This morning on NPR, I discussed the latest controversy triggered by President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. We have previously discussed the often conflicting statements made by Rudy Giuliani in this representation of President Donald Trump and the failure to follow a type of legal Hippocratic oath to first do no harm to one’s client. Last night Giuliani triggered another firestorm of criticism on CNN after he first denied speaking to Ukraine about investigating Joe Biden and then immediately contradicted himself and said that he did.
The interview with Chris Cuomo seemed at times unhinged and uncontrolled. The entire interview is below.
Reports indicate that the subject of the whistleblow complaint found credible and “urgent” by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz was the Ukraine. Specifically, it is alleged that Trump called the head of Ukraine to pressure the country to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
In fairness to the White House, Hunter Biden was responsible for highly disturbing conflicts of interest while his father was Vice President. He made a huge about of money in Ukraine and China and even conducted business in China when accompanying his father to China. The New York Times and others have said that, at a minimum, Hunter Biden presented a serious appearance of conflict of interest for Biden.
However, the merits are not at issue on those allegations. The issue is whether Trump used $250 million in withheld military aid to pressure a foreign leader to investigate his political opponent.
