Giuliani Investigation Intensifies, Focusing More on Plan to Advance Ukraine Interests in the US

Federal prosecutors leading the investigation into Rudy Giuliani’s ties to Ukraine believe the former New York City mayor and two others may have violated the law over an agreement that would have seen them win lucrative contracts.

Giuliani and two attorneys who worked closely with him, Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, “probably” violated federal transparency laws that require Americans working for foreign governments or interests to register as foreign agents with the US justice department and fully disclose details of each such action they undertook on behalf of the foreign interests, according to federal investigators.

A new report in The Guardian says that federal prosecutors in the southern district in New York (SDNY) have compiled a list of more than two dozen specific acts by Giuliani, Toesning and DiGenova as to how to advance the personal and political interests of a group of Ukrainian prosecutors and political factions in Ukraine with which they were aligned.

Prosecutors consider each one of those acts to be crucial evidence of a potential violation of law, according to sources close to the investigation who spoke under condition of anonymity to The Guardian.

The Guardian has also learned that federal investigators have uncovered extensive, detailed plans devised by one Ukrainian prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, and approved by Giuliani, by which they would announce and promote an investigation of Joe Biden and his son Hunter, in Ukraine, to help boost Trump’s chances of re-election. Investigators as early as last year obtained emails received and sent by Lutsenko describing various elements of the scheme, according to the Guardian’s report.

Trump and conservative news outlets continue to make the same baseless allegations that began in 2019 which have been thoroughly debunked. The manufactured conspiracy contends that Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its prosecutor general for investigating a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, because his surviving son, Hunter Biden, sat on their board at the time. Trump claimed, without evidence, that Joe Biden sought the firing of the prosecutor so his son would escape scrutiny. Trump hoped to make the allegations a centerpiece of his 2020 re-election campaign. Instead, the scrutiny became more focused on Trump and his cronies.
