On the 19th of April 2018, I decided to enjoy a gorgeous day by visiting Epcot in Orlando, Florida with a friend. This is a time of the year when Epcot at Walt Disney has its International Flower and Garden Festival.

This is one of the garden displays.

I was home by 11:30 pm only to find out that there was some breaking news stories that I missed out on, like someone leaking the James Comey’s memos regarding conversations he had with the republican President Donald Trump and that Rudy Giuliani was joining the president’s legal team.

It is suspected that a republican US Congress representative leaked the former FBI Director Comey memos that were given to it by the US Department of Justice.

Here’s the rest of the story…

The “Committee To Investigate Russia” published the latest news pertaining to the FBI’s Trump-Russia Probe on April 19, 2018…

“The Associated Press has obtained 15 pages of memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote about his interactions with President Trump. Comey has explained he kept contemporaneous notes because he feared the president later would lie about their meetings.”

“On page 9, Comey recalled, “The President said ‘the hookers thing’ is nonsense but that Putin had told him ‘we have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.”

“The Department of Justice gave Congress the memos Thursday too.”

“According to The Washington Post, former NY City mayor Rudy Giuliani is joining President Trump’s legal team to deal with the Russia investigation.”

“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview.”

“Giuliani, who joins a legal team that has struggled to recruit new members to its ranks, said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks about joining the group of legal advisers. He said he would work alongside Trump’s current attorneys, Jay Sekulow and Ty Cobb, who focus on the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also said he will soon take a leave from his law firm, Greenberg Traurig.”

Giuliani and Trump spoke on Thursday (4/19/18) about legal strategy moving forward, along with Sekulow, who Giuliani described as a “good friend.” He added that he and Cobb spoke on Wednesday (4/18/18).

(…)

“Giuliani declined to say whether Trump has made a final decision on whether to sit for an interview with Mueller and his investigators.”

(…)

“Giuliani also declined to discuss whether Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who has been under fire from conservatives and oversees the Russia probe, could be fired by the president in the coming weeks.”

“I’m not involved in anything about those issues. My advice on Mueller has been this: He should be allowed to do his job.”

As per April 11, 2018 the Daily Beast by Michael Daly, President Trump’s newly appointed head of the (SDNY) US judicial offices of the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Breman happens to be  a protege of Rudy Giuliani. He has recused himself from taking any part in his office’s investigation of the president’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Mr. Beman’s handpicked second in command Robert Khuzami has been placed in charge of this probe. Both are long time republicans.

Excerpts:

“So, after interviewing him in person, Trump decided Berman was just the one to become the new interim United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.”

“Like Trump, Berman is the son of a real estate developer.”

“Like Trump, Berman graduated from Wharton School.”

“Like Trump, Berman once owned a New Jersey sports franchise, in his case a minor league hockey team in Trenton, the Titans.”

“Berman was a Republican and a managing shareholder at the law firm of Greenberg Traurig, home to Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump’s blindest supporters.”

“Berman had donated $5,400 to Trump’s campaign.”

  1. I’m so glad you got away to Disney World for a bit, if nothing else! You deserved it! One of these days, I’m coming down there to visit you, Don and Horty, and hopefully you will take me to Disney World! Meanwhile, back at the ranch … I didn’t read the memos tonight, for it is 3:00 a.m. and I have a terrible headache, but I do plan to in the morning. This is turning into a nightmare, and I am concerned about both Giuliani and the other two lawyers that were brought on board, what their function might be. I’ve never known of a president to need as many lawyers as Trump does! Geeee … I wonder why? Perhaps because he is the most dishonest prez we ever had??? Sorry … bad night and I am feeling snarky.

    Hugs, my dear friend!

    • Dear Jill,

      You are always welcome to come for a visit but avoid the summer if you can. It is not only hotter than Hades in the summer, the lines to get into any of the attractions at places like Disney are horrendous. We in Florida avoid this time to visit the different attractions just for that reason.

      Other than that point above, Florida makes for a great place to visit. Come on down!

      Who is Don?

      Rudy Giuliani claims the he is climbing aboard the president’s team to help mediate a conclusion to end this investigation into all things related to Michael Cohen and the FBI’s Trump Russia probe.

      I think he is in that “never-never land” along with the president. The head of the SDNY US judicial offices in Manhattan is a former partner to Giuliani’s law firm but he has recused himself. Mr. Giuliani knows quite a few folks who work at the SDNY but they are not about to tarnish their reputations and integrity for him.

      The joke about the other two attorneys is that they are Democrats!

      Hugs, Gronda

      • If I ever get a chance to come down there, it will likely be mid-to-late fall, for I rarely travel during the summer. It’s probably a pipe dream, but who knows? Maybe someday! Don is Don Massenzio, another fellow-blogger who I have followed and he has followed me almost as long as I’ve been blogging, and he lives in Florida, too, though I don’t recall quite where.

        I am thankful that you are keeping up with everything, for I am finding it difficult to keep up with so many strands to the web! Thank you for all you do, my friend, and for helping me stay somewhat on top of the stories!

        Hugs!!!

    • Dear Roger,

      The answer is, Who knows? The president acts as he sees fit in any given moment. I think we are on auto control. The republican President Donald Trump claims to be running the show which means he is now directing his own country-wide reality show where every day brings a new surprise and where saving his own hide, is his #1 priority.

      As far as Syria goes, Russia is running the show because that is what its President Vladimir Putin wants. He thinks more about pleasing Russia than he does about doing what’s right for the USA.

      Hugs, Gronda

  2. Gronda, I always enjoy Epcot. Glad you had a good time. I have a couple of thoughts here. Guiliani has a conflict of interest in my mind as he knew of the Comey announcement in late October before it was announced. He bragged on a talk show about it a couple of days before.

    I believe Cohen will be inducted in the near future for campaign finance fraud and maybe more. I also believe Jared Kushner will be indicted as well, but for using his position for money.

    My hope is these things will happen before Trump does something incredibly stupid and tries to fire Rosenstein and Moeller. My guess is he will do so. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      I couldn’t agree more. Now, that I am back to believing with 100% certainty that President Trump is a Russian asset living in the White House with GOP members in the US Congress knowing this, but still continuing to back him while covering for all his misdeeds, I can’t wait for this inevitable conclusion.

      Then I pray that folks like the president, the republican leaders in the US congress like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are no more than a speck of dust in the wind of US history.

      Hugs, Gronda
