  • Trump's Personal Lawyer Won't Cooperate With Impeachment Probe Report

"Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the different to come support sooner than the Senate Judiciary Committee to characterize the Committee of his concerns".

Interested in Impeachment Inquiry?

The White House has not commented on his remarks. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) plans to "inquire" into long-debunked and never remotely substantiated allegations that formed the basis of political dirt that President Trump tried to coerce Ukraine into manufacturing. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

In response to Graham's proposal, Harris tweeted, "Good".

When asked by CNN if he would accept the invite, Giuliani appeared to decline, answering "Love Lindsey, but I am still a lawyer and I will have to deal with privilege". He has not yet responded to the subpoenas and has cited "substantial constitutional and legal issues" that must be considered deciding how to respond.

Graham accused House Democrats of conducting a one-sided investigation, but it's not clear yet how extensive his probe will be.

Text messages between top US diplomats that were released by the House Intelligence Committee have corroborated the whistleblower's claim that Giuliani was involved in Trump's push to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate the Bidens.

In an interview with the Washington Post published Tuesday, Giuliani said that he wouldn't appear before the House Intelligence Committee and "can't imagine" Trump administration officials would do so either.

Other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, though, have previously told ABC News they do not want to hear from Giuliani.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said having Giuliani testify before the panel would give lawmakers "an opportunity to help separate fact from fiction".

The chairmen of the three House committees that have subpoenaed Giuliani have given him until October 15 to respond to them, but he says he's ready to challenge them on the summons.

But Giuliani, who for months has been promoting unsubstantiated claims that Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were mired in corrupt dealings in Ukraine, was himself recently named as a possible co-conspirator in an alleged "shakedown" of a Ukrainian gas company, according to a report from The Associated Press.

Ukraine's former president, Petro Poroshenko, has said that Biden never asked him to open or close any criminal cases, adding to the list of Ukrainian officials saying they saw him do nothing improper involving his son.

The South Carolina senator said there had been many "improprieties" surround the firing of former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

US officials, the whistleblower wrote, were "deeply concerned" by Giuliani's communications with Ukraine.
