Rep. Matt Gaetz: Trump suspended Ukraine military aid over 'sincere' corruption concerns

Donald Trump plans to meet Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov

Mr Joe Biden's son Hunter was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his father was vice-president, and Mr Trump has alleged without evidence that the father got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired because the prosecutor was looking into the company.

Acquire. Matt Gaetz, a Republican member of the Apartment Judiciary Committee, stated he believes President Trump paused hundreds of hundreds in protection drive support to Ukraine attributable to his "actual" concerns that the country used to be tainted.

The claims Giuliani was probing - that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election and pinned the blame on Russian Federation, and that Joe Biden corruptly sought to quash an investigation into an energy firm where his son worked - have been roundly discredited.

"He's going to make a report, I think to the attorney general and to Congress", Trump said.


The Senate report, as well as the report of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, concludes that Russia's intervention in US political processes in 2016 is not an isolated phenomenon, the Kremlin continues its subversive activities aimed at influencing the 2020 presidential election.

White House officials have, the Post reported, become concerned about Giuliani's entanglements with foreign clients, with the former New Yorker mayor now under investigation from federal prosecutors in NY over possible violations of foreign lobbying laws. "I have not spoken to him about that information yet", Trump said. The Kyiv Post's in-depth coverage of the Ukraine scandal also zeroed in on the "Dirt diggers & intermediaries" including Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. He claims that in seeking the investigations in Ukraine he was simply acting in his role as President Trump's attorney.

Giuliani has denied any wrongdoing.

Asked about that theory, Wray didn't directly respond to the president's claim but underscored that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has no evidence to support such a claim. It also refers to Sondland, Volker and Perry as "the three amigos" acting on behalf of Giuliani in their Ukraine strong-arming.
