President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday suggested that the United States and Ukraine launch “a large scale joint investigation” into corruption in their countries.
“In reviewing my notes, it seems to me that a large scale joint investigation into Ukraine and the US would uncover and recover billions stolen by crooks, from both countries, at the highest levels,” Giuliani tweeted Friday morning. “This would be the most effective way to bring our two countries together.”
Giuliani reportedly traveled to Hungary and Ukraine this week for a series of meetings in an attempt to defend Trump in the ongoing House impeachment inquiry, according to The New York Times. The Times reports that he met with former Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko in Budapest on Tuesday before meeting several former Ukrainian prosecutors in Kiev later in the week.
"What Mr. Giuliani is doing at this point is still confidential and is for the sole purpose of proving his clients innocence. In doing so he will prove that this latest farce is even more baseless and malicious than the first attempted coup takedown. Once all individuals have returned safely to the United States, we will reveal the significant witnesses involved," a spokeswoman for Giuliani told CNN in a statement.
