Giuliani has said he went to Ukraine at the behest of Trump, carrying out an investigation "concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption".
"I am defending my client the best way I know how", Giuliani told ABC News "This Week" in late September.
Giuliani said in a tweet last month: "The investigation I conducted concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption, was done exclusively as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges, that kept changing as one after another were disproven".
Spokesman Mark Corallo confirmed those discussions included possible representation of Lutsenko.
"He can go along with that for a while but at some point that means that Giuliani is essentially being implicated in a bribery conspiracy by the president of the United States".
In order top believe that now, you have to think that no one in the Ukrainian government told Zelensky of the military aid hold-up either before or after the July 25 call. Giuliani ultimately canceled the trip after political blowback. Trump all as soon as more and all as soon as more told diplomats to consult with GIuliani regarding Ukraine. "Giuliani's your personal lawyer". "I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General".
"No, I didn't direct him, but he's a warrior, Rudy's a warrior". He added that Giuliani "possibly saw something".
"Giuliani is in this very precarious position for a lot of reasons", Rocah said on MSNBC.
WeWork to axe 2,400 jobs after SoftBank buyout - media reports
WeWork new boss has warned staff last month to expect cuts as companies refocus on the business "core" of rented office space. The first big wave of layoffs hit about 2,400 WeWork employees Thursday, the company told The Wall Street Journal .
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) on Monday explained away his request for records of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's work in Ukraine by saying "that's the way it works in politics". "And in my way of thinking, it is totally corrupt", Trump said.
The president's own conversations suggest he had entrusted Giuliani with helping to carry out the campaign to pressure the Ukrainians.
By March, the proposal had been updated to specify that the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice would hire diGenova and Toensing for services, but that Lutsenko's office would pay Giuliani Partners $300,000.
Mr. Trump told Zelensky on that call: "Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man". I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy.
"He never did and I never did", Giuliani advised the outlet. I never met him. "This speaks to why we need USA government officials advising the President".
Ms. Toensing proposed that, for $25,000 a month, she and her partner represent Mr. Shokin "for the goal of collecting evidence regarding his March 2016 firing as Prosecutor General of Ukraine and the role of then-Vice President Joe Biden in such firing, and presenting such evidence to US and foreign authorities".
An attorney for a prosperous Republican donor named Charles Gucciardo told CNN that Gucciardo in actual fact paid Giuliani's firm on behalf of Parnas' company.
