"If they took me to court, I would have to hire another lawyer," Giuliani told CNN's Mike Warren on October 15.
The previous Wednesday, Giuliani said he had not heard of the FBI or any US attorney for the Southern District of New York or any other lawyer in relation to Ukraine.
He would not directly inform CNN on Wednesday morning whether he has hired or is present the process of hiring a criminal lawyer.
As CNN reported earlier, people near Giuliani advised him to hire a defense lawyer because of questions about his connections with Parnas and Furman. According to these people, he had defied this advice.
Kenneth McCallion, a lawyer in New York, said investigators asked him for the first time at the beginning of this year about Giuliani's ties to Parnas and Fruman, a telephone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25 The subject of Parliament's impeachment investigation into the president is the discovery of information that would help Trump politically, and Trump encouraged Zelensky to speak with his lawyer because Giuliani "knows very well what's going on". As the record showed, Trump urged Zelensky to work with Giuliani to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. There is no evidence that Biden has wronged Ukraine.
