Cuomo and Giuliani Clash in Heated Interview Over Trump Whistleblower Complaint

Cuomo and Giuliani Clash in Heated Interview Over Trump Whistleblower Complaint

In May, Giuliani made plans to go to Ukraine to ask Zelensky to look into what prompted special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe and to look into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter's links to Ukraine.

There's then the question as to why President Trump has kept Ukraine's new leader at arms' length since his election in April.

The mainstream media is running with yet another story that will supposedly end President Donald Trump's administration.

The House Committees on Foreign Affairs, Oversight, and Intelligence announced they would investigate the allegations and the possibility that they have something to do with the recent whistleblower complaint asserting Trump made unlawful promises to multiple world leaders.

During the half-hour interview, in which Giuliani and CNN personality Chris Cuomo traded increasingly heated bluster and accusations, Giuliani called CNN "the enemy" while Cuomo dared the former New York City mayor to produce documents that proved the accusations he was leveling against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Mr. Zelensky's transition team, not wanting to be seen as taking sides in United States politics, rebuffed the request, a former adviser to Mr. Zelensky, Serhiy Leshchenko, said in an interview. Ukrainian officials have repeatedly denied this and there's no evidence that it occurred.

Adding yet another layer to the controversy, congressional policymakers were reported to be concerned that the Trump administration had been holding back military aid to Ukraine at the time. As he uttered his non-denial, he again showed his expansive - perhaps limitless - view of the legal authorities he acquired when he took the oath of office in January 2017.

As The Daily Wire previously reported, Joe Biden bullied Ukraine into firing a prosecutor that was investigating the company that employed his son Hunter.

In his first speech after taking office in May, he channeled some of his TV character's humility, urging Ukrainians against idolizing him by hanging his photo in their offices.

Trump called the Post's story "Fake News", adding that "Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various US agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself".

He also defended his conduct in the conversation with Mr. Zelensky, saying it was "totally appropriate".

"Then I have an Article 2, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president". However, Shokin was perceived by the USA and its allies as not pursuing corruption cases aggressively enough, Politifact points out, and he was suspected of trying to protect pro-Russian interests. And, in the process, suggested his view of his legal powers knows no bounds. "Actually. DID. IT", Max Bergmann, a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress tweeted.

Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School constitutional law professor, went so far as to accuse Trump and his team of an illegal cover-up about the whistleblower's allegations.

But Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to share the complaint with Congress. Atkinson briefed lawmakers behind closed doors on Thursday, and Maguire is expected to testify in open session before the House Intelligence Committee next week after testimony this week was delayed.

Trump and his attorney signaled Thursday night and Friday they have a legal defense teed up.

"Did you ask the Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden?".
