Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department has an “open door” to any individuals, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, that have information on issues involving Ukraine, and noted that the agency would “scrutinize” this information.

He added that “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 and its intelligence community partners so that we could assess its provenance and its credibility, and that is true for all information that comes to the Department from the Ukraine, including anything that Mr. Giuliani might provide.”
