Giuliani not afraid of facing possible indictment

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani sounded off on the impeachment inquiry on Saturday in an interview with Fox News and when asked if he's afraid of being indicted said this: (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RUDY GIULIANI, TRUMP'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY SAYING: "Oh, wow.

How long have you known me, Ed?

You think I'm afraid?

You think I get afraid?

I represented my client in a very, very effective way." The former New York City mayor has found himself at the center of Trump's impeachment storm.

Witnesses testified in the House probe that Giuliani ran a "shadow" foreign policy effort in Ukraine.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTING U.S. AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE, WILLIAM TAYLOR, SAYING: "President Trump asked the participants to work with Mr. Giuliani on Ukraine policy." (SOUNDBITE) (English) FIONA HILL, FORMER RUSSIA ADVISER TO U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "In the course of that discussion he said Giuliani was a hand grenade that was going to blow everyone up." (SOUNDBITE) (English) KURT VOLKER, FORMER SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE FOR UKRAINE NEGOTIATIONS, SAYING: "I believe the messages being conveyed by Giuliani were a problem." Giuliani also told Fox what he thinks about former Vice President Joe Biden, who's also been caught in the impeachment storm... as it centers around whether Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RUDY GIULIANI, TRUMP'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY SAYING: "I don't care what he says, he's lying.

He's been lying all his life.

The guy's been a corrupt politician." Giuliani has made an unverified accusation that former Vice President Joe Biden bribed Ukraine to stop investigations into the natural gas company his son was on the board of.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RUDY GIULIANI, TRUMP'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY SAYING: "When he's asked about all these conflicts and money made by his family, he says I don't know my family's business.

He says it so often, he's starting to sound like Corleone in The Godfather." In the wide ranging interview, Giuliani also said he has a very very good relationship with the president and he's not afraid if Trump tried to turn on him.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RUDY GIULIANI, TRUMP'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY SAYING: "I've seen things written like 'he is going to throw me under the bus.'

When they say that, I say 'he isn't, but I have insurance."
