Lindsey Graham ignites his own “corruption” probe beginning with Rudy Giuliani

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham announced on Tuesday that his committee would be opening their own investigation into Ukraine, beginning with Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

“I have heard on numerous occasions disturbing allegations by Rudy Giuliani about corruption in Ukraine and the many improprieties surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin,” said Graham in a Tuesday tweet.

“Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine. Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns,” Graham went on.

The high ranking South Carolina Republican took a jab at his House counterparts saying that, “Unlike the House of Representatives, I’m tired of only hearing one side of the story. ”

It’s now time to give voice to everything Ukraine. Let the chips fall where they may!

Graham’s inquiry into Ukraine takes on the same issue that Congressional Democrats are using for their impeachment inquary, and comes just a day after the Republican broke with Trump on the issue of troop removal from Syria.

Graham condemned Trump’s decision to remove troops from northern Syria, which was announced on Monday, according to The DailyMail.

According to the publication, several of the president’s usual allies in the Republican party called his move dangerous and potentially harmful to American interests and the lives of Kurds and Turks.

“I don’t know all the details regarding President Trump’s decision in northern Syria. In process of setting up phone call with Secretary Pompeo,” Graham said early on Monday. “If press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making.”

According to Graham’s assessment, the president’s move “Ensures ISIS comeback. Forces Kurds to align with Assad and Iran Destroys. Turkey’s relationship with U.S. Congress [and] Will be a stain on America’s honor for abandoning the Kurds.”

“Also, if this plan goes forward will introduce Senate resolution opposing and asking for reversal of this decision. Expect it will receive strong bipartisan support.”

After his interview with Fox News, during which he covered the issue of Syria and what troop withdrawal could mean, Graham went on tweeting about the issue.
