Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney for President Donald Trump, says Trump's phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was completely “innocent” and “proper.”
Giuliani made his claims in a column posted by The Wall Street Journal Tuesday evening. The House Intelligence Committee, as part of the impeachment inquiry, is set to hear public testimony regarding Trump and Ukraine starting Wednesday.
“If your only sources of news the past two months have been CNN and MSNBC, you probably think President Trump has committed some heinous act that is deserving of being drawn, quartered, and carted out of the White House,” he said.
“That’s a false narrative built on selectively leaked testimony from Rep. Adam Schiff’s closed-door Intelligence Committee hearings.
“The conversation my client, President Donald J. Trump, had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on July 25 was innocent.”
He said Trump had briefly voiced his concerns to Zelenskiy regarding former Vice President Joe Biden’s conduct while son, Hunter Biden, worked for Burisma, a company in Ukraine.
Giuliani said: “For Messrs. Trump and Zelenskiy to discuss these issues was not only proper but an exercise of Mr. Trump’s responsibility as U.S. president as expressed in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution: “to take care that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed.”
He maintained if Americans are permitted to see all the facts, “the truth will prevail.”
“But if the allegations against Joe and Hunter Biden aren’t fully investigated, we won’t have equal justice under the law,” he said.
