Unlike former VP, and Democratic presidential hopeful, Joe Biden, another figure at the center of Donald Trump’s impeachment – Rudy Giuliani – says he would testify before the Senate if called to do so.
Speaking to reporters at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on New Year’s Eve, Giuliani said he would be willing to testify in the Senate’s upcoming impeachment trial. The president’s personal attorney went on to say he would love to try the case because it would allow him to conduct demonstrations, give lectures and provide summations.
However, no request, or subpoena to testify has been made, and at this time, neither is Giuliani expected to be a part of the president’s impeachment defense team.
The former New York City Mayor’s comments came after Sen. Lindsey Graham invited Giuliani to come before the Senate to testify on what he found during his fact-finding mission to Ukraine. During a recent interview, Graham said he would be glad to talk with Giuliani so he can tell Congress what the attorney uncovered during his trip.
In recent weeks, Giuliani traveled to Europe, alongside an investigative team from One America News, to gather documents and testimonies from top Ukrainian officials.
He has been putting together a report on Biden family corruption in Ukraine. He said Joe Biden used his title as Vice President to protect his son Hunter’s scheme to launder millions of dollars in dirty money from Ukraine into the U.S.
The Senate impeachment trial is expected to begin sometime in the weeks ahead.
