Trump ‘knew everything’ about pushing Ukraine to investigate Biden

An associate of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has said the president “knew everything” about their efforts to push the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden’s son.

Mr Trump is braced for his impeachment trial to begin on charges that he has dismissed as a “sham”, having repeatedly denied that he tried to influence officials.

He has been accused of abusing his power by pressuring President Zelenskiy to launch an investigation into Hunter Biden over his time on the board of Ukrainian oil company Burisma.

Mr Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was allegedly directed by the president to encourage Ukraine to look into unsubstantiated corruption accusations against the Bidens.

Joe Biden is one of Mr Trump’s likely rivals in this year’s US election.
