Rudy Giuliani said Sunday morning that he would not cooperate in the investigation of the House Intelligence Committee as long as Adam Schiff is chairman.
The President's personal lawyer suggested that he would be more than happy to testify and cooperate with the House Commission that is investigating Trump's relationship with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelesnky, as long as someone does not want to hang up the President & # 39; was in charge of the committee.
& # 39; I would not collaborate with Adam Schiff, & # 39; Giuliani claimed on Sunday morning at ABC's this week. & # 39; I think Adam Schiff should be removed. & # 39;
Giuliani said he would cooperate & # 39; if they remove Adam Schiff, if they deploy a neutral person who has not pre-assessed the case. If they put someone in – a democrat who has not yet expressed an opinion. & # 39;
& # 39; If I had a judge in a case, and he had already announced: & # 39; I'm going to accuse & # 39; if he went ahead and did a very false episode, wouldn't I move to revoke that judge? & # 39; Giuliani argued.
Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that he would not cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee as long as representative Adam Schiff was chairman. & # 39; I would not collaborate with Adam Schiff, & # 39; said Giuliani. & # 39; I think Adam Schiff should be removed & # 39;
But Schiff, who also spoke to ABC on Sunday morning, said the committee had not yet decided whether it would call Giuliani to testify. & # 39; We want to work out the facts further, then we will decide whether it would be productive to bring in a witness like Rudy Giuliani, & # 39; said Schiff
He said he would consider working with it, even as the Californian democratic representative, whom he was an & # 39; illegal president & # 39; would lead the committee's investigation and claim that he was after the will of his client.
& # 39; I will consider [cooperating], & # 39; Giuliani admitted, but added that he would only do that if his client – the president – decides he wants him to testify.
& # 39; I have to be guided honestly by my client. I'm a lawyer, it's his privilege, not mine, & he said. & # 39; If he decides he wants me to testify, I will of course testify, even though I think Adam Schiff is an unlawful chairman because he has already anticipated the matter. & # 39;
The former mayor of New York said that if the probe & # 39; fair & # 39; was taxed by someone who has not yet given judgment.
& # 39; If we want honesty here, we need someone who is in charge of that committee with an open mind. Not someone who wants to hang up the president, who said I have proof of Russian collusion. Adam, where's the evidence? & # 39; he acted against the committee chairman.
Schiff spoke to George Stephanopoulos of ABC immediately after Giulani and denied anticipating the case, and added that he was not even sure if the lawyer would be summoned to testify.
& # 39; We want to elaborate on the facts, then we will decide whether it would be productive to bring in a witness like Rudy Giuliani, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; Well, he seems to think I'm the judge and the jury here, & # 39; Schiff said about Giuliani's assumptions. & # 39; My role is to do the research, my role is to make sure the facts come out. If it were to lead to a removal – and I do not want to put ourselves too far ahead – then it is the Senate that decides whether the President's behavior should lead to his resignation. & # 39;
& # 39; I intend to hold the President responsible, I intend to conduct a thorough investigation, and what we have already seen is harmful, & # 39; he went on. & # 39; Because what we have seen in that call record is a president of the United States who uses the full weight of his office, the country commits itself to America for its defense … to try that trade leader to produce dirt on his opponent, and interfere with our elections. It is hard to imagine a series of facts that are more damning than that. So yes, we will sort that out to the bottom. & # 39;
The president was guilty of Schiff, who was reluctant to call for an eviction, after the president of the intelligence service had turned the switch earlier this week.
The changeover came when whistleblower accusations emerged that on 25 July the president was pressuring Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelesnky to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden for possible corruption.
Trump released an unwritten transcript of the call on Wednesday, which he said would prove there was no cheating. But the transcript showed that the president insisted on an investigation.
During a hearing with Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire this week, Schiff put words into the President's mouth in what he said was meant to be a & # 39; parody & # 39; of the transcript.
& # 39; I have a favor that I want from you, & # 39; Schiff read out loud on Thursday without announcing that he was about to read from a parody of the call. & # 39; And I'm only going to say this seven times, so you better listen. I want you to make up for my political opponent, you understand? A lot here and there. & # 39;
The president burst out on Twitter.
& # 39; He was desperate and he was caught & # 39 ;, Trump wrote. & # 39; Adam Schiff therefore lied to Congress and tried to deceive the American public. He has been doing this for two years. I call on him to resign immediately from Congress on the basis of this fraud! & # 39;
