Biden Campaign Lobbies Networks Not to Book Rudy Giuliani on TV
Possible impeachment of President Trump, based on the whistleblower charge regarding the president’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, dominated the Sunday morning talk shows.
Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) argued their case against President Trump while the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) aggressively defended him.
On “This Week,” Giuliani provides evidence the Ukraine prosecutor was investigating Hunter Biden before he was fired because of former Vice President Joe Biden’s threat.

The Biden campaign is upset about Giuliani’s presence in the media and urged networks not to book the former mayor of New York City.
The New York Times obtained a copy of the letter from the Biden campaign.
Graham also defended the president on “Face The Nation.”

Democrats are desperately pushing impeachment in an effort to gain a political advantage for the 2020 presidential race.
Efforts such as trying to silence critics like Giuliani will backfire.
