OPINION| Lawrence David| Rudy Giuliani is a legendary crime fighter who has prosecuted what may have been the largest Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) case in U.S. history.
Giuliani doesn’t need to prove to anyone how fearless he is in the face of threats. However, Giuliani never faced an adversary that committed crimes on the scale he is now preparing to expose, or an adversary as powerful.
As a former U.S. prosecutor for the SDNY, Giuliani indicted 11 organized crime figures, including the heads of New York’s so-called “Five Families”, under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) on charges including extortion, labor racketeering, and murder for hire.
He’s now targeting corruption within the richest and most powerful organization anywhere on the planet – the Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it.
On Friday, Mr. Giuliani has sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham requesting Sen. Graham’s help in securing visas for his Ukrainian witnesses to come to the United States to testify.
My letter to @LindseyGrahamSC
These witnesses have direct (non-hearsay) evidence of Democrat criminal conspiracy with Ukrainians to prevent @realDonaldTrump from being President, and more.

As you read Rudy’s letter notice that Ambassador Bill Taylor, who testified against President Trump presenting only second hand accounts and his own suppositions, is accused of blocking visas for witnesses who claim to have first-hand knowledge of the corruption – three real whistleblowers.
You probably noticed that the real whistleblower, Rudy is being vilified by the media. That’s the same media that’s doing everything in its power to keep the identity of the cowardly whistleblower against President Trump secret.
“The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exists for only one reason, to protect itself.”
KYIV. Nov 20 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the “family” of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.
And then there’s this:

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt establishment with a new government, controlled by you the American people.
“The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exists for only one reason, to protect and enrich itself.
“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election for those who control the levers of power in Washington.
“And for the global special interests they partner with, these people that don’t have your good in mind, our campaign represents a true existential threat…
