Rudy Giuliani Cancels His Trip to Ukraine, Blaming Democrats’ ‘Spin’WASHINGTON — Facing withering attacks accusing him of seeking foreign assistance for President Trump’s re-election campaign, Rudolph W. Giuliani announced on Friday night that he had canceled a trip to Kiev in which he planned to push the incoming Ukrainian government to press ahead with investigations that he hoped would benefit Mr. Trump.
Mr. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, explained that he felt like he was being “set up,” and he blamed Democrats for trying to “spin” the trip.
“They say I was meddling in the election — ridiculous — but that’s their spin,” he said.
remember when back in the day we once called this guy "America's Mayor " ? He's not canceling his trip because of Democratic spin. He's canceling it because it went public; and , being a guy who was once an aggressive US Attorney , he knows how easy it would be to prosecute a case if he actually followed through on his publicly stated intentions. Its a good sign to see someone in Trump's orbit admittedly yield to public shaming.
