Rudy Giuliani's long history as a Trump friend and associate

Clip: 11/12/2019 | 8m 50s

Mentioned frequently in transcripts from closed-door testimonies in the impeachment inquiry, Rudy Giuliani stands at the center of the saga over President Trump’s Ukraine policy. Giuliani is now the president’s personal lawyer, but he first entered the national spotlight as New York’s tough-on-crime mayor — and later, a consoling figure amid the grief of September 11th. Yamiche Alcindor reports.
