U.S. Attorney General William Barr confirmed the Department of Justice is reviewing information from Ukraine provided by Rudy Giuliani regarding Joe and Hunter Biden.
During a press conference Monday, Barr said the agency has the obligation to have an “open door'” to anybody who wishes to provide information they think is relevant. He also said the Justice Department has to be very careful with information coming from Ukraine and can’t take anything from the Eastern European nation at face value.
Barr pointed out that a process to evaluate such information has been established.
“We had established an intake process in the field so that any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the department and its Intelligence Community, community partners, so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility,” he stated. “And, you know, that is true for all information that comes to the department relating to the Ukraine.”
