Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsay Graham announced on Tuesday he is launching a new probe into corruption in Ukraine.
Graham’s probe follows multiple probes by the Democrat House into Ukraine corruption around President Trump. Graham’s probe is expected to focus more on corruption in Ukraine from Democrats after new reports show that both Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden’s children have or had high paying jobs around the Ukrainian energy sector.
Lindsay Graham also intends to bring in Rudy Giuliani to testify to his findings on Ukrainian corruption, an opportunity not offered to him by the House Democrats:
“I have heard on numerous occasions disturbing allegations by Rudy Giuliani about corruption in Ukraine and the many improprieties surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.”
“Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine. Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns.”
Giuliani has spent the last year investigating potential corruption surrounding Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Hunter has held a lucrative job with controversial Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings since 2014. When he was hired to Burisma at $50k-per-month his business partner Chris Heinz broke ties with Biden over fears of corruption. Heinz is former Secretary of State John Kerry’s son-in-law.
In 2016, then-Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in foreign aid from Ukraine unless they fired the Prosecutor General who was investigating Burisma at the time.
That same prosecutor, who has been accused of corruption himself, told Giuliani that the Burisma Holdings corruption probe was absolutely related to his termination.
