Giuliani Allies to Miss Document Deadline

Monday, 07 October 2019 04:14 PM

Two men who assisted in Rudy Giuliani’s effort to uncover damaging material in Ukraine about Democrats are unable to meet Monday’s deadline to turn over documents to three House committees, their attorney said.

John Dowd, the lawyer representing Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, wrote in an Oct. 3 letter to the House Intelligence Committee obtained by Bloomberg News that its request in a letter last week is “overly broad and unduly burdensome” and “beyond the scope” of the inquiry. Dowd said lawyers need time to review the documents for material that should be withheld under privilege.

Dowd asked the committees to amend their requests and said he would keep them advised about a “rolling production of non-privileged documents.” He represented Trump as a personal lawyer during the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

A committee aide said that if Parnas and Fruman don’t respond to the committee requests they will be subpoenaed.
