Graham says he'll invite Giuliani to testify about Ukraine Sen. Lindsey Graham

Then-Vice President Biden reportedly pressured the Ukrainian government to fire Shokin, who was investigating Hunter Biden, or else the USA government would withhold foreign aid to the eastern European nation.

"Have heard on numerous occasions disturbing allegations by [Giuliani] about corruption in Ukraine and the many improprieties surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin", Graham said.

U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani will not co-operate with the U.S. House of Representatives impeachment investigation and can not imagine anyone in the Trump administration would work with Democrats leading the inquiry, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

"I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns", Graham said in a string of tweets.

"Given the House of Representatives' behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine", Graham added.

Graham's statement came after Trump ripped the Intel panel as a "kangaroo court, ' saying he would otherwise 'love" for Sondland to cooperate. A hearing with Giuliani potentially would turn the spotlight over to some of Biden's competitors in the Democratic primary who sit on the Judiciary Committee - Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar.

Republicans have scrambled in recent weeks to come up with responses to revelations that the Trump administration withheld a $250 million security assistance package to Ukraine as the President and Giuliani pushed the country's leadership to manufacture political dirt.

"Democratic members have plenty of questions for Mr. Giuliani and this would give us an opportunity to help separate fact from fiction for the American people", Senator Dianne Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, said in a statement.

"Good. I have questions", Harris tweeted. That strategy is evident in Graham's invitation to Giuliani.

Giuliani has stated that he shared all of the details of his conversations with Yermak with the State Department.

Trump and Giuliani also have suggested that Ukraine was involved in interfering in the 2016 election as they've sought to undermine the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling, an allegation Ukrainian officials have rejected. But there has been no evidence Hunter Biden was ever under investigation, and a variety of western bodies also wanted the former prosecutor to go for failing to root out corruption in Ukraine.
