NEW YORK — Rudy Giuliani’s interest in Ukraine was about more than just dirt on Democrats.

The former New York City mayor pursued a lucrative business deal with Ukraine’s former top prosecutor while pushing officials in the country to launch investigations into President Donald Trump’s political rivals, an attorney for Giuliani told the New York Daily News on Wednesday.

Robert Costello, who represents Giuliani on matters relating to a federal investigation in New York and the House impeachment inquiry, said his client was in talks early this year to perform legal services for former Ukrainian prosecutor general Yuriy Lutsenko and the country’s justice ministry.
