President Donald Trump's attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has widely established a perception of ineptitude after months of contradictory explanations for Trump's actions and a series of verbal gaffes that have since been immortalized.

So it's fair to say he lived up to expectations when responding to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's leaked opening statement ahead of Cohen's testimony to the House Oversight Committee Thursday morning.

In the statement, Cohen calls Trump a racist, a conman, and a cheat. What's more, he presents documents which supposedly prove the allegation.

As usual, Giuliani attempted to defend the President, unequivocally denying Cohen's allegations and dismissing his credibility.

Also as usual, Giuliani succeeded in making things worse for the President.

Giuliani said:

"It's pathetic...If you believe him, you are a fool. He bragged he was connected to  Russian organized crime and he may be."

Giuliani cited Cohen's alleged ties to Russian organized crime while attempting to discredit his testimony against a President who's fended off allegations of entanglement with Putin for the better part of the last two years.


Many noticed that Giuliani's statement made Trump look bad on the Russia front.

They gave Rudy and Trump a challenge.

Many demanded that Trump and Giuliani follow Cohen's lead and testify under oath.

Some also warn that Giuliani will face the same fate as Cohen, with perhaps even less mercy.

Cohen's testimony is seven hours away at the time of this article's writing. It's already making waves.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
