President Trump spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night on a series of critical issues and recent revelations; saying Attorney General William Barr has done an “incredible job” in a “very short period of time.”
“I think it’s incredible when you hear it,” said the President regarding allegations of Ukrainian election interference on behalf of Hillary Clinton. “It sounds like big stuff. I just spoke with the new President of Ukraine, he got 75% of the vote, that sounds like big stuff.”
“They’re saying they colluded on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016. Does America need to see that information?” asked Hannity.
“I think we do. Frankly, we have a great new Attorney General who’s done an unbelievable job in a very short period of time. I’d imagine he’d want to see this,” said the President.

REPORT: Top Ukraine Official Opens Probe into 2016 Election Interference ‘On Behalf of Hillary Clinton’
A bombshell new report from The Hill’s John Solomon Wednesday revealed the Ukrainian government has opened an official probe into allegations of “election interference” during the 2016 race for the White House “on behalf of Hillary Clinton.”
“Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko told Hill.TV’s John Solomon in an interview aired on Wednesday that he has opened a probe into alleged attempts by Ukrainians to interfere in the United States’ 2016 presidential election,” reports The Hill.
“Lutsenko is probing a claim from a member of the Ukrainian parliament that the director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Artem Sytnyk, attempted to the benefit of the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton,” adds the report.
“Today we will launch a criminal investigation about this and we will give legal assessment of this information,” Lutsenko said.
Solomon went on to ask if Ukrainian officials possessed audio tapes of high-ranking members of Parliament discussing interfering on Clinton’s behalf in the months leading up to the general election.
“This member of parliament even attached the audio tape where several men, one of which had a voice similar to the voice of Mr. Sytnyk, discussed the matter,” said Lutsenko.
