Giuliani unaware of probe into his Ukraine dealings

Rudy Giuliani, one of US President Donald Trump's personal lawyers, told the Financial Times that he has "no such knowledge of Manhattan prosecutors investigating" him.

His comments come days after two of his associates, who have made substantial donations to a pro-Trump fundraising committee and helped Giuliani investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, were arrested over alleged attempts to buy political influence on behalf of a Ukrainian official and a Russian businessman and subpoenaed the same day by the House of Representatives.

"I do know, however, that I am the president’s lawyer," the former New York City mayor replied when asked to comment on Trump's remarks concerning his position.

Earlier, when asked whether Giuliani still served as his lawyer, US president said "well, I don’t know, I haven’t spoken to Rudy. I spoke to him yesterday briefly. He's a very good attorney, and he has been my attorney," Trump noted ambiguously.
