admin Posted August 24, 2018 Share Posted August 24, 2018 Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lawyer, said the "American people would revolt" if the president were impeached. Impeachment is a rare, complex procedure, and Giuliani said he believes it's unlikely to occur in Trump's case. Trump had a tough week in the courts as his former personal attorney implicated him in campaign-finance violations and his former campaign manager was convicted on eight counts of financial crimes. Recent polls over whether Trump should be impeached have been mixed, suggesting Americans are largely split on the issue. Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lawyer, said that the "American people would revolt" if Trump were impeached. Speaking with Sky News on a golf course in Scotland, the former New York City mayor said he "hardly" believes Trump would be impeached. "I think it's inevitable that he won't," Giuliani said. Only two US presidents have been impeached, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Both were acquitted in the Senate. President Richard Nixon resigned while facing the prospect of impeachment over the Watergate scandal. Between the rarity of impeachment and the fact Republicans control Congress, the likelihood of Trump being impeached in the near future appears slim. Moreover, even Democrats in Congress seem reluctant to discuss impeachment at this point. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
