Dear Mr. Giuliani:

       Pursuant to the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry, we are hereby
transmitting a subpoena that compels you to produce the documents set forth in the
accompanying schedule by October 15, 2019.

       This subpoena is being issued by the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence under
the Rules of the House of Representatives in exercise of its oversight and legislative jurisdiction
and after consultation with the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Committee on Oversight
and Reform. The subpoenaed documents shall be collected as part of the House's impeachment
inquiry and shared among the Committees, as well as vith the Committee on the Judiciary as
appropriate.' Your failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena, including at the direction or
behest of the President or the White House, shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the
House's impeachment inquiry and may be used as an adverse inference against you and the

       The Committees are investigating the extent to which President Trump jeopardized
national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere with our 2020 election and by withholding
security assistance provided by Congress to help Ukraine counter Russian aggression, as well as
any efforts to cover up these matters.

       Our inquiry includes an investigation of credible allegations that you acted as an agent of
the President in a scheme to advance his personal political interests by abusing the power of the
Office of the President. A growing public record, including your own statements, indicates that
the President, you, and others appear to have pressed the Ukrainian government to pursue two
politically-motivated investigations. The first is a prosecution of Ukrainians who provided
evidence against Mr. Trump's convicted campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. The second relates
to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is challenging President Trump for the
presidency in 2020.

'See Letter from Jerrold Nadler, Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary, to Adam B. Schiff, Chairman, Permanent
Select Committee on Intelligence; Maxine Waters, Chairwoman, Committee on Financial Services; Elijah E.
Cummings, Chairman, Committee on Oversight and Reform; and Eliot L. Engel, Chairman, Committee on Foreign
Affairs (August 22, 2019).
