Giuliani: My Ukraine Investigation Will Show "Substantial Amount Of Corruption That Took Place" Under Obama


President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani reveals what schemes he uncovered in his trip to Ukraine to investigate corruption. Giuliani said there was money laundering that went on during President Obama's presidency that involved former Vice President Joe Biden. In an interview with FNC host Laura Ingraham, the former Mayor of New York said that Trump is being impeached for "doing the right thing as president."

"What I uncovered there are two major schemes, one for $7.5 billion, the other for $5 billion, in money laundering that went on all through the Obama administration," Giuliani said Monday. "Part of it involved Joe Biden, the bribery part. It’s a disgrace that he’s not under investigation for it in America, maybe because our law enforcement is too afraid. But the reality is it’s a complete defense for the president."

"When the president of the United States was asking the president of Ukraine to investigate, he was asking him to investigate crimes at the highest levels of both governments, that the president of the Ukraine referred to as 'we,' meaning, 'It’s our problem, joint problem.' So, he’s being impeached for doing the right thing as president of the United States, nothing to be defensive about. Zero."

Giuliani spoke about the amount of corruption in Ukraine that took place under the Obama administration and how there are "numerous Ukrainian witnesses" that want to come to the United States to expose it. Giuliani reiterated that he "forced" out former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch "because she is corrupt."

"I didn’t need her out of the way," he said of Yovanovitch. "I forced her out because she’s corrupt. I came back with a document that will show unequivocally that she committed perjury when she said that she turned down the visa for Mr. [Viktor] Shokin because of corruption."

"Is it accurate that in some way it's going to hurt to show the substantial amount of corruption that took place and that that president was doing what he should do when he asked for an investigation?" he asked. "I'd say they're buying into the democratic spin. The fact is there's nothing to be defensive about. Joe Biden was involved in a multi-million dollar corrupt scheme along with a number of other Democrats."

"As long as those issues remain between the United States and Ukraine, we really can't fight corruption in the Ukraine and the fact is that there are numerous Ukrainian witnesses that want to come to the United States and explain how much during the Obama administration Ukraine was corrupted by Americans," Giuliani declared.
