Former Congressman Pete Sessions has reportedly been subpoenaed in connection to an investigation into Rudy Giuliani.
The Wall Street Journal reported tonight that a grand jury subpoenaed the former Texas Republican representative for documents related to his dealings with the president’s attorney:
Mr. Sessions’ knowledge of Mr. Giuliani’s dealings is a primary focus of the subpoena, the people said. Mr. Giuliani has denied wrongdoing and said he has had no indication his actions are being investigated by prosecutors.
There also is no indication that Mr. Sessions is a target of the investigation. Mr. Sessions is a longtime friend of Mr. Giuliani whose interactions with two of Mr. Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, was detailed in the indictment unsealed last week
Sessions spokesman Matt Mackowiak confirmed in a statement to the Journal that he is cooperating and will be “providing documents to their office related to this matter over the next couple of weeks as requested.”
Giuliani has come under increased scrutiny in recent days over the reporting that he’s being investigated for his business dealings, following the arrest of two associates last week.
Today Giuliani said he would not be cooperating with the House’s impeachment inquiry and parted ways with lawyer Jon Sale.
I will not participate in an illegitimate, unconstitutional, and baseless “impeachment inquiry.”
Jon Sale, who is a lifelong friend, has represented me for the sole purpose of analyzing the request and responding. At this time, I do not need a lawyer. pic.twitter.com/l0IR0ikEHD
