Rudy Giuliani Snubs Democrats’ Subpoena, Setting Up Contempt Showdown

Rudy has thumbed his nose at the Democrats, daring them to take action.

Adam Schiff and his fellow House Democrats warned the White House and their allies that any “stonewalling” of their “impeachment inquiry” would result in charges of obstruction leveled at those who dared to defy them.

Now it is time to put up or shut up for Schiff and Co.

A slew of subpoenas were strewn about Capitol Hill and Pennsylvania Avenue over the course of the last few days, much like an angler would cast out into every part of the pond looking for a fish.

It looks like very few from the White House are biting, however.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday said he would not comply with a subpoena issued by U.S. House of Representatives Democrats seeking documents as part of their impeachment inquiry into the president.

A letter from a lawyer representing Giuliani sent to a lawyer for House leaders called the inquiry illegitimate, and said the information sought by lawmakers relating to his work in Ukraine is protected by attorney-client privilege and executive privilege. The move represents the latest effort by Trump and those close to him to refuse any cooperation with the inquiry.

“In addition, the subpoena is overbroad, unduly burdensome, and seeks documents beyond the scope of legitimate inquiry,” Jon Sale, the lawyer for Giuliani, wrote.

Giuliani has been a central character in the evolving drama surrounding President Trump and Ukraine, with two of the former NYC Mayor’s associates having been arrested at Washington Dulles airport with one-way tickets abroad just days ago.

This refusal to comply could possibly irk Congress into using the powers granted them to change Giuliani with contempt, which would then allow the legislative to fine or even imprison Giuliani in order to guarantee his testimony.
