Released State Dept. Emails Implicate Pompeo in Giuliani Ukraine Plot

In Washington, released State Department emails further implicate Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in President Trump’s effort to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals, Joe Biden and his son Hunter, which is at the center of the ongoing impeachment hearings. The documents, released Friday, show Pompeo repeatedly spoke to President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in March while Giuliani was orchestrating a smear campaign aimed at ousting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

In more impeachment news, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, has been accused of meeting with a former Ukrainian prosecutor in Vienna in 2018. The prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, is a key figure in the Republicans’ attacks on Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Nunes has not confirmed participating in the meeting and has denied participating in the effort to dig up damaging information about the Bidens.
