President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has warned that he has “insurance” should the president abandon him amid House Democrats’ impeachment investigation.
“I’ve seen things written like ‘He is going to throw me under the bus,’” Giuliani said during an appearance on Fox News Saturday. “When they say that, I say, ‘He isn’t, but I have insurance.’”
Asked whether he fears he’ll be indicted, Giuliani said, “How long have you known me? Do you think I’m afraid? Do you think I get afraid?”
The former New York mayor also accused his indicted associate Lev Parnas of lying about the role of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) in the Ukraine scandal.
He warned that Parnas “could make himself into another Michael Cohen” — a reference to Trump’s former lawyer who is currently serving a federal prison sentence for fraud and tax evasion.
WOW: @RudyGiuliani seems to suggest he has dirt that would prevent TRUMP from turning on him: “I’ve seen things written like ‘he is going to throw me under the bus.’ When they say that, I say ‘he isn’t, but I have insurance.”

The House is currently investigating claims Trump abused his office in orchestrating a pressure campaign, in which Giuliani played a key role, for Ukraine to announce investigations into his political rival, former vice president Joe Biden, meant to benefit Trump politically in the upcoming 2020 election.
