At the center of the UkraineGate scandal is Rudy Giuliani, and it appears as though he intends to remain there.
The former mayor of The Big Apple has been working as President Trump’s personal lawyer as of late, and in doing so has found himself in the center of his longtime friend’s impeachment fiasco.
Giuliani has long been trafficking in strange theories regarding Ukraine, particularly as it pertains to the work of Joe and Hunter Biden in the tiny European nation, and those who believe President Trump acted inappropriately during phone calls with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky have blamed Rudy for much of it.
Despite this, Mr. Mayor continues to seat himself front and center in the media, now admitting that he’s prepared to “do demonstrations” during the coming Senate impeachment trial.
“I would testify. I would do demonstrations. I’d give lectures. I’d give summations,” Giuliani said Tuesday night when asked about the possibility during a New Year’s Eve celebration at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“Or, I’d do what I do best: I’d try the case. I’d love to try the case,” he said. “I don’t know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case, but if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented anyway.”
The former prosecutor said it had been 30 years since he tried such a case, “but let’s see if I can still do it.”
Rudy has been a bit of an annoyance for many in the Republican Party, who would rather stick to the nuts and bolts of the case and move on.
