Personal attorney of the U.S. President Rudy Giuliani stated he would not testify within the impeachment procedure without the consultation with his client. CNN reported that. 

Giuliani emphasized his work for Trump should be protected by the attorney-client privilege. 

"Ultimately, if I were to say yes and he were to say no, I can't testify," Giuliani said.

The former New York City mayor has become a central figure in the unfolding scandal surrounding Trump's communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that have led to a House impeachment inquiry into the President's conduct. According to a White House-released transcript of a July call between the two leaders, Trump asked Zelensky to work with Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, though there is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden. 

Giuliani said he has not heard from any of the three House committees investigating whether Trump acted improperly in his communications with the Ukrainians. Asked if he was concerned he would be subpoenaed by the House, Giuliani laughed.
 
"I consider them a joke. A sad joke. They have no legitimacy. I would think of challenging their subpoena on the grounds that they're not a legitimate committee," the personal attorney added.
