Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s ties to Ukrainian energy projects and whether he violated federal lobbying laws, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.
Bloomberg, citing three unnamed U.S. officials, on Thursday reported federal prosecutors in Manhattan were investigating Giuliani’s financial dealings that could include possible campaign finance violations and a failure to register as a foreign agent.
Citing people briefed on the matter, the Journal said two Giuliani associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, pitched a new company, and plans for a Poland-to-Ukraine pipeline carrying U.S. natural gas, to Ukrainian officials and energy executives earlier this year, and said the project had White House support.
