President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has done the rounds and conducted raging TV and magazine interviews in the aftermath of the House and started investigating the President's allegations.
Giuliani criticized the anonymous intelligence officer claiming that President Trump was abusing his power before praising himself for his alleged efforts to uncover alleged corruption in Ukraine: "I am the legitimate whistleblower," he said.
Giuliani called on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to represent his representative for Ukraine negotiations & # 39; step forward & # 39; to claim and admit that he worked for the ministry.
Rudy Giuliani reiterated earlier claims that the Foreign Ministry asked him to contact Ukraine to inquire about Ukrainian investigations, including Joe and Hunter Biden
Appears on Laura Ingraham & # 39; s Fox news show for the third night, Giuliani tried to deny reports that he was central to President Trump's attempt to press Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.
He insisted that he had in fact worked for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs during calls and meetings with Ukrainian government officials.
Ingraham seemed to be struggling to understand exactly what Giuliani meant during the sometimes hectic interview and why Trump's lawyer was acting on behalf of the Foreign Ministry.
She asked him if Giuliani acted as Trump & # 39; s & # 39; personal representative who contacts the state & # 39; or as a & # 39; kind of pseudo-government representative trying to fight corruption in Ukraine. & # 39;
& # 39; But as a lawyer I find it confusing. I just want to understand, it's confusing for people, & said Ingraham. & # 39; Did you act as the President's personal representative in contact with the state? Or did you work as a sort of pseudo-government representative who was fighting corruption in Ukraine? Where do they double roles? I think that will be confusing. & # 39;
Laura Ingraham, left, noted that people & # 39; extremely confused & # 39; about Giuliani's relationship with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
& # 39; I will tell you the facts, & # 39; Giuliani said, grinning.
& # 39; They asked me if I would take a call from [Ukrainian presidential assistant Andriy] Yermak and whether I would meet him and I did and I told them and the conversation was completely normal and there was no bribery, there was no extortion. Nothing like what Biden did. I didn't do that to the president and Biden did that. & # 39;
Ingraham then asked Giuliani about a report in the New York Times that released a post New York Times report that suggested Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was & # 39; unhappy & # 39; in Giuliani for his role in the Ukrainian scandal.
One of the allegations in the whistleblower's complaint also suggested that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & # 39; very concerned & # 39; was about Giuliani's communication with Ukrainian leaders.
Giuliani again wiped out all criticism and said the Foreign Ministry asked him to contact Ukraine to inquire about Ukrainian investigations, including former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.
& # 39; I actually think they should all congratulate me, because if I hadn't been there, no one would have discovered and confronted the massive corruption of the Vice-President of the United States, & # 39; Giuliani said, praising himself again.
Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, insisted: & It is impossible that the whistleblower is a hero and I am not. And I will be the hero! These idiots – when this is over, I'll be the hero & # 39;
& # 39; I am even a legitimate whistleblower. I have discovered corruption that has been covering this swamp in Washington for years. And his State Department, you know, asked me to do this. So Mike, if you are not satisfied with me, I am sorry, but I have completed my mission. & # 39;
& # 39; I have no idea if he is unhappy with me or not. Honestly, I don't care. I am the president's attorney, & Giuliani continued, despite the fact that he had insisted a few moments earlier that he was working for the Foreign Ministry.
& # 39; The reality is that Joe Biden has done everything these stupid fools accuse the president of not doing, and now they are doubling a whistleblower complaint. He is not even a whistleblower. A witness witness is not a witness under the law. The inspector general decided that the testimony was credible. How could he decide that unless he had some serious bias? & # 39 ;.
When it comes to Ukraine, Rudy Giuliani became the courier of President Donald Trump, the attack dog, the repairman and a self-described interference in the affairs of another country
When it comes to Ukraine, Rudy Giuliani became the courier of President Donald Trump, the attack dog, the fixer and a self-described mediator in affairs of another country.
His goal was purposeful: obtaining information & # 39; very, very useful for my client & # 39 ;.
Earlier on Thursday, the whistleblower of the intelligence community described Giuliani as a one-man-breaker, breaking things in a complex international landscape and leaving real diplomatic envoys for his & # 39; damage & # 39; to clean up.
In a separate interview with The Atlantic Ocean magazine Giuliani said: & # 39; I will be the hero & # 39; in this episode and those who now criticize him are & # 39; idiots & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I do not act as a lawyer. I act like someone who has devoted most of his life to straightening the government, & said an excited Giuliani in his interview with The Atlantic. & # 39; Everything I did must be praised. & # 39;
Officials revealed earlier this week that after the former Russia investigation by Special Counselor Robert Mueller was completed this spring, Giuliani turned his attention to Ukraine – including insisting on personnel changes at the embassy and to ask for meetings with those who represent the President of Ukraine , Volodymyr Zelensky, worked.
