Report: Giuliani Admits Trump Is Still Conspiring To Steal 2020 Election
Rather than follow the advice of many urging him to keep a low profile as impeachment heats up against President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani — the president’s personal attorney — continues traveling the globe in pursuit of right-wing conspiracy theories and offering interviews to major media outlets.
During a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Giuliani spoke about his “secret assignment,” which found him in Ukraine, Hungary and Italy in recent weeks, and noted that Trump continues asking for updates on his investigations.
“There’s nobody in the whole world that could possibly think they are treating the president fairly,” he told the Journal.
At one point during the trip, Giuliani sent a text message saying, “Just having fun while Dems and friends try to destroy my brilliant career.”
Even before he had exited the plane on his return to the U.S., the president was calling Giuliani to find out what he learned oversees, he told the Journal.
“‘What did you get?’” he recalled Trump asking. “More than you can imagine,” Giuliani said he replied, noting that he would be putting his findings into a 20-page report.
The lawyer said Trump instructed him to brief Attorney General William Barr and Republican lawmakers on his findings. The president later appeared to confirm the instruction, saying Giuliani would soon be handing a report to the Justice Department and Congress, adding: “I hear he has found plenty.”
Giuliani speaks with Trump several times a week, he told the Journal — phone calls more often initiated by the president than the attorney.
Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against Trump on Friday: one for abuse of power and the other for obstruction of Congress.
