Judge Commands That Giuliani Testify in Georgia Election Probe

Linkedin Share

Former Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani has been laying a bit low of late, and it’s easy to see why.

Giuliani, who also served as Mayor of New York City for a substantial amount of time, was one of the leading voices in the fight for election security after the 2020 presidential contest in which Donald Trump repeatedly claimed that the results were “rigged”.  Giuliani, who was representing the President at the time, embarked on a cross-country tour in an attempt to substantiate the Commander in Chief’s claims.

Now, officials in Georgia are looking to procure his testimony, and a New York judge is demanding that they get their way.

A judge in New York has ordered Rudy Giuliani to appear next month before a special grand jury in Atlanta that’s investigating whether former President Donald Trump and others illegally tried to interfere in the 2020 general election in Georgia, the AP reports. New York Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber on July 13 issued an order directing Giuliani, a Trump lawyer and former New York City mayor, to appear before the special grand jury on Aug. 9 and on any other dates ordered by the court in Atlanta, according to documents filed Wednesday in Fulton County Superior Court.

The investigation is part of a theory being posited by many on the left in which Giuliani, a longtime lawyer, is said to have been involved in Hollywood-style conspiracy to overturn the election results.

Giuliani had been summoned to appear in court in New York on July 13 to present any reasons why a subpoena should not be issued for him to testify in Atlanta, but he failed to show up for the hearing, Farber wrote in his order. In the petition for Giuliani’s testimony, [Fulton County District Attorney Fani] Willis identified him as both a personal attorney for Trump and a lead attorney for his campaign. There is evidence that Giuliani’s appearance at a state Senate subcommitee hearing, where he presented video he claimed showed election fraud but was soon debunked, “was part of a multi-state, coordinated plan by the Trump Campaign to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere,” the petition states.

Willis is reportedly considering a subpoena of Donald Trump as well, but no concrete evidence of such a bold move has been identified as of yet.
