Giuliani: “This Frame-Up Is Worse Than McCarthyism”

Newsweek reports:

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani branded the impeachment inquiry worse than the McCarthyism of the 1950s and called it a “frame-up.” Giuliani is under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in part because of his activities in Ukraine.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York has hit multiple Giuliani associates with subpoenas in recent weeks, The Wall Street Journal reported. Among the potential crimes listed in the subpoenas were money laundering, fraud, making false statements and campaign finance violations.

It followed the indictment of two businessmen who have worked with Giuliani in his Ukraine pursuits—Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman—on allegations of campaign finance violations, specifically the covert funneling of foreign donations to American candidates.
