WATCH: Giuliani Admits He Urged Ukraine to Look at Biden Seconds After Claiming He Didn’t
Shortly after numerous outlets reported on Thursday night that the intelligence community’s whistleblower complaint about President Donald Trump involves Ukraine, Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani showed up on CNN for a completely off-the-rails and largely incomprehensible interview that featured the former New York City mayor repeatedly contradicting himself while he tossed out personal insults at anchor Chris Cuomo.
“No, actually I didn’t,’ the Trump attorney answered. “I asked Ukraine to investigate the allegations that there was interference in the election of 2016 by the Ukrainians for the benefit of Hillary Clinton.”
“You never asked anything about Hunter Biden? You never asked anything about Joe Biden to the prosecutor?” Cuomo asked, prompting Giuliani to assert he only asked why the case into Hunter’s company was dismissed.
“So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden,” Cuomo shot back.
Cuomo to Rudy Giuliani: "Did you ask the Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden?"
Rudy: "No, I actually didn't"

“Of course I did,” Giuliani exclaimed, causing a befuddled Cuomo to shout: “You just said you didn’t!”
