Hillary Clinton says Rudy Giuliani has no business being anywhere near the corridors of power.
Slinging mud at President Trump and his controversial personal lawyer, Clinton said the Ukraine scandal is laying bare the incompetence at the heart of Trump’s White House.
The former secretary of state told late night host Stephen Colbert that presidents and diplomats occasionally need to use back-channel envoys. But they need to be cut from better cloth than the ex-mayor.
“It is supposed to be carefully thought through,” Clinton said. "And from what we’ve seen on television, carefully thinking through is not one of Rudy’s strong points.”

Clinton said she’s impressed with the courage of the intelligence whistleblower and said Democrats had no choice but to launch the impeachment probe.
Colbert suggested that Clinton had an easier job than Trump’s acolytes, asking if she ever had to remind President Barack Obama that "you can’t extort foreign countries to get dirt on your political enemies.”
“That never happened,” Clinton said about her old boss.
