BREAKING NEWS: Democrats summons Rudy Giuliani as part of an investigation into charges against Donald Trump & # 39; s personal lawyer to hand over documents about his attempt to dig dirt on Joe Biden in Ukraine
House democrats have summoned Rudy Giuliani's personal attorney for documents related to his interaction with Ukrainian officials.
The panels of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform announced the summons Monday, while investigating Trump & # 39; s efforts to have Ukraine political rival Joe Biden and his family investigate. Giuliani helped with that.
They demand that he hands over the documents before 15 October.
The Democrats have also requested information from three of Giuliani's employees.
& # 39; Your failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena, including at the direction or by order of the President or the White House, constitutes evidence of obstruction of the investigation into the accusation of the House and may be used as a negative inference against you and the president, & # 39; & # 39; wrote three democratic presidents.
The committees investigate the issue, about which a whistleblower complaint was filed, as part of an investigation into allegations against Trump.
Giuliani vocally defends Trump against a whistleblower who has abused his office by pushing the President of Ukraine to assist his re-election campaign in 2020.

Giuliani says he would only cooperate in the investigation into the accusation of the House if his client agreed. Central to the investigation is Giuliani's attempt to have Ukraine conduct a corruption investigation on Joe Biden and his son & # 39; s association with a Ukrainian energy company. Trump repeated that request in a call from July 2019 with the President of Ukraine.

He has sent text messages from former US envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker who, according to him, shows that he undertook his own efforts in Ukraine at the request of the nation's diplomats.
Volker suddenly announced his resignation on Friday.
The writ of summons seeks documents from the former mayor of New York – and does not currently force him to testify for conference panels.
Giuliani gave several answers during an interview Sunday and said he would leave the decision to his client – Trump.
Trump told DailyMail.com that he would have no objection to Giuliani speaking to Congress.
& # 39; I would not collaborate with (chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) Adam Schiff. I think Adam Schiff needs to be removed, & Giuliani told ABC & # 39; s & # 39; This week & # 39 ;.
& # 39; So that's your answer? Are you not going to cooperate? "Hosted George Stephanopoulos responded.
"I did not say that. I said that I would consider it," Giuliani replied, saying that he would consult his client.
& # 39; If (Trump) decides he wants me to testify, I will of course testify – even though I think Adam Schiff is an illegal president, & # 39; said Giuliani.
