Rudy Giuliani on "This Week."

President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said on ABC's “This Week” on Sunday that he will cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee in its impeachment investigation of Trump and Ukraine if the president tells him to, but called Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) an "illegitimate chairman."

Why it matters: The committee is quickly moving ahead with its investigation into allegations that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, issuing a subpoena for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday and scheduling a series of hearings and depositions for this week. Schiff later said on ABC that the committee will "make that decision down the road" on whether it would be "productive" to bring in Giuliani, a Trump loyalist who is notoriously combative in cable news interviews.

What he's saying: When first asked whether he would cooperate, Giuliani rebuked Schiff: "I wouldn't cooperate with Adam Schiff. I think Adam Schiff should be removed."

  • He said he believes Schiff has "already prejudged the case. If we want fairness here, we got to put somebody in charge of that committee who has an open mind. Not someone who wants to hang the president."

President Trump has not attended a White House coronavirus task force meeting in “several months,” NIAID director Anthony Fauci told MSNBC on Friday.

Why it matters: At the beginning of the pandemic, the task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, met every day, but in the "last several weeks," members have held virtual meetings once a week, Fauci said, even as the number of new cases continues to surge in the country.

Nearly 130,000 fewer people will die of COVID-19 this winter if 95% of Americans wear face masks in public, according to research published Friday.

Why it matters: “Increasing mask use is one of the best strategies that we have right now to delay the imposition of social distancing mandates," Dr. Christopher Murray of the University of Washington told the N.Y. Times.
