This is . . . not good.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, accidentally butt-dialed an NBC reporter — twice — and left 3-minute voice mails where he is overheard talking about Bahrain, Ukraine and Hunter Biden:

HBO’s “Veep” is a documentary:

There doesn’t seem to be anything incriminating on the recording, but at one point Rudy says “the problem is we need money”:

Just “a few hundred thousand”:

Luckily for Giuliani, the mailbox had a 3-minute limit:

One call came in when the reporter was asleep:

The call came in at 11:07 p.m. and went to voicemail; the reporter was asleep.

The other was when the reporter was at a family birthday party:

The late-night Giuliani butt dial came 18 days after a midafternoon Giuliani butt dial.

The first one happened when the NBC News reporter was at a fifth-birthday party for an extended family member in Central Jersey.

It was 3:37 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, and a pink unicorn piñata had just been strung up around a tree in the backyard.

Amid his 3-year-old daughter’s excitement, the reporter decided to let Giuliani’s call go to his voicemail.

Maybe NBC shouldn’t have outed him?

What’s worse for the president is that this appears to be a pattern. From The Daily Mail’s David Martosko:

From Axios’ Jonathan Swan:

And from the Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey:

So, what have other reporters heard on these calls?
