Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has been subpoenaed to produce documents relating to his interactions with Ukrainian officials.

The request is part of the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump over whether the president pressured new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy during a phone call in July to investigate political rival Joe Biden, days after ordering a freeze of some military help for Kiev.

Mr Giuliani will have to produce the documents by 15 October.

In the subpoena Representatives Adam Schiff, Elijah E Cummings and Eliot L Engel said Mr Giuliani “admitted on national television that, while serving as the President’s personal attorney, he asked the government of Ukraine to target former Vice President Joe Biden”.

They added that Mr Giuliani also said he is in “possession of evidence – in the form of text messages, phone records, and other communications – indicating that you were not acting alone and that other Trump administration officials may have been involved in this scheme”.

Three of Mr Giuliani’s business associates, Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman and Semyon ‘Sam’ Kislin , have also been asked to provide documents and noticing depositions to the investigation.
