Lindsey Graham: Rudy Giuliani is giving DoJ 'information from Ukraine'

Source: The Guardian

Senator Lindsey Graham has said Department of Justice officials have created a “process” enabling Rudy Giuliani to provide them with “information from Ukraine”, for further investigation.

Graham, a top ally of Donald Trump who was part of the successful vote to acquit him in his impeachment trial last week, cautioned that this information from the president’s personal lawyer “could be Russian propaganda”.

“The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of the Ukraine from Rudy,” Graham said, explaining that the US attorney general, William Barr, “told me that they’ve created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it’s verified”.

Giuliani was deeply implicated in Trump’s efforts to get Ukrainian officials to help his 2020 re-election bid – the matter at the heart of the impeachment trial. Trump was impeached in the Democratic-led House after witholding military assistance, as well as a White House meeting, while calling for Ukraine announcing investigations into potential 2020 rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: DOJ Has Established a Process to Review Rudy Giuliani's Ukraine Information

BY DARLENE SUPERVILLE / AP 2:40 PM EST

(WASHINGTON) — The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, a close ally of President Donald Trump, said Sunday that the Justice Department has established a way to review information gathered in Ukraine by Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who has targeted Democrat Joe Biden and his son.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Attorney General William Barr told him during a conversation Sunday that the department has “created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it’s verified.”

“Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man,” said Graham. “He’s a crime fighter. He’s loyal to the president. He’s a good lawyer.”

Giuliani is also under scrutiny by federal authorities. That means the Justice Department would be putting itself in the awkward position of appearing to work with someone it is actively investigating to gather potentially damaging information against one of the president’s political rivals.

2. Yeah right. How long has Giuliani been back from his last trip over there? He was supposed to

have come back with the goods on the Bidens.

I think they already have everything he was selling. This must be to keep it in the news. String things along and make people think they have a real investigation going on.

any of this highly suspect data w/ a grain of salt, they deserve to be railroaded out of office. This is pathetic beyond belief and a blatant and fake attempt to discredit Biden.

5. This Is how it will work....

AG Barr will be very cagey. He will say that they receive the information, and they are studying it. Even though he cannot release details, some of the information appears to be factual. But he will not say is that the factual material is :
1. Joe Biden was vice president of the United States during this time.
2. Hunter Biden did have a position on the board

This is how they smear Joe

13. No, Lindsey, you dipshit--

Rudy is giving information from RUSSIA by WAY OF Ukraine. Get your fucking facts straight, you worthless puddle of diarrhea. NONE of the "information" you are giving has an ounce of truth to it--it's tailored to suit your boss's boss's (Vladimir Putin's) interests. If you can't figure that out, you are one damned stoopid kettle of shit.

19. They had two f'n years to CARE. This is anti-Biden primary or GE fabricated bullshit.

Intel agencies or the House Intel Committee should debunk this shit immediately. House Intel has all the names and context of all these claims.

Depending on how Biden does in the primaries, the timing of its release will be the DNC. They will wait.

If it hurts Biden, DOJ will drop the Rudy investigation; it it helps, DOJ will throw him under.

Depends on Americans.

... police state.

Joe Stalin or Hitler would be proud of this scam.

Rudy is being paid through back channels by Russia to bring in misinformation aka Russian propaganda
and then feed those lies to a corrupt D.O.J. who will then use those lies in order to hurt political opponents
of Trump.


All those Republican Senators who voted to acquit Trump have now unleashed the devil.

investigating Leningrad Lindsey? Lost of dirt in his closet, no doubt. Hunter Biden should sue his ass off for harassment, then open the gates for investigating WHY Graham turned from a never tRumper to the biggest tRump ass kisser of all. Little weasel is desperate to get tRump re-elected, to cover his own arse?

25. Anyone else noticed

That the craven cowards who shake when Trump commands, eg Lindsay Graham, who is usually too timid to confront anyone, are
shouting the loudest in support of Trump.
Lindsay has got himself in the thick of it, with whatever Trump is blackmailing him with.

31. Follow their money

From Graham and Rudy and they will be shown to be the crooks, as will be done eventually to them for this. trumps attacks will only backfire on him and the GOP, and insure they are held accountable after they both are completely exposed for the russia putin money they're taking from putin, and were bribed I think for the impeachment trial results in exchange for their protecting trump , and re-election to Congress , all done by trump and putin to rig this upcoming election with , again. When they uncover the money funneling to trump and the GOP they will be in deep , deep trouble. Graham and Rudy doing this are only digging their holes deeper for themselves, and both should go to prison for this. They both are co-conspirators trying to help rig an election using foreign putin money. Who is financing Rudy's travels, putin, and that should raise many alarms now. You can bet soon trump will call for the GOP to lft putins sanctions for him in return for financing their campaigns, and helping them with his hackers. putins bribing the GOP now .

32. Fact check

“Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man,” said Graham. “He’s a crime fighter. He’s loyal to the president. He’s a good lawyer.”

“Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man,” TRUE

“He’s a crime fighter.” FALSE

“He’s loyal to the president.” TRUE

“He’s a good lawyer.” FALSE
