  • Biden investigation not raised during 2017 meeting, former Ukrainian president says

It was a busy weekend in Ukraine-scandal news, and a bad one if you're Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney and point man on all Ukraine-adjacent conspiracy theories. In an interview with Dmitry Firtash and Ihor Kolomoisky, it gave a new perspective and dimension to the entire account of events that involve the constant pressure from Trump's side to call for an investigation against Biden at the same time revealed about the dealings of Giuliani. Much of the trouble for Giuliani comes thanks to his associate Lev Parnas, who was arrested last month with Igor Fruman on campaign-finance-violation charges related to the Ukraine plot.

Giuliani in March was also orchestrating a smear campaign against former USA ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, whom Trump removed from her post in May.

"Mr. Giuliani promised me to raise the level of our cooperation in cybersecurity", Poroshenko said during the Forum on International Security in Canada.

The state department released the documents to the group American Oversight in response to a freedom of information lawsuit. Last week, USA ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland testified that Pompeo knew about the campaign to trade a White House meeting with Ukraine's president for investigations into Biden and the 2016 election. That's around the same time that Giuliani was beginning to publicly push for Ukraine to investigate Biden and attempting to oust Marie Yovanovitch from her post as USA ambassador to Ukraine.

A second memo appears to be a summary of an interview with Yuri Lutsenko, also a former prosecutor general of Ukraine, conducted in the presence of Giuliani, Parnas and Fruman. One of them has been charged with allegations of bribery and the other was part of a massive money-laundering scandal that is still under investigation. Giuliani was asked whether he was concerned about being indicted. I represented my client in a very, very effective way. I did the right thing.

"Look, I'm the president of Ukraine, the great European nation, the great European country; the biggest [in terms of] territory in Europe and definitely I can not imagine this type of talks with me as the president of Ukraine", he said during a brief question and answer session in Halifax.

The explosive interview continued with Giuliani saying that he has a kill switch in case something happens against him referencing his tweet earlier that day.
