Sources familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that since at least August witnesses were being questioned about Giuliani in his work for a Ukrainian mayor, his finances and meetings relating to the country.

The Journal's report extended last week's reports that federal prosecutors are considering whether the president's private lawyer has violated the federal government's lobbying laws.
When CNN Giuliani asked if he knew that prosecutors were investigating other parts of his Ukrainian business, he replied, "No, I do not think so, but my bank records are fine."
Giuliani was named as a central figure in the whistleblower report, which now triggered an impeachment investigation against Trump in the House of Representatives.
