Lindsey Graham Offers Giuliani the Opportunity to Prove His Ukraine Conspiracy Theory

Giuliani plays down role in proposed Ukraine statement on corruption

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Tuesday invited Rudy Giuliani to seem earlier than his committee to speak concerning the corruption he was looking for to uncover in Ukraine on behalf of President Trump.

On his Twitter page, Graham wrote that he was inviting Mr. Giuliani to come to the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform on his concerns about widespread corruption in Ukraine.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said of his invitation to President Trump's personal lawyer Giuliani he is "tired of only hearing one side of the story".

Democrats have launched an impeachment inquiry into whether the USA president abused his powers and "betrayed" his oath of office by seeking help from a foreign government to dig up dirt on election rival Joe Biden.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said having Giuliani testify before the panel would give lawmakers "an opportunity to help separate fact from fiction".

Just weeks before that, Las Vegas suburb Henderson actually tried to lure the team to its city with a $1 billion stadium proposal. It will soon host the Oakland Raiders starting next season and is looking to add an National Basketball Association team.

Trump asked Zelensky on the call to do him "a favor" and investigate the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and a conspiracy theory about Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election.

Giuliani, meanwhile, is not the only person Graham has called on to appear before his committee.

As impeachment proceedings against the Trump administration heat up, Special Representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker resigned from his post last week and was later called to testify before the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs.

"These actions appear to be part of the White House's effort to obstruct the impeachment inquiry and to cover up President Trump's misconduct from Congress and the American people." said Engel and the other chairmen said, adding: "We consider this interference to be obstruction of the impeachment inquiry". Cory Booker of Contemporary Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

Graham has emerged as a vocal defender of Trump, even as most of his Senate GOP colleagues have remained mum about the president publicly asking China and Ukraine to investigate a potential 2020 rival. But there has been no evidence Hunter Biden was ever under investigation, and a variety of western bodies also wanted the former prosecutor to go for failing to root out corruption in Ukraine. This could be a particular point of controversy, as he as vacillated between saying his work in Ukraine was in his personal capacity as the President's attorney and then later claiming he was tasked with the job by the U.S. State Department. A campaign spokesman told Bloomberg that "bringing forward noted conspiracist and liar Rudy Giuliani would further discredit the reputation of the Senate Judiciary Committee under Senator Graham".
