiracies


Tom Bossert briefing White House reporters in 2017

❝ President Donald Trump’s former homeland security adviser slammed the president’s lawyers and associates for continuing to tout debunked conspiracy theories in an effort to insulate the president and boost his political standing.

He specifically took aim at Trump and his longtime lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s repeated echoing of debunked conspiracy theories about the hack of the Democratic National Committee computer servers during the 2016 election campaign in an effort to curry favor for the president…

“It’s not only a conspiracy theory, it is completely debunked,” Bossert said. “I don’t want to be glib about this matter but last year, retired former Senator Judd Gregg wrote in The Hill [“How to Impeach Oneself”] and the third way was to hire Rudy Giuliani.”

Louts rely on crap conspiracy theories simply because a percentage of rote supporters who are too lazy to read up on reality, too hypocritical to confront the truth, love being fed lies they know their fellow nutballs will accept.

    Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has pushed for an additional debate to be scheduled earlier in September, before voters start sending mail-in ballots.

  3. Update says:

    President Trump, in August, promoted information that the U.S. government has increasingly connected to a Russian disinformation campaign in the 2020 election — after his personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, worked with the man promoting it. Now the U.S. government says explicitly that the man behind it is a Russian agent.
    The Treasury Department on Thursday identified Ukrainian politician Andrii Derkach as an “active Russian agent for over a decade” — a label that could lead to more direct penalties. It added that Derkach has “directly or indirectly engaged in, sponsored, concealed or otherwise been complicit in foreign interference in an attempt to undermine the upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential election.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/09/10/trump-team-welcomed-russian-disinformation-trump-administration-further-confirms/
    (August 17, 2020) “President Donald Trump has retweeted an audio recording that U.S. intelligence officials have described as being part of a Russian campaign to denigrate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
    …By amplifying the recording to his more than 85 million Twitter followers, Trump underscored the ease with which pro-Russian narratives can seep into American public discourse ahead of the 2020 election even after being flagged by intelligence officials as the product of a concerted Russian effort. Russia has also published disinformation under the guise of legitimate news stories, U.S. officials say, reflecting something of a shift in tactics from 2016, when Russia relied on a social media campaign to sow discord and orchestrated the release of stolen Democratic emails to boost Trump’s candidacy.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-retweets-purported-audio-of-biden-call-with-ukraine/2020/08/17/6f1130b4-e0aa-11ea-82d8-5e55d47e90ca_story.html
