Rudy Giuliani's Actions in Ukraine for Trump 'the Highest of High Crimes,' Says Law Professor

[www.newsweek.com]

Quote

"With all the Fake News let me make it clear that everything I did was to discover evidence to defend my client against false charges," Giuliani wrote on Twitter last night. "Dems would be horrified by the attacks on me, if my client was a terrorist. But they don't believe @realDonaldTrump has rights. Justice will prevail."

Georgetown's Lederman wrote: "This merely confirms what was so outrageous: Giuliani wasn't a representative or employee of the United States; his duty of loyalty was 100% to his (personal capacity) client. And yet Trump told Ukraine it had to dance to Rudy's tune.

"A tune *designed to advance Trump's personal interests*--in order to remain in the U.S.'s good graces (e.g., to secure access, aid, etc.).

"This is the highest of high crimes—using the leverage of his position as chief diplomat to advance his own interests—and it's hard to imagine anything more inconsistent w/Trump's constitutional oath & duty and more revealing of his utter unfitness for office.

"And that'd be true *even if there were no quid pro quo* (but of course there was, which makes it all the worse)."

To squeal--or not to squeal on Donald. IMO, that's what's keeping the human hand grenade quiet.

How much longer? It'll be awhile. First, we need to find out what will happen to Parnas and Fruman.
