U.S. President Donald Trump openly admitted to sending his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine in order to find damaging information about his political opponents days after his impeachment inquiry officially ended, CNN reports.
During a podcast interview with journalist Geraldo Rivera, Trump was asked if he was sorry that the had sent Giuliani to Ukraine. The U.S. President’s response was quite interesting: “No, not at all“.
It is worth noting that Trump denied sending Giuliani to Ukraine during his impeachment inquiry. When he was asked in November if he directed Giuliani to “do anything” in Ukraine, Trump said: “No, I did not direct him,” but praised Giuliani as a “great corruption fighter”.
As we reported earlier, Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate. He was charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The impeachment charges focused on Trump’s pressure put on Ukraine in order to begin a corruption investigation into Joe Biden, a Democratic White House candidate, and his son Hunter Biden.
