During an appearance Saturday on the Fox News show America's Newsroom, host Ed Henry asked Giuliani about the status of his relationship with the president.

While railing against alleged fake news, which he calls 'totally insulting, ' Giuliani lets loose what is seemingly passive-aggressive warning towards Trump.

Appearing on "America's News GQ" Saturday morning, Giuliani said that despite widespread reports of his impending legal peril, he was not the least bit anxious about the prospect of being indicted.

Giuliani did not specify what the "insurance" entailed. "To be perfectly clear, I don't acknowledge any questions from you in this lifetime or the next lifetime", Nunes said while leaving the impeachment hearing.

Prior to that, Giuliani tried to quell any belief that he was afraid of being indicted as a result of the impeachment inquiry.

Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was in contact with secretary of state Mike Pompeo in the months before the USA ambassador to Ukraine was abruptly recalled, according to a cache of documents released by on Friday.

The documents were released to the non-partisan watchdog group American Oversight as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for State Department Ukraine records.

The 100 pages also included information related to House Democrats' claims that Giuliani launched a so-called "smear campaign" against then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, leading to her ouster. She was withdrawn from her post in Ukraine in May.

Parnas, who worked with President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to push accusations of Democratic corruption in Ukraine, reportedly heard directly from Shokin that the prosecutor met with Nunes.

Biden has bragged openly of how he threatened to withhold loan guarantees to ensure Shokin was removed from office in early 2016.

Joseph Bondy, the attorney who represents recently indicted Soviet-born American businessman Lev Parnas, said his client is willing to participate in the impeachment inquiry and inform Congress about a meeting between Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the top-ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee who has been heavily involved in impeachment proceedings, and former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin in Vienna in 2018, CNN reports.

Bondy said he has also tried to schedule a time for Parnas to testify under oath before the House Intelligence Committee about the "first-hand knowledge" he says his client has about President Trump's bid to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden's family and other Democrats before the 2020 election.
