Giuliani: SCOTUS Should Dismiss Impeachment

(Fox News/" Justice with Judge Jeanine")

By    |   Sunday, 12 January 2020 08:21 AM

Rudy Giuliani argues the U.S. Supreme Court should dismiss President Donald Trump's  impeachment before Senate trial starts — yet says a trial would be good for the president.

In a Saturday night interview with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro, Trump's personal lawyer asserted “there are no rules for a trial in the Supreme Court.”

“All it says in the Senate is there shall be a trial," he said. "The Chief Justice presides. What happens at the beginning of the trial? The defense lawyer says I move to dismiss the indictment."


“Suppose somebody charged me with not looking nice tonight … and brought me on trial before the New York Supreme Court. … It would be dismissed,” he added.

“The rules are set by the Senate. Then the Chief Justice interprets the rules. The Chief Justice will be given the power to dismiss,” Giuliani argued.

But he also speculated an impeachment trial in the Senate would be work to Trump’s favor.

“If we do go to trial he will get acquitted and they’ll make fools out of themselves,” Giuliani said. “I can even argue that politically it would be better to go to trial. They’ll find out about [Joe] Biden, they’ll find out what a big crook Biden is.”

Giuliani insisted a trial means that “they’ll find out that Biden just didn’t make money in Iran, but he made money in China, and he made money in Iraq.”

Trump has also said he would like to go to the high court in the case of impeachment -- and tweeted a "thank you" to Giuliani after the interview.
