President Trump’s lawyer said Thursday that US citizens would stage a revolution against their own government if the commander-in-chief were to be impeached.
“You could only impeach him for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that,” Rudy Giuliani told Sky News while in the UK for a golf outing.
Giuliani also told Sky that Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen was “a liar,” and claimed there was “no reason” for impeaching the president.
Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges in federal court in Manhattan on Tuesday, the same day Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted of eight charges of bank and tax fraud in federal court in Virginia.
Under oath, Cohen testified that he helped arrange hush-money payoffs to porn actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal at Trump’s direction.
The feds in court documents said they had other evidence, including documents and recordings, that confirmed Cohen’s testimony.
Trump has denied for months knowing anything about the payments to the pair, who allege that they had affairs with the president a dozen years ago.
But he was caught on a recording Cohen made discussing one of the payments.
Trump in an interview broadcast Thursday insisted he had done nothing wrong and distanced himself from Cohen, his personal lawyer and self-described fixer for more than a decade.
