President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani denied knowing that he is being investigated for his Ukraine work.
“No, nothing but leaks, which has to tell you whether they are or are not investigating, it’s a political attack. Otherwise, why leak it?” Giuliani told CNN on Saturday when asked if he was aware of the reported inquiry. “If it’s an appropriate law enforcement investigation, you try to keep it secret so the subjects aren’t alerted.”
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have opened an investigation into Giuliani to determine whether he broke lobbying laws with his dealings with Ukraine. The investigation comes after authorities arrested two associates tied to Giuliani, who were helping him try to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
Trump defended his lawyer Saturday on Twitter, saying he is being attacked in a “one sided Witch Hunt.”
So now they are after the legendary “crime buster” and greatest Mayor in the history of NYC, Rudy Giuliani. He may seem a little rough around the edges sometimes, but he is also a great guy and wonderful lawyer. Such a one sided Witch Hunt going on in USA. Deep State. Shameful!

House Democrats opened up an impeachment inquiry into Trump last month in regard to his July phone call with Ukraine’s president. Democrats contend that the president threatened to withhold military aid to the country if they did not investigate the Bidens during the conversation.
