Rudy Giuliani sought deals with Ukraine while probing Bidens

"If Trump is going to try to now put this whole Ukraine matter on him, Giuliani seems to be going along with that so far", Mimi Rocah, a former assistant US attorney at the Southern District of New York (SDNY) and a distinguished fellow at Pace University's law school, told MSNBC. "Well, you have to ask that to Rudy, but Rudy - I don't, I don't even know", Trump said. "Rudy has other clients, other than me", Trump said.

Giuliani has said in the past that he kept Trump informed about his work in Ukraine.

Trump had praised Giuliani's credentials Friday during an appearance on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" as an investigator to root out corruption, but the president told O'Reilly to talk to Rudy about what his intentions were in Ukraine.

The president has repeatedly praised Giuliani, the former mayor of NY, as witnesses alleged Giuliani conducted his own channel of diplomacy contradicting official US policy on Ukraine.

Giuliani has publicly acknowledged he became paid $500,000 by Parnas' company, Fraud Guarantee, for genuine work, but he has declined to give miniature print about the precise services for which he became being paid. We now know without a shadow of a doubt that Trump tasked Giuliani with managing his Ukraine "policy", including his effort to pressure Ukraine to help smear Biden in advance of the 2020 presidential election.

"Well, you have to ask that to Rudy, but Rudy, I don't, I don't even know", said Mr. Trump.

The Democrats pursuing the impeachment inquiry against Trump say the phone call shows he used the office of president to forward his political ambitions.

Reached for comment after the president's interview, Giuliani told CBS News, "the president never sent me to Ukraine". One proposal signed by Guiliani in February involved the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice. In the interview, he called him "a warrior". I called back several times with assistants or advisers to Giuliani with the question: "'Will there be or will not be a meeting?'" Lutsenko said. He has also denied that his withholding of almost $400 million in Ukrainian military aid was meant to compel Ukraine to announce the investigations.Multiple witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry, however, testified in recent weeks that a "quid pro quo" deal was being sought by Trump - any recordings of conversations on the matter between Trump and his key emissary in Ukraine will be of significant interest to investigators.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Wednesday morning that the White House was reviewing Nadler's letter.

"No money was ever received and no legal work was ever performed", said a representative for diGenova and Toensing.

Prosecutors alleged Parnas and Fruman used foreign money to buy political influence in the United States, directing large donations to American politicians as they "sought to advance their personal and financial interests and the political interests of at least one Ukrainian government official with whom they were working". "The damage is done", a Republican National Committee official said.
