The president said that Giuliani will "make a report" of his findings and will submit them to Attorney General William Barr and to Congress.

In an attempt to exonerate President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani has been working with right-wing media outlet One America News Network (OAN) to produce a television special featuring a string of current and former Ukrainian officials defending Trump's conduct in withholding military aid to Ukraine and seeking investigations of the Bidens.

Mr Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, has been travelling to Ukraine to pursue investigations into Mr Trump's potential 2020 Democratic rival Joe Biden and Mr Biden's son, as well as a discredited conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, interfered in the 2016 U.S. election to help Mr Trump's Democratic rival, Mrs Hillary Clinton.

This week, Rudy Giuliani flew to Ukraine in a move that some senior White House and national security officials reportedly found troubling.

Joe Biden's son Hunter was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his father was vice president, and Trump has alleged without evidence that the father got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired because the prosecutor was looking into the company.

Before arriving in Kyiv, Giuliani stopped in the Hungarian capital. Giuliani's trip to Ukraine this week raised lots of questions, particularly since it came at a time when the House impeachment investigation is at center stage and many have criticized him for carrying out a shadow foreign policy for Trump.

Ryaboshapka said last month Ukraine was deepening its probe into the founder of Burisma. Zelensky's office did not respond to a request for comment.
