President Donald Trump has reversed one of the central claims of his impeachment defense by openly admitting to sending his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to hunt for dirt on the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Asked in a Thursday podcast with the Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera whether it was “strange” to send Giuliani to Ukraine, Trump said no and praised Giuliani as a “crime fighter.” In November during his impeachment inquiry, Trump distanced himself from Giuliani and denied sending him to Ukraine. Trump was impeached by the House in December over claims he abused his power by using military aid and a White House meeting as leverage to try to pressure Ukraine to announce a Biden investigation. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 5.
