The Justice Department on Sunday issued a statement saying officials would not have met with President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to discuss a client if they had been aware that two of his associates were under federal investigation, according to the New York Times.

Brian A. Benczowski, head of the DOJ’s Criminal Division, joined attorneys from the division’s Fraud Section to discuss a bribery case involving a Giuliani client with him several weeks ago, shortly before the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York indicted Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman in an alleged campaign finance scheme.

The article goes on to state the following:

“When Mr. Benczkowski and fraud section lawyers met with Mr. Giuliani, they were not aware of any investigation of Mr. Giuliani’s associates in the Southern District of New York and would not have met with him had they known,” Peter Carr, a department spokesman, said Sunday, according to the Times.
