President Donald Trump offered an explanation for using his personal lawyer to work on Ukraine policy.
He said Rudy Giuliani had a crime fighting reputation and called Ukraine a corrupt country.
According to Reuters, Trump said this on the fifth and final scheduled day of public impeachment hearings.
The impeachment inquiry threatens Trump’s presidency even as he seeks re-election in November 2020.
A key question to the inquiry is the use of Giuliani to push Ukraine to carry out investigations against Trump’s political adversaries.
