Giuliani subpoenaed by House Dems for Ukraine docs in impeachment inquiry

The chairmen of three House committees subpoenaed President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday for key documents related to the Ukraine controversy as part of their formal impeachment inquiry against Trump.
“Pursuant to the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry, we are hereby transmitting a subpoena that compels you to produce the documents set forth in the accompanying schedule by October 15, 2019,” Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel and Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, all Democrats, wrote.

Giuliani tweeted Monday night, “I have received a subpoena signed only by Democrat Chairs who have prejudged this case. It raises significant issues concerning legitimacy and constitutional and legal issues including,inter alia, attorney client and other privileges. It will be given appropriate consideration.”

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, played a key role in seeking information from Ukrainian officials on former Vice President Joe Biden's dealings with the country, along with those of his son Hunter.

The committee chairs subpoenaed Giuliani after claiming he admitted to being "in possession of evidence — in the form of text messages, phone records, and other communications — indicating that you were not acting alone and that other Trump administration officials may have been involved in this scheme."

Fox News reported on Sunday that in addition to Giuliani, Washington, D.C., lawyers Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney, and his wife Victoria Toensing, worked alongside him. According to a top U.S. official, the three attorneys were working “off the books” — not within the Trump administration — and only Trump knew the details of their work.

“A growing public record indicates that the president, his agent Rudy Giuliani, and others appear to have pressed the Ukrainian government to pursue two politically-motivated investigations,” the chairmen wrote. “The committees have reason to believe that you have information and documents relevant to these matters.”

The subpoena for Giuliani came as the committees have investigated the president’s controversial phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July. House Democrats' impeachment inquiry has quickly expanded since Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., signed off on it last week, with committee leaders issuing subpoenas to Giuliani and key Trump administration officials in an effort to obtain testimony to bolster their case against the president.
