1/2 Big deal being made about whether or not Rudy Giuliani was *warned* he was the target of a Russian op. But, what if Rudy was just working for the Russians? He did go after the NYC Italian mob hard back in the day, which made room for the Russians, yes? Anything to see here?
2/2 Interesting bit about the law firm Rudy Giuliani hired for his issues with Ukraine, a $70 million debt and a litigation funder, Virage Capital, who has been involved w/ shady lawyers. A few Russian ties for some of the players are laid out. sunlight-reports.com/who-has-the-go…

🚨Perhaps an Accused-Liar-as-Lawyer-for-the-Big-Lie-Liar Situation?
🚨Alleged text from Pierce at the pic
🚨See 2/4 below
