Trump Denies Directing Giuliani to Go to Ukraine on His Behalf in Interview with Bill O’Reilly
President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Bill O’Reilly and addressed Rudy Giuliani‘s in Ukraine.
GIuliani’s role has come under scrutiny in the impeachment hearings. The former New York mayor and current Trump lawyer has said everything he has done pertaining to Ukraine has been about defending his client:
Joe’s wide range of corruption included obstructing an investigation of Dem 2016 election interference. I needed that, as an attorney, for evidence to defend my client. Not to affect an election that was 2 years away. Between the two, I have a singular obligation to my client.

With all the Fake News let me make it clear that everything I did was to discover evidence to defend my client against false charges.Dems would be horrified by the attacks on me, if my client was a terrorist.But they don’t believe @realDonaldTrump has rights. Justice will prevail

The investigation I conducted concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption, was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges, that kept changing as one after another were disproven.

In the interview out tonight, O’Reilly asked the president, “What was Rudy Giuliani doing in Ukraine on your behalf?”

“Well, you have to ask that to Rudy,” Trump responded, “I don’t even know. I know he was going to go to Ukraine and I think he cancelled a trip, but, you know, Rudy has other clients other than me.”
“You didn’t direct him to go there on your behalf?” O’Reilly asked.
“No,” Trump responded.
