Federal prosecutors are investigating whether current and former Ukrainian officials unlawfully interfered in the U.S. presidential election by using Rudy Giuliani to spread misleading claims about Joe Biden.
The New York Times broke the news about the probe on Thursday, citing several people with inside information on the matter.
The criminal investigation, which began during the final months of the Trump administration, is being handled by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn.
The inquiry is separate from an ongoing criminal investigation into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, the newspaper reported.
Giuliani worked as President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer while he was still in the Oval Office.
Giuliani – who was pictured out in New York City on Thursday – has denied any wrongdoing.
