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.

Breonna Taylor grand juror issues blistering statement accusing prosecutors of misleading public about the case
An anonymous grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case has issued a scathing statement about prosecutors misleading the public shortly after she was given legal clearance to discuss proceedings.
According to WLKY reporter Deni Kamper, Judge Annie O’Connell of the Kentucky 30th Circuit Court 2nd Division ruled on Tuesday that the grand juror will be allowed to talk about the case publicly, roughly three weeks after they accused Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron of misleading the public about the case prosecutors presented to jurors.
CDC reports 285,000 more deaths than a ‘normal’ year due to COVID-19 pandemic
A new report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that the coronavirus pandemic has left about 285,000 more people dead in the United States than would be expected in a typical non-pandemic year. Of the approximate 285,000 deaths, two-thirds were attributed to the virus.
The CDC study found that the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, has taken a disproportionate toll on Latinos and Blacks. The CDC also found that COVID-19 deaths hit 25- to 44-year-olds extremely hard with an "excess death" rate up by 26.5 percent in relation to previous years. This was the largest death jump among any age group in the study.
Trump can ‘rage from the balcony’ but he ‘will not succeed’: Dem super lawyer promises to protect the vote
President Donald Trump has a lot of options available to him when it comes to his attempt to steal the election. That doesn't mean they'll work, however.
In an interview with Democratic "super-lawyer" Bob Bauer, "The Circus's" John Heilemann listed a few scenarios for Trump trying to steal the election.
"We already have an electoral infrastructure -- a voting system -- that is not always adequately resourced or supported," Bauer explained. "You take that system, you layer on top of it a pandemic, you lay on top of that destructive behavior by one of the major political parties who espouses this kind of nonsense, and you add on top of that the internet-distributed misinformation plays, and that just means that the task that you have to address these contingencies is much larger than it's been as a structural matter any time in the past."
