Giuliani Cancels Ukraine Trip To Seek Dirt On Biden

Giuliani Cancels Ukraine Trip To Seek Dirt On Biden”

Giuliani told Fox he was "convinced from what I've heard from two very reliable people tonight that the president is surrounded by people who are enemies" of Trump.

"My goal was to share information to assist their on-going investigation of Ukrainian officials being used by Americans to gather information to assist Clinton in last election and to alert them to the very real dangers that there are people involved in the investigation ... who are attempting to shut it down before it reaches a conclusion", Giuliani said in a statement. And the president told Politico on Friday it would be appropriate for him to discuss a probe of Biden with the attorney general. "I am actually quite confident that the facts, with regard to vice president - former vice president - Biden are so compelling that there's no way he gets from here to the election, without this being investigated, OK?"

"We have come to a very sorry state when it is considered OK for an American politician, never mind an attorney for the president, to go and seek foreign intervention in American politics", Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY told reporters Friday. "In order to remove any political suggestion, I will step back and watch it unfold", Giuliani said.

Giuliani's planned trip, first reported by The New York Times, would have been the most high-profile effort yet by Republicans to call attention to growing talking points in conservative circles.

The other is the involvement of 2020 rival Joe Biden's son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch. "It's 17 months away".

In New Hampshire, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said Giuliani's proposed trip to Ukraine was "so very troubling, very disappointing, and yet not a total surprise, given this President's behavior and the pattern that he'd already set".

The trip raised the specter of a lawyer for Mr. Trump pressing a foreign government to pursue investigations that his allies hope could help him win re-election. The ledger detailed financial transactions by then-Trump-campaign Chairman Paul Manafort.

"I concluded that the President elect is being advised by people who were very vocal opponents of President Trump and peculiarly vocal supporters of Hillary Clinton", the statement read.

"I don't know the circumstances in which [Hunter Biden] took the job, but I can say this vis-a-vis Joe Biden: We're providing generous support to Ukraine; we're providing defensive weapons to Ukraine; we want Ukraine to be successful in its conflict against Russia", Schiff, D-Calif., told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

"We're not meddling in an election, we're meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do".

"Somebody could say it's improper", he said.

Throughout the investigation, Giuliani attacked Mueller's credibility and often tried to change the public discourse by advancing conspiracy theories about the special counsel or Democratic investigators.
