Even though President Trump may seem to have immovable support from most congressional Republicans, some are growing uneasy behind the scenes over the role the Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, played in the White House’s alleged attempts to pressure a foreign government into investigating Trump’s political rivals, CNN reports.
According to several Republicans “who sit on the key committees,” Giuliani’s role in the debacle needs to be investigated further.
Speaking to CNN, Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) said that in regards to Giuliani, “more things keep coming up in the investigation” and whoever else was involved needs to be looked into.
Another Republican in the House, who was not identified, told CNN that we “have to see what [Giuliani’s] involvement is.”
…what has come to light had become a source of concern for some Republicans — namely the effort by Giuliani to pressure the Ukrainians to probe the Bidens and his effort to smear the then-US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch. Added to that was the revealing testimony from a former top Trump Russia adviser, Fiona Hill, who sources say testified that then-national security adviser John Bolton referred to Giuliani as a “hand grenade” who was going to “blow everyone up.”
Some Republicans who are wary of Giuliani say it’s not necessarily what he accused of that gives them pause, but “his brashness, his unpredictability and his ability to show up on one cable news show after another without much warning.”

July 4 re-opening still on after employee at private sports club owned by billionaire governor tests positive for coronavirus
After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.
Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
Why people want to see Donald Trump’s tax returns
