Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney Vetting Giuliani's Biden Info: Report

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney, has information from Ukraine sources regarding former Vice President Joe Biden.

PITTSBURGH, PA - U.S. Attorney Scott Brady's office in Pittsburgh is examining material President Trump's personal attorney obtained from Ukrainian sources claiming to have damaging information on former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.
Citing two sources, The Washington Post reported that Brady's office was vetting the information that Rudy Giuliani forwarded to the Justice Department.The Post could not say why the material was being reviewed in Pittsburgh, and a spokeswoman for Brady declined comment.
Speaking at a news conference on an unrelated matter Monday, Attorney General William Barr acknowledged for the first time that the Justice Department is scrutinizing some of the allegations related to the political probes that helped launch the impeachment inquiry into Trump.
Giuliani has been working to obtain information on the work that Biden's son, Hunter, did for a Ukrainian energy company.
Giuliani himself is being investigated by the Justice Department in a case that has produced campaign finance charges against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. Both men aided Giuliani in his Ukraine-related activities.

and then there's this

Biden abruptly cancels New Hampshire primary party appearance, heads to South Carolina

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Joe Biden is heading south.

The former vice president abruptly announced on Tuesday morning that he won’t spend primary night in New Hampshire as planned and instead is flying to South Carolina to headline a newly scheduled kick-off rally in the state he’s long considered his campaign firewall.
“We’re going to head to South Carolina tonight,” Biden told reporters as he visited a polling station with voting underway in the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White House. “And I’m going to Nevada… we’ve got to look at them all.”
The campaign confirmed Biden is now canceling his originally scheduled appearance at a primary night party in Nashua, N.H., and will be in South Carolina instead. The New Hampshire party will go on as scheduled without him. But the campaign emphasized that Biden would continue to stop by polling stations during the afternoon.

Coincidence? Probably. Especially with Uncle Joe cratering just about every time he opens his mouth.

But who knows? Stranger things...
