Private citizen Rudy Giuliani will be requesting an audience before Congress in the not too distant future, according to the man he serves as personal attorney, on a pro bono basis, Donald Trump. “… he did get back from Europe just recently and I know — he has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress and say, and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice, and I hear he found plenty.” Here’s what Giuliani tweeted two days ago.
…to the US assisting Ukraine with its anti-corruption reforms.
The American people will learn that Biden & other Obama administration officials, contributed to the increased level of corruption in Ukraine between 2014 to 2016.
This evidence will all be released very soon.

Rudy and his henchmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were engaged in a shadow foreign policy scheme in Ukraine, and managed to topple Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, but expect that to be whitewashed entirely with finger pointing and more unsubstantiated allegations about Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Both-siderism and bullshit are Trump’s key weapons, a default position that he has to take, since his “defense” to impeachment — and everything — lacks any substance, let alone the depth he’s alleging Rudy will provide. But the pretense of both will be pretended and presented by Giuliani and by Trump’s newest right-wing media ally, OAN network. If you doubt for a moment Trump’s commitment to this delusion, take a look at what he tweeted about being “the greatest of all presidents.”
“Not only have the Democrats not advanced key pieces of legislation that would help the economy, but the polls, especially in early states, are showing that voters are tuning out.” @PeteHegseth They don’t want our greatest of all presidents impeached!

This is what 73 years of self-obsession and consequence-free bubble living, while eating junk food, spraying strands of hair over a bald pate with glue, and watching Fox TV gets you. Word to the wise. As to Giuliani, this may be his last stand. He’s been banned from Fox News and purportedly Jarvanka is out to get him. Either one of those circumstances is bad for a Trumpite, the two in concert are certain death. Rudy may need to grab some coffee filters and head out for his new career in obscurity. The next few weeks will be interesting, that much is certain.
