The Department of Justice seeks to distance itself from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani

The law enforcement agency claimed that Brian Benczkowski, the head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, and other officials would not have taken a meeting with Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, several weeks ago had it known federal prosecutors in New York were investigating two of his business associates.

Prosecutors in Manhattan reportedly informed Attorney General William Barr about the investigation of Parnas and Fruman soon after he was confirmed in February.
