Rudy Giuliani: Joe Biden Attempted To 'Bribe Ukrainian President' to Fire Prosecutor
President Trump's personal attorney accuses former Vice president of bribery
As Sen. Lindsey Graham prepares the groundwork for a Senate probe into former Vice President Joe Biden's communications with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, President Trump's personal attorney accused Biden of bribing the then Ukrainian leader so he would "fire a prosecutor who is investigating the vice president's son."
Rudy Giuliani, who is now at the center of the House's impeachment investigation, made the claim during his interview with Eric Bolling on America This Week.
The episode, which was obtained by Mediaite, is scheduled to air on Friday night.
“The reality is the president is confronting Ukraine correctly. The country has a big problem with corruption,” the former New York City mayor stated.
“You know the big thing in Ukraine about Biden?” Giuliani asked.
“How he corrupted the United States of America."
"Just step back for a moment from this political garbage and consider how horrible it is that a vice president of the United States bribed the president of a foreign country in order to fire a prosecutor who is investigating the vice president’s son, and every single person in Ukraine knows it.”
On Friday, Lindsey Graham sent a letter requesting documents from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to assist in answering questions regarding allegations that Joe Biden was implicated in the termination of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to extinguish the probe into natural gas company Burisma Holdings, were Hunter Biden was on the board.
All documents and communications related to Biden’s phone calls with Poroshenko on Feb. 11, 18, and 19, and March 22, 2016, were requested by the Senator.

The request comes amid the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, which was launched following a whistle-blower’s complaint that the president withheld military aid from Ukraine to pressure president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens.
According to a report on Thursday, Hunter Biden, and his Ukrainian business partners, received $16.5 million that was "obtained by criminal means."
On Wednesday, a member of Ukraine's Parliament alleged that Biden and his partners enriched themselves through Burisma Holdings using money that was stolen from Ukrainian citizens.
Hunter was appointed as a member of the board at the notably corrupt Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in April 2014.
