President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is prepared to testify in the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into the president's impeachment only if his client, Donald Trump, agrees. This was stated by Giuliani in an interview with ABC News.

Giuliani claimed that he did not want to work with committee chairman Adam Schiff, but was prepared to think about it if Trump agreed.

"I'm a lawyer. It's his (Trump's – e.d.) privilege, not mine. If he decides that he wants me to testify, of course I'll testify, even though I think Adam Schiff is an illegitimate chairman. He has already prejudged the case", - Giuliani said.
