Report: Volker Warned Giuliani About Untrustworthy Info on Biden

By    |   Thursday, 03 October 2019 05:21 PM

The former U.S. special envoy for Ukraine reportedly told House investigators Thursday he warned the president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, he was getting untrustworthy information from Ukrainian political figures about Joe Biden and his son.

The Washington Post, citing two unnamed sources, reported Kurt Volker, who resigned last week after being named in a whistleblower complaint that sparked the House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, said he tried to caution Giuliani about sources, including Ukraine's former top prosecutor, who were unreliable — and Giuliani should be wary of the prosecutor's stories.

The Post noted Giuliani contends Biden pushed for the firing of Ukraine's former prosector general, Viktor Shokin, to halt probes into a Ukrainian natural gas company that employed Biden's son, Hunter. Joe Biden has denied the accusation.

According to the Post, Volker was named in the whistleblower complaint as the diplomat who set up a meeting between Giuliani and a top adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky amid Trump's effort to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens. 

Giuliani has said he acted at the request of the State Department and posted a private text message from Volker in which the envoy offered to set up the meeting with the Ukrainians. Shortly afterward, Volker resigned and agreed to sit for an interview that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tried to block, the Post reported.
