Grand jury subpoenas former GOP Rep. Pete Sessions related to Giuliani and associates’ Ukraine dealings, sources say


(CNN)A grand jury has subpoenaed former Republican Rep. Pete Sessions on matters connected to President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, two Giuliani associates’ dealings with Ukraine and efforts to remove the US ambassador to Ukraine, sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

Sessions’ subpoena suggests that investigators are looking to gather information on his interactions with Giuliani, as well as with associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman — who were indicted for allegedly funneling foreign money into US elections — as the investigation into their Ukraine dealings charges forward.
CNN has reported that prosecutors allege Parnas and Fruman asked Sessions to help get the US ambassador to Ukraine fired at the same time that they were committing to raise tens of thousands of dollars for Sessions’ reelection campaign. Parnas made their request to the congressman in part at the behest of one or more Ukraine government officials, the indictment states.
The subpoena to Sessions came in the last few days after the indictment against Parnas and Fruman was made public, according to the source and another source familiar with the matter.
