Subpoenas have been issued to people with ties to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to seek information on his consulting firm and on a company co-founded by Lev Parnas, an associate of the former mayor's who had paid him for legal and business advice. 

According to The Wall Street Journal, the subpoenas contain a list of several potential charges that are being considered, including conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of justice, money laundering, and making false statements to the federal government. 

Materials are also being sought concerning America First Action and American First Policies. A spokeswoman for the groups, Kelly Sadler, said they have offered their cooperation, but neither was issued a subpoena.

Giuliani also told the Journal he has not been directly contacted and claimed that there is a "concerted effort to spread as many lies about me as possible, to destroy my reputation so that I'm not credible when I continue to reveal all of the massive evidence of criminality by the Bidens."

Parnas, along with another of Giuliani's associates, Igor Fruman, allegedly helped Giuliani pressure Ukraine into investigating ex-Vice President Joe Biden.

Both Fruman and Parnas, have pleaded not guilty to campaign finance violations, after having been arrested in October. According to the Journal, Parnas had asked at least two of those receiving summonses to invest in a false insurance firm. One did not give any money, but the other invested after Parnas outlined a plan to obtain a $20 million federal grant, which Giuliani said he knows nothing about.
