Hey Rudy, one former Trump lawyer knows how you feel.
Michael Cohen’s tweet on Thursday morning was in reaction to a report from the Washington Post that President Trump has told his aides to cease payments to his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, following weeks of futile efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Sources told CNN, however, that it wasn’t immediately clear whether Trump was serious about his instructions to withhold payment or just lashing out after being impeached for a second time. The president has been blaming his longtime lawyer and others for his latest spiral, though he has not accepted any responsibility in public or in private, the sources said.
A senior adviser for the Trump campaign took to Twitter
in an apparent attempt to push back on the reports, but he didn’t deny them, either.
As far as impeachment, the Senate will soon take up the question of whether to remove the president and bar him from holding federal office in the future. Two-thirds would need to vote to remove him, and it would have to pass a separate resolution to bar him from federal office.
