Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City and personal attorney to President Trump, declared on Wednesday that he plans to file a lawsuit against Joe Biden.

Giuliani elaborated on his intentions during a live stream from New Hampshire. Taking to X (Twitter), Giuliani said, “I’m suing Joe Biden.”

During his broadcast, he blasted Joe Biden, calling him a “pathological liar.” Giuliani argued that Biden’s lies have had severe consequences, such as endangering national security and costing lives. By highlighting events in Ukraine and Afghanistan, Giuliani asserted that these incidents could have been avoided if it weren’t for Joe Biden’s actions and decisions.

Furthermore, Giuliani hinted at significant personal damages, including harm to his reputation and finances. He argued that statements made by Biden, that were echoed by media outlets, have significantly damaged his legal career and reduced his viewership on platforms such as YouTube. Giuliani clarified that being labeled a “Russian operative” and accused of promoting Russian disinformation has resulted in him losing “millions and millions of dollars.”

More from CNN:

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani filed a defamation lawsuit Wednesday against President Joe Biden for calling him a “Russian pawn” during a presidential debate nearly three years ago.

Giuliani announced the lawsuit at a rambling and sparsely attended news conference outside a courthouse in New Hampshire, where he filed to take advantage of the state’s defamation laws.

The former mayor reiterated several familiar attacks against Biden and his son, Hunter, though he only sued the president – despite the high bar for statements by public figures in a political setting to be found defamatory.

The move comes as Giuliani is facing his own legal exposure on several fronts and new questions about his ability to pay the lawyers representing him. Wednesday’s news conference took place shortly after news broke that another lawyer, who has been representing Giuliani in the Georgia election subversion case, had withdrawn.

Asked if he was concerned about Giuliani’s ability to pay his legal fees in this case, as his debts mount, Lou Diamond, one of the attorneys who appeared Wednesday alongside the former New York mayor, told reporters, “That is the furthest thing from my mind.”

“When I say he’s my friend, he is my friend. And he’s the friend of the country. He is America’s mayor,” Diamond said.

CNN has reached out to the White House for comment.

Giuliani also addressed reporting from The New York Times that prosecutors from special counsel Jack Smith’s office have asked about the former mayor’s drinking habits – and what Donald Trump knew about it while Giuliani served as the former president’s personal lawyer.

Trump has been indicted in Smith’s federal election interference case, and CNN previously reported that Giuliani is listed as co-conspirator 1 in that case. Giuliani has not been charged with a crime in that case.

“If I had an alcohol problem, and I could do all of that, I should be in the Guinness Book of Records,” Giuliani said at the news conference in New Hampshire, where he listed off his accomplishments as a former federal prosecutor and mayor. “I do not have an alcohol problem. I have never had an alcohol problem.”

At the center of Giuliani’s new lawsuit are comments made by then-candidate Joe Biden during a presidential debate in Nashville in late 2020. At the time, Biden said Russia was feeding Giuliani false information to help Trump’s chances of getting elected president.

“They’re interfering with American sovereignty. That’s what’s going on right now. They’re interfering with American sovereignty. To the best of my knowledge, I don’t think the president’s said anything to [Russian President Vladimir Putin] about it,” Biden said at the time, referring to Moscow’s efforts to undermine the US electoral process.
