Rudy Giuliani called concerns about how and why he allegedly obtained Hunter Biden’s documents “a bunch of bullshit” on Friday.
He also discussed Ukrainian parliamentarian Andrii Derkach, who has worked with him to help expose the Bidens. Giuliani has made attempts to distance himself from Derkach.
“The chance that Derkach is a Russian spy is no better than 50/50,” he told the Daily Beast.
The former mayor of New York City added that he’s been “laughing [his] head off” about the matter.
The Treasury Department announced sanctions on Derkach in September for pushing “false and unsubstantiated narratives concerning U.S. officials in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.”
“My guess is that George Soros is behind this counter-offensive […] because he wants to create a socialist country,” Giuliani said. “He’d like to see us collapse and see us taken over by the international […] whatever.”
He also said the sanctioning was because of “an intelligence ploy to try to create problems for Trump — because Derkach could probably bury Obama.”
Giuliani said that the president and senior Republicans on Capitol Hill were made aware of the information on Biden before it was released.
The New York Post released a story Wednesday containing photos of Biden and several emails allegedly sent by him. Giuliani said those emails came from Biden’s computer, which he reportedly left at a computer repair store and never picked up.
One of the emails, if authentic, suggested that Biden tried to arrange a meeting between a senior energy official at Burisma, the Ukrainian energy firm that he was a board member of, and his father Joe, who was the vice president of the United States at that time. Joe Biden has denied that such a meeting ever took place.
