Former New York mayor and Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is currently being investigated over allegations related to business with the Ukraine, but he says he has an extra layer of protection should he “disappear” before the whole Ukrainegate fiasco is over with.
Yesterday, Giuliani expanded on a previously-mentioned “insurance policy” he has referenced in the past, saying it “relates to the files in my safe about the Biden Family’s 4 decade monetizing of his office. If I disappear, it will appear immediately along with my RICO chart.”
Here’s the tweet straight from Giuliani’s Twitter page:
Hours before that tweet, Giuliani had told Fox News' Ed Henry,
"I’ve seen things written like he’s [Trump] going to throw me under the bus. When they say that, I say he isn’t, but I have insurance."

Politico has more to say about Giuliani's warning to any who might try to take him down:
Rudy Giuliani on Saturday sought to play down a remark he's repeatedly made about having an "insurance policy" on President Donald Trump to protect himself amid the ongoing impeachment investigation.
“TRUTH ALERT: The statement I’ve made several times of having an insurance policy, if thrown under bus, is sarcastic & relates to the files in my safe about the Biden Family’s 4 decade monetizing of his office,” the president's personal lawyer tweeted.
Earlier Saturday, Fox News’ Ed Henry asked Giuliani whether he’s communicated with Trump after recenthead-snapping developments in the impeachment probe relating to Trump and Giuliani's efforts to secure an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden from Ukraine.
"You can assume that I talk with him early and often and have a very, very good relationship with him, and all these comments — which are totally insulting — I mean, I've seen things written like he's going to throw me under the bus,” Giuliani replied. ”When they say that, I say, 'He isn't, but I have insurance.’”
Bloomberg also said this about Giuliani's "insurance policy":
Rudy Giuliani, a focus of the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s foreign policy dealings, suggested he has dirt on the Biden family that would be released were he to get into trouble -- after earlier hinting he has a plan if he should fall out of favor with the president.
Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, described on Twitter Saturday as “sarcastic” recent comments, on Fox News and elsewhere, about having “an insurance policy” against the president, and instead pivoted to Biden.

That followed a Fox News interview during which he was asked whether Trump might soon conclude that Giuliani is a liability, and throw him “under the bus.”
“This is ridiculous,” Giuliani, 75, said. “We are very good friends. He knows what I did was in order to defend him, not to dig up dirt on Biden.”
