CNN: Giuliani has openly coordinated with a known Russian agent to promote disinformation about the Bidens. The Washington Post reported Thursday the White House, and Trump personally, were warned in 2019 that Giuliani “was being used to feed Russian misinformation” to the President.

In a Fox News interview Friday, Giuliani said Trump never mentioned the warning to him and that he hasn’t been told by US intelligence officials that he is peddling Russian disinformation.
Several experts on foreign disinformation quickly warned that there were major red flags about the articles published by the New York Post, including Giuliani’s involvement, the changing stories about how the emails were obtained, and the digital metadata of images posted by the newspaper.
The US government announced last month that one of Giuliani’s Ukrainian allies is an “active Russian agent” who has targeted Western media with “false and unsubstantiated narratives” about alleged “corruption” by the Bidens.

In a piece for Vanity Fair published Thursday, she called on voters to end Trump’s “reign of terror” and “elect a compassionate and decent president.”
“I may not be able to change my father’s mind, but together, we can vote this toxic administration out of office,” Giuliani, who has publicly supported Democratic candidates in past presidential elections, wrote.
On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that the White House was warned that Rudy Giuliani “was being used to feed Russian misinformation” to the President.
👀 TRUMP was told by national security adviser O’BRIEN that Rudy Giuliani’s anti-Biden info should be considered contaminated by Russian disinformation, the Post reports.

“If being the daughter of a polarizing mayor who became the president’s personal bulldog has taught me anything, it is that corruption starts with ‘yes-men’ and women, the cronies who create an echo chamber of lies and subservience to maintain their proximity to power,” Caroline Giuliani wrote. “We’ve seen this ad nauseam with Trump and his cadre of high-level sycophants (the ones who weren’t convicted, anyway).”
She accused Trump “and his enablers” of using the presidency to “stoke the injustice that already permeated our society,” slammed his policies rolling back protections for the LGBTQ community, and criticized his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
