RUDY EXPOSED DONALD'S CORRUPTION:

Tabloid's Biden email episode illustrates Giuliani risk to Trump campaign (ERIC TUCKERm 10/17/20, Times of Israel)

That hasn't stopped the FBI from investigating whether the emails are part of a foreign influence operation. The emails surfaced as US officials have been warning that Russia, which backed Trump's 2016 campaign through hacking of Democratic emails and a covert social media campaign, is interfering again this year. The latest episode with Giuliani underscores the risk he poses to a White House that spent years confronted by a federal investigation into whether Trump associates had coordinated with Russia.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that intelligence agencies had warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of a Russian influence operation. The newspaper, citing four former officials, said that assessment was based on information including intercepted communications showing Giuliani had been in contact with people tied to Russian intelligence.

The newspaper said national security adviser Robert O'Brien had warned Trump that information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia, but that Trump brushed off the warning.
