President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani confirmed that he will be part of the former’s defense during the second impeachment trial and that he is considering “different opinions” regarding how the impeachment should be approached.
“I’m involved right now, that’s what I’m working on,” Giuliani told ABC News adding that his defense plan will focus on voter fraud allegations that have been rejected nationwide.
“They basically claimed that anytime Trump says voter fraud, voter fraud – or I do, or anybody else – we’re inciting to violence; that those words are fighting words because it’s totally untrue,” Giuliani asserted.
“Well, if you can prove that it’s true or at least true enough so it’s a legitimate viewpoint, then they are no longer fighting words.”
The former New York Mayor also said that Trump should move to dismiss the impeachment trial.
“If they decide to bring it to trial, he should move to dismiss the impeachment as entirely illegal. That it was the only impeachment ever done in what, two days, three days,” he said.
“We would say to the court, ‘You are now permitting in the future, basically in two days, the Congress can just impeach on anything they want to.”
