President Trumps personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is considering suing Democrats for their role in the House impeachment probe. One day after house Democrats issued a subpoena for Giuliani and he is on the defense. He said he has been advised to bring a lawsuit against members of congress for violating the constitution.
Mayor Rudy Giuliani floated the idea of suing members of Congress over their actions relating to an impeachment inquiry into Trump, saying their actions are “worse than McCarthy.”
“I had a couple of talks with civil rights lawyers and a constitutional lawyer today and here’s what they’re recommending: that we should bring a lawsuit on behalf of the president and several of the people in the administration, maybe even myself as a lawyer, against the members of Congress individually for violating constitutional rights, violating civil rights,” Giuliani said in an appearance on Fox News.
He accused Democrats of violating Article II of the Constitution, which gives the president the “power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.”
They are doing extraordinary things. For example, they are violating — they’re interfering with the president in exercising his rights under Article II: The president of the United States conducts the foreign policy of the United States,” Giuliani said. “They’re calling foreign leaders. They are going to foreign capitals.”The Hill
“This is worse than McCarthy,” he added later, referring to former Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s (R-Wis.) search for communist supporters in the U.S. government in the 1950s.
