During an explosive interview on Saturday with Fox News host Ed Henry,President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani set the record straight while discussing the fallout from the impeachment hearings.
周六，特朗普总统的私人律师鲁迪·朱利安尼(Rudy Giuliani)在接受福克斯新闻频道(Fox News)主持人埃德·亨利(Ed Henry)的一次爆炸性采访时，在讨论弹劾听证会的影。
"Are you afraid,Mr.Mayor that you could be indicted?"Ed Henry questioned Giuliani.
"Oh,wow,how long have you known me,Ed?"Giuliani shot back,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."
"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,"Giuliani added."But you know that 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."
"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."

The most explosive moment surrounding this situation actually came in a follow up tweet later in the day when Giuliani announced that he has a kill switch if anything were to happen to him.
当天晚些时候，朱利安尼在 twitter 上宣布，如果他出了什么事，他会设置一个终止开关，这是围绕这一情况最具爆炸性的时刻。
"The statement I've made several times of having an insurance policy,if thrown under bus,is sarcastic&relates to the files in my safe about the Biden Family's 4 decade monetizing of his office,"Giuliani stated.
"If I disappear,it will appear immediately along with my RICO chart,"he added.
"如果我消失了，它将立即出现在我的 RICO 图表中，"他补充说。
Now that the impeachment hearings are over,Republicans like Giuliani are going on the offensive.Lindsey Graham of the Senate Judiciary Committee has requested the following from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo:
1.All documents and communications,including call transcripts or summaries,related to the Vice President's phone calls with President Poroshenko on February 11,18,and 19 and March 22 of 2016,especially with respect to whether Vice President Biden mentioned the Prosecutor General's investigation into Burisma.
2.All documents and communications between the Vice President and his office and President Poroshenko and his office after the raid on Mr.Zlochevsky's home on February 2,2016,until the dismissal of the Prosecutor General on March 29,2016.
2.在2016年2月2日对 Zlochevsky 先生家进行突袭后，直到2016年3月29日总检察长被免职为止，副总统及其办公室与 Poroshenko 总统及其办公室之间的所有文件和通信。
3.All documents and communications related to a meeting between Devon Archer,a business partner of Hunter Biden,and Secretary of State John Kerry on March 2,2016.
Graham's request came right after the Democrats'impeachment hearings wrapped up.The hearings were about a phone call President Trump had with Ukrainian President Zelensky where they discussed potential corruption involving Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
格雷厄姆的请求是在民主党的弹劾听证会结束后提出的。听证会是关于特朗普总统与乌克兰总统泽伦斯基的一次电话通话，他们讨论了涉及乔·拜登(Joe Biden)及其儿子亨特·拜登(Hunter Biden)的潜在腐败问题。
Joe Biden claims that"there's nothing to investigate"however he was the one who admitted in public that he"threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull$1 billion in U.S.loan guarantees,sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency,if it didn't immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin,"according to the Hill.
据国会山报道，Joe Biden 声称"没有什么需要调查的"，但是他却公开承认他"在2016年3月威胁乌克兰总统彼得·波罗申科，如果奥巴马政府不立即解雇总检察长 Viktor Shokin，他将撤回10亿美元的美国贷款担保，使这个前苏联共和国陷入破产境地。"。
"I said,'You're not getting the billion.'I'm going to be leaving here in,I think it was about six hours.I looked at them and said:'I'm leaving in six hours.If the prosecutor is not fired,you're not getting the money,'"Biden bragged to an audience."Well,son of a bitch,he got fired.And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."
