Rudy Giuliani said he will not testify in Adam Schiff’s kangaroo court unless Pelosi removes Schiff from the lead role in the impeachment inquiry.

In a damning indictment of Schiff’s weakness and lack of leadership, Rudy dared Adam to hold him in contempt.

That Adam has not even taken that step shows you he is in over his head. That said, if Adam holds Rudy in contempt so what?

Adam has little real power to enforce his contempt charge and unless Adam grows a pair and tries to manufacture some power, however bogus it may be, he will keep losing.

From The Hill:

President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Tuesday that he would not testify before the House Intelligence Committee unless committee members voted to remove Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) from the panel’s chairmanship.

In an interview with The Washington Post, the former mayor of New York City said he was taking the White House’s position that Schiff’s congressional committee was illegitimate.

He added the Trump administration would soon release a formal statement concerning the Intelligence Committee.

“I wouldn’t testify in front of that committee until there is a vote of Congress and he is removed,” Giuliani said, referring to Schiff.

“Let them hold me in contempt. We’ll go to court. We’ll challenge the contempt.”

“The position I’m stating is now the position of the administration,” Giuliani continued.

Giuliani joins a growing list of White House and Trump administration officials who have refused to testify before Congress or have been blocked from doing so by the administration, including U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who was blocked from testifying Tuesday.

Giuliani’s comments are the latest attack by the administration on House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which they argue is illegitimate.
