Giuliani Appears Before Atlanta Grand Jury Investigating Trump

Source: New York Times/Richard Fausset

ATLANTA — When Rudolph W. Giuliani traveled to Georgia’s capital city in December 2020 to make fanciful public accusations of election fraud on behalf of President Donald J. Trump, he was greeted in a manner befitting the emissary of the most powerful man on earth, and posed for photos with admirers and sympathetic state politicians.

On Wednesday morning, Mr. Giuliani was back in Atlanta, this time under very different circumstances.

The former New York City mayor, who was serving as Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer after the November 2020 election, showed up shortly before 8:30 a.m. to appear before a Fulton County special grand jury conducting a criminal investigation into postelection meddling by Mr. Trump and his associates. Local prosecutors informed Mr. Giuliani’s lawyers this week that he was a “target” in that investigation, meaning that his indictment was possible.

Instead of visiting the elegant gold-domed State Capitol — where he and a pro-Trump group made a number of false claims about election fraud, raising concerns about untrustworthy voting machines and suitcases of illegal ballots — Mr. Giuliani appeared a few blocks away at the Fulton County court complex, where Atlantans go to resolve real estate disputes, file for divorce or be arraigned for armed robberies.

1. I'm shocked that he actually showed. Probably did the 5th against self-incrimination but I think

that was just an investigation so perhaps no 5th amendment is needed?

6. It's a special grand jury, so...

... taking the 5th would probably be a good idea. "Anything you say can and will be held against you ".

11. He tired to avoid appearing . . .

. . . by claiming his doctor would not let him fly because of his heart condition. So, the Atlanta DA offered to send him a bus ticket.

He flew.

10. "Rudy Giuliani"? Where have I heard that name before?

Is this the same Rudy Giuliani who was Mayor of New York City, who was US District Attorney for the Southern District of New York and who now is a rambling drunk whose hair dye runs down his face, whose law license has been suspended, and who can't get his old client Donald Trump to pay him???
