Giuliani Faces U.S. Probe on Campaign Finance, Lobbying Breaches

Source: Bloomberg

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trumpís personal lawyer, is being investigated by federal prosecutors for possible campaign finance violations and a failure to register as a foreign agent as part of an active investigation into his financial dealings, according to three U.S. officials.

The probe of Giuliani, which one official said could also include possible charges on violating laws against bribing foreign officials or conspiracy, presents a serious threat to Trumpís presidency from a man that former national security adviser John Bolton has called a ďhand grenade.Ē

A second official said Giulianiís activities raise counterintelligence concerns as well, although there probably wouldnít be a criminal charge related to that. The officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter, provided the first indication of the potential charges under investigation.

Giuliani is a central figure in the U.S. House impeachment inquiry, which focuses on an effort led by the former New York City mayor to pressure Ukraineís government to investigate the presidentís political rivals. If Giuliani is charged or indicted, he could expose Trump to a new level of legal and political jeopardy, especially if heís accused of committing a crime on the presidentís behalf.

3. I think they may be ready to ditch him though

and throw him under the bus. We already saw the equivocating happen a few weeks ago when Parnas and Fruman were arrested and were tied to the Ghoul. He's too much of a liability now and there are apparently plenty more out there to take his place...

5. but he knows too much, he was in on tRumps crimes before the 16 election, he will sing like a bird

if he's facing prison time and pull the whole crime family down to save his butt. Also, tRump can just give him a blanket pardon.

6. I say it again. LOCK HIM UP!

His arrest would send a powerful message that the law is catching up to these criminals.

I think Rudy thinks his ace in the hole is co-conspirator tRump pardoning him.
