The Fulton County DA is investigating Rudi Giuliani for his efforts to get the Georgia legislature to help Donald Trump overturn the results of the presidential election by replacing the duly appointed slate of electors to the Electoral College with a slate of electors loyal to Donald Trump.
As previously reported, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has launched investigations into phone calls to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger from Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Now, you can add Rudy Giuliani to the list of people currently under investigation by DA Willis.
Giuliani is being investigated for comments made to a Georgia State Senate committee on December 3, where he claimed that “there’s more than ample evidence to conclude this election was a sham,” and urged them to push for a slate of electors loyal to Donald Trump.
Two days after Guiliani’s appearance before the senate committee, Donald Trump called Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) and pressured him to call a special session of the legislature to replace the slate of Biden electors with the slate of electors loyal to him. Trump then called Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr and urged him not to oppose and attempt in the courts to challenge the Georgia election.
Three Days after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified the state’s election results, Giuliani testified, via Zoom, to a Georgia House committee where he repeated false claims that Atlanta poll workers had counted suitcases full of illegal ballots saying that “They look like they’re passing out dope.”
On December 30, Giuliani told a Georgia Senate committee that thousands of dead people voted in the Georgia election.
“You had 10,315 people that we can determine from obituaries were dead when they voted,” he told the committee. “So, right away, that number you submitted to Washington is a lie. It’s not true! It’s false!”
The Georgia Secretary of State’s office concluded that there were only two cases of votes being cast from the grave.
Georgia law prohibits making any false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement to any department or agency of state government.
This comes on the heels of reports that Trump’s political appointees in the Department of Justice blocked Manhattan prosecutors from obtaining a warrant for electronic records pertaining to Giuliani’s his dealings in Ukraine.
