So apparently Trump’s lawyer and everyone’s favorite zombie mayor, Rudy Giuliani, is on the record as having tried to get the State Department to give a visa to Victor Shokin. Shokin, you may remember, was the top prosecutor in the Ukraine, and was removed for not being tough enough on corruption.
The visa was denied, basically because Shokin is a crooked asshole, and then Rudy appealed the decision to the White House. Apparently it was naptime or Big Mac time or something, because Trump didn’t step in to get Shokin a visa. Which, honestly, is surprising as hell.
