The desperation is growing from Trump’s legal team, as Rudy Giuliani is warning of a revolt by the American people if the president is impeached.
Sky News reported:
In an interview with Sky News Rudy Giuliani claimed there was “no reason” for an impeachment and called Mr Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen “a liar”.
“You could only impeach [Trump] for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that,” he said.
“You have this Cohen guy, he doesn’t know anything about Russian collusion, he doesn’t known anything about obstruction, he’s a massive liar,” he said.
Rudy Giuliani Isn’t Arguing That Trump Shouldn’t Be Impeached
It is important to understand what Rudy Giuliani is threatening. Giuliani isn’t arguing that Trump shouldn’t be impeached, but that if Trump is impeached the consequences will be dire. Trump, himself, made the same argument on Fox News when he said, “Well, you know, I guess it says something like high crimes and all — I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job. I will tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor because without this thinking, you would see — you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe in reverse.”
The message is that Trump shouldn’t be impeached, not because he’s innocent, but because impeaching him would lead to bad consequences with the country.
By using the term revolt, Giuliani was suggesting people in the streets and violence
Rudy Giuliani didn’t say there will be protest or outrage if Trump is impeached. He used the term revolt. A revolt is defined as a rebellion against the government. Giuliani is hinting at civil unrest and violence if Trump is impeached.
Trump can’t survive the scandals based on innocence, so he and his TV are trying to threaten America into keeping Trump in office.
