Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani “joked” that he had “good insurance” in case President Trump “throws him under a bus” in the impeachment probe.
Giuliani told The Guardian that he believes that Trump will stay loyal to him.
“I acted properly as his lawyer,” Giuliani said. “I did what a good lawyer is supposed to do. I dug up evidence that helped to show the case against him was false; that there was a great deal of collusion going on someplace else other than Russia. And then I stepped on the number one minefield, which is Joe Biden, who is heavily protected by the Washington press corps.”
Asked if he was nervous that Trump would “throw him under a bus,” Giuliani replied, “I’m not, but I do have very, very good insurance, so if he does, all my hospital bills will be paid.”
His lawyer interjected to note,” he’s joking.”
GOP wants to throw Rudy under the bus to save Trump:
Top House Republicans told Axios this week that they plan to distance Trump from Giuliani to defend the president in the impeachment probe.
"[T]his is not an impeachment of Rudy Giuliani, it's not an impeachment of Ambassador Sondland. It's an impeachment of the president of the United States,” one Republican told the outlet. "So the point is as long as this is a step removed, he's in good shape. ... If it's a step removed from the president, he doesn't lose any Republicans in the House."
"Rudy will be cut loose because he was rogue,” another Republican added.
Giuliani faces 3 investigations:
Giuliani already faced a criminal investigation and a counterintelligence probe. On Thursday, Bloomberg News reported that he is now also under investigation for whether he violated campaign finance laws and failed to register as a foreign agent.
Former federal prosecutor Kenneth McCallion told Bloomberg that Giuliani could face charges related to “extortion or other crimes stemming from trying to get Ukraine to open an investigation into the Bidens,” adding that “such charges could implicate Trump in a criminal activity.”
“I would not be surprised if he gets indicted,” added former Assistant US Attorney Mimi Rocah. “It’s clear Giuliani is up to his ears in shady stuff and there’s tons of smoke.”
