Giuliani wants to take information from Ukraine investigations to Barr, Congress

The Boston Globe earlier this week also called for Trump's impeachment, with its editorial board writing that the results of the House Intelligence Committee's inquiry "make clear that the answer is an urgent yes" to the question of "whether President Trump's misconduct is severe enough that Congress should exercise that impeachment power, less than a year before the 2020 election". "He's going to give us a lot of good information".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Thursday, Dec. 5, that Democrats would move forward with the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the baseless ground that the president was not giving away USA taxpayers money fast enough to one of the world's most corrupt nations. "He has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress ... and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice".

'I hear he has found plenty'.

The inquiry was triggered by a July 25 phone call in which Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden, his Democratic rival, and his son and also a discredited conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 United States election.

Also joining Mr. Giuliani and the OAN crew in Budapest were two former Ukrainian officials who have been supportive of Mr. Trump, ex-diplomat Andrii Telizhenko and ex-MP Andrii Artemenko.

Giuliani was in Ukraine on Thursday, reviving the efforts that landed him and Trump in the impeachment inquiry now roiling Washington.

"Nothing came out of the conversation, except for the relationship with Ukraine", Trump said.

Telizhenko has been quoted frequently on pro-Trump media outlets where he has promoted the conspiracy theory that the Democrats faked the hacking of their own email servers in 2016 as a way of framing the Russians.

Still, Giuliani traveled to Ukraine with the conservative One America News Network in what he described as an effort "to bring before the American people" information he said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff "covered up".

Giuliani's trip coincided with an apparently unconnected visit to Kyiv by Philip Reeker, the acting US assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs. The "Shady Cast of Characters" includes reporting on how Giuliani, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker and former Energy Secretary Rick Perry were all involved in allegedly coercing the Ukrainians into investigating the Bidens. Among those Giuliani has made contact with is former prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko.

As he set off for Ukraine, Giuliani promised "evidence" that former Vice President Joe Biden and other Obama administration officials "contributed to the increased level of corruption in Ukraine in 2014 and 2016".

Biden has accused Trump's camp of peddling "universally-debunked lies".
