House panels subpoena Giuliani for documents in Ukraine probe
In a letter to Giuliani accompanying the subpoena, the chairmen of the three committees — Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) of the Intelligence Committee, Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.) of Foreign Affairs, and Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) of Oversight — cited “a growing public record” of information in accusing Giuliani of appearing “to have pressed the Ukrainian government to pursue two politically-motivated investigations.”
“The first is a prosecution of Ukrainians who provided evidence against Mr. Trump’s convicted campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. The second relates to former vice president Joseph R. Biden, Jr., who is challenging President Trump for the presidency in 2020,” the letter continued, demanding Giuliani turn over materials to their investigation by Oct. 15.
Giuliani confirmed he had received a subpoena late Monday. “It raises significant issues concerning legitimacy and constitutional and legal issues, including inter alia, attorney client and other privileges,” he said in a text message, referring a reporter to his tweet. “It will be given appropriate consideration.”
