Lindsey Graham will tell Pelosi that Senate will not impeach Trump

U.S. Senate panel chairman says to probe Ukraine invites Giuliani

U.S. Senate panel chairman says to probe Ukraine invites Giuliani

Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday he will invite President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to come before his panel as some point in the future to testify about "corruption in Ukraine" and "other improprieties" involving the nation.

"I welcome the opportunity to question Rudy Giuliani under oath about his role in seeking the Ukrainian government's assistance to investigate one of the president's political rivals", Feinstein, D-Calif., said in a statement. Lindsey Graham's, R-S.C., offer to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Chairman Graham's announcement follows as the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman told Breitbart News in late September that his committee will soon hold hearings on the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether there was collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election. Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns, ' he wrote.

It was unclear if Graham's invitation was for Giuliani to appear in public or behind closed doors.

Giuliani did not immediately reply to request for comment by ABC News.

Graham said he has heard "disturbing allegations by Rudy Giuliani about corruption in Ukraine" and would like to hear Giuliani elaborate on those concerns.

Giuliani and other Trump allies claim Biden is corrupt because he called for Shokin's dismissal years ago while Shokin was supposed to be investigating the gas company Biden's son Hunter worked for.

Giuliani told The Hill on October 8 that he will consider Graham's offer "seriously", but he needs to sort out issues relating to privilege.

House Democrats issued a subpoena (pdf) to Giuliani on September 30, compelling him to produce documents, including text messages and phone records, relating to alleged efforts by Trump and his administration to pressure Ukraine to investigate Biden.

Graham, an ally of the president, said he is enlisting other Senate Republicans to sign a letter he will send to Pelosi stating they "do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and the Ukraine is an impeachable offense". Biden has dismissed the allegations and no evidence has emerged to support them. There was widespread criticism of Shokin from several high-profile global leaders, including members of the European Union and worldwide Monetary Fund, who said Biden's recommendation was well justified.

Giuliani, meanwhile, is not the only person Graham has called on to appear before his committee. The probe will also look into allegations that the president attempted to withhold aid to Ukraine in an effort to get Kiev to launch such a probe.

Graham has also stated on Fox News that the identity of the whistleblower should be made known.
