Trump Says Rudy Ready To Make Report to Congress and AG Barr on Ukraine-Biden Corruption


We all know Rudy Giuliani is a tough crime fighter and he’s not one to back down from a challenge.

So do you think he just gave up on Ukraine?

Hardly.

New reports out today from the President himself say Rudy has continued on the case and is about ready to present his report to Congress and Attorney General Bill Barr personally.

The Rolling Stone of all places had the story:

Like a serial killer returning to the scene of a crime, Rudy Giuliani has been in Ukraine recently, still digging for dirt on former vice president Joe Biden, even as Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, are prosecuted for campaign finance fraud and the House conducts hearings and draws up articles of impeachment around Ukraine. While there, Giuliani has met with people who have been pushing conspiracy theories around Biden and claiming Ukraine, not Russia, meddled in the election—a talking point straight from Russian President Vladimir Putin himself.

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Trump said that Giuliani will deliver a report to the Justice Department and Congress on what he has found in Ukraine. “He’s going to make a report,” Trump said. “I think to the attorney general and to Congress. He says he has a lot of good information. I have not spoken to him about that information yet… I hear he has found plenty.”

Giuliani has been tweeting allegations of misuse of funds under the Obama administration, which CNN has debunked. “The Accounts Chamber in Ukraine found an alleged misuse of $5.3B in U.S. funds during the Obama administration while Biden was ‘Point Man.’ Obama embassy urged Ukrainian police NOT to investigate!” Giuliani said in a tweet on Thursday.

The president’s personal lawyer then expanded that theory to include former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, claiming the funds that were “reported as misused [were] given to the embassy’s favored NGO’s.”

Some of Giuliani’s tweets have also included shocking admissions, including that the corruption Trump was referring to in his call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky—something Trump himself has admitted, undermining one of congressional Republicans’ arguments against impeachment. 

In his remarks to the media Saturday, though, Trump said he was unconcerned about impeachment. “Nothing came out of the conversation, except for the relationship with Ukraine. And the people see that it’s just a continuation of this three-year witch hunt.”

Rudy's tweets:

Here's more, from the White House transcript:

Q Did Rudy Giuliani tell you why he was going to Europe? And do you approve?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I just know he came back from someplace, and he’s going to make a report, I think to the Attorney General and to Congress. He says he has a lot of good information. I have not spoken to him about that information.

But Rudy, as you know, has been one of the great crime fighters of the last 50 years. And he did get back from Europe just recently, and I know — he has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress and say — and also to the Attorney General and the Department of Justice. I hear he’s found plenty, yeah.

And more from a Reuters report on Giuliani’s trip:

An independent Ukrainian lawmaker said on Thursday he had met U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer in Kiev to discuss the alleged misuse of U.S. taxpayer money by Ukrainian state bodies.

In a statement on Facebook accompanied by photos of the meeting, Andriy Derkach said the two had discussed the creation of an interparliamentary group to fight corruption.

…As first reported by the New York Times, lawyer Rudy Giuliani has traveled to Budapest and Kiev this week to meet current and former Ukrainian officials for a documentary series amid the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

…Giuliani also met former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, according to pictures posted on Twitter and a statement on Facebook by Lutsenko’s spokeswoman. While he was prosecutor general, Lutsenko privately met Giuliani twice this year: in New York in January and later somewhere in Poland…
