Barr Confirms DOJ Is Looking at Info From Giuliani on Ukraine

Attorney General, William Barr, has admitted that he has opened a channel to receive information from Rudy Giuliani, relevant to Giuliani’s personal investigation into the doings of the Bidens in Ukraine.

Barr confirmed earlier this week that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming to the department from President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others through an “intake process” to gauge its credibility.

“The Justice Department has the obligation to have an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant,” Barr told reporters. “But as I did say to Senator [Lindsey] Graham … we have to be very careful …with respect to any information coming from the Ukraine.”

Barr went on to explain that there are “a lot of agendas” in Ukraine and “a lot of cross currents.”

“We can’t take anything we receive from the Ukraine at face value,” Barr said. “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” to assess its credibility.

He added, “And you know, that is true for all information that comes to the department relating to the Ukraine, including anything Mr. Giuliani might provide.”

Last weekend, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., described the Justice Department’s methods for verifying information gathered in Ukraine by Giuliani, who has claimed to have information related to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Graham, on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, said that the DOJ has “created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it’s verified.”

“Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man,” Graham said. “He’s a crime fighter. He’s loyal to the president. He’s a good lawyer.”

    I’m very disappointed in bill Barr. He’s not charging mccabe and now he’s questioning Rudy?!!!really. I also got a bad feeling about him saying these things take time. Is this important to him. We’ve been through a lot. The President deserves to be able to drain the swamp of liars. If Flynn and stone are being charged why not mccabe.Not right

    Good God! With the Devil as his tailwind, Trump can’t lose in November. HOWEVER, someone or team/party can defeat him. HOWEVER, Trump will claim victory even if he losses!!

    Trump is a fantastic president who is truly working for the American people. He has had to fight against all Dem injustices and still he forges ahead. The real crime is letting the Demsget away with criminal conduct, i.e. McCabe, Comey, Brennan and Clapper. Just to name a few!
