When Rudy Giuliani went to Twitter over the weekend to whine about the Mueller investigation, he somehow, accidentally, created a website link in his post.
Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for https://t.co/8ZNrQ6X29a July he indicted the Russians who will never come here just before he left for Helsinki.Either could have been done earlier or later. Out of control!Supervision please?

And of course a prankster couldn't help but have some fun with it, creating this simple but spot-on message about Trump that people reading Giuliani's tweet would be linked to:
Via Daily Kos:
On a more serious note, it remains a mystery as to why Donald Trump would name Rudy Giuliani to a cybersecurity role, a job he is most assuredly unqualified to hold, especially in light of the serious, dangerous hacking efforts of Russia, China and other foreign agents. Roughly eight months after Trump named Giuliani to the job, the cyber security wonks at cyberscoop noted the advisory committee was doing nothing at all.
Giuliani’s so-called “cyber working group,” a vague advisory committee officially announced by Trump’s presidential transition team in early January, is rarely in contact with White House staff. It is absent and disconnected from significant decisions, said a U.S. official with knowledge of White House affairs who spoke to CyberScoop on condition of anonymity. The source, like others in this story, declined to speak on the record citing the potential for blowback from Giuliani’s allies in government.
“From what I saw, it didn’t exist,” said one former senior U.S. official.
Here was Rudy touting his role as the chief cyber connector between Silicon Valley and the White House back in January 2017.
