Attorney General William Barr said Monday the Justice Department is setting up a process to vet information that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is gathering in Ukraine about corruption allegations involving Joe Biden and his son.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that Barr had told him about this.
"The DOJ has the obligation to have an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant," Barr said. "But as I did say to Senator Graham, we have to be very careful with respect to any information coming from the Ukraine. There are a lot of agendas in the Ukraine, a lot of cross currents. And we can’t take anything we received from Ukraine at face value."
"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," Barr said. "And that is true for all information that comes to the department relating to the Ukraine, including anything Mr. Giuliani might provide."
