Rudy Giuliani cancels paid appearance at Kremlin event

Giuliani canceled a paid appearance at a Kremlin-backed event scheduled for next week in Armenia, reports the Washington Post:

Giuliani said Friday evening that he was no longer planning to attend the meeting. “I didn’t know Putin was going,” he said in a brief interview, adding in a text: “Discretion is the better part of valor.”

Giuliani’s decision to take part in the conference astounded national security experts. His appearance would have come days after the release of a whistleblower complaint accusing Trump and Giuliani of pressuring Ukrainian officials for damaging information about Democrats.

“I didn’t know Putin was going.” Shut up, moron. Shut up. Shut up.

He’s was obviously trying to score one of those sweet Ed Snowden/no extradition style Moscow hookups. Rudy needs an escape plan for when his friend gets kicked out of the WH and can’t pardon him.

Even if the event was on the up and up the optics of such a trip would be terrible right now. I would have cancelled too.

Are we at war with Russia? Didn’t the Mueller report already determine that there was no Russian election interference or collusion? Didn’t Obama say not a single vote was changed? What does it matter if he goes to Russia or not? I know that’s a lot of questions for you leftists but they deserve to be asked.
