President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is fighting back after speculation that his efforts in Ukraine weren't to benefit Trump, but to benefit Giuliani's own interests.
However, his target is an unlikely one: Republican Counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, Stephen Castor.
After Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified that State Department officials and other diplomats working with Ukraine were forced to begrudgingly work with Giuliani, Castor asked:
“Did you know that Rudy Giuliani has private business interests in Ukraine?”
Castor proceeded to imply that Giuliani wasn't acting on the President's behalf, but instead to advance his own private interests.
Now, Giuliani is demanding an apology from Castor for business dealings he says are non-existent.
But Giuliani's claim is questionable at best.
Two prominent Ukraine-born businessman, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were instrumental in Giuliani's efforts to pressure an investigation into the Bidens before their subsequent arrest.
Just yesterday, prosecutors in New York advanced their probe into whether or not Giuliani failed to register as a foreign agent for his dealings in Ukraine.
People on Twitter agree that Giuliani may have painted himself into a corner.
Giuliani has refused to testify, and some are urging him to rethink that.
Giuliani's days as Trump's attorney may be numbered.
