Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani wants Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's son

On "This Week", Schiff referenced Mueller's investigation, questioning if there was "something wrong with" Giuliani and the president for thinking this wouldn't be inappropriate.

Giuliani was also interested in pursuing questions about former Vice President Joe Biden, who pressured Kiev to remove a top prosecutor in Ukraine, who at one point was investigating a natural gas company linked to Biden's son Hunter.

"It's stunning that the Trump administration is going down the same tragic path they did in 2016 seeking help from a foreign government again to influence an American presidential election".

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.

Rep. Adam Schiff insisted Sunday morning that the nation would not survive another four years of President Donald Trump. "Let's answer it now".

Giuliani said he was calling off the trip because there were "enemies" of Trump on the team of Zelensky, a comedian with no previous political experience who toppled President Petro Poroshenko in a runoff election last month.

Anticipating criticism that he was encouraging foreign interference in a USA presidential campaign, Giuliani told the Times, "There's nothing illegal about it", Giuliani said.

Trump 'very surprised' his 'very good' son was hit with subpoena
Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, wrote on Twitter, linking to the Axios story breaking news of the subpoena. She noted that Trump Jr. had already testified for hours a year ago before the same committee.

They then go through police-like training with a sheriff's office and undergo a psychiatric evaluation and a background check. Broward County, where the Parkland shooting took place, has rejected the program.

Venezuela lawmaker seeks refuge in Argentine embassy after colleague's arrest
Venezuela has suffered more than four years of recession marked by shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicine. In February, Guaido defied a Supreme Court travel ban to orchestrate aid deliveries from the Colombian side of the border.

Biden has long received scrutiny for threatening to withhold $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine back in 2016, to pressure prosecutors to throw out an investigation into a private gas company, where his son was on the board of directors.

A person close to Zelensky, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said the president-elect's team viewed Trump's interest in the investigations as a domestic US matter and was determined not to let it distract from his agenda.

After an exchange, Barr told Harris, "I don't know". "I hope for (Biden) it is fake news".

"I concluded that the President elect is being advised by people who were very vocal opponents of President Trump and peculiarly vocal supporters of Hillary Clinton", the statement read. The ledger detailed financial transactions by then-Trump-campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. In 2017, both the Democratic National Committee and a contractor denied working with Ukrainians.

Meanwhile, the president's re-election campaign distanced itself from Giuliani's efforts, saying it had nothing to do with the lawyer's inquiry.

"We're not meddling in an election, we're meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do". There is no evidence that Biden's conduct was improper and at least one expert has said the accusations don't hold up. Trump this week announced that he would invoke executive privilege to shield the material, certain to prompt a lengthy legal fight. In the probe's final days, he began to zero in on the possible Ukraine connection.
