Rudy Giuliani Interviewed in January 6 Investigation

June 28, 2023

A spokesperson for former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has confirmed that he was interviewed by special counsel investigators probing the attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election. 

“The appearance was entirely voluntary and conducted in a professional manner,” said Ted Goodman in a statement.

According to an Associated Press source, the interview was not before the grand jury. The source did not go into detail regarding what was discussed during the interview. 

Along with his investigation into former President Trump’s handling of classified documents, which has brought about an indictment on 37 criminal counts, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed veteran prosecutor Jack Smith as special counsel to investigate any potential criminal wrongdoing by Trump or his followers regarding the 2020 election and the related deadly January 6, 2021 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. 

As a personal attorney for then-President Trump, Giulani pushed bogus legal challenges to the 2020 Presidential election results.

The Department of Justice has been investigating for months what role Trump legal advisers played in working to overturn the election. In May of 2021 Giulani had 18 personal electronic devices, including cell phones, seized by prosecutors in Manhattan.

Last week news broke that Smith’s office has compelled at least two fake electors to testify to a federal grand jury about efforts to overturn President Biden’s 2020 election victory.

The revelation of their testimony comes the same week that attorney John Eastman, who largely authored the fake electors scheme, is facing potential disbarment in California.

Giuliani himself is currently facing ethics charges by the DC Board of Professional Responsibility over alleged breach of ethics rules on behalf of the 2020 Trump campaign in Pennsylvania. The board asserts that Giuliani “weaponized his law license” to push baseless claims that the election was stolen. If ultimately found guilty by a DC court he could be disbarred.

The former Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, Giuliani had his New York law license suspended in June 2021 after a state appeals court ruled he had made “demonstrably false and misleading” statements about voter fraud. 

Meanwhile, prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia investigating attempts to subvert the 2020 election on the state level interviewed Giulani last year.

During his speech on the Ellipses on January 6, Giuliani called for “trial by combat”—though he later insisted he wasn’t seeking to inspire violence, he was just making a reference to “Game of Thrones.”

A reported 6,887 people die, almost all by murder, assassination or in battle, over the course of that TV series.

Four people died during the January 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, and five police officers died of various causes following the attack.
