House Subpoenas Rudy Giuliani For Ukraine Documents





The House Intelligence Committee said Monday that it had subpoenaed President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, as part of their investigation into the president’s effort to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

The chairmen of the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committee asked Giuliani to hand over documents related to his work in Ukraine by Oct. 15.



“Your failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena, including at the direction or behest of the president or the White House, shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry and may be used as an adverse inference against you and the president,” the chairmen warned in a letter to Giuliani.

According to a rough transcript of Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump repeatedly told Zelensky that Attorney General Bill Barr and Giuliani could help investigate Joe Biden.

Ukraine’s former top prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, said on Monday that he repeatedly pushed back requests from Giuliani to investigate the Bidens, reports Business Insider.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lutsenko on Sunday described Giuliani as being “obsessed” with potential misconduct on the part of the Bidens.




Lutsenko and Giuliani met in person twice this year, he told the LA Times, and they had “numerous” phone conversations.
