Giuliani and his associates, two of whom have been indicted in, are now in federal custody, allegedly reached out to a ukrainian energy tycoon who faced legal problems in america in exchange for helping find dirt on the president's political rivals. Giuliani'S associates report reportedly connected the ukrainian with lawyers who could get a top-level meeting at the united states department of just ...
ce. In essence, giuliani scheme was an attempt to trade get-out-of-jail-free cards for political favors as part of giuliani's plan attorney. General barr met with the ukrainians lawyers, who asked that the department of justice withdraw evidence in the tycoon's bribery prosecution. Earlier today, you said you are not investigating matters related to ongoing ukraine. Issues does thatmean that you have decided not to investigate these incidents. I know, as i think mentioned in a recent letter, and i've been in touch with fellow igs, who have been asked by members to look at those issues. We'Ve been in communication with each other. I think, as mr. fine, the defense department ig wrote to several members of congress. He was foregoing at the time undertaking any work while the house investigation proceeded and any matters here in the senate, and you know, as i mentioned, we will look accordingly at any action that we have the jurisdiction to review. Getting back to the section.

80 discussion, no other ig has that limitation by the way, so they caninvestigate their secretary deputy secretary administrator whomever. I just point that out because that's important to keep in mind as we get requests and why are we different than the state department? Ig the epa ig, do you agree that if true giuliani scheme is alarming, i think anything like that would be very concerning and mr. giuliani recently returned to ukraine in search of dirt on the president's political rivals. Apparently, in order to cook up a dossier of his own yesterday, he told reporters that president trump asked him to brief the justice department and senate republicans on what, if anything, he finds do you and are you concerned that the justice department would coordinate with the president'spersonal Lawyer on a scheme clearly designed to benefit the president's political campaign, i'm gon na look at the evidence myself and back so i've learned before taking any action, not just rely on news reports or other allegations, but to actually spend the time to look at them. So i'd act.
