Rudy Giuliani denied allegations Wednesday night that he was touching his genitals in the new Borat movie scheduled for release on Friday. Giuliani claims he was tucking in his shirt after taking off recording gear saying “at no time, before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”
Giuliani also tweeted that the “NY Post today reports ‘it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing.”
“As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police, which has been noted in THR article on July 8th,” he tweeted.
The Guardian is reporting that Rudy Guiliani, the former Mayor of New York City and personal lawyer to the President, appeared in Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Borat movie in a scene where he allegedly had his hand down his pants.
In the film, Guiliani was reportedly brought into a hotel room with the actress playing Borat’s daughter, who was posing as a conservative journalist. Giuliani then laid back on the bed, where he allegedly proceeded to put his hand down his pants before Borat, the character played by Cohen, quickly bursted in to save his pretend 15-year-old daughter.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
