“This is something Giuliani and his partner, as well as another lobbyist, have pushed repeatedly for Trump to address,” Haberman tweeted Wednesday. “[Reince] Priebus repeatedly blocked it, per two people close to White House.”

“No one has this time, she added.

Zarrab is a client of Giuliani, who was once a U.S. Attorney.

In 2017, Giuliani reportedly traveled to Turkey to meet with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan on behalf of Zarrab.

This is not the only time Giuliani’s name has surfaced in connection to a scandal involving Turkey.

Turkish-Iranian gold trader Reza Zarrab is linked to both Giuliani and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
