Remember back when Trump sent “investigators” to Hawaii to dig into Obama’s birth certificate? Remember when he announced his “investigators” had found some amazing information? Remember how we never heard from his “investigators”? Here we go again.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, said Tuesday that the president has asked him to brief the Justice Department and Republican senators on his findings from a recent trip to Ukraine ahead of a likely Senate impeachment trial.
“He wants me to do it,” Giuliani said in a brief interview. “I’m working on pulling it together and hope to have it done by the end of the week.”
However, it is unclear whether GOP senators or Justice Department officials want information from Giuliani, whose meetings in Europe last week with Ukrainian sources drew condemnation from Democratic lawmakers and winces even from some Republicans.
In a recent interview, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said he had no plans for Giuliani to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has launched an inquiry into former vice president Joe Biden and his communications with Ukrainian officials. Attorney General William P. Barr has counseled Trump in general terms that Giuliani has become a liability and a problem for the administration, as The Washington Post previously reported.
Two White House officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations said that Trump did not instruct Giuliani to go to Ukraine. The president’s advisers were displeased about the trip, although Trump has not expressed those concerns, they said.
Indeed, on Saturday, Trump appeared happy with his lawyer’s work, telling reporters that Giuliani was going to “make a report” to the attorney general and Congress.
“He says he has a lot of good information,” Trump said, adding, “I hear he has found plenty.”
It seems to me that Giuliani is chasing all of the wild geese that Trump’s befuddled, immature, conspiratorial mind believes must be chased.
I would LOVE to hear what insane bullshit Giuliani wants to share with the Justice Department and the Republican Senators, and hope that it somehow leaks out so that we can all enjoy the sideshow.
It may turn out that Rudy Giuliani will go down in history as the single greatest reason that Donald Trump was impeached.
