The Justice Department has an “open door” to any individuals, including President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who have information on issues involving Ukraine, Attorney General William Barr said Monday and noted that the agency would “scrutinize” this information, The Hill reported.

“There are a lot of agendas in the Ukraine, a lot of crosscurrents, and we can’t take anything we receive from the Ukraine at face value,” Barr said during a press conference. 

William Barr also added that “for that reason, we had established an intake process in the field so that any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the Department and its intelligence community partners so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility, and that is true for all information that comes to the Department from Ukraine, including anything that Mr. Giuliani might provide.”

"As I did say to Senator Graham, we have to be very careful with respect to any information from the Ukraine," Barr said. "There are a lot of agendas in the Ukraine, a lot of cross currents, and we can't take anything we receive from Ukraine at face value."

As it was reported, Donald Trump wanted Ukraine's government to launch investigations he thought might help him in the 2020 election, including one into alleged impropriety by the Bidens. Trump froze military assistance for Ukraine for a period of weeks last year, then restored it; Ukraine's leaders did not open the investigation he wanted.
