Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., on Sunday called it “weird” that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was in Ukraine apparently on a corruption investigation.

In an interview with ABC News’ “This Week,” Gaetz said he’s confident the reason for the Ukraine visit will be fully explained.

"It is weird that he's over there, and I am grateful that very soon after I made those comments on CNN, the president put out a statement that said that Rudy Giuliani does want to come into Congress and explain his role, explain what's been up to,” Gaetz said.

“And I believe that the president urging [former New York City] mayor Giuliani to provide that clarity to the Congress will be helpful in resolving what seems to be odd having him over there at this time."

Gaetz said he also wants an investigation of any Saudi involvement in Pensacola, Fla., naval base shooting by a Saudi military officer, asking for a “pause” in program.

"There is a special kind of grief when the bravest, most patriotic Americans are putting themselves in harms way to train people from other countries ... and then they kill us,” Gaetz said.

“As Secretary [of Defense Mark] Esper is looking at the record-keeping, the accounting for these Saudi nationals that are in our country, the continuous observance and monitoring of their activities to ensure that there's not radicalization — while that’s going on, we should pause this program,” he said.
