(TNS) Seeing the first three years of the Trump presidency play out reminds us of the heady first years of JFK’s administration.
Like Donald Trump, John F. Kennedy was a transformational figure who didn’t run for office to ‘go along with’ the deep state, the careerist bureaucrats, politicians and media. No, he ran because he truly wanted to change Washington, change the direction of American domestic and foreign policy, and bring us peace and prosperity.
The deep state existed back then as it exists now; outgoing President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of it (the “military-industrial complex”).
Eventually, Kennedy would have to shed advisers and officials that were picked by people within that deep state who did not care for the president’s policy directions or initiatives, especially in Cuba and Vietnam. Deep staters would routinely undermine JFK and ‘slow-walk’ his directives, choosing instead to implement their own agendas.
That has happened a lot to President Trump as we’ve seen since he took office. It’s taken him some time, but he seems now to have finally found a core group of loyalists and advisers who not only share his vision for America but are actually working hard to help him implement it.
One of those selections was Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, as his chief legal counsel and personal lawyer. Given what Trump had been through when he appointed Rudy, it was hard to know if the former federal prosecutor and mayor would be a shining star for Trump of just another political grifter dead set on implementing his own agenda.
Without question, Rudy is the former.
During an informal chat with reporters at President Trump’s New Year’s Eve celebration at Mar-a-Lago Tuesday night, Giuliani said he would be more than happy to testify on behalf of the president, under oath, at his Senate impeachment trial.
But more than that, he’d actually like to try the case which, to us, seems like a great idea given all of the investigative work he’s done on behalf of Trump regarding Ukraine and Democrat interference in the 2016 election.
Rudy Giuliani promised reporters some fireworks in 2020 by telling them he would testify in President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.
As Giuliani spoke to journalists outside of Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago, the president’s lawyer reaffirmed that “I would testify, I would do demonstrations, I’d give lectures, I’d give summations. Or, I do what I do best, I try the case.”
“I’d love to try the case,” Giuliani continued. When asked if that’s what he’s actually going to do, Giuliani answered: “I don’t know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case, but if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case.”
Giuliani’s involvement in Trump’s impeachment trial would almost certainly be an interesting development, due to the fact that his role in the Ukraine scandal has much to do with the reason why Trump faces the possibility of being removed from office. Not only did Gordon Sondland implicate Giuliani in the attempt to pressure Ukraine into investigating Trump’s political rivals, Giuliani has admitted to his part in the smear campaign against Marie Yovanovitch, and has made himself a major person of interest regarding the Trump administration’s Ukraine shadow foreign policy.
Well, what Democrats and their media allies believe they have on Giuliani — and what they actually have on him — are very probably two different things.
The impression we are being given is that Giuliani is just some rogue figure acting out his own personal vendetta on behalf of the president, without any guidance and all on his own. Only a moron would believe that.
Plus, the facts are that Democrats associated with the DNC and the Clinton campaign in 2016 did work with Ukrainian officials to meddle in the election and to the benefit of Hillary. And Giuliani has the documents proving it.

That’s been reported. Also, Sondland has testified, under oath, that Trump never sought a ‘quid pro quo’ arrangement from Ukraine and that, in fact, Trump said he “wanted nothing” from Kiev.
One of the president’s best allies and assets has turned out to be Rudy Giuliani. In a DC den infested with swamp rats, Trump needs all the friends he can get. Let Rudy handle this trial.
