Trump’s lawyer is locked in a fight with Trump’s State Department, which Trump’s lawyer tried to win by tweeting incriminating evidence against Trump.
The State Department said that Rudy Giuliani’s claim that he was on a mission for them was false, so Rudy responded with a tweet:
Why does this text and date render the hearsay so-called whistleblower useless and not credible? If you get even one reason I might recommend you for Law School. Two and it’s LawReview. Answers later. Watch Laura at 10 pm. pic.twitter.com/fN1kOtclaM

The problem is that the tweet confirms, not that Rudy Giuliani was asked by the State Department to go to Ukraine, but that Trump roped in State Department officials in conspiracy with Giuliani to get dirt on Biden.
Rudy doesn’t seem to understand that he is making things worse for Trump:
Does Giuliani not understand that the involvement of Volker and the State Department make this scandal substantially worse? Or does he know that and just wants to take them all down with him? https://t.co/PNPiQK7RjP

Giuliani is providing evidence that proves there was a presidential abuse of power. The president’s lawyer is either trying to save himself from being Trump’s fall guy or he so obsessed with being right that he is selling Trump down the river.
