“…what concerned me most about the small lie was the danger of it becoming a habit. I’ve seen many times over the years how liars get so good at lying, they lose the ability to distinguish between what’s true and what’s not. They surround themselves with other liars. The circle becomes closer and smaller, with those unwilling to surrender their moral compasses pushed out and those willing to tolerate deceit brought closer to the center of power. Perks and access are given to those willing to lie and tolerate lies. This creates a culture, which becomes an entire way of life. The easy, casual lies – those are a very dangerous thing. They open up the path to the bigger lies, in more important places, where the consequences aren’t so harmless.” ~ James Comey, A Higher Loyalty
Rudy Giuliani stepping in to become a key player for Trump, when Trump’s the most desperate he’s ever been in his life, this because the vast majority of his inner circle have either fled or been removed, compels the public to draw some conclusions.
First, based on Comey’s insights above, and Giuliani’s actions the past two weeks, it’s clear that Giuliani has been accepted into Trump’s tight inner circle, implying that Giuliani is “willing to surrender his moral compass…and tolerate deceit.”
Second, after reading Rudy Giuliani’s statement on Wednesday April 25, 2018 that Mueller won’t find a “stitch of evidence” that Trump colluded with Russia, we’re left to interpret what Giuliani means by this (in light of the fact that there have been so many collusion dots already divulged to the public, that when connected, clearly indicate large swaths of collusion smoke, beneath which is seemingly an extensive collusion fire). Additionally, there are sealed indictments, guilty pleas, cooperating witnesses. So for Giuliani to state unequivocally that there’s not a “stitch of evidence” that Trump colluded, when we already see a wide trail of collusion by the Trump Campaign, we’re left to interpret Giuliani’s claim:
- Giuliani is lying (which is entirely possible based on Comey’s insights)
- The collusion was carried out by the Trump Campaign and close Trump allies, rather than Trump himself, so no Trump finger prints on the evidence; perhaps the game plan was that Trump would pardon everyone so no worries about all the crimes they’d have to commit, the “perks and access” would be worth it, and they wouldn’t do any jail time because of his pardon power
- the word “stitch” means something to Giuliani; hmm… can we interpret it to mean that there’s not an inch of evidence, but rather 100 miles of evidence? I can picture a former prosecutor differentiating the amount of evidence in this way, so then sure, Giuliani would be telling the truth
Or perhaps Giuliani’s raging assertion that there’s not a “stitch of evidence” of Russia collusion and therefore Mueller’s investigation is a “disgrace,” is merely an attempt to hide Giuliano’s own ties to Russia collusion. After all, according to Grant Stern, a Miami columnist and radio broadcaster, Giuliani is closely associated with Sergey Lavrov, and “the Giuliani/Lavrov relationship represents the highest level link between Trump Campaign’s top surrogate and Russian President Vladimir Putin.” Giuliani is the top surrogate.
Based on this reality, we’re left to interpret that Giuliani coming in as “Trump’s attorney” for the Russia collusion investigation is actually a ruse. It’s highly probable that Giuliani was called in to be interviewed by Mueller because Giuliani is a subject, or even a target, in the investigation. Giuliani crafted this cover so the media and public wouldn’t know that he’s a subject / or target in the investigation.
We should learn more in a few days since Giuliani wants the Mueller investigation closed and put his reputation on the line by claiming he could make this happen in a “week or two.” As top Russian collusion surrogate, Giuliani’s interview with mueller indicates Mueller’s reached the top of the collusion food chain and he may actually be able to wind things up shortly.
More indictments soon, it seems.
