Graham On Giuliani’s Ukraine Claims: I Hope He Knows What He’s Talking About
With Donald Trump’s House impeachment looming, many eyes will be turning to the President’s sometime lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani’s actions in Ukraine became a prominent part of the current impeachment inquiry. Despite this fact, the former New York City mayor returned to Ukraine to dig up additional dirt on potential Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
And the lawyer for the President says that he has turned up some shocking information. Lindsey Graham has said that if he really does have something, he can come speak before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The senator did warn, though, that Giuliani better know what he’s talking about.
While speaking to reporters, the South Carolina senator said, “I don’t know what Rudy’s got, but I’m going to send him a letter. If you’re going to go on national television and tell the country that you’ve found evidence of a cover-up, then I hope you know what you’re talking about.”
Graham also warned that Giuliani has to be careful about the way he presents things. He continued, “I like Rudy a lot, but we’re going to have to watch what we say.”
The Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee said that Giuliani can come speak whenever he’d like. But that he’d have to be prepared to defend some of the statements he’s made. He finished by saying, “If he comes, you gotta be willing to ask questions about your conduct. It’s just not good for the country to make these accusations on cable television without them being tested.”
Giuliani has yet to reveal whether he would be willing to testify in front of the Senate about his findings from the Ukraine.
