Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department has an “open door” to any individuals, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, that have information on issues involving Ukraine, and noted that the agency would “scrutinize” this information.
“There are a lot of agendas in the Ukraine, a lot of crosscurrents, and we can’t take anything we receive from the Ukraine at face value,” Barr said during a press conference.
He added that “for that reason, we had established an intake process in the field so that any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the Department and its intelligence community partners so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility, and that is true for all information that comes to the Department from the Ukraine, including anything that Mr. Giuliani might provide.”
Graham, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Barr told him that the Justice Department “has created a process that Rudy would give information and they would see if it’s verified.”
Graham also referenced potential work done in Ukraine by former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden while on the board of Ukrainian company Burisma, with Graham saying that “if Rudy Giuliani has any information coming out of the Ukraine, he needs to turn it over to the Department of Justice, because it could be Russian propaganda.”
