Trump has vehemently denied any wrongdoing while pointing the finger at Democrats for launching another "witch hunt" against him.

The whistleblower complaint released Thursday also alleges that two State Department officials spoke to Giuliani "in an attempt to 'contain the damage' to U.S. national security" over his talks with Ukrainian officials.

Giuliani has denied the allegations. 

“At no time did either one of them say they wanted to contain damage," Giuliani told CNN on Thursday. "At no time did the State Department in communication with me ever relay any of that information you're talking about."
