House Democrats have subpoenaed President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for documents related to his interactions with Ukrainian officials, the AP reports. The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight and Reform panels announced the subpoena Monday as they examine Trump's efforts to have Ukraine investigate political rival Joe Biden and his family. Giuliani assisted in that effort. The Democrats have also requested information from three of Giuliani's associates. The committees are investigating the matter, which was a subject of a whistleblower's complaint, as part of an impeachment inquiry against Trump.

"A growing public record indicates that the President, his agent Rudy Giuliani, and others appear to have pressed the Ukrainian government to pursue two politically-motivated investigations," the chairmen of the three committees said in a letter, per CNN. "The committees have reason to believe that you have information and documents relevant to these matters." (More Trump impeachment stories.)
