"Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, is encouraging Ukraine to wade further into sensitive political issues in the United States, seeking to push the incoming government in Kiev to press ahead with investigations that he hopes will benefit Mr. Trump.
Mr. Giuliani said he plans to travel to Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in the coming days and wants to meet with the nation’s president-elect to urge him to pursue inquiries that allies of the White House contend could yield new information about two matters of intense interest to Mr. Trump.
One is the origin of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch." NY Times
Well, pilgrims, this story ran on May 9 2019 based on an interview with Giuliani. It describes in detail all the business tediously and sonorously read into the public record in the Adam Schiff drama of the last week. Why did Schiff not just enter this into the record of the hearings instead of dancing about while looking more insane and power mad than usual?
Or did he? Am I missing something?
Clearly Giuliani was not trying to hide what he was about to do in Ukraine. He does not seem to have thought any of it was illegal or improper. pl
