President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani snapped at Fox News host Ed Henry during an interview Saturday, accusing Henry of covering up news about Joe Biden and Ukraine.
“Are you afraid, Mr. Mayor, that you could be indicted?” Henry asked.
“Oh, wow, how long have you known me, Ed?” Giuliani said, adding, “Do you think I’m afraid? Do you think I get afraid? I did the right thing. I represented my client in a very, very effective way. I was so effective that I’ve discovered a pattern of corruption that the Washington press has been covering up for three or four years.” (RELATED: Rudy Giuliani Hires High-Powered Lawyers)
“You should have jumped all over this in 2015 when this awful conflict was mentioned and it was hidden and suppressed by the Washington press,” he continued. “The reality is, I’m embarrassing you because you didn’t do your job, and I’m also going to bring out a pay-for-play scheme in the Obama administration that will be devastating to the Democrat Party.” (RELATED: NYT: Rudy Giuliani Under Investigation Over Ukraine Work.

Then, Giuliani warned that if the Mafia couldn’t kill him, the media wouldn’t either.
“I expected, the moment I heard Biden’s name, I told my colleagues, they’re going to try to kill me,” he said. “Because they’re going to kill the messenger. But damn it, the mafia couldn’t kill me, your colleagues are not going to kill me.” (RELATED: Giuliani Fires Back At Biden Camp: They’re ‘Clearly Rattled’)
