Rudy Giuliani's Ukraine 'Investigation' Stars Some of Kyiv's Most Dubious Characters - 2019-12-07
KYIV, Ukraine—The witnesses stand, with their right hands raised, as if being sworn in for, well, an impeachment hearing. Only this is not in Congress. The cast of obscure Ukrainians—a group seen at home as odious and discredited—are appearing in a television show with President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani, in what he casts as an investigation that parallels the process in Congress.
It would only be credible in a parallel world.
Andrii Telizhenko, a former Ukrainian diplomat, has been helping Giuliani produce the show for OAN, the One America News Network, a conservative channel now favored by Trump. OAN is publicizing the two-part broadcast this weekend, promising "witnesses who destroy [[[:Category:House Intelligence Committee|House Intelligence Committee]] Chairman] Adam Schiff's baseless impeachment case against President Trump."
