Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani went on an angry tirade against Chris Cuomo on Friday after the CNN host played an old clip of him saying that presidents must comply with subpoenas to testify.
During the CNN interview, Giuliani claimed that back in the 1990s, he simply argued that former President Bill Clinton couldn’t ignore subpoenas to hand over documents as part of the Whitewater probe. The former New York mayor then said that he would never have argued that a sitting president must comply with a subpoena asking him to testify.
Cuomo then rolled the clip of Giuliani being interviewed by Charlie Rose in which Rose directly asked him about whether a president must obey a subpoena to testify — and Giuliani said he did.
Giuliani at this point began ranting at Cuomo and accused him of being “unfair” to him simply for playing back arguments he made 20 years ago.
“That’s really unfair!” Giuliani fumed. “That’s extremely unfair what you’re doing right now! This is the reason people don’t come on this show!”
Giuliani then attacked Cuomo for regularly inviting “ambulance chaser” Michael Avenatti onto his show, to which Cuomo replied, “What does that have to do with this?”

Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution
CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."
