US Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday confirmed that the Justice Department is currently assessing information about Ukraine provided by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who says the info contains a “smoking gun.”
“The Justice Department has the obligation to have an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant,” Barr told reporters. “But as I did say to Senator [Lindsey] Graham … we have to be very careful … with respect to any information coming from the Ukraine.”
“We can’t take anything we receive from the Ukraine at face value,” Barr said. “For that reason, we had established an intake process in the field so that any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the department” to assess its credibility.
The Washington Post reported that Scott Brady, the US Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, will vet the Ukraine documents gathered by Rudy Giuliani about the Biden crime family.
A Justice Department official said Giuliani had “recently” shared information with federal law enforcement officials through the process described by Barr. Two people familiar with the matter said the information is being routed to the U.S. attorney’s office in Pittsburgh.
It is not clear whether Scott W. Brady, the U.S. attorney in Pittsburgh, will play a similar role, or why his office was chosen. A spokeswoman for Brady’s office declined to comment.
US Attorney Scott Brady appears to be tough on crime so there is hope that justice may be served.

Recall, Scott Brady previously asked then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to give federal prosecutors in his office permission to seek the death penalty against Robert Bowers, the man who shot up a Pittsburgh synagogue in October of 2018.
Democrat lawmakers however, are doing everything they can to obstruct an investigation into the Biden crime family.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) on Monday sent US Attorney General Bill Barr a letter demanding to know why the DOJ is receiving Biden-Ukraine info from Giuliani ‘outside of the normal channels.’
