Trump's lawyer cancels visit to Kyiv, meeting with Zelensky

13 May 2019

Giuliani wrote to Democratic Sen.

The report goes on to say that Giuliani claims this effort has the full support of President Trump.

"I don't know, I'll play it by ear, I'll see what is going on", Giuliani told host Shannon Bream.

The news came hours after Trump had told Politico in an interview that he planned to speak with Giuliani about the trip.

Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill also chimed in with criticism of the proposed trip. Some Trump allies have suggested they can tarnish Joe Biden with questions about corruption, founded or not, much like they did to Clinton in 2016.

"It's stunning that the Trump administration is going down the same tragic path they did in 2016 seeking help from a foreign government again to influence an American presidential election".

Good morning, lets start where Chairman Schiff just left off right there that perhaps Congress should consider making it illegal to engage foreign governments, foreign assistance in campaigns.

"And his defense that he's not seeking a foreign government's help in the election, just an investigation - yes, it's an investigation created to affect one of the candidates they fear the most".

"I think he should've said, 'We've had this discussion, the evidence is in and don't ever do this again or there will be consequences for Russian Federation, ' " he told host Margaret Brennan. "This is next level".

Rudy Giuliani used Twitter on Friday to explain his rationale for travelling to Kyiv to push for two investigations. "I am actually quite confident that the facts, with regard to vice president - former vice president - Biden are so compelling that there's no way he gets from here to the election, without this being investigated, OK? The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch", - the report added.

Within a year of the prosecutor's removal, Ukraine's new prosecutor general dismissed the case against the company, Burisma Holdings, a natural gas company controlled by one of Ukraine's top oligarchs.

Giuliani earlier announced plans to visit Kyiv to meet with Zelensky to convince the Ukrainian authorities of the need to launch an investigation involving the interests of U.S. President Donald Trump on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"I don't want any favors".

"I'm not sure you have the intellectual acuity that you might have had in your 60s", Gates said in a pre-taped interview. In 2017, both the Democratic National Committee and a contractor denied working with Ukrainians.

But on Friday night Giuliani told Fox News he would not go to Kiev after all, because he would be "walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president ... in some cases enemies of the United States".

"I will step back and I'll just watch it unfold", he said.

Democratic Party front-runner Joe Biden is not only too old to be president, but he's been wrong on nearly every foreign policy and national security question for the past four decades, a former Obama administration colleague said.
