“This is yet another abuse of the Sixth Amendment. I was his lawyer in that case. My statements are either legally confidential because they were just the two of us, or they were made on his behalf to protect him,” Giuliani said.
“When lawyers who defend their clients become defendants, it means that we already live in a fascist state. Look, my office just got raided. I didn’t even think I would live to see this,” Giuliani commented.
Giuliani’s attorney previously confirmed to The Hill that he is one of the defendants in the grand jury investigation into attempts by Trump and his allies to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia.
The subpoena names Giuliani as “former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney” and “a lead attorney for the Trump campaign in its efforts to influence the results of the November 2020 elections in Georgia and other states.”
The subpoena alleges that Giuliani testified and provided evidence in an attempt to prove that the 2020 Georgia election was rigged — including video of election commissioners in Atlanta sneaking in “suitcases” of fake ballots from unknown sources.
“There is evidence that the witness’ appearance and his testimony at the hearing were part of a coordinated plan by the Trump campaign to influence the results of the November 2020 elections in Georgia and other states,” the subpoena said.
