Ex-GOP House Member Predicts How It Will End For Rudy Giuliani

"This whole Trump team is corrupt," former lawmaker David Jolly told MSNBC's Chris Matthews.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) on Thursday predicted how the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump will end for his personal attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

And it’s not good.

“I think Rudy Giuliani ultimately ends up in jail for FARA violations or some other type of violation related to disclosure and receiving foreign money,” Jolly, who served in the House from 2014 to 2017, told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

Matthews had earlier asked Jolly why he believed Democrats in the House had not called Giuliani to testify in the investigation into the Ukraine scandal “because this seems to be, he’s the mess incarnate.”

“He’s also a bit of a wild card kind of like Corey Lewandowski,” Jolly responded. “And, you know, the question is, do they already have enough based on all of the corroborating evidence and testimony, and the answer is yes.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had earlier in the day called on House Democratic leaders to start drafting articles of impeachment against the president.

Jolly thinks the witnesses “they really want” are acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, former national security adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and others. “But they’re not willing to litigate that,” Jolly added, before wondering why Giuliani is still continuing his Ukraine dealings amid the impeachment inquiry.

“Why is Rudy over there now, Chris? Because they’re all corrupt,” he said. “This whole Trump team is corrupt. That’s the bottom line.”
