A special team set up by Attorney General William Barr, has been reviewing records and documents from Ukraine for several weeks. CBS News’ Catherine Herridge and Clare Hymes, reported this on Tuesday.
Last Monday, Barr said that the DOJ had “an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant” and had established an “intake process in the field” for receiving and verifying material from Ukraine. He said any information from Giuliani or others would be “carefully scrutinized by the department and its intelligence community partners so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility.”
The fact that AG Barr took it out of the Main Justice in Washington and assigned it to a separate US Attorney’s Office in Pittsburgh, makes me to believe that there is more to look at than what Rudy Giuliani has released to the public so far.
Justice Department officials have been “quietly” reviewing records and documents from Ukraine for “several weeks,” a source familiar with the matter tells CBS News.
The source said staff outside of Main Justice in Washington have been assigned by Attorney General William Barr to review the Ukraine matter, adding that the review is being handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Pittsburgh and is separate from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe.
The new review includes some material provided by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, but goes beyond matters regarding former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
