Rudy Giuliani target of Georgia 2020 election criminal probe: report

Rudy Giuliani is being criminally investigated in Georgia for allegedly attempting to illegally overturn the 2020 election on behalf of former President Donald Trump, according to a Monday report.

Lawyers for Giuliani told the New York Times that their client was informed he was a target of the investigation Monday. As the personal lawyer for Trump, Giuliani led efforts to help the 45th president stay in power despite losing the election to Joe Biden.

The former New York mayor, who did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment, is scheduled to appear before a grand jury in Fulton County, Ga., on Wednesday.

The report emerged the same day that a federal judge ordered Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to testify before the panel, denying Graham’s claim of congressional immunity.

Graham had been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury to discuss phone calls he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which the senator allegedly asked about re-examining absentee ballots in the state “to explore the possibility of a more favorable outcome for former President Donald Trump.”

Lawyers for Giuliani have repeatedly insisted he did nothing illegal and will cooperate with any investigations. 

This a developing story.
