President Donald Trump’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, may soon be relieved of his post after speculation at the White House last Nov. 28 about his dismissal as a result of an accusation that links him to negotiations with Ukraine’s chief prosecutor and the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice.
However, on Nov. 26 the president said in an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that he had not sent his personal lawyer to Ukraine on his behalf and that if he wanted to know what Giuliani did in Ukraine, he should ask him directly, according to The Hill.
Giuliani wrote earlier this month: “The investigation I conducted concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption, was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges, that kept changing as one after another were disproven.”
Last month Giuliani said in a tweet: “With all the Fake News let me make it clear that everything I did was to discover evidence to defend my client against false charges” and that “justice will prevail.”
In the event that Giuliani is dismissed, it is expected that his replacement will be former Rep. Trey Gowdy.
According to Fox News, Gowdy could not have been hired because of a statute that states former lawmakers cannot communicate with or appear before their former colleagues for a year after leaving Congress. Gowdy retired earlier this year and will be eligible to work for the president in January 2020.
Meanwhile, according to Newsmax, some of the observers of the impeachment against President Trump mentioned that Gowdy was “out of the picture” regarding becoming the president’s legal adviser. Now, however, speculation about him is back in the White House.
