Rudy Giuliani sees an upside to the Russia probe for Republicans: more angry Donald Trump voters who will turn out for the November midterms to save his presidency. “It has his people much more excited now than before,” the former New York mayor, who last month took on a new assignment as the president’s personal attorney, said in an interview on Monday.
While shying away from outright praise of Democrats, Giuliani said the party was smart to steer its own midterm election strategy away from discussing a potential Trump impeachment battle. “They’ve backed off that because they realize that could really, really backfire on them,” Giuliani said. “I don’t think anywhere near a majority of the American people want to see an impeachment interrupt the good work the president is doing.”
