Appearing on “Watters’ World” on Saturday, Rudy Giuliani declared he has “the smoking gun” with regard to Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings in Ukraine. The Trump lawyer said he has three witnesses ready to “name names,” and he urged Lindsey Graham, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, to “get started” with the investigation.
Watters asked Giuliani how far he was going to push the Biden investigation now that President Trump has been acquitted.
“I want to prove what happened,” Giuliani replied. “I believe if we prove what happened [Trump] will be totally vindicated.
“I could take it back to January of 2016,” the former New York City mayor continued. “A possibility the whistle-blower was there, NSC meeting–NSC, Obama, and Biden representatives tell Ukrainian officials, ‘Get me dirt on Manafort.’ I have three witnesses there.”
Giuliani named three people–“Andrei Teleschenko, Constantine Kulyuk, Nazar Kholodnitskiy … three witnesses are willing to get on the witness stand and say that in January 2016, members of Obama’s NSC violated the law Mueller was investigating Trump for violating. They asked foreigners for dirty information on an American citizen who was going to be involved in a political campaign.”
Giuliani indicated the three will name names and he added, “We have a memo.”
“There’s no doubt who was at that meeting,” he said. He went on to say, “The ‘Manafort black book’ was intended to blow the Trump campaign up.”
Watters asked what Giuliani had on Hunter Biden.
“I have what I used to call when I was a U.S. district attorney a smoking gun,” said Giuliani. “This is a money laundering transaction … It’s about $14.6 million. It’s a notice from the Latvian government to the Ukrainian government that Hunter Biden is under investigation for corruption.”
Giuliani went on to say: “I’ll simplify it. $14.8 million goes from Ukraine to a company in Latvia, disguised as a loan. Then it goes from Latvia to another company disguised as another loan, in Cyprus. And then it goes to the U.S. where we lose track of it because when Shokin gets it, just about the day he’s fired, there’s no money in here for Devin Archer and Hunter Biden. Everybody else, their money is listed.”
Watters clarified … “The two board members.” Giuliani concurred, indicating all the other Burisma board members’ money was listed.
“Roundabout, an international wire to avoid detection, disguised as a loan,” said Watters. “And you have documentation to show that?”
“Right here,” said Giuliani, pointing to his notes.
“We know a few Senate Republicans have asked the Treasury Department about the financial irregularities involved with Hunter Biden,” Watters said.
“This should have been investigated, said Giuliani. “Look, the government has been so lax in investigating this, it’s pathetic.
“These are crimes, that when I was a U.S. attorney … the day that Joe Biden made that boastful announcement about how he bribed [the Ukrainian officials], the investigation would have begun the next day,” the Trump lawyer said. “He violated the bribery statute, announced it.”
