Personal lawyer of incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, told ABC News that he is part of the president’s defense team in the impeachment case.
According to him, the defense intends to prove that the president’s allegations of election fraud are not incitement to violence. In addition, Giuliani added that the defense will present evidence of irregularities in the November 2020 presidential election.
The attorney explained that the prosecution’s line of reasoning is that anyone who talks about election fraud is inciting residents to violence because those words are lies. According to Giuliani, if it can be proven that there really were irregularities, such a point of view would become legitimate.
Also, the attorney for the White House head said that Trump should recognize the impeachment process as illegal and reject it if the process goes to trial.
On January 13, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a resolution to impeach Trump for “sedition.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signed an article on the impeachment of the head of the White House, the document was sent to the Senate.
The upper chamber of Congress plans to consider impeaching Trump after the inauguration of leader-elect Joe Biden, Jan. 20. If the Senate approves the impeachment resolution, Trump will be banned from running again.
