Now, Guiliani is reportedly expressing a willingness to openly engage with the committee.

By cooperating, Giuliani could avoid a costly legal fight and might also be less likely to face a criminal contempt of congress charge.

Steve Bannon was indicted in November, while former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, case could still face charges.
