The recipient, who has not been named, must provide “all documents, including correspondence, with Rudolph Giuliani.
Federal prosecutors in New York have requested information about payments to Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, as part of an ongoing investigation, according to a Grand jury subpoena, Free News reported.
The document does not say whether Giuliani is suspected of breaking the law. The subject of the investigation is money laundering, fraud, campaign finance violations, perjury, obstruction of justice and violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
According to the subpoena, the recipient must provide “all documents, including correspondence, with Rudolph Giuliani, Giuliani Partners, or any person or entity” associated with his consulting company. The subpoena also requires all “documents related to any actual or potential payments or agreements with Giuliani.”
The summons was shown to Free News on the condition that the recipient would not be named. This is evidence that prosecutors are looking into Giuliani’s payments, as part of an investigation into the actions of two of his former colleagues – Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.
A spokesman for the US attorney’s office in Manhattan, James Margolin, declined to comment. Giuliani and his lawyer, Robert Costello, have not yet commented on the information. The lawyer of the Lev Parnas, Joseph Bondi, declined to comment. Todd Blanche, Fruman’s attorney, is not yet available for comment.
Free News could not determine why prosecutors are interested in Giuliani’s payments. In October, it is reported that in 2018, Giuliani received $ 500,000 to work on behalf of the Fraud Guarantee Company, co-founded by Lev Parnas.
