Rudy Giuliani Says He Wants To Launch Pro-Trump Podcast

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has been contemplating launching a podcast of his own in response to the impeachment hearings. His podcast would involve giving his legal arguments on President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearings in the Democrat-led House of Representatives.

The publicly televised impeachment hearings started in the House on Nov. 13. Giuliani has tentative plans for recording and releasing the podcast, choosing a logo and uploading it on iTunes and other podcast distributors.

Giuliani was overheard discussing this in detail for an hour on Nov. 9 with an unknown woman at Sant Ambroeus restaurant in New York City. Two anonymous persons recorded this conversation surreptitiously.

The two provided it to CNN on the condition that their identities would not be disclosed.

This story was confirmed later by Giuliani’s spokeswoman Christianne Allen. “Many Americans want to hear directly from Rudy Giuliani,” Allen said, “He is considering several options, in consultation with Trump’s Lawyer Jay Sekulow and the legal team, regarding the best way to move forward. As of now, they have not decided on the strategy but are getting very close.”

Giuliani said that he wants to have four podcast episodes finished before the trial begins in the Senate. He also mentioned that he would write two op-eds for major newspapers. All this would counterbalance the publicly televised coverage of the impeachment hearings, according to Trump’s legal team.

But the podcasts could prove to be a double-edged sword for the former mayor as he is himself under investigation. His business dealings with his associates Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas are under investigation.

In the first op-ed, Giuliani suggested that he would argue that the president is unimpeachable. In the second one, he would offer his explanation for defending the case of the president.

Giuliani was on Steve Bannon’s podcast on Nov. 8 to discuss the impeachment hearings. The former mayor warned that those Democrats in the House who voted for articles of impeachment could lose their seats in 2020.

Giuliani has re-emerged after keeping a low profile for some time, which followed the arrest of his business associates Fruman and Parnas.
