“So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?” CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Giuliani in an interview on Thursday evening.

“Of course I did,” Giuliani shot back…

A Ukrainian readout of the call indicates that Trump indicated Ukraine could improve its image in part by completing the “investigation of corruption cases, which inhibited the interaction between Ukraine and the USA.”

The House investigation and Giuliani’s comments take on added significance in light of new reports in The New York Times and The Washington Post that suggest a whistleblower complaint about Trump, filed on Aug. 12 by a member of the intelligence community, centers on Ukraine.
