On Saturday, President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani snapped at Fox News host Ed Henry during an interview, accusing him of covering up news about Joe Biden and Ukraine.
“Are you afraid, Mr. Mayor that you could be indicted?” Henry asked, as the Daily Caller reported.
“Oh, wow, how long have you known me, Ed?” Rudy Giuliani said, adding, “Do you think I’m afraid? Do you think I get afraid? I did the right thing. I represented my client in a very, very effective way. I was so effective that I’ve discovered a pattern of corruption that the Washington press has been covering up for three or four years.”
“You should have jumped all over this in 2015 when this awful conflict was mentioned and it was hidden and suppressed by the Washington press,” Giuliani continued.
“But you know that the reality is, I’m embarrassing you because you didn’t do your job and I’m also going to bring out a pay for play scheme in the Obama administration that will be devastating to the Democrat Party,” he added.
Then, Rudy Giuliani warned that if the Mafia couldn’t kill him, the media wouldn’t either.
“I expected the moment I heard Biden’s name, I told my colleagues they’re going to try to kill me,” he said. “Because they’re going to kill the messenger. But damn it, the mafia couldn’t kill me, your colleagues are not going to kill me.”
The former mayor of New York City has taken center stage in the House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch accused Giuliani of pushing a smear campaign against her, telling Congress Friday, “Giuliani and the corrupt foreign prosecutor, had plans to quote, ‘do things to me’.”
The President has defended Rudy Giuliani, telling Fox News on Friday that his lawyer is a “great crime fighter.”
