Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, surrendered to Georgia authorities on Wednesday after he was indicted last week for his role in an alleged conspiracy to undo Joe Biden’s win in the state.
Giuliani, 79, was among 18 allies of former president Donald Trump that were indicted by a grand jury in Fulton County on Aug. 14. The former New York City mayor’s bond was set at $150,000.
The case, brought forth by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, alleges that Trump, 77, and his co-defendants committed over a dozen felonies — including violating the Georgia RICO Act — in an attempt to overturn the state’s November 2020 election results.
The former New York City mayor is facing 13 charges from the office of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, including violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, and conspiracy to commit false statements and writings. Nineteen people are charged in the case, among them the former president.
Prior to traveling to Atlanta for his surrender, Giuliani told he was feeling “very, very good” because he was “fighting for justice.”
He also exited his black SUV to address reporters after his booking.
“I am very honored to be involved in this case. This case is a fight for our way of life,” Giuliani said.
He then recited one of Trump’s favorite lines: “If this can happen to me — probably the most prolific prosecutor maybe in American history, and the most effective mayor, for sure — it can happen to you.”
Giuliani reportedly enlisted the help of Bernie Kerik, a former New York City police commissioner who is identified as “co-conspirator 5” in the indictment, to find a Georgia-based lawyer to represent him.
Local counsel Brian Tevis represented Giuliani in bond negotiations on Wednesday, but told reporters “it remains to be seen” whether he will represent the former mayor in the case beyond the bond meeting. Tevis would not say whether he was getting paid to represent Giuliani, who is embroiled in legal debt.
Among the several other allies charged in the case are Trump attorneys Sidney Powell, John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, Bob Cheeley, Ray Smith III and Kenneth Chesebro; as well as former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows; former assistant U.S. attorney general Jeffrey Clark; former Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer; and current Georgia state Sen. Shawn Still.
Additional defendants include a GOP strategist, local elections officials, an Atlanta bail bondsman, a publicist, an Illinois pastor and a onetime congressional candidate.
