Graham: Barr is Vetting Information on Alleged Hunter Biden Corruption in Ukraine
AG Barr has 'created a process' to vet Rudy Giuliani's info on Biden's Ukrainian dealings
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has revealed that Attorney General William Barr has "created a process" to vet information regarding allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden.
Graham said Sunday that AG Barr is currently vetting any info provided to the Justice Department by Rudy Giuliani regarding Hunter Biden and possible corrupt dealings in Ukraine.
Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Sen. Graham, said the Justice Department has not been ordered to investigate the Bidens but is vetting all intelligence about Ukraine.
"The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of the Ukraine from Rudy to see," Graham said, revealing that he spoke with Barr prior to his interview.
"He told me that they've created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it's verified.
"Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man. He's a crime fighter. He's loyal to the president. He's a good lawyer."
"What I'm trying to say — to the president and anybody else — is that the Russians are still up to it," Graham continued.
"Deterrence is not working.
"So let's look at Hunter Biden's conflict. Let's look at Joe Biden.
"Vice President Biden, what did you do when they told you your son was on Burisma's board?
"It undercuts your ability to fight corruption.
"Did you take it seriously? Obviously he didn't.
However, Graham cautioned that Giuliani's information may have been generated as part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
The South Carolina senator urged Giuliani to turn over his intelligence to the Justice Department for review.
"Here's my message to Rudy: If you've got something coming from the Ukraine, turn it over to the intelligence people, the Department of Justice, to any Democrat," Graham said.

Giuliani has spent an extensive amount of time digging for dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden, as well as searching for evidence of Ukrainian corruption.
Gordon Sondland, the former U.S. ambassador to the European Union, said he worked with Giuliani to pressure Ukraine into investigating the Bidens.
Over the weekend, Giuliani claimed he has the "smoking gun" in the Hunter Biden case and claimed he has multiple witnesses who are ready to "name names."
