Chris Murphy: ‘Giuliani’s Visits to Ukraine Should Be a Red Alarm Moment for the United States Senate’

‘I am very concerned that the president is willing to hold up military aid to Ukraine in order to get his political priorities undertaken by the Ukrainian government.’

EXCERPT:

MURPHY: “So Giuliani’s visits to Ukraine should be a red alarm moment for the United States Senate. I’ve sent a letter to the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, Jim Rich, asking him to conduct an investigation into Rudy Giuliani’s trips and visits to Ukraine. I know from friends in Ukraine that the new president there and the new administration there are very confused. They don’t know who is actually speaking for the President, and certainly Giuliani and others are making it sound as if they are speaking for the United States of America when they ask for these bogus investigations of the Biden family. And, yes, I am very concerned that the president is willing to hold up military aid to Ukraine in order to get his political priorities undertaken by the Ukrainian government. That would be patently illegal. That would be impeachable if it were true. But I think we have to put two and two together. We have to look at Giuliani’s visits. We have to look at this very bizarre announcement about the suspension of aid to Ukraine and worry that the two may be linked. I don’t have evidence that they are, but I’m worried about it.”
