Rudy Giuliani suggested that he might sue Fox News host Steve Hilton for recommending that President Donald Trump fire him.

“I have not taken a penny for representing my friend, President Trump. I am outraged that @SteveHiltonx reported that I was trying to pursue private business deals in Ukraine to ‘enrich’ myself, when in reality I have made ZERO in Ukraine!” the president’s lawyer wrote in a tweet. “Very lazy reporting!”

“Lawyers tell me @SteveHiltonx is a wild card and I should sue him for libel,” Giuliani added. “He recklessly disregarded the truth!”

As Giuliani remains under scrutiny over his involvement in the effort to pressure the Ukrainian government into investigating Trump’s political foes, new reports have said that he pursued his own business deals in Ukraine. Hilton addressed this on Sunday on Fox show The Next Revolution, where he called Giuliani an “unethical disaster” and a “grifter.”

Calling out Fox News contributor John Solomon and others involved in the Ukraine story, Hilton also declared, “it’s time to dump these toxic chumps.”
