It turns out Rudy Giuliani's strange ramblings aren't just limited to news network appearances.
Amid breaking stories of Trump's corrupt interactions with world leaders and fantasies of alligator-infested moats around the Southern border, Giuliani pledged to White House correspondent for The Atlantic, Elaina Plott, that he would sue "the swamp."

Rudy Giuliani says he is looking to sue The Swamp. https://t.co/3D65Mg6VaO— Elaina Plott (@Elaina Plott) 1569986504.0
Giuliani told plot he was looking for a "jaw [sic] suit" to end what he believes to be lawless action, though the impeachment inquiry launched against Trump last week was laid out by the Founding Fathers and is literally the law in action.
When Plott asked whom Giuliani was planning to sue, he simply responded:
Trump v The Swamp"
In case you're fortunate enough to have steered clear of any Trump propaganda over the past four years, "the Swamp" is Trump's name for what he believes to be corrupt politicians in Washington, often working in tandem with the "fake news media." "Drain the Swamp" became one of the Trump campaign's hallmark slogans in 2016 and remains a mainstay within red cap rhetoric.
So the Swamp isn't one person or group. It's a tool Trump uses to sic his base on politicians and media personalities he finds unfavorable. So, Plott asked the question we were all thinking: "How do you sue The Swamp?"
Giuliani simply replied:
"In federal court"
Sadly, nonsensical assertions like these are par for the course for the man formerly known as "America's Mayor." In fact, Giuliani's ineptitude has done a wealth of work to inadvertently vindicate Trump's critics and humiliate his client.

@elainaplott @joshtpm I need to take a break from all of this. I'm going to go watch a couple of episodes of Jaw and Order.— Mike (@Mike) 1569990466.0
@elainaplott @joshtpm What’s a jaw suit?— ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anonymous (@¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anonymous) 1569990491.0
Giuliani has been subpoenaed for documents by the three House committees overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry after Giuliani said on national television that he asked Ukrainian officials to investigate the president's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Giuliani then bragged on national television again that he had text messages to prove that he, a private citizen, was acting on behalf of the State Department in his dealings with Ukraine.
Come to think of it, maybe The Swamp isn't so theoretical after all.
