Rudy GuilianiCNN on Monday reported that it had obtained a 2019 phone call in which Trump ally Rudy Giuliani can be heard pressuring a Ukrainian senior official to open an investigation into conspiracy theories about then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, appearing to imply that U.S.-Ukrainian relations would improve if such a request was granted.

According to CNN, the 40-minute phone call took place in July 2019 between Giuliani, U.S. diplomat Kurt Volker and Andriy Yermak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The call occured before Trump's call to Zelensky later that month, which later became the center of his first impeachment.

Giuliani can reportedly be heard saying in the phone call, "All we need from the President [Zelensky] is to say, I'm gonna put an honest prosecutor in charge, he's gonna investigate and dig up the evidence, that presently exists and is there any other evidence about involvement of the 2016 election, and then the Biden thing has to be run out."
