Washington Post: Senate Democrats ask Justice Dept. to review Giuliani's work for foreign clients

Seven Senate Democrats asked the Department of Justice to examine Rudolph W. Giuliani’s work for foreign clients Thursday, arguing that recent reports on his activities “raise significant concerns” about whether he is improperly lobbying government officials as President Trump’s personal attorney.  

The letter was written by Democratic Sens. Tom Udall (N.M.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), Jeff Merkley (Ore.) and Richard J. Durbin (Ill.).

“As President Trump’s personal attorney, Mr. Giuliani communicates in private with the President and his senior staff on a regular basis,” the senators wrote in the letter. “Without further review, it is impossible to know whether Mr. Giuliani is lobbying U.S. government officials on behalf of his foreign clients.”
