(The Hill) — The forthcoming “Borat” sequel reportedly features Rudy Giuliani engaging in provocative behavior with a woman he’d been told was a reporter.

The adviser to President Trump appears to have unknowingly participated in “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” the comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen that is poised to be released Friday on Amazon Prime Video.

According to multiple reports, Giuliani sits down for an interview at a New York hotel with the character Tutar, Borat’s teenage daughter who’s posing as a TV journalist and was played by 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova.

The 76-year-old former New York mayor is heard complimenting the supposed reporter and following her to a bedroom, where eventually he stretches out on the bed.

Vanity Fair describes the scene captured on hidden cameras, saying of Giuliani, “His hand is in his pants. Watching it, your brain turns into an exclamation point.”

Cohen, as Borat, then reportedly runs into the hotel room sporting a bikini and exclaiming, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”

Giuliani did not respond to The Hill’s request for comment.

He told the New York Post in July that he had agreed to participate in what he believed was an interview about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response.

“This person comes in yelling and screaming,” Giuliani said of Cohen, “and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away.”

DOJ Investigating Potential White House ‘Bribery-For-Pardon’ Scheme

Published

By

(NBC News) — Federal investigators are looking into a potential “bribery-for-pardon” scheme involving presidential pardons, according to federal court documents unsealed by the chief judge for the federal court in Washington D.C.

The heavily redacted documents do not name the individuals involved or President Donald Trump. They also do not indicate if any White House officials had knowledge of the scheme.

The documents discuss whether prosecutors can review documents that may have been protected by attorney-client privilege and were seized as a result of a search warrant.

The opinion, entered by Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell on Aug. 28, is tied to an ongoing investigation that may involve at least two individuals who “acted as lobbyists to senior White House officials, without complying with the registration requirement of the Lobbying Disclosure Act… to secure ‘a pardon or reprieve of sentence for” one individual whose name is redacted.

The investigation also involves an alleged offer by another individual to “offer a substantial political contribution in exchange for a presidential pardon or reprieve of sentence.”

The judge said that the communications could be reviewed by investigators because the emails included someone who is not an attorney.

“This political strategy to obtain a presidential pardon was ‘parallel’ to and distinct from” one individual’s role as an attorney advocate for” another individual, the ruling said, redacting both names.

The White House declined to comment.

The documents are here.

President-Elect Joe Biden Suffers Hairline Fracture To Right Foot While Playing With Family Dog

(NBC News) — President-elect Joe Biden suffered hairline fractures in his right foot over the weekend in an injury that will likely require a walking boot for several weeks, his doctor said Sunday.

The fractures occurred while Biden was playing with Major, one of the Bidens’ two German shepherds, on Saturday.

Officials initially believed the president-elect twisted his ankle, and his personal physician, Kevin O’Connor, said later that Biden had sprained his right foot and X-rays did not appear to show “obvious” bone fractures.

But follow-up CT scans revealed small fractures to Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones in the mid-section of his right foot, said O’Connor, director of executive medicine at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates.

“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor said.

Reacting to video of Biden leaving an orthopedic office in Delaware on Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted, “Get well soon!”

By

(CNN) — Pope Francis has declared support for civil unions for same-sex couples for the first time, according to the Catholic News Agency.

The Pope made the historic remarks in a new documentary film, “Francesco,” which was released in Rome on Wednesday.

“Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it,” the Pope said in the film, the Catholic News Agency reported.”

“What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered,” the Pope said.

Francis has suggested in past interviews that he is not against civil unions, but this is the first time as Pope that he has directly come out in favor of them.

As Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Francis advocated for same-sex civil unions as an alternative when Argentina was discussing whether to legalize same-sex marriage.
