Rudy Giuliani blasted House Democrats on Monday after it was announced that three House committees are launching a broad investigation into whether President Donald Trump and Giuliani sought to exert pressure on the Ukrainians to target former Vice President Joe Biden.
Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, questioned the credibility of their probe and accused Dems of waging a politically motivated inquiry that he equated to harassment.
“This is not legitimate, it is harassment — a political operation by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), not by Congress,” Giuliani said during a phone interview with The Hill. “They need three committees to do this and there is only one of me.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel in joint letters demanded documents from the White House and State Dept. earlier Monday related to whether Trump and his lawyer sought to pressure Ukraine to target Biden.
They set September 16 as the deadline for documents to be turned over.
Giuliani vowed to take Democrats to court and use the opportunity to expose Biden and the “corrupt Washington press” corps, which he claimed had been shielding Biden.
“I’m going to use this as an opportunity to highlight what phonies they are — trying to intimidate and harass me,” he said, while describing the Democratic probe as a “little pimple” compared to the “major massive scandal” involving Biden and Ukraine.
