Rudy Giuliani believes that President Donald Trump has been vindicated by Michael Cohen’s testimony and an impeachment would lead to a “revolt” by the American people.
The president’s lawyer spoke to Sky News about the Cohen’s guilty plea on eight criminal counts and his admission that he violated campaign finance laws by paying porn star Stormy Daniels “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office.”
“Is it inevitable now that President Trump will be impeached,” the former New York City mayor was asked by James Matthews while golfing at Balmedie on the Aberdeenshire coast, a course owned by Trump.
“Hardly,” Giuliani responded. “I think it’s inevitable that he won’t.”
He added that Trump has been “completely cleared” by Cohen’s testimony.
“You have this Cohen guy, he doesn’t know anything about Russian collusion, he doesn’t know anything about obstruction, he’s a massive liar,” he said. “If anything, it’s turned very much in the president’s favor.”
Giuliani denied the significance of a recording between Cohen and Trump prior to alleged “hush money” being paid, saying the recording actually shows that the president’s former personal lawyer is the one lying.
“The tape recordings say very clearly that Cohen did it on his own, didn’t tell the president until much later,” he said. “It demonstrates that Cohen is a liar.”
Asked about the possibility of impeaching Trump, Giuliani thought it would be “totally horrible.”
“There’s no reason. He didn’t collude with the Russians, he didn’t obstruct justice, everything Cohen says has been disproved,” he replied.
“You’d only impeach him for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that,” he said.
It seems many of these Americans – and some Brits – agreed with him.
If the Dems dare try to impeach Trump there would be a revolt to make the war between the North & South look like a picnic outing

Very reasonable and accurate statement Mueller investigation went after him on Russia yet trying anything now to remove a democratically elected president. Think on over 200million fire arms and a history of not taking shit from the establishment ??????

Damn straight Rudy. We won’t tolerate the Democrats over-turning the people’s will in favor of the Globalist Deep State. If they push too hard there will be HELL TO PAY! MAGA!

Leftist media stirring up “impeachment”? Over what crime? Because President Trump is different? Most successful president in my lifetime as far as getting things done. I think most American people have already impeached the leftist MSM. Keep talking MSM. Deeds not words!
