He knows he will be acquitted.

He won't testify. Won't have lawyers. Will be a "no show"

There's really no reason for Giuliani not to show up. (Well, potential contempt of Congress, but other than that....)

I suspect he'll show up with some of the other nuts in tow. Lin Wood, maybe, if he's not in an institution by then.

If you’re Trump this is rather a no brainer. With Senate Rs aka the jury on record that impeaching former president is unconstitutional why spend money on lawyers ?


Rudy would be a disaster. It is better just not to put on a defense. They will acquit him anyway

That's never stopped Trump from sending him anywhere.

Trump *wants* a disaster. That's his MO. He wants chaos and to make a mockery out of everything. This is unlikely to be any different.

trump must've rejected Rudy because he might actually lose with Rudy—like in all those other cases Rudy lost recently.

Donald Trump UNDER OATH and subject to cross-examination by serious attorneys?

Be still, my heart!
