Giuliani worked for foreign clients while serving as Trump’s attorney: report


Giuliani worked for foreign clients while serving as Trump's attorney: report Rudy Giuliani is reportedly still working on behalf of foreign clients months after joining President Trump’s legal team, raising conflict of interest concerns According to The Washington Post, the New York attorney is still working with clients through his security firm, Giuliani Partners, even though he said prior to joining Trump's legal team in April that he was not involved with the company

The Post reported that one of the clients reportedly is Kharkiv, Ukraine,  whose mayor was a prominent figure in the Party of Regions political party The newspaper notes the political party was at the center of a federal conspiracy prosecution involving Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort Iranian resistance group Mujahideen-e-Khalq, also known as MEK, is another client represented by Giuliani, according to the Post, which added that the group was reportedly labelled a terrorist group in 2012 and is operating in exile The president’s attorney confirmed that he has been receiving payments from the group over the past decade 

Lobbying experts told the newspaper that Giuliani’s work at the firm raises conflict of interest concerns and added that the lawyer’s work more than likely requires registration under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) That law,  passed in 1938, requires agents representing foreign powers’ interests in a "political or quasi-political capacity" to disclose their relationship with the foreign government in addition to information surrounding related activities and finances Giuliani told the Post that he never discusses his clients with the president and has turned away potential clients, including a Russian business
