A key figure in the Ukrainian affair has publicly charged US President Trump and put his lawyer Giuliani under pressure. He defends himself against the allegations.
Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has denied a key point in the impeachment investigation: In an interview with Blaze TV, the 75-year-old said he had never discussed US military aid to Ukraine with key figures in the affair.
The Democrats in the US House of Representatives want to find out if Trump used military aid worth around 361 million euros as a means of pressure to investigate Ukraine, which could use it in the US election campaign.
The US ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, had previously been heavily incriminated in his statement to the House of Representatives Giuliani.
He had worked with Giuliani in dealing with Ukraine at the express arrangement of Trump. Kiev should, therefore, launch investigations that could have hurt Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden.
Giuliani was mayor of New York from 1997 to 2001 and also plays a consultant role for Trump. He is accused, among other things, of having led past official channels talks with Ukraine to launch an investigation against Biden.
