Giuliani Lawyers Up As Impeachment Probe Deepens

Politico reports:

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, announced Wednesday he’d obtained new legal representation as part of the House impeachment inquiry and amid federal scrutiny of his business dealings in Ukraine.

Giuliani’s decision to hire new lawyers came even as he maintains he did nothing illegal in his efforts to pressure Ukrainian officials to open investigations that could have benefited Trump politically.

The move comes as House investigators have begun releasing damaging closed-door testimony from State Department officials implicating Giuliani in the White House’s decision to block military aid for Ukraine unless it announced investigations into the Biden family and 2016 election interference.
