Rudy Giuliani regularly says that he is representing President Donald Trump on a pro bono basis -- but House Democrats believe that someone out there is actually picking up the tab for his services.
The Daily Beast reports that Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) is demanding that the former New York mayor explain who has been funding his overseas adventures to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, since Giuliani isn't a government employee and he says he isn't being paid directly by Trump.
"Rudy needs to disclose his clients for the Ukraine work," Maloney said. "He’s up to his neck in criminals and dirty money. Was he playing the President to get himself paid? Seems there’s no honor among thieves."
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Giuliani claimed that his work in Ukraine was being done entirely on a pro bono basis, and he said that the costs for his multiple trips "were covered by private clients for separate work that happened to correspond with his Ukraine portfolio."
Giuliani's business dealings are now reportedly under scrutiny from law enforcement officials after his two Ukraine henchmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested this week for allegedly funneling money from a Russian businessman to U.S. political campaigns.
