“I’ve asked Rudy Giuliani to come before our Senate Judiciary Committee to talk about corruption in Ukraine,” said the senator. “If he does come…then we’ll look at calling Hunter Biden,” according to USA Today.
USA Today wrote:
“Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Tuesday he would like to invite Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, to discuss what he learned during his controversial investigation into Ukraine, former Vice President Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter.
Trump and Giuliani alleged that Biden used his role as vice president to oust a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating an energy company that included Hunter Biden on its board. The calls for the prosecutor’s removal were backed by international groups who said he was not doing enough to battle corruption.”
The former New York City mayor defied a subpoena Tuesday from House Democrats for documents regarding Ukraine. Giuliani has been accused of pressuring Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden, one of the president’s potential rivals in the upcoming election.

Senator Graham also pointed out the House has not voted on authorizing an impeachment inquiry. He said he does not consider what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing to be legitimate.
This comes amid news of the Democrats backing out of the impeachment inquiry that they claimed was “top priority.”
“I don’t know what the House is up to, but I think an impeachment based on the transcript of the phone call won’t fly in the Senate,” he said. “The bottom line here is, I’ve seen nothing wrong by the president, and we’ll continue to march forward.”
Several of Giuliani’s associates have been indicted for allegedly funneling Russian money into President Trump’s presidential campaign. The FBI confirmed that a fourth man, David Correia, was arrested on Wednesday after turning himself in.
Correia and the others are expected to make court appearances on Thursday. The president’s attorney has denied any knowledge of their actions. [RELATED: [VIDEO] Project Veritas Exposes CNN’s ‘Personal Vendetta’ Against Trump Part 1 and 2]
