Trump’s personal and stellar lawyer Rudy G is out lawyer shopping just in case he might need one. Rudy’s decision to lawyer shop comes after two of his goons pleaded not guilty Wednesday on charges of “conspiracy to violate the ban on foreign donations to federal and state elections, making false statements and falsifying records to the Federal Election Commission.” One of their lawyers claimed the two goons have executive privilege relating to material in the case.
- A potential lawyer would represent Giuliani in a federal investigation looking into his ties to two Ukrainian businessmen who were recently indicted for illegally funneling money into U.S. elections to advance their personal business interests.
- Prosecutors say the two businessmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, illegally gave money to a Congressman in exchange for help in ousting former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
- Yovanovitch has become a key part of the impeachment inquiry into Trump because Democrats and career diplomats say she was removed so Giuliani could carry out a “shadow foreign policy” in Ukraine.
