Schiff says he plans to subpoena Giuliani for documents

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday night he plans to subpoena President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for documents tied to the Ukraine scandal.

“We’re going to need evidence from Rudy Giuliani,” Schiff told “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley. “And it’s our intention as soon as first thing next week to subpoena him for documents. And there may very well come a time where we want to hear from him directly.”{mosads}

Schiff’s remarks come after he explicitly left the door open in an earlier interview on Sunday to having Giuliani to appear before his panel. “I don’t want to commit myself to that at this point,” he told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “We certainly have to do a lot of work to see what Giuliani has been doing in Ukraine.”

Giuliani has been linked to efforts to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. A whistleblower report ultimately led to the release of a readout of the call between Trump and Zelensky in which the president appeared to urge the Ukrainian leader to look into both individuals. Biden is currently one of the top candidates in the Democratic presidential primary.

The whistleblower’s allegations last week led House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into the scandal, which has since ensnared Giuliani and other individuals connected to the administration. 

Giuliani has repeatedly railed against the Democrats’ investigation. On Sunday, he told CNN he would be willing to testifying before the House Intelligence Committee after consulting with Trump.

Capitol Hill is also bracing for closed-door testimony from the whistleblower, whose lawyer confirmed on Sunday evening was still willing to speak with lawmakers. However, according to the lawyer, a date and time had not yet been set for the testimony.
