Former White House counsel: ‘Congress, if you’re listening — subpoena Rudy Giuliani’
Former Clinton White House Counsel Jack Quinn on Wednesday called on Congress to force Rudy Giuliani to testify about a series of contradictions and false statement he has made while representing President Donald Trump.
“Rudy is a master at sowing confusion, distraction and denial,” Quinn told CNN’s Kate Bolduan. “He has even mastered the art of denying things he said literally on the record in quotes.”
“I do have a suggestion,” the former White House counsel continued. “Congress, if you’re listening subpoena Rudy Giuliani to one of these committee hearings.”
Quinn said that it is “really important that Rudy have the opportunity to testify under oath about all of the bizarre contradictions he has put in the water around this investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.”
According to Quinn, Giuliani “hasn’t acted as a lawyer” for Trump so he cannot use attorney-client privilege as a shield.
“And moreover, on so many occasions he has in ways that simply waive attorney-client privilege,” he added. “It would really advance the ball here if we could get Rudy under oath and try to pin down what he believes to be the truth about some of these things about which he is so in confusion.”
