Giuliani: They're Doing Impeachment To Hide "Full Scope" Of Democratic Party's Corruption In Ukraine

|

The president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told reporters at the president's New Year's Eve party at Mar-A-Lago that if he were called to appear at the Senate impeachment trial, he would like to do far more than testify. Giuliani claims he has uncovered evidence of "vast" corruption in Ukraine involving the Democratic Party "not just in 2016, but for many years."

"And one of the reasons they're doing this impeachment is when the full scope of what happened in the Ukraine comes out, there are going to be an awful lot of Americans who participated in the Ukrainian corruption."

"I would testify, I would do demonstrations," Giuliani said about the trial. "I’d give lectures, I’d give summations. Or, I’d do what I do best, I’d try the case. I’d love to try the case."

"Well, I don’t know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case," he added, "But if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented, anyway."

RUDY GIULIANI: I believe that historically, this impeachment will not be called an impeachment. It will be called an illegal coup. I think it will go down in history to disgrace Nancy Pelosi and Schiff. There has never been a partisan impeachment. There has never been an impeachment based on something that isn't a crime. There has never been an impeachment that was put through with no witnesses or lawyers being allowed, threatening to put people in jail...

REPORTER: You just got back from Ukraine. What did you do?

GIULIANI: Well, a lot of things I learned I can't reveal yet, but what I learned is the corruption in Ukraine is vast and extensive, it highly involves the Democratic Party -- not just in 2016, but for many years, and one of the reasons they're doing this impeachment is when the full scope of what happened in the Ukraine comes out, there are going to be an awful lot of Americans who participated in the Ukrainian corruption. In fact, we shouldn't call it Ukrainian corruption, we should call it American-Ukrainian corruption.

The Bidens took millions of dollars laundered out of Ukraine. And the only reason they're getting away with it is because you in the press protect them and the prosecutors are afraid you're going to
criticize them. That's a double standard that has to end.

REPORTER: Tell us what you found out, what did you learn?

GIULIANI: Well, I'm not going to tell you what I found out until I have a proper forum to do it, but it is devastating.

REPORTERS: What is that forum? Is it in front of the Senate at the impeachment trial?

GIULIANI: We will figure out the right forum and it will come at the right time, and I don't have all the evidence yet -- I just met with a new witness yesterday. I can't tell you who I met with.

REPORTER: Does the president want you to testify?

GIULIANI: This is expanding. It will turn out to be a series of criminal acts involving the highest levels of the Obama administration, and it is the reason why the Democratic Party is in panic. What they did to the Ukraine is an embarrassment.

REPORTER: Does the president want you to testify in the trial? Would you testify in the trial?

GIULIANI: I would testify, I would do demonstrations. I’d give lectures, I’d give summations. Or, I’d do what I do best, I’d try the case. I’d love to try the case.

Well, 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.
