President Trump told reporters on Saturday that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, wants to tell Congress about new information about Joe Biden that he supposedly dug up during his recent trip to Ukraine.
‘He has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress,’ Trump told the press at the White House before leaving for a trip to Florida.
‘I hear he has found plenty.’
The president said that Giuliani will ‘make a report’ of his findings and will submit them to Attorney General William Barr and to Congress.
‘He has a lot of good information,’ Trump said.

‘I have not spoken to him about that information yet.’
Giuliani was in Ukraine on Thursday, reviving the efforts that landed him and Trump in the impeachment inquiry now roiling Washington.
The inquiry was triggered by a July 25 phone call in which Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden, his Democratic rival, and his son and also a discredited conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US election.
Trump denies wrongdoing.
Giuliani was at the center of those efforts, conducting shadow diplomacy throughout the spring and summer.
On Thursday, he met in Kyiv with Andrii Derkach, a member of Ukraine´s parliament who has promoted unsubstantiated claims against the Bidens.
Derkach posted photos on Facebook with Giuliani and said the two had had a meeting to form a new group, Friends of Ukraine Stop Corruption.
