Mattis pressed on Bolton’s, Giuliani’s support for regime change in Iran

(10.5.2018) Mattis sidestepped questions from lawmakers Wednesday about whether Bolton’s and Giuliani’s vocal support for regime change in Iran has directly influenced the current US strategy, but offered little indication that Trump and his top advisers have reached a consensus on the administration’s long-term vision.

„Our problem with Iran is not with the Iranian people. It is with the regime. But I would let Mr. Bolton and Mr. Giuliani speak for themselves,“ Mattis said, adding that he would prefer not to comment on the specific instances in which both men have pushed for regime change in the media.

Does Giuliani Have a Plan, or Is This Just a Freakout?

Were they trying to get out ahead of a coming revelation? To set off a metaphorical smoke bomb that would distract from some other scandalous development? Or were they really as blundering and incompetent as they appeared?

I suspect the answer is a combination of the three.

The Latest: Trump says Giuliani needs to get facts straight

Trump chided Giuliani even as he insisted that “we’re not changing any stories” about the $130,000 settlement, which was paid to Daniels to keep her quiet about her allegations of an affair with Trump. Hours later, Giuliani backed away from his previous suggestion that the Oct. 27 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his campaign.

A day earlier, Giuliani had said on Fox News, “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton.”

Rudy Giuliani sets off a firestorm

University of Michigan Professor Barbara McQuade, a former prosecutor, said that Giuliani “may just be building the case against [Trump]. Even demanding that Comey make a public statement that Trump is not under investigation would itself potentially be obstruction of justice.” Likewise, New York Magazine observed “many pundits were quick to note that firing Comey because he wouldn’t say what Trump wanted about the Russia investigation, sounds like the very definition of obstruction of justice.”

Giuliani: Trump erstattete „Schweigegeld“ für Stormy Daniels an Anwalt

Die Zahlung ist vor allem deshalb brisant, weil es sich um eine Wahlkampfhilfe für Trump und damit um eine nicht deklarierte und somit illegale Wahlkampfspende gehandelt haben könnte. Cohen führte bisher stets an, das Geld aus eigener Tasche gezahlt zu haben, Trump beteuerte hingegen, nichts von der Zahlung gewusst zu haben.

Why Were Mueller’s Questions for Trump Leaked?
