The president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has not given up in his quest to expose the corruption in Ukraine involving officials in the United States In fact, just the opposite.
Just after the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland gave his testimony to the House on Wednesday, Nov. 20, Giuliani was speaking with the host of Blaze TV, Glenn Beck, defending himself against allegations made by Sondland.
During his testimony, Sondland said President Trump instructed him “to work with Mr. Rudy Giuliani,” his personal attorney, to exert pressure on Ukrainian officials to open an investigation into corruption in Burisma holdings. Former Vice President, Joe Biden’s son Hunter, held a position on the board there.

“Secretary [Rick] Perry, Ambassador [Kurt] Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States,” Sondland said in his opening statement. “Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the president’s orders.”
Sondland continued, “Mr. Giuliani’s requests were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House visit for President Zelensky,” Sondland said. “Mr. Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing investigations of the 2016 election/DNC server and Burisma. Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the president of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the president.”
Giuliani responded to Sondland’s testimony when he gave an in-depth interview with Glenn Beck of The Blaze on Wednesday. Giuliani said, “I never actually discussed the aid with them.” I had no involvement at all with the issue of military aid.” said Giuliani.
Exposing information that is behind the Democrats push for the president’s impeachment, Giuliani said, “Just about everybody in Ukraine is corrupt,” he said.
“There are several prosecutors sitting in Kyiv right now that want to come to the U.S. to testify,” Giuliani said. “They are not being given visas by our State Department.”
“Pompeo is the head of the State Department; Trump is the president, how can that –” Beck interjected.
“All I can tell you is that, for three or four years, is that embassy deliberately interfered with the ability to develop this story by not giving visas to [former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor] Shokin and now, four or five other parliamentarians who are ready, willing, and able to testify to this and go on television, testify before committees,” Giuliani contended.
“It is an absolute travesty of justice,” said Giuliani.
Giuliani said when the proof of Biden’s corruption was exposed to the media, it was ignored.
“The double standard is so bad; they are faced with absolute proof that Biden paid a bribe. They have a tape recording.”
A few weeks later, the anonymous whistleblower came out with a complaint that President Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate the Bidens.
“The original Biden story got no coverage,” and it turned out the Trump story is not true, and the Biden story is true,” he said. “We have five witnesses; we also have a confession.”
“I have sitting in my hands, unequivocal proof of a money-laundering transaction that went from Ukraine to Latvia loan, Latvia to Cypress loan, Cypress to New York or Pennsylvania, with $3 million in laundered money going into the Biden account.”
“The only reason it’s not being prosecuted is because the name ‘Biden’ is on it,” he added.
“They have direct evidence about the bribery, the collusion,” Giuliani added. “The case is a massive pay-for-play, multimillion-dollar scheme, and it is an absolute travesty of justice.”
Beck offered to meet with the officials in Ukraine and compile a report. “You give me their names, and I will go and bring the story,” he said.
“I will give you their names; I was in contact with two of them today,” Giuliani replied.
As of Thursday morning, Giuliani was blasting Biden on Twitter:
THE BIDEN DOCTRINE. @realDonaldTrump is a candidate for President. Schifty’s Committee and any other prosecutors are deliberately interfering in the 2020 election and must stop now. https://t.co/9xWtdK6gqn
