“If it’s an appropriate law enforcement investigation, you try to keep it secret so the subjects aren’t alerted,” he added.
The former New York City mayor has also been swept up in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Trump’s actions related to Ukraine.
“Such a one sided Witch Hunt going on in USA. Deep State. Shameful!” Trump added, perpetuating his baseless claim that bureaucrats are out to get him. It was unclear from the President’s tweet whether he was attacking his own Justice Department or the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
Giuliani told the newspaper that his efforts in Ukraine were appropriate and asserted that any alleged federal lobbying disclosure violations were baseless.
