Claire McCaskill Goes on a Tear Against Giuliani: A ‘Treasonous Traitor Clown’ Who ‘Played Into Putin’s Hand’


On Tuesday a U.S. intel report was released detailing attempts by other nations to influence the 2020 election. And there was one very notable passage in the ODNI report that read, “A key element of Moscow’s strategy this election cycle was its use of people linked to Russian intelligence to launder influence narratives including — misleading or unsubstantiated allegations against President Biden — through US media organizations, US officials, and prominent US individuals, some of whom were close to former President Trump and his administration.”

While it didn’t name any names, it’s likely referencing, in part, the shenanigans of Rudy Giuliani.

On MSNBC’s The 11th Hour Tuesday night, former Senator Claire McCaskill roasted Giuliani over the report and called him a “treasonous traitor clown.”

McCaskill told Brian Williams that “there was a time not too long ago when this would’ve been an earthquake” in Washington.

“Let’s just say what Rudy Giuliani is: he’s a treasonous traitor. I mean, he’s also a clown. But he’s a treasonous traitor clown,” she said.

“This is a guy who was working directly with our adversaries — another country — to influence our democracy. And he was a willing participant, as was Ron Johnson, as were many others that played into Putin’s hand in this bold and as-yet unpunished act of war against the strongest democracy in the world.”
