Trump lawyer meets Ukrainian MP

Kiev: US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer discussed “international corruption” with an MP in Kiev who had claimed to have dirt on the White House’s Democratic rivals, the Ukrainian lawmaker said on Thursday.
Posting photos of himself and Rudolph Guiliani on Facebook, MP Andriy Derkach said they had also talked about “ineffective use of American tax dollars by Ukrainian government representatives”.
The lawmaker earlier claimed to have evidence of US presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter receiving lobbying money from gas company Burisma. The allegations are at the centre of a probe into whether Trump pressured Ukraine to launch an investigation into Biden.
Democrats are preparing impeachment charges against the US president on the grounds that he, with Giuliani’s assistance, solicited foreign interference for his personal needs. (AFP)
