Presidential attorney Rudy Giuliani said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s impeachment would spark a revolution in the United States, saying the only basis for such a move is political.
> In an interview with Sky News Rudy Giuliani claimed there was "no reason" for an impeachment and called Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen "a liar".
> "You could only impeach [Trump] for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that," he said.
> Cohen admitted on Tuesday to paying hush money to a porn actress and a model at the request of a "candidate" - revealed by his lawyer to be Donald Trump - in order to influence the 2016 US election campaign.
Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, has said it is "absolutely clear that Donald Trump committed a felony" during the 2016 election, but Giuliani disagreed, saying Cohen’s testimony “completely cleared” the president of wrongdoing.
> "You have this Cohen guy, he doesn't know anything about Russian collusion, he doesn't know anything about obstruction, he's a massive liar," he said.
> Mr Giuliani, former mayor of New York, spoke to Sky News during a golfing trip at Balmedie on the Aberdeenshire coast, a course owned by Mr Trump.
