Trump Denies Sending Giuliani to Ukraine for Biden Probe

The subpoenas, which were issued to several people in Giuliani's inner circle, indicate that prosecutors are looking into possible money laundering, obstruction of justice, and campaign-finance violations. Trump and his allies allege Joe Biden and his son Hunter were engaged in a conflict of interest related to Hunter's business holdings in Ukraine.

Both men deny the charges.

Giuliani also stayed at Betancourt's estate south of Madrid, Spain in August while simultaneously working to unearth corruption connected to Ukrainian officials and former vice president Joe Biden, at the behest of President Trump.

One of the focuses of the investigation is Giuliani's consulting firm, Giuliani and Partners, the report notes.

Giuliani and his consultancy business are under scrutiny by the U.S. Attorney for the SDNY, an office he used to lead when he was a prosecutor before later becoming mayor of the city.

President Donald Trump is trying to shift responsibility for the alleged conspiracy to bribe Ukraine onto his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor has said. "I know he was going to Ukraine, and I think he canceled a trip". When asked about the allegation that he acted as an unregistered foreign lobbyist, Giuliani told the Journal that whenever his foreign clients asked for assistance navigating the Trump administration, he passed them on to registered lobbyists.

The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

President Trump is accused of withholding military aid and using a White House visit to coerce Ukraine into opening investigations into domestic political rivals to benefit his 2020 election campaign.

"You have to ask that to Rudy", Trump told O'Reilly.

Giuliani did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

The arrest of Parnas and Fruman is unrelated to the impeachment inquiry, and relates to alleged campaign finance violations carried out by the men.

Giuliani's businesses and several of his associates are now under federal scrutiny in a wide-ranging investigation.
