Giuliani Evasive On Whether He Has Security Clearance

The Daily Beast reports:

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani won’t say whether he has a government security clearance, as questions mount as to what type of work he was doing in Ukraine in an effort to advance the president’s political objectives.

The issue of what type of clearance Giuliani may possess came up during a hearing on Thursday with Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire that focused, in part, on Giuliani’s work on Trump’s behalf to convince the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter over highly-dubious abuse of power allegations.

Reached for comment just hours after the hearing concluded, Giuliani dodged several attempts about whether he had a security clearance. Instead, the former New York City mayor said in a text message that he was “never given classified info.”
