Despite assurances by Trump surrogates like Rudy Giuliani that the Mueller probe is wrapping up, the investigation appears more sweeping than ever.

"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.

Rudy Giuliani’s bank records part of investigation by federal prosecutors: report

Published

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is having his banking records scrutinized as part of the federal criminal investigation into his dealings in the Ukraine.

The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.
