With the shadow of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry looming over him, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer apparently realized it’s time to get a lawyer of his own.

Multiple reports confirmed on Tuesday that Rudy Giuliani has hired former Watergate prosecutor Jon Sale as Democrats dig into Giuliani’s heavy involvement in Trump’s crusade to use resources from foreign governments to help his reelection efforts.

Politico reported that Sale agreed to serve as Giuliani’s lawyer on Monday, the same day House Democrats subpoenaed the former New York City mayor.

“We’re just starting to analyze what position we should take,” Sale told Politico.

However, Giuliani’s new legal representative has already identified a glaring flaw in the former New York City mayor’s blundering attempt to prove his innocence in the scandal.

“Every time I turn around, Rudy’s on another TV show,” he told CNN. “He and I could have a conversation, and then I turn on the television and he could be doing something else.”
