BREAKING: TRUMP BEHIND ENTIRE UKRAINE SCHEME ACCORDING TO RICK PERRY  https://www.wsj.com/articles/rick-perry-called-rudy-giuliani-at-trumps-direction-on-ukraine-concerns-11571273635?mod=hp_lead_pos2 

"Energy Secretary Rick Perry said he sought out Rudy Giuliani this spring at President Trump’s direction to address Mr. Trump’s concerns about alleged Ukrainian corruption, a sign of how closely the president’s personal lawyer worked with the administration on Ukraine policy."

i.e. Rudy Giuliani - tied to four men arrested in a foreign influence scheme against U.S. democracy - is tied to the entire delegation to Ukraine, serving Trump's wishes.

Trump and Giuliani were uncomfortable that the new Ukrainian administration wouldn't help pretend like Ukraine somehow started the counterintelligence investigation against them.

Perry: uncertain if he will remain in the administration through December.
