Rudy Giuliani's dealings in Ukraine, including meetings, work for a city mayor, and his finances have been scrutinized by federal prosecutors for the U.S. attorney's office in the Southern District of New York, the Manhattan office the former mayor headed himself as a U.S. attorney in the 1980s.
Sources told The Wall Street Journal that bank records have also been examined by the investigators, who have been questioning witnesses since at least last August about his alleged role in a conspiracy that involves two business associates arrested last week on conspiracy and campaign finance charges.
Monday, Giuliani, who remains as President Donald Trump's personal attorney, has denied any wrongdoing, said "they can look at my Ukraine business all they want," but he has not been informed of an official investigation.
Officials arrested two former Giuliani associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, last week, on an indictment accusing them of misrepresenting sources for hundreds of thousands of dollars in U.S. campaign contributions. They were released on $1 million bonds each, and are scheduled to be in court in Manhattan on Thursday.
Parnas and Fruman were reportedly helping Giuliani investigate the work Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, was doing in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden was earning $50,000 a month to serve on the board of a Ukrainian gas company when his father, while vice president under then-President Barack Obama, was attacking Ukraine anti corruption efforts.
