Since the release of a whistleblower’s complaint against Donald Trump was released, Rudy Giuliani has been in the press. The sometime Trump lawyer has not been quiet about the situation and has been a regular face on cable news.
There are lawmakers on both sides of the aisle that would like to interview the former New York Mayor about what exactly happened. Tonight on Anderson Cooper, Booker told the host that he hoped for the opportunity to question Giuliani.
Giuliani was invited to speak before the Senate by Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina senator tweeted, “I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns.”
Appearing on CNN, New Jersey senator Cory Booker seemed enthused about the opportunity to speak with Graham. He told Cooper:
“The conduct he has been doing, the direction he has been taking from the president, his intervention in areas where there are critical national security interests, yeah. There’s a lot I’d like to know from him. And I believe his behavior has been despicable, and the lies and half-truths, the deception that he’s been doing at the direction of this president and beyond is unbecoming. And he should step before Congress and answer for it.”
The opportunity to ask questions of Giuliani, though, may not come for either Graham or Booker. The Trump lawyer said of the offer, “Love Lindsey, but I am still a lawyer and I will have to deal with privilege.”
