Rudy Giuliani will likely be indicted in the Georgia election-fraud case

In late November 2020, Donald Trump and his cronies were in full ratf-cking mode, trying to overturn the election results state by state. Trump and his cronies crossed the legal line in several states, including Georgia. Trump directly asked Georgia’s Republican state officials to overturn the state’s election results (Georgia voted for Biden) and Trump cronies like Lindsey Graham and Rudy Giuliani were applying pressure and issuing a lot of threats to Gov. Kemp. Finally, in 2021, authorities began investigating the election tampering and fraud. A grand jury has been impaneled and testimony is being heard. Just in the past 48 hours, a federal judge told Lindsey Graham that he has to testify in the Georgia case, and Graham really, really does not want to. Prosecutors have apparently told Graham that he is a witness, not a target (which is bullsh-t). Now it looks like the target of the Georgia investigation is Giuliani. LMAO.

The legal pressures on Donald J. Trump and his closest allies intensified further on Monday, as prosecutors informed his former personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, that Mr. Giuliani is a target of a wide-ranging criminal investigation into election interference in Georgia.

The notification came on the same day that a federal judge rejected efforts by another key Trump ally, Senator Lindsey Graham, to avoid giving testimony before the special grand jury hearing evidence in the case in Atlanta.

One of Mr. Giuliani’s lawyers, Robert Costello, said in an interview that he was notified on Monday that his client was a target. Being so identified does not guarantee that a person will be indicted; rather, it usually means that prosecutors believe an indictment is possible, based on evidence they have seen up to that point.

Mr. Giuliani, who as Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer spearheaded efforts to keep Mr. Trump in power, emerged in recent weeks as a central figure in the inquiry being conducted by Fani T. Willis, the district attorney of Fulton County, Ga., which encompasses most of Atlanta. Earlier this summer, prosecutors questioned witnesses before the special grand jury about Mr. Giuliani’s appearances before state legislative panels in December 2020, when he spent hours peddling false conspiracy theories about secret suitcases of Democratic ballots and corrupted voting machines.

While it’s funny that Giuliani is the target and he’ll likely be indicted for all of this Georgia mess, let’s be clear: the Georgia situation involved Donald Trump personally and Lindsey Graham personally. Trump left his fingerprints all over this one, including a phone call – which was recorded – to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, begging him to overturn the state’s election results. Graham was also calling state Republicans and trying to f–k up the election results. Giuliani was just the public face of the ratf-cking operation.

    I feel a certain lightness of being from this article. Wishing a superior day to all but the aforementioned! Mr. Raffensberger admirably kept his head and morality despite their pressure and served his country well.

    • HufflepuffLizLemon says:

      I’m from GA and while Brad Raffensperger is a conservative Republican, he’s got a spine and some ethics. He’s more a McCain Republican than a Trump Republican, which is a matter of degrees but we’ll take it. He also won the primary over Trump’s pick (Jody Hice) which tells me GA voters valued his integrity. Our biggest problem right now in GA is Herschel Walker; hopefully Warnock pulls in a decisive victory and we can be truly purple.

      • TwinFalls says:

        That Warnock is even questionable to win is mind blowing to me.

      • BeanieBean says:

        @TwinFalls: in GA, questioning football, or a football player, is equivalent to questioning god. You just don’t do it.

    There will be much invoking of 5th Amendment rights when Giuliani and Graham are forced to go on record. As the pundits are saying this morning, watching Giuliani completely tank his professional reputation, his whole career, over the past years of his Trumpism is shocking and sad. Graham is another acolyte who’s lost any credibility he’d ever accrued over his devotion to TFG. The saying, ETTD (Everything Trump Touches Dies), just keeps playing out every day. You love to see it.

    • SarahCS says:

      As a non-American can I check the 5th amendment bit, it basically means you don’t have to say anything that might incriminate yourself so you can ‘no comment’ to questions you’re asked ? Is that right? Not any kind of admission but the investigators have to look elsewhere for their evidence.

      Like the ‘right to remain silent’ when you’re arrested here in the UK.

      • Crowhood says:

        You have the right to avoid self incrimination which is what the 5th is in a criminal case. In a civil case, pleading the 5th can be used to infer guilt.

      • C-Shell says:

        Basically, yes, the 5th Am protects a person whose testimony might incriminate them in criminal activity. Giuliani will also try to avoid giving testimony claiming attorney-client privilege, but that won’t give him cover when he was actively participating in the criminal conspiracies and activities.

      • Yes, it’s basically that you, on the advice of your attorney, will not answer the question based that it could be self incriminating.

        Not those exact words, but you get the gist.

        It’s been such a lovely 2 weeks!! Every morning is like Christmas morning!!! May they all be found guilty and sentenced to prison!! THIS is what happens when you have aligned yourself to Drumpf and his baseless lies!!

        As for Graham, his only positive position he had when was when McCain was alive. Now McCain is rolling over in his grave……. Grahams goose is cooked, as with Rudy. RG is hoping they sell hair color in the prison commissary.

    Forget Back to School and Spooky Season…it’s about to be Indictment SZN y’all!

  4. Mireille says:

    Oh please Georgia, be my knight in shining armor and throw both of these a**holes in prison together 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼. Help restore a cynical New Yorker’s belief in retributive justice (especially the retributive part). Amen.

  5. Owlsyn (Ableism is Not Cool) says:

    Lindsey Graham was just censured by at least one county in South Carolina because he supported gun control measures. So, the right is big mad at him. The left is big mad at him. And yet, if he avoids prison, the people will keep voting for him in droves.

  6. Seraphina says:

    Was listening to NPR this morning, I am not sure who the guest was but he stated Republicans were always most afraid of what happened in Georgia and if people would be be held accountable for those actions. Seems like they are – and the documents from MAL (His winter WH) was just a bonus karma threw at him.
