President Donald Trump’s television lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is unsure whether he will comply with a congressional subpoena.

The former New York City mayor was subpoenaed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Monday. The subpoena was in consultation with the Oversight and Foreign Affairs committee and was explicitly listed as part of an impeachment inquiry.

“I have received a Committee subpoena from three Committees of the House. It raises substantial constitutional and legal issues as well as attorney-client and other privileges. These and other issues must all be considered before a proper decision can be made,” Giuliani told ABC News.

It is unclear whether Giuliani has any attorney-client privilege.

Giuliani said in June that he was leaving Trump’s legal team.

Giuliani said Trump, who claims to be a billionaire, was not paying him for legal services, which may further complicate his attempts to claim privilege.

Trump lawyer issues bonkers threat to sue CNN over ‘unfair’ coverage of the president

Trump attorney Charles Harder on Friday sent CNN CEO Jeff Zucker a bonkers letter in which he threatened to sue the cable news network for its "biased" coverage of the president.

The letter, which was posted on Twitter by Trump 2020 chief operating officer Michael Glassner, accuses CNN of deceiving the public with its slogan of putting "facts first," and it outlines the many ways the president has been treated poorly by the network.

"Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by the so-called 'mainstream' media as the current situation," Harder writes. "My clients intend to file legal action against you to seek compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs, and all other available legal and equitable remedies to the maximum extent permitted by law."

GOP’s reliance on white Christians has made its extinction inevitable: conservative

Published

Demographic trends don't bode well for the Republican Party.

Writing in the Washington Post, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin points out that the GOP's reliance on old, white voters and Christians makes its eventual extinction inevitable. "After a while ... you run out of white evangelicals. That is precisely what is happening at an unexpectedly speedy pace," Rubin writes.

According to a recent Pew poll, there's been a 12 percent drop in the past decade of people who described themselves as Christian. "The ranks of the most progressive segment of the electorate, religiously unaffiliated ("atheist, agnostic or "nothing in particular’ ") have risen to 26 percent, a nine-point bump since 2009," Rubin writes.

In an angry tweet, the president bemoaned having to deal with House Democrats' impeachment inquiry at the same time he's trying to do unspecified "important work" for the United States.

"Can you believe I am doing this important work for our Country, and have to deal with Corrupt Adam Schiff and the Do Nothing Democrats at the same time?" the president wrote. "It was not intended to be this way for a President!"

Can you believe I am doing this important work for our Country, and have to deal with Corrupt Adam Schiff and the Do Nothing Democrats at the same time? It was not intended to be this way for a President!
