Giuliani: Dishonest Media Covering Up Biden Scandal in Ukraine; Bribery, Extortion


Thursday night on FNC's "Hannity," President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani talked about accusations of corruption and bribery related to Joe Biden and his son with the Ukrainian government.

He blasted the media for not covering the story: "If Donald Trump Jr. got $1.5 billion from the Chinese, you don't think we'd be going crazy?"

GIULIANI: You want to answer why they didn't cover the retraction, which basically says just what I said? Because they are dishonest, because they are corrupt, and the President is absolutely right. And the people who do that are the enemy of the people, because what they are doing is they are perpetuating a complete lie.

HANNITY: They've done it for two years.

GIULIANI: It's the reason why they won't cover Ukraine. If Donald Trump Jr. got $1.5 billion from the Chinese, you don't think we'd be going crazy?

HANNITY: And Donald Trump is father, in this case, Joe Biden the father?

GIULIANI: Well, Biden's kid got $1.5 billion from China for a start-up private equity fund, while the old man was giving us away to China.

HANNITY: He was flying in Air Force too.

GIULIANI: He flew the kid there.

HANNITY: Flew the kid.

GIULIANI: He flew the kid there.


HANNITY: By the way, he had no background in that field.

GIULIANI: Oh he just been tossed out of the military for being a drug addict and they give $1.5 billion in China because of his expertise? Did they give it to him because Joe had caved into them on the islands, on tariffs, sold us out, so the kid could get $1.5 billion? We're not covering that?

HANNITY: In the Ukraine as well.

GULIANI: And you tell me these people are honest?

HANNITY: Let me ask you.

GIULIANI: They are covering - trying to figure out if Donald Trump got a parking ticket 20 years ago and they don't want to cover $1.5 billion? How about the $5 million from one of the most crooked people in the Ukraine, while Joe is doling out the money to the Ukraine? And then Joe bribes the President of the Ukraine.

HANNITY: He says, you have six hours, fire the prosecutor that's investigating his son, or I'm leaving with America's money.

GIULIANI: The money that would have the country go under. Remember, it wasn't just $1.2 billion, as if that's not a lot of money, they were going to default, if they didn't get $1.2 billion. They were desperate. Poroshenko didn't want to fire the guy. He was the godfather of the guy's kid. He did it because he was extorted. That's the crime, Joe, extorted. And by the way, when he took the money for Ukraine, we call that under our laws bribery.

Bribery, not some ridiculous obstruction, where there is no underlying crime, and no active obstruction. Here, we got the money, we got the pressure, we got the result, we got the official action, offering money or withholding money for an official action is the classical common-law crime of bribery.

HANNITY: You said the word--

GIULIANI: And the dishonest press will not cover it. And that's why when the President says they are dishonest, when he says they are corrupt, and even when he says they are the enemy of the people, those aren't words - they are proving it.
