Rudy Giuliani revealed that he is still in contact with two members of Ukraine’s parliament as he continues to investigate alleged corruption by former Vice President Biden and his son.
President Trump’s personal attorney spoke with Glenn Beck on The Blaze Wednesday about his latest efforts to uncover Democratic corruption related to Ukraine and to weigh in on the impeachment inquiry.
Giuliani’s interview came on the same day that US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified in the House impeachment hearings that Giuliani was engaged in a “quid pro quo” effort to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for a one-on-one meeting with Trump.
“Secretary [Rick] Perry, Ambassador [Kurt] Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States,” Sondland said in his opening statement before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. “Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the president’s orders.”

“Mr. Giuliani’s requests were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House visit for President Zelensky,” Sondland said. “Mr. Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing investigations of the 2016 election/DNC server and Burisma. Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the President of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the President.”
Speaking with Beck in a lengthy interview, Giuliani said he was still working on exposing the “travesty of justice” as Democrats continue their relentless pursuit to impeach the president, revealing an “infuriating” fact about Ukrainian officials.
“There are several prosecutors sitting in Kyiv right now that want to come to the US to testify,” Giuliani said. “They are not being given visas by our State Department.”
“Pompeo is the head of the State Department, Trump is the president, how can that – ” Beck interjected.
“All I can tell you is that, for three or four years, is that embassy deliberately interfered with the ability to develop this story by not giving visas to [former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor] Shokin and now, four or five other parliamentarians who are ready, willing, and able to testify to this and go on television, testify before committees,” the former New York City mayor contended.
“They have direct evidence about the bribery, the collusion,” Giuliani added. “The case is a massive pay-for-play, multi-million-dollar scheme and it is an absolute travesty of justice.”
Beck suggested he could travel to Ukraine to meet with the officials personally and return with a report.
“You give me their names and I will go and bring the story,” he said.
“I will give you their names, I was in contact with two of them today,” Giuliani replied.
As of Thursday morning, Giuliani was blasting Biden on Twitter:
THE BIDEN DOCTRINE. @realDonaldTrump is a candidate for President. Schifty’s Committee and any other prosecutors are deliberately interfering in the 2020 election and must stop now. https://t.co/9xWtdK6gqn
