President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Guiliani, who is at the center of the Ukraine scandal is under investigation for failing to register as a foreign agent and campaign finance violations.
According to The Daily Caller:
Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, is reportedly being investigated for campaign finance violations and failing to register as a foreign agent.
Three anonymous officials told Bloomberg that the former New York City mayor’s facilitation of communications between the Trump administration and Ukraine forced the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office to open the probe.
“I would not be surprised if he gets indicted,” former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah told Bloomberg. “It’s clear Giuliani is up to his ears in shady stuff and there’s tons of smoke.”
The same attorney’s office brought campaign finance charges against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two of Giuliani’s foreign-born associates, for conspiring “to circumvent the federal laws against foreign influence by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and State office so that the defendants could buy potential influence with candidates, campaigns, and the candidates’ government.”
As the Bloomberg report noted the Giuliani situation could present the biggest issues yet for President Trump with Giuliani being both his lawyer and operative.
