Giuliani Claims '100 Newspaper Articles' Prove Biden Allegations Despite Also Saying Media Covered Up For Biden

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani accused the media of being "completely corrupt" for failing to report on allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden's family during an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, despite later citing "100 newspaper articles" as the source for the allegations.

During a segment on Media Buzz, Howard Kurtz asked Giuliani to comment on the July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, during which the U.S. president asked his foreign counterpart to investigate Biden's family. A partial transcript of the call, released by the White House, proved that Trump did ask Zelensky to probe his 2020 political rival and even offered his own administration's attorney general to help with the investigation. The call is at the heart of an impeachment inquiry into the president, launched by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi late last month.

"There is nothing wrong...I mean, the fact is, the president of the United States has every right to ask countries to help us in a criminal investigation that should be undertaken," Giuliani insisted, before then attacking the media for allegedly failing to accurately cover allegations against Biden and his family.

"The fact is this is not a political opponent. It didn't start that way," he continued. "But the media, which is completely corrupt and completely biased—and you got like a really big story that's going to come out here about how corrupt this media is."

"Allegation after allegation of corruption, never followed up, never looked at," Giuliani added.

Later in the segment, when asked by Kurtz how he backed up his "broader charge that members of the Biden family were cashing in on his political prominence," Giuliani responded: "About 100 newspaper articles going back to the '80s saying that his brother was selling his public office."

Despite his accusations against the media for allegedly not giving light to the allegations against Biden's family, Giuliani cited specific newspaper sources in an attempt to prove his argument. "Joe Biden says, I never talked to my family about family business. However, the family business is in the newspapers. The New York Times in December of 2015 writes an article about how corrupt and how conflicted the relationship is with the kid," the attorney said.

Kurtz rebutted Giuliani by noting that "there's been many articles since then" that tell a different story.

While Trump has admitted to asking Ukraine to look into Biden, he and Giuliani have insisted that America should be focusing on a different scandal: Biden using his political position to benefit his son Hunter Biden's business interests. The unsubstantiated claims, referred to as conspiracy theories by most mainstream media outlets, alleges that the former Vice President had a hand in the removal of a Ukraine prosecutor in 2016 to benefit his son.
