Rudy Giuliani claimed on ABC News Saturday that he’ll help defend the president at his upcoming second impeachment trial — but a Trump spokesman to tweeted hours later that Trump has yet to choose his legal representation.
“I’m involved right now … that’s what I’m working on,” Giuliani told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl.
But early Sunday, Trump campaign spokesman J. Hogan Gidley tweeted that no such decision has been made.
“Statement On President Trump’s Impeachment Defense Team,” the tweet began.
“President Trump has not yet made a determination as to which lawyer or law firm will represent him for the disgraceful attack on our Constitution and democracy, known as the ‘impeachment hoax.’
‘We will keep you informed.’”
The House passed an article of impeachment on Wednesday charging Trump with inciting insurrection for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot; Speaker Nancy Pelosi has yet to say when she will send the article to the Senate for trial.
