Rudy Giuliani is urging an investigation into Joe Biden’s suspected conflicts of interest. The president’s attorney took to Twitter Thursday, saying Biden could have been involved in a corruption conspiracy in Ukraine.
Giuliani urged a probe into Biden’s role in meddling with Ukraine’s internal affairs back in 2016. This come after Biden confessed he threatened, on behalf of the Obama administration, to withhold a credit line to Ukraine unless it dismissed its top prosecutor at the time.
The Ukrainian official was leading a corruption probe into a company in which Biden’s son, Hunter, was a board member.
Giuliani said Biden’s conflicts of interest are apparent, but his alleged involvement in transnational corruption must be looked into as well.
