Giuliani Cancels Trip to Ukraine; Biden's Camp Responds

Rudy Giuliani Lawyer for President Donald Trump appears on Trump lawyer Giuliani threatens, then abandons, Ukraine trip

The comments were published as Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani canceled plans to travel to Ukraine so he could urge the country's president-elect to continue probes of the Bidens.

Before Giuliani canceled his trip, Democrats attacked Giuliani's plan, saying it amounted to an attempt to solicit foreign help to influence the 2020 election.

Giuliani, speaking on Fox News late Friday night, said he had decided not to go on the trip to avoid potential "enemies of the President". "I'm not going to go because I think I'm walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president.in some cases enemies of the United States, and in one case an already convicted person who has been found to be involved in assisting the Democrats with the 2016 election".

In a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this month, Trump discussed the end of the Mueller investigation but did not raise concerns about the possibility of Russian interference in the 2020 campaign.

He did not say whether he had briefed Trump on the trip but that the president "basically knows what I'm doing, sure, as his lawyer".

Rudy Giuliani used Twitter on Friday to explain his rationale for traveling to Kiev to push for two investigations.

One is the origin of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

One of those investigations involves Joe Biden's son.

Giuliani admitted in an interview with Fox News that the trip could be "very helpful" to President Donald Trump.

"The piece of the Mueller report about Russian interference is not 'case closed, '" said Gates, a Republican who was defense secretary under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. "I'm just curious about that", Trump said, adding he has "not spoken to (Giuliani) at any great length" on the subject.

Trump had told Politico earlier Friday that the trip could have been a "big situation" for the former vice president. Some Trump allies have suggested they can tarnish Joe Biden with questions about corruption, founded or not, much like they did to Clinton in 2016. But because President Trump has a penchant for mixing business with pleasure - and for blurring the lines between what's good for our country with what's good for him - foreign officials can be forgiven if they have no clear sense of who the real Presidential envoys are. "I hope for (Biden) it is fake news". He said Trump is - and should - demand reciprocity in trade negotiations with China and accused them of "cheating" the worldwide community. "I don't think it is".

Ukrainian prosecutors under outgoing president Petro Poroshenko have reportedly opened investigations into whether Ukrainian officials tried to help Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election by releasing documents related to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

"My goal was to share information to assist their on-going investigation of Ukrainian officials being used by Americans to gather information to assist Clinton in last election and to alert them to the very real dangers that there are people involved in the investigation. who are attempting to shut it down before it reaches a conclusion", Giuliani said in a statement. "Somebody could say it's improper".
