Trump And Giuliani Are Publicly Conspiring With A Foreign Power
Biden, who now leads the Democratic presidential polls, is seen as Trump's biggest threat in the president's 2020 re-election campaign.
Speaking on Friday to the New York Times, Giuliani said: "They say I was meddling in the election - ridiculous - but that's their spin".
Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, also said on Friday that he's traveling to Kiev to urge Ukrainian officials to open an investigation of their own, although he later told Fox News that he would not make the trip. Stephanopoulos pressed. "There's no public evidence that the vice president - former vice president - took any inappropriate action to help his son, but was it right for Hunter Biden to take a job like that in Ukraine while his father was engaged in diplomacy there?"
If the meeting with Zelensky does occur, Mr. Giuliani said he was going to tell him what he knows about "the people that are surrounding him, and how important it is to do a full, complete and fair investigation". Trump said it would be "appropriate" to discuss the issue with Attorney General Bill Barr, but said he hadn't done so yet.

The Secretary-General thanked New Zealand for its support for his Climate Action Summit to be held in NY this September. In Fiji, Guterres will meet with leaders and senior government officials from members of the Pacific Islands Forum.
Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from CT on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, went so far as to pen a letter to Republican leadership expressing concern that Giuliani was making the travel plans without government oversight.
Of course it's not appropriate and what is so shocking to me, I served for many years on a democracy commission in the Congress where we would partner with parliaments in emerging countries, emerging democracies and we would always say when you win an election you don't seek to jail the losing side.

President Trump criticizes democrat party officials for their soft stance on China.
Meanwhile, Giuliani has faced "withering attacks accusing him of seeking foreign assistance for President Trump's re-election campaign", the New York Times reports.
Throughout the investigation, Giuliani attacked Mueller's credibility and often tried to change the public discourse by advancing conspiracy theories about the special counsel or Democratic investigators.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA and Rep. Beto O'Rourke of Texas, despite running against Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries, are defending the former vice president against President Donald Trump's effort to smear him by claiming he behaved inappropriately toward Ukraine while serving under President Barack Obama.
The Jeremy Kyle Show
Known for confrontation, it is the most popular programme on ITV's daytime schedule, with an average of one million viewers. Ms Callaghan said Mr Dymond had been "quietly struggling", but praised the show's team for their after-care efforts.
In the Times article, Giuliani argued he's not acting illegally, though he admitted, "somebody could say it's improper". "I just want this investigated", Giuliani said. "And I'm going to give them reasons why they shouldn't stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government", the lawyer stressed.
