Members of the US House of Representatives from the Democratic Party have asked Donald Trump's lawyer Rudolf Giuliani to provide all documents regarding relations with Ukraine. This is necessary for the investigation into the president's impeachment, Reuters reports.
"Our inquiry includes investigating allegations that you acted as an agent of the president in a scheme aimed at promoting his personal political interests by abusing the authority of the presidential administration", - the committee chairman said in a letter to Giuliani.
Democrats want to study correspondence, phone records, e-mails and private messages that could be related to "attempts by the president and his administration to put pressure on Ukraine to influence the 2020 presidential election in the United States". After reviewing these documents, Congress wants to find out whether Giuliani coordinated his actions with representatives of the Trump administration.
Congressmen want Giuliani to fulfill their demand by October 15.
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Eliot Engel, Intelligence Chief Adam Schiff and Supervisor Elijah Cummings also sent out letters with similar demands to businessman Semen Kislin, who had business contacts with Trump, as well as to three Giuliani's associates, including businessman Lev Parnas and investor Igor Fruman. These three people, according to various media outlets, helped to represent Giuliani in the leading Ukrainian political circles.
