Giuliani told CNN that he was responsible for some of the material in the roughly 40-page packet, which Democrats slammed as including "conspiracy theories" and "propaganda" about former Vice President Biden, his son Hunter Biden and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Giuliani added that he "routed" an "outline" of allegations to the State Department involving Biden and Yovanovitch as well as notes from his own investigations with Ukraine's current and former top prosecutor. 
 
 
Democrats say the packet of documents handed over by the State Department watchdog also mentions CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm that investigated breaches at the Democratic National Committee in the lead-up to the 2016 election.
 
The packet, according to sources and photocopies shown by Raskin, arrived at the State Department in an envelope indicating it was from the White House. Within the envelope, the paperwork was contained in multiple folders from Trump hotels.
 
Democrats quickly blasted the packet as "disinformation" and "propaganda" that contained "conspiracy theories." 
 
Both Raskin and a Democratic source familiar with the briefing pointed to Giuliani as the likely origin of the packet. 
 
"This was just another attempt by the White House to peddle Rudy Giuliani conspiracy theories," the source said earlier Wednesday. 

"If it really did not come directly from the White House, I would guess that it was Giuliani. ... Giuliani's name is all over it," Raskin said. "Somebody should ask Giuliani if he knows anything about this."
