Prosecutors probe Giuliani's links to Ukrainian energy projects

Rudy Giuliani ‘Jokes’ That He Has ‘Insurance’ in Case Trump Throws Him Under the Bus

Earlier this year, the duo pitched Ukrainian officials and energy executives on a proposal by their company, Global Energy Producers, to construct a pipeline to carry US natural gas from Poland to Ukraine.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the reports.

This led to a short conversation between the aide and Sondland, where the ambassador allegedly said that Trump cared more about investigating Biden than Ukraine, something that "Giuliani was pressing for".

Businessmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman have been busted on charges of funneling foreign cash to Republican politicians and the exhaust of a phony company to donate to a well informed-President Trump colossal PAC, federal authorities stated. They said that Parnas told them that "the big guy", referring to Trump, discussed a "secret mission" with him and Fruman that centered on pressuring the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

After a reporter requested Lamborn if Trump is accountable for Giuliani's actions, for the reason that president urged a global chief to deal straight with Giuliani, the congressman once more positioned blamed on the lawyer relatively than the president.

"I acted properly as his lawyer", Giuliani said.

A lawyer for Fruman declined to comment, as did the White House, CNN reported. The inquiries are part of a probe into Giuliani's financial dealings, particularly those in Ukraine, launched earlier this year by the Southern District of NY.

Mr Parnas and Mr Fruman were arrested in October on charges of illegally funnelling money to United States politicians, including to an election committee for Mr Trump.

Both have pleaded not guilty and are now out on bail and on house arrest in Florida awaiting trial.

The Trump administration's efforts to extort Ukraine into launching the investigations are now the focus of an impeachment inquiry House Democrats launched in September, and, as has been made clear since the inquiry commenced, Giuliani was the administration's point person in getting Ukraine to play ball.

He told the Journal that had Parnas and Fruman sought his legal advice, he would have told them to avoid involvement in any "ownership situation" in Ukraine while working alongside him.

Bloomberg News, citing three unnamed USA officials, on Thursday said federal prosecutors in Manhattan were examining Giuliani's financial dealings that could include possible campaign finance violations and a failure to register as a foreign agent. "I'm not even sure I was ever asked to be part of it".
