“Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine,” he wrote, adding
, “Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns.”
In response to a request for comment on Graham’s announcement, Giuliani told CNN, “Love Lindsey, but I am still a lawyer and I will have to deal with privilege.”
But Giuliani added, “Given the nature of his invitation about my concerns I might be able to do it without discussing privileged information.”
House Democrats are pursuing an impeachment investigation into the President and his contacts with Ukraine, triggered by a whistleblower complaint alleging that Trump attempted to “solicit interference from a foreign country” in the 2020 election and labeling Giuliani as a “central figure” in the controversy.
House Democrats have subpoenaed Giuliani for documents related to Ukraine as part of their impeachment inquiry.
Graham, a former critic turned Trump ally, has emerged as a fierce defender of the President over the Ukraine matter.
