Graham, Giuliani Team Up To Use Senate In Bid To Scramble Ukraine Story

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) plans to “inquire” into long-debunked and never remotely substantiated allegations that formed the basis of political dirt that President Trump tried to coerce Ukraine into manufacturing.

Graham invited Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, suggesting that the senator may be embarking on a quest to use the Senate’s relative prestige to launch a Benghazi-style inquiry that would give a megaphone to the debunked claims the President and his personal lawyer are making about Ukraine, and provide a counternarrative to the impeachment investigation underway in the House.

Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said in a statement that she would “welcome the opportunity to question Rudy Giuliani under oath.”

She added that it “would give us an opportunity to help separate fact from fiction for the American people.”
