President Donald Trump insisted on Sunday that he would have “no problem” with his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, testifying before Congress.
The president made the remarks while speaking to reporters outside the White House. Trump was asked if he would have “any problem” with Giuliani testifying about talks with Ukraine’s president about investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“I would have no problem with Rudy is a very straight shooter and Rudy wants to see the same thing as a lot of other people with respect to Ukraine,” Trump said. “Ukraine has had a tremendous corruption problem. Somehow they were involved in a lot of different things that look place in our country, and hopefully, it could be straightened out.”
The White House has been notorious for using executive privilege claims to prevent people close to the president from answer Congress’ questions.
Trump also commented on the possibility that he had been “spied on” during a conversation with Ukraine’s president.
“Well whoever it was or the whistleblower because it sounds like it’s not a whistleblower you can’t have that happen to a president of the United States,” he said.

CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield flattens Trump apologist for hilariously bad defense of the president
CNN host Fredricka Whitfield did battle with President Donald Trump's official apologist on the network, Jim Shultz.
Schultz quoted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who said that if Democrats want witnesses, then all witnesses should be available to be called. The problem is that Republicans want to call people that weren't even involved in Trump's obstructions of Congress. Republicans want to call Vice President Joe Biden and his son, there are likely some Republicans who want to call Hillary Clinton to talk about Benghazi again, and they'll likely search for reasons they can randomly call Democratic officials in Congress, who also had nothing to do with Trump's actions.
Trump is trying Middle East Peace plan 2.0 after the first one flopped
President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.
"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.
“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”
