Giuliani Is Said to Be Under Investigation for Ukraine Work

Mr. Giuliani pronounced that since Democrats had questioned his business consulting for unfamiliar clients, his contracts categorically contend he does not run or act as an representative of foreigners.

Through his dual associates who also worked to reject a ambassador, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, Mr. Giuliani connected early this year with Mr. Lutsenko, who served as Ukraine’s tip prosecutor until August. Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman had formerly connected Mr. Giuliani to Mr. Lutsenko’s predecessor, Viktor Shokin, late final year.

Mr. Parnas had told people that Ms. Yovanovitch was stymieing his efforts to pursue gas business in Ukraine. Mr. Parnas also told people that one of his companies had paid Mr. Giuliani hundreds of thousands of dollars for an separate American business venture, and Mr. Giuliani pronounced he suggested Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman on a Ukrainian dispute.

Mr. Lutsenko had sought to relay a information he had collected on Mr. Trump’s targets to American law enforcement agencies and saw Mr. Giuliani as someone who could make that happen. Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Lutsenko primarily spoke over a phone and afterwards met in chairman in New York in January.

Mr. Lutsenko primarily asked Mr. Giuliani to paint him, according to a former mayor, who pronounced he declined since it would have acted a dispute with his work for a president. Instead, Mr. Giuliani said, he interviewed Mr. Lutsenko for hours, afterwards had one of his employees — a “professional questioner who works for my company” — write memos detailing a Ukrainian prosecutors’ claims about Ms. Yovanovitch, Mr. Biden and others.

Mr. Giuliani pronounced he supposing those memos to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this year and was told that a State Department upheld a memos to a F.B.I. He did not contend who told him.

Mr. Giuliani pronounced he also gave a memos to a columnist, John Solomon, who worked during a time for The Hill journal and published articles and videos critical of Ms. Yovanovitch, a Bidens and other Trump targets. It was misleading to what grade Mr. Giuliani’s memos served as provender for Mr. Solomon, who exclusively interviewed Mr. Lutsenko and other sources.
