Personal Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that he won’t cooperate with House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) in his investigation into President Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal.

During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” George Stephanopoulos asked Giuliani if he would cooperate with Schiff’s investigation into Trump’s attempt to pressure the president of Ukraine to work with Giuliani to investigate Joe Biden.

“I wouldn’t cooperate with Adam Schiff,” Giuliani said, arguing that Schiff should be “removed” and replaced with a “neutral person.”

“So that’s your answer, you’re not going to cooperate?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“I didn’t say that. I said I will considerate it,” the lawyer responded.

“You said you wouldn’t do it,” Stephanopoulos pointed out. “You said you will not cooperate with Adam Schiff.”

“I said I will consider it,” Giuliani insisted.

The lawyer also said that if Trump wants him to testify, “of course I’ll testify, even though I think Adam Schiff is an illegitimate chairman.”

“He has already prejudged the case,” Giuliani added.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support.
