“As you see, I’m very nervous and sweating and upset, whether I’m going to be indicted. It does trouble me greatly because I value my reputation beyond anything,” Giuliani said on his show.
“I find that what they’ve done here is reprehensible. And I feel it’s reprehensible with regard to me, my family, my career, and what I’ve done in my life,” he added.
Representatives for Giuliani and Trump did not immediately respond to requests for comment sent outside regular business hours.
