"I in actual fact comprise no longer seen any subpoena that looks for communications or documents from Mayor Giuliani or Giuliani Companions", mentioned Robert Costello, a attorney for Giuliani.
Trump in a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked him to launch probes into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden's $50,000-a-month gig on the board of directors of Burisma, a Ukraine energy giant, while his father was veep.
An unsigned document from mid-February reviewed by the New York Times laid out a draft proposal for Giuliani "to advise on Ukrainian claims for the recovery of sums of money in various financial institutions outside Ukraine". "Rudy has other clients, other than me", Trump said. Giuliani has previously said that they were helping him toencourage Ukraine to open an investigation into the Bidens.
The talks occurred as Giuliani met with Lutsenko in NY in January and then in Warsaw in February while he was also gathering information from Lutsenko on two topics Giuliani believed could prove useful to Trump: the involvement of Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine, and allegations that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, had interfered in the 2016 election.

Giuliani has publicly acknowledged he became paid $500,000 by Parnas' company, Fraud Guarantee, for genuine work, but he has declined to give miniature print about the precise services for which he became being paid. The negotiations came at the same time Giuliani was working with Lutsenko to dig up damaging information on Biden for the benefit of Trump.
"Prosecutors and F.B.I. agents in Manhattan are examining whether Mr. Giuliani was not just working for the president, but also doing the bidding of Ukrainians", The Times reports.

Giuliani has emerged as a central figure in the Democrat-led House of Representatives impeachment inquiry against Trump.
In February, Giuliani's company even sent signed retainer paperwork to the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice, seeking $300,000 for Giuliani's representation. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. But if there's nothing there I'll be the first one to say there's nothing there.
"We have always stated that we agreed to represent Ukrainian whistle-blowers", Mark Corallo, a representative for the law firm of Ms. Toensing and Mr. diGenova, said in a statement on Wednesday.
"No money was ever received, and no legal work was ever performed because the trip was canceled", Corallo said.
The indictment alleged Parnas and Fruman donated to a congressman to help advance their agenda.
Sources familiar with the matter told the Journal that subpoenas have been issued by federal investigators to potential witnesses as part of the investigation into Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas, two associates of Giuliani arrested in October on charges of illegally channeling foreign money into Republican election campaigns.
