Hannity previews Trump’s final defense: So what if he’s guilty?

  Hannity previews Trump’s final defense: So what if he’s guilty? The Fox host and his guests agree: So what if Trump did what Democrats say he did?It has long been obvious that Republicans would ultimately converge on this final defense of President Trump: Even if he did everything he has been accused of doing, and perhaps a lot more that we don’t know about, it’s absolutely fine! 

Rudy Giuliani , the personal attorney for US President Donald Trump, threatened Thursday to go public with information that would expose corruption by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden following his offer to testify during the impeachment trial.

In an appearance on Fox News ' “Justice with Judge Jeanine ” -- in which Giuliani also addressed Special Counsel Robert Mueller' s investigation into possible Trump ties to Russia -- the former mayor of New York City told host Jeanine Pirro that he was “still learning” the facts about the payment.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro repeatedly pressed President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, questioning why he has not yet revealed "evidence" he has claimed to have showing alleged "corruption" by former Vice President Joe Biden.

Although Pirro has been one of Trump's staunchest defenders, regularly attacking Democrats and dismissing their criticism of the president, the controversial opinion show host appeared on Saturday evening to question whether Giuliani actually had the evidence he has claimed to have. In response, Giuliani insisted he'd already revealed what he knew of Biden's alleged "corruption."

"I don't know the guy," Pence said last week, CNN reported, calling Parnas's claims "completely false.

Giuliani also claimed that the story about White House counsel Don McGahn cooperating with special prosecutor Robert Mueller’ s team was planted in an effort to pressure Trump. “I think the best analysis would be that the Mueller team is panicking—they know they don’t have a case.

"Joe Biden has been a big crook for most of his career," Giuliani claimed during an interview on Justice with Judge Jeanine. "Every time Biden was a point man, you know what happened? The Biden family made millions and America got sold out."

Cutting him off, Pirro said: "Ok, and we need to have the evidence. Do you have the evidence of that?" she asked.

"I've got the evidence. I've been showing them the evidence for months," Giuliani insisted.

But Pirro seemed skeptical, asking: "Can we see the evidence Rudy, can we see it?"

Giuliani again insisted that he'd already revealed the "evidence," saying he'd put it out there "in April" and also "in March." He claimed it was "ignored." The lawyer said it had even been played on Fox News, but Pirro seemed to disagree.

  'I was misled by him': Guiliani writes off Parnas claims about Ukraine work as 'stupid lies' President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani dismissed claims made by his indicted former business partner Lev Parnas, claiming they are fictional. © Provided by MediaDC: Washington Newspaper Publishing Company, Inc.Giuliani, 75, responded to Parnas's claims about their work to uncover evidence of corruption by 2020 Democratic front-runner former Vice President Joe Biden in Ukraine during a Monday night interview with Fox News's Laura Ingraham. He was asked questions about specific accusations thrown out by Parnas during an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last week.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham revealed exclusive details regarding the Obama administration’s knowledge of the brewing Biden family scandal, which centers on Hunter Biden ’ s past board membership on the gas company Burisma Holdings, and Joe Biden ’ s efforts to coerce the firing of a

Whoopi Goldberg and Jeanine Pirro didn't see eye to eye on Thursday' s episode of "The View.".

Again, Pirro cut off Trump's lawyer: "Alright, you know what Rudy, I'd love you to send it to me and I'm gonna lay out."

Giuliani then tried to promote coverage of the alleged Biden conspiracy by the far-right One America News Network (OANN). Pirro, with a laugh, interjected again.

"No, send it to me," she said, as Giuliani continued to promote a podcast he will do with OANN about the allegations.

Giuliani's and Trump's primary piece of "evidence," which they claim points to Biden's corruption is a video of the current Democratic presidential candidate talking about how he convinced the Ukrainian government to fire former prosecutor general Viktor Shokin. While Trump and his supporters have argued that this was to benefit the business dealings of Biden's son Hunter, who sat on the board of Burisma holdings, the facts tell a different story.

Shokin was widely seen – by the U.S. government, European leaders and anti-corruption groups in Ukraine – to be obstructing numerous corruption investigations in Ukraine. In fact, some analysts have suggested that Shokin's removal actually made it more likely that investigations into alleged corruption at Burisma would move forward, not less likely as Giuliani and Trump have claimed.

Rudy Giuliani Defends Ukraine Actions, Claims Witnesses Will Say The FBI and DOJ Were 'Being Controlled by Hillary Clinton Partisans'

  Rudy Giuliani Defends Ukraine Actions, Claims Witnesses Will Say The FBI and DOJ Were 'Being Controlled by Hillary Clinton Partisans' Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani defended his actions investigating Joe Biden in Ukraine.During a Friday appearance on Fox & Friends, President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani stood by his actions in Ukraine and said witnesses will say the FBI and Department of Justice were "controlled by Hillary Clinton partisans.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro got a public endorsement from President Donald Trump Sunday morning after the Justice with Judge Jeanine host claimed the president had "I'm not even going to ask you of the report because we're going to waste time," Pirro began her conversation with Giuliani .

Giuliani on “ Fox & Friends” Friday teased that he would reveal evidence of “shocking new crimes” Giuliani for months has focused on the circumstances surrounding Hunter Biden ' s past board The former vice president successfully pushed for Shokin’s removal due to apparent corruption concerns

Ethics experts have noted that the optics of Biden's son serving on the board of a prominent Ukrainian company while his father was former President Barack Obama's point man on dealing with the country looked poor. However, there is no evidence that the former vice president's actions in Ukraine veered from official U.S. government policy toward the country to benefit his family.

Giuliani has repeatedly told reporters and television hosts that he has significant evidence laying out the Biden family's corruption. Despite those claims, he has primarily just revealed claims by Shokin, who was widely viewed as corrupt himself.

Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce investigations into the unfounded claims against the Bidens was at the center of the impeachment inquiry led by House Democrats last year. That investigation led to Trump becoming only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. Now the impeachment process has moved to the Senate, where the president is standing trial for alleged "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress."
