Former New York City Mayor and current Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was hit with a subpoena requesting a number of documents as House Democrats pursue an impeachment inquiry, Deadline reports.
“In seeking the documents by an October 15 deadline, three Democratic committee chairmen cite comments that he made in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo,” Deadline reports.
The report quotes the committee chairs’ letter to Giuliani saying: “During an interview on CNN, Chris Cuomo asked you, ‘So did you ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?’ You responded, ‘Of course I did.’ In addition to this stark admission, you stated more recently that you are in possession of other evidence — in the form of text messages, phone records and other communications — indicating that you are not alone and that other Trump administration officials may have been involved in this scheme.”
Deadline notes that Cuomo interviewed Giuliani on Sept. 19, “in an interview that quickly went viral for the way that Giuliani rattled off a series of unsubstantiated claims against Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.”
Deadline adds: “The Democrats are seeking a wide range of documents going back to January 20, 2017, the day Trump took office. They also are seeking documents and depositions with three of Giuliani’s associates — Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman and Semyon ‘Sam’ Kislin.”
