Trump says his personal lawyer to deliver report to Congress, AG on recent Ukraine trip

WASHINGTON, US President Donald Trump said Saturday that his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani will deliver a report to Congress and Attorney General William Barr on his recent trip to Ukraine.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House as he was heading to South Florida, Trump said Giuliani is “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 yet.” He added “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.” According to news reports, Giuliani recently he traveled to Ukraine during which he met with several Ukrainian officials.

On Thursday, Giuliani tweeted “the conversation about corruption in Ukraine was based on compelling evidence of criminal conduct by then VP (Joe) Biden, in 2016, that has not been resolved and until it is will be a major obstacle to the US assisting Ukraine with its anti-corruption reforms.” He added “the American people will learn that Biden and other Obama administration officials, contributed to the increased level of corruption in Ukraine between 2014 to 2016.” “This evidence will all be released very soon,” he noted.

Furthermore, Trump told reporters that “the impeachment thing is a total hoax … people realize it’s a total hoax. We had a perfect conversation.”
