Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, said that he will not testify before House investigators as part of Democrats' ongoing impeachment efforts against the president unless Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is removed as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and the House votes in full on taking up the impeachment probe.

Lindsey Graham-led Senate Judiciary Committee.

The impeachment proceedings began after revelations from a whistleblower complaint last month revealed that Trump pressured his foreign counterpart in Ukraine to investigate a potential political opponent-former Vice President Joe Biden and his son-for their involvement in a Ukrainian gas company.

"Given the House of Representatives' behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine".

During his call with the Ukrainian president, Trump asked his counterpart to discuss the investigation into the Bidens with Giuliani, according to a transcript released by the White House.

"I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns", Graham said in a string of tweets.

If Giuliani was to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he would face questions from three Democratic presidential candidates: Sens.

Graham, one of the president's most vocal defenders on Capitol Hill, said in a tweet Tuesday morning that he has "heard on numerous occasions disturbing allegations by [Giuliani] about corruption in Ukraine".

In late September, Giuliani appeared on ABC's "This Week" and waved around a stack of documents he said were affidavits that proved that Shokin was dismissed from his post as a result of his investigation into Biden's son and Burisma. It's unclear if he will accept the invitation, as the Trump Administration has blocked other witnesses from testifying before the House.

After details of the call between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart were brought to light by a whistle blower, House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into the president's conduct.

US officials, the whistleblower wrote, were "deeply concerned" by Giuliani's communications with Ukraine.

A hearing with Giuliani potentially would turn the spotlight over to some of Biden's competitors in the Democratic primary who sit on the Judiciary Committee - Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar.

Giuliani has shown that live testimony isn't the best medium for him to appear, given several startling interviews over the past few weeks. The top Democrats would likely use the high-profile setting in order to take on Trump and grill Giuliani.
