On Wednesday, the liberal watchdog group American Oversight reported that new documents obtained from a Freedom of Information Act request indicate Attorney General William Barr requested that a high-ranking official at the Justice Department meet with Joseph DiGenova, a Rudy Giuliani ally, regarding Ukraine.


DiGenova, a former U.S. Attorney under Ronald Reagan and a frequent commentator on Fox News, is known for promoting pro-Trump conspiracy theories. He has claimed that the intelligence community is trying to frame Trump for a "falsely created crime," referred to the impeachment investigation as "regicide," and argued that senior members of the State Department, CIA, and FBI should be investigated by a federal grand jury.
