US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani, a central figure in Ukraine's affair, investigated by federal justice in an investigation into some of his financial transactions. The suspicion is that of possible violations of electoral funding rules and illegal lobbying actions abroad. This was reported by the Bloomberg agency citing some officials of the US administration. One of them hypothesizes from the Manhattan federal prosecutor's office also the accusations for corruption of foreign officials and conspiracy.
The federal prosecutor's office investigates Giuliani of Manhattan once led by him, before becoming mayor of New York. The investigations – reports the Bloomberg agency – are focusing on its activities in Ukraine. Activities for which investigators had already been targeted by two partners of Giuliani arrested a few weeks ago, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, accused of having illegally brought together hundreds of thousands of dollars to US officials and political committees that supported Trump. If the charges alleged for Giuliani were to materialize they would represent a real tile for President Trump, especially if it is proven that the former mayor of New York acted behind the tycoon's instructions.
