U.S. House Committees Launch Probe of Trump, Giuliani and Ukraine

Three U.S. House of Representatives committees said on Monday they had begun “a wide-ranging investigation” into reports that President Donald Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani and possibly others pressured Ukraine’s government to assist Trump’s re-election campaign.

The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees wrote to the White House and State Department seeking records related to what they described as efforts to “manipulate the Ukrainian justice system.”

Trump and some of his fellow Republicans have questioned whether it represented a conflict of interest that Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden, a presidential candidate, had served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.

White House aides did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the announcement of the probe by the Democratic-led House committees.

“the trend seems to be towards a landslide for Trump in 2020” Confused James What fantasy world do you live in? What data are you basing this mistaken opinion on? While no opposing nominee has been chosen yet, recent approval numbers are NOT in King Donald The Loser’s favor. They have been trending down AND they have never, ever been above 50% since being elected. He is not standing on a rock hard base. You seem to be very confused about this. Other than having a vise grip on the so-called “Republican” party and about 30-35 percent of voters, I… Read more »

>Always Confused One< Yes, it has been quite clear since January 20, 2017 the Socialists have been Hell-bent on trying to unseat a duly elected President because he won't bend into their shape or join in their corruption. It's been non-stop investigating of the greatest POTUS since Ronald Reagan and Trump's EVERY accomplishment is "insignificant, wrong or destroys democracy" because it doesn't have the Socialist's stamp of approval or their name as the originator. While there's NO doubt the Socialist donkeys will continue on their path of trying to destroy Trump AND the United States, the trend seems to be… Read more »

>Phyllis Softa< You continue to refer to the Mueller Report in trying to justify the insanity being created by the Socialists (formerly called DemocRATs). Hopefully, YOU are aware – as most are – that Bob Mueller did NOT write "his" report; did NOT hire the team of lawyers biased FOR Hillary and AGAINST Trump and Company AND that Bob Mueller NEVER EVEN READ the "report" which bears his name. Mueller made a fool – aka: jackass – of himself during his questioning by the House morons – which was clear soon after he sat down. So, for all practical purposes,… Read more »

The only way this will end is with 1776 #2 and the total defeat of the demonrat/communist party. They tried turning us over to the king of england and got their butts kicked, the first time, by patriots who wanted their freedom. The demonrats do not want freedom, only power. It is close and I hope everyone is ready. The demonrats/communists and their lust for power is the true reason for the 2nd Amendment.

“[Do] you have any proof; or, is this just some more BS?” Confused Jsmes

In early June the Democrats were discussing opening up an investigation to look into Giuliani for his “overseas political and consulting work”, connections and travels to countries such as Ukraine and Romania, replacing Manafort as this administration’s link to corrupt foreign governments and mafias.

*Joey* Both excellent questions. It is all over the news for awhile and then just fades away. Does that make them less guilty, less important or just more Democrats?
