Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen provided such a directive as the measure ‘for avoiding duplication of efforts’. However, it could be also provided for the extension of the investigation of Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd specified:
“The Department regularly assigns U.S. Attorneys to coordinate or focus on certain matters. Nor do these procedures grant any individual unique access to the Department. Indeed, any member of the public who has relevant information may contact the Department and make use of its intake process for Ukraine-related matters,” he said.
Besides, Attorney General William P. Barr was criticized for his statement that the Justice Department accepts Giuliani’s information and it seems to be the campaign against Joe Biden, while he is the candidate for presidency from Democrats.
Meanwhile, Giuliani himself is under investigation as he is suspected in the holding of investigations in Ukraine and sought for dismissal of former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch with the assistance of Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.
Earlier, Rudi Giuliani, the lawyer of U.S. President Donald Trump, promised to publish the evidence proving that there was the assassination attempt on ex-prosecutor general of Ukraine Viktor Shokin as the main witness of corruption of ex-president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and former U.S. vice president Joe Biden.
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.
