Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that he was considering suing House Democrats over "an illicit plan carried out by illegal means" to remove President Donald Trump from office "on deliberately falsified charges."
Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney, said on Twitter that he would sue the Democrats because their impeachment probe seeks to "trample on the constitutional rights of citizens."
He first broached the subject Tuesday night in an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News and came hours after Democrats subpoenaed him in their investigations, alleging that Giuliani was in frequent contact with Ukrainian officials.
Giuliani, 75, the former New York City mayor, was mentioned more than 30 times in the whistleblower complaint submitted to Congress last week regarding President Trump's July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and whether Trump suggested an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden.
He told Ingraham that in "a couple of talks" with attorneys, they suggested that "we should bring a lawsuit on behalf of the president and several people in the administration, maybe even myself as a lawyer, against the members of Congress individually for violating constitutional rights, violating civil rights."
Though Ingraham noted that congressional members have immunity over their House floor comments, Giuliani contended they could be held liable for forming a "conspiracy" to deprive the president of his constitutional rights.
After the Fox interview, Elaina Plott, White House correspondent for The Atlantic, tweeted a screen shot of a Twitter exchange with Giuliani in which he said he was considering suing Democrats "to end lawless action."
Plott then asked whom would Giuliani sue, he responded, "The Swamp" under a case that would be entitled, "Trump v The Swamp."
