SHOW TRANSCRIPT

In an interview with former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly Tuesday, President Trump denied sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine on his behalf. 

The president said, "No, I didn't direct him, but he's a warrior, Rudy's a warrior. Rudy went, he possibly saw something. But you have to understand, Rudy has other people that he represents."

The president's statements contradict recent comments from Giuliani.

On Twitter earlier this month, Giuliani said, "The investigation I conducted concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption, was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges, that kept changing as one after another were disproven."

This interview comes as the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump continues and follows numerous witness testimonies that Giuliani was operating in service to President Trump in Ukraine.
