A lawyer in Little Rock, Arkansas said former Ukrainian prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko contacted him in 2018 with allegations that Joe Biden may have used his influence while vice president to protect a Ukrainian company that employed his son.
Bud Cummins, former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, said in an interview Monday that intermediaries for Lutsenko contacted him to see if he would help them bring the information to U.S. authorities.
Cummins then contacted U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman of Manhattan, N.Y. about the information, but he dropped it when Berman didn’t seem interested.
Cummins said he had no role in the information getting to President Donald Trump or being made public. He said he only passed it on because the intermediaries promised him evidence and documentation.
He has never accused the Bidens of any crime, he said, but if they have not been investigated over these allegations, it represents a “gross double standard” compared with how Trump has been treated.
