Attorney General William Barr reportedly met with media mogul Rupert Murdoch on Wednesday night, The New York Times reports. The Trump official and the Fox News owner reportedly met at Murdoch’s home in New York. It’s unclear what they discussed, or if anyone else attended the meeting. Staffers for Barr and Murdoch declined to comment on the meeting. On Thursday, Trump criticized Fox News in a series of tweets. “From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days,” he wrote, lamenting that the network “doesn’t deliver for US anymore” and was “so different than it used to be.”
Who was the VSP who was vouching for Barr in the Atlantic in April? I’m not looking it up right now, but any liberal (or “liberal”) who has ever given anyone in this criminal operation the benefit of the doubt for a nanosecond shouldn’t be allowed outside without adult supervision.
You know who else was in Jerry Jones’s booth with St. Ellen of Perpetual Indulgences on Sunday? Yep, good ‘ol Rupert himself!
Very nice job bringing the story arcs together. I’m really starting to get back into this series.
. . . OK ok slow down! I promise to binge watch this whole thing eventually.
Last night, when Rudy Giuliani told me he couldn’t get together for an interview, his reason made sense: As with many nights of late, he was due to appear on Hannity. When I suggested this evening instead, his response was a bit more curious. We would have to aim for lunch, Giuliani told me, because he was planning to fly to Vienna, Austria, at night. He didn’t offer any details beyond that.
Giuliani called me at 6:22 p.m. last night—around the same time that two of his associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested at Dulles Airport while waiting to board an international flight with one-way tickets. As The Wall Street Journal reported this afternoon, the two men were bound for Vienna. The Florida businessmen, who are reported to have assisted Giuliani in his alleged efforts to investigate Joe Biden and his family ahead of the 2020 election, were charged with campaign-finance violations, with prosecutors alleging that they had conspired to funnel money from a Russian donor into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
