Rudy Giuliani, U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, met with former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko on Tuesday. He visited Kyiv on Wednesday to meet with Ukrainian prosecutors Konstantin Kulyk and Viktor Shokin, The New York Times reports.
The goal of Giuliani's visit to Hungary and Ukraine is to provide Trump’s supporters with new materials to undermine the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry and, eventually, the Senate trial.
"Giuliani is using the trip to help prepare more episodes for the documentary series of U.S. Conservative TV channel," the report said.
As we reported earlier, House of Representatives’ Republicans have prepared a report that contains arguments justifying U.S. President Donald Trump's actions regarding Ukraine. Voice of America informed about it with reference to The New York Times, which had read the contents of the document.
"There is nothing illegal in the fact that three high-level U.S. officials - each with official involvement in Ukrainian affairs - have influenced U.S.-Ukraine relations and reported these actions to the leaders of U.S. State Department and National Security Council. There is also nothing deliberately improper with Rudy Giuliani’s involvement, because Ukrainians knew that he was a channel to Trump in order to convince him that President Zelensky was serious about reform," the Republicans’ report states.
