Trump ally Rudy Giuliani subpoenaed by federal prosecutors -source

January 11, 2023

The former mayor, who has served as Trump's personal attorney, did not respond to requests by Reuters for comment. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The source said the subpoena sought, among other things, copies of any retainer agreements between Trump and Giuliani, or the Trump campaign and Giuliani, and records of payments and who made those payments. In December, a District of Columbia attorney ethics committee said Giuliani violated at least one attorney ethics rule in his work on a failed lawsuit by Trump challenging the 2020 election results.
