Rudy Giuliani Calls on Supreme Court to 'Rule This Impeachment Unconstitutional' in Bonkers OpEd, and the Mockery Was Swift

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani often employs bizarre defenses in his attempts to vindicate his client.

Most of the time, he spouts these defenses (or lack thereof) live on news shows, but on Thursday, it was Giuliani's op-ed in the far-Right Daily Caller that began raising eyebrows.


The man formerly known as America's Mayor was railing against House Democrats' impeachment of the President late last year for soliciting help in an election from a foreign leader.

Giuliani made some...interesting claims.

One of the most bizarre claims is right there in the op-ed's title:
"The Supreme Court Should Step In To Rule This Impeachment Unconstitutional."

There's just one problem: impeachment is enshrined in the Constitution, and the founding fathers didn't mince words on which body is tasked with the responsibility of impeaching a corrupt President:

According to Article I, Section 2:

"The House of Representatives...shall have the sole Power of Impeachment."

Giuliani goes on to claim in the article that Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress—the articles which the House charged Trump with—don't qualify as "high crimes and misdemeanors" required for impeachment. He then falsely claims that a President can only be impeached for breaking laws civilians abide by every day.

The internet didn't hesitate to mock Giuliani's questionable analysis.







Yikes.
