On Sunday, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace dropped two bombshell revelations about the Trump-Ukraine scandal, further complicating his defense.
First, Fox News reported that Rudy Giuliani was not the only one working in Ukraine to dig dirt on Joe Biden.
In addition to Giuliani, Washington, D.C., lawyers Joe DiGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, worked alongside the former New York City mayor. According to a top U.S. official, the three attorneys were working “off the books” — not within the Trump administration — and only the president knows the details of their work.
DiGenova and Toensing have been staunch supporters of President Trump, and were close to joining his legal team during Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. That ultimately did not happen due to conflicts, as Toensing had previously represented witnesses who had already spoken to Mueller’s team.
Later that day, Toensing denied the Fox story, and called the reporting “categorically false.” But Chris Wallace said: “We stand by our story.”
If true, that would imply that this conspiracy extended way beyond Trump and Giuliani.
That wasn’t the only problem for Trump:
Fox News has learned that the Pentagon, State Department and National Security Council were “unanimous” in supporting the aid to Ukraine, and that Trump acted alone in withholding the aid over the summer.
That revelation undercuts President Trump’s claims that concerns about the aid to Ukraine were widespread and he was justified in hesitating over it.
