BREAKING: Pete Sessions subpoena for a *Grand Jury* investigating Ghouliani and associates

Game on.

Former Rep. Pete Sessions subpoenaed by grand jury investigating Giuliani and associates

A federal grand jury in New York has issued a subpoena to former Texas congressman Pete Sessions seeking records and other information on his interactions with President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, and two Giuliani associates charged last week with a scheme to funnel foreign money to U.S. politicians, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

The subpoena seeks records about Sessions’s dealings with Giuliani and two business associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who had been helping Giuliani investigate Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden. Parnas and Fruman were charged this week with violating campaign finance law in an ongoing investigation that has ensnared the president’s personal lawyer because of his relationship with the two men.

A spokesman for Sessions (R-Tex.) said in a statement: “Mr. Sessions is cooperating with the US Attorney from the Southern District of New York and will be providing documents to their office related to this matter over the next couple of weeks as requested.” A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan declined to comment. Giuliani did not immediately return a message.

The subpoena was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, which added that Giuliani seemed to be the “primary focus” of the subpoena. In the indictment unsealed last week, prosecutors said Parnas and Fruman schemed to exceed campaign donation limits in giving money to an unnamed U.S. congressman, at the same time that they were asking the congressman to get the then-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, removed from her job.

5. Yup.

Saw an article this morning that mentioned that. He was looking at running in a different district (Waco I believe - Bill Flores' seat since Flores is not going to run for reelection).
