Gestapo Rising: William Barr To Work With Rudy Giuliani On Bogus Biden Investigation Ordered By Trump
Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department will “scrutinize” information provided by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on issues involving Ukraine, claiming that the agency has an “open door” to any individuals with information about Ukraine.
“There are a lot of agendas in the Ukraine, a lot of crosscurrents, and we can’t take anything we receive from the Ukraine at face value,” Barr said during a press conference, according to The Hill.
He added that “for that reason, we had established an intake process in the field so that any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the Department and its intelligence community partners so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility, and that is true for all information that comes to the Department from the Ukraine, including anything that Mr. Giuliani might provide.”
Barr’s comments were made in response to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) saying during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” this past weekend that the Justice Department had created a process to vet information collected by Giuliani — who also serves as President Trump’s personal lawyer — on Ukraine.
Giuliani traveled to Ukraine in December in the midst of the House impeachment inquiry into Trump. During this trip, Giuliani met with multiple Ukrainian officials in an effort to find out information on the Bidens that would support Trump’s side of the impeachment case.
