As election looms, window narrows for action in criminal investigation into Rudy Giuliani and associates

  • New York (CNN) - With the presidential election fewer than 90 days away, federal prosecutors in New York face a narrowing window in which to take overt steps -- including bring charges -- in their investigation of Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, and his Soviet-born associates.
  • Since early last year, prosecutors with the US attorney's office in Manhattan have been investigating Giuliani along with businessmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman in connection with their efforts to oust the then-US ambassador to Ukraine and initiate investigations by the country into Trump's Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
  • The people familiar with the matter said prosecutors' questions appeared to relate more to the conduct of Parnas and Fruman and matters that were charged in their original indictment -- including a marijuana business venture and donations the two made to Republican candidates and a pro-Trump super PAC as an alleged effort to spread their influence -- than they did to Giuliani.
