Rudy Giuliani denied claims by former national security adviser John Bolton, and kept the door open to his own possible impeachment testimony.

The former New York City mayor said he was still President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, but explained why he had not been added to his impeachment trial defense team, reported CBS News.

“Well, I am, but I can’t participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I’m a possible witness,” Giuliani said, adding that he’s ready to testify if he got White House approval.

Bolton revealed in his upcoming book that Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden — which Giuliani has been recently pursuing in Europe — but the president’s attorney called the former White House official a “backstabber.”

“He never said to me, ‘I’ve got a problem with what you are doing in Ukraine’ — never once, never winked, never sent me a little note,” Giuliani said. “That’s classic backstabber, so I feel I got a swamp character here. I find his testimony about the president pretty close to incredible.”

The Senate is considering whether to subpoena Bolton in the impeachment trial, and Giuliani seems eager to challenge the former national security adviser, who impeachment witnesses said described the president’s attorney as a “hand grenade.”

“If he came up to me and said, ‘Rudy, you’re a grenade that’ll blow up,’ and he shows his face, I would say, ‘I would never have the opportunity, because you’re an atomic bomb,'” Giuliani said.

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he would leave the White House if Joe Biden is officially confirmed the winner of the US election, making a further concession of defeat even as he railed against the "rigged" vote.

Trump has made an unprecedented attempt to defy the results of the election by refusing to concede, spreading wild theories about stolen ballots and launching baseless legal challenges that have been thrown out by courts across the country.

Answering his first questions from reporters since the November 3 vote, the president moved closer to accepting that he would serve only one term in office before Biden is inaugurated on January 20.

Masks that cover the mouth and nose have proven to be one of the most effective ways of containing the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the politicization of the issue continues to be a major Republican concern.

"Idaho Senate Republicans are setting up their agenda for the upcoming 2021 legislative session. As reported in the Post Register, one of their top priorities is to 'pursue measures in January to limit the governor’s emergency powers.' The immediate reason for this, of course, is Gov. Little’s anti-coronavirus measures," columnist Mike Murphy wrote in the Idaho State Journal.
