Giuliani Reads Messages On Air Appearing To Implicate Pompeo In Ukraine Scandal
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani implicated Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Ukraine scandal on Thursday night, telling Fox News host Laura Ingraham he acted at the direction of at least one State Department official and reading text messages on air to that effect.
"The whistleblower falsely alleges that I was operating on my own. Well, I wasn't operating on my own,” Giuliani told Ingraham. “I went to meet [Ukraine President Volodymyr] Zelensky’s aid at the request of the State Department.”
Giuliani then read text messages live on air that he claimed were from the Trump administration's special envoy for Ukraine, Ambassador Kurt Volker.
