Trump Lawyer Giuliani Was Paid $500,000 to Consult on Indicted Associate’s Firm

Trump Lawyer Giuliani Was Paid $500,000 to Consult on Indicted Associate’s Firm

The letter echoes language the White House used last week in saying it would not co-operate with the inquiry that threatens Mr Trump's presidency.

The former NY mayor and personal lawyer to President Donald Trump confirmed in a text message that "no one" is representing him, even as the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan reportedly probes his dealings in Ukraine, which have also become central to the Democrat-led impeachment investigation.

Sale had been working for Giuliani after the House of Representatives subpoenaed Giuliani for documents related to the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

"In addition", wrote Sale, "the subpoena is overbroad, unduly burdensome, and seeks documents beyond the scope of legitimate inquiry".

The move represented the latest effort by Mr Trump and those close to him to refuse any co-operation with the inquiry. Pence, meanwhile, has rebuffed Congress' efforts.

Despite that, several USA officials involved in the matter who received subpoenas from the three committees have testified.

Giuliani told Reuters for the first time on Monday that the total amount was $500,000.

The two men, who helped Giuliani investigate former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden and his businessman son Hunter, were arrested last week over what prosecutors called a scheme to illegally funnel money to a pro-Trump election committee and other political candidates.

Mr Kent, who has spent much of his career fighting corruption in Ukraine and elsewhere, is the second career diplomat to testify as part of the probe after being subpoenaed.

CNN's Jim Acosta also reported, citing a source familiar with Hill's testimony, that she witnessed "wrongdoing" and tried to bring it to the attention of White House lawyers.

The New York Times reported last week that Parnas had told associates he paid Giuliani hundreds of thousands of dollars for what Giuliani said was business and legal advice.

Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine, on Friday accused the Trump administration in testimony of recalling her in May based on false claims.

House Democrats have repeatedly warned that refusing to cooperate would not only serve as more evidence of obstruction of justice - an impeachable offense - but also allow them to conclude that the withheld information would corroborate the allegations stemming from a whistleblower report that Mr. Trump solicited Ukraine to investigate the Biden family.
