The former mayor of New York and one of the closest collaborators of former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, has been informed that he is being formally investigated for the alleged attempt by former US President Trump to illegally avoid his electoral defeat in the November presidential elections. 2020 investigating a grand jury from Fulton County, Georgia. A Giuliani attorney, Bob Costello, has confirmed the information to CNN. “This comes after we have asked them about six or seven times,” Costello said. Giuliani is summoned to testify before the grand jury next Wednesday, confirmed Costello, who did not want to specify whether he will accept the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating yourself. Trump’s lawyer Giuliani himself was Trump’s lawyer during the November 2020 electoral process, an election in which Trump was defeated by the current president, Joe Biden. Trump and his supporters unsuccessfully denounced voter fraud in court and maneuvered to try to prevent Biden’s appointment. The protests culminated on June 6 with an assault on Capitol Hill. Giuliani met with state congressmen from Georgia on up to three occasions in December 2020, one of them by videoconference, to broadcast lies about a conspiracy and alleged electoral fraud. He thus accused two electoral officials of perpetrating rigging with votes in favor of Biden that they carried in suitcases, an extreme that has not been proven.
