A new disclosure was made about D.C. politics yesterday.
Senate Judiciary Committee Leader Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Sunday the Justice Department has “created a process” to review Ukraine-related information collected by President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
Sen. Graham replied no, yet noted the Justice Department is “receiving information coming out of Ukraine” from Giuliani. Who claimed he heard it from Attorney General William Barr himself.
“He told me that they had created a process that Rudy could give information, and they would see if it’s verified. Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man. He’s a crime fighter. He’s loyal to the president. He’s a good lawyer,”
But Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said back in September: “The president has not spoken with the attorney general about having Ukraine investigate anything relating to former Vice President Biden or his son.”
Plus added, “The president has not asked the attorney general to contact Ukraine — on this or any other matter. The attorney general has not communicated with Ukraine — on this or any other subject. Nor has the attorney general discussed this matter, or anything relating to Ukraine, with Rudy Giuliani.”
“Look, the government has been so lax in investigating, it’s pathetic,” Giuliani would argue, “I mean, when I was a U.S. attorney, the day Joe Biden made that boastful announcement, the investigation would have begun the next day for bribery.”
As Graham expressed, “Here’s what I want to tell the president: I’m not going to be the Republican Christopher Steele.” He claimed, “Rudy Giuliani last night said he’s got the goods on Hunter Biden … I called the attorney general this morning and [Sen.] Richard Burr, the chairman of the Intel Committee, and they told me, ‘Take very cautiously anything coming out of the Ukraine against anybody.'”
A GOP-led Senate now searching for answers after the president was acquitted of dual impeachment charges last week.
