Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham invites Rudy Giuliani to appear before his panel to lay out his concerns regarding Ukraine.
Graham reached out to the President’s personal attorney Tuesday, saying he wants to learn more about the “disturbing allegations” surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
Graham has been a firm supporter of the president since news of the whistleblower broke, and he has repeatedly called for an investigation into Joe Biden.
“Did Biden know that his son was receiving $50,000 a month from a gas company that is being investigated by the prosecutor, wait a minute, the board, the guys on the board are being investigated for corruption, the guy doing the investigation is asked to be fired by Biden, I don’t know what happened, but it smells to high heaven,” said Graham.
Graham said “given the House of Representatives behavior, it is time for the senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine.”
Giuliani responded to the invitation, saying he will consider the offer, but he reminded Graham about his restrictions as a lawyer.
