Former congressman Pete Sessions subpoenaed by grand jury investigating Giuliani and associates

Source: Washington Post



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.

2. Will be interesting to see if the other folks who took the dirty money

like FL. Gov. DeSantis or a couple (R) congressman here in PA, may get a subpoena too.

4. One can only hope. It's been nothing but disappointment for the

last couple of years. So I would love nothing more than these jagoffs to fall, one after the other.

5. And in this case, this is a Federal Grand Jury

not a House subpoena related to impeachment that they keep disregarding, so blowing it off ain't happening.

6. This just keeps getting better. How many republicans will remain standing after this is over?

And to think just weeks ago Speaker Pelosi was being bashed for not moving quick enough! She knows what she's doing, you can't rush a souffle, you just wind up with a huge omelet and egg on your face!
