Rudy Giuliani used to be a very respected politician in America, even gaining the nickname of the nation’s favorite Mayor after his handling of NYC after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Giuliani is a far cry from the esteemed politician he once was, especially after taking President Trump on as a client after his last attorney was arrested and imprisoned.
Giuliani hit an all-time low when his role in the Ukraine scandal made headlines around the world, and now, he’s been hit with federal subpoenas demanding information from Giuliani and his associates.
The public is fed up w/ the lies of Pompeo, Giuliani, Mulvaney, Bolton, Perry & AG Barr. Our democracy is at stake & headed by an unhinged Prez, whose mental health has been questioned time & time again, while he has the codes to a nuclear catastrophe. Impeachment could save all

According to Wall Street Journal:
Subpoenas issued to people with ties to President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and his associates indicate a broad federal investigation into possible money laundering, obstruction of justice and campaign-finance violations, and suggest that prosecutors are looking closely at the work of Mr. Giuliani himself, according to people familiar with the matter.

In recent weeks, prosecutors have sent subpoenas and other requests to potential witnesses seeking records and information related to Mr. Giuliani.”
This spells big trouble for Giuliani, who has floated by, seemingly untouchable.

According to CNBC:
the subpoenas seek materials related to two pro-Trump groups, America First Action and America First Policies.
The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, which is conducting the investigation, already is prosecuting two of Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who are charged with campaign finance crimes.
The subpoenas offer the clearest indication yet that federal prosecutors are examining Giuliani's consulting work. Among the entities named in the subpoenas are Giuliani Partners, a firm founded by Giuliani in 2002 that had multiple foreign clients, including a city in Ukraine. https://t.co/3WpprOkIWG

Giuliani, a former New York mayor who previously headed that same Manhattan federal prosecutors’ office, has not been criminally charged.
Giuliani Tweeted this just a few hours ago:
With each day, #FAKENEWS and the NYT seem to be more and more synonymous!
