Giuliani Attacks Trump’s Nominee For Ambassador To Russia: He’s Trying To “Hinder Me” As Trump’s Lawyer

The Hill reports:

Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday swiped at President Trump’s nominee to serve as ambassador to Russia after he said in a confirmation hearing that Giuliani was involved in a “campaign” opposing the administration’s former ambassador to Ukraine.

Asked about the administration’s dealings with Ukraine during Wednesday’s confirmation hearing, John Sullivan told lawmakers Wednesday that he was aware of a “campaign” against former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch by Giuliani.

Sullivan also told lawmakers that he became aware of a packet of information about Yovanovitch that was supplied to the State Department counsel. He said it was told he came from “someone at the White House” but that he didn’t know who was responsible for producing the packet.
