Federal prosecutors on Monday said they are "likely" to file new criminal charges in a pending case involving associates of Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump.

That effort, and Trump's participation in it, are the subject of ongoing impeachment proceedings against Trump in the House of Representatives.
