- Rudy Giuliani is expected to testify before a grand jury Wednesday.
- The testimony will take place behind closed doors.
- A judge ordered Giuliani to testify after he failed to appear at a July 13 hearing.
Days after learning that he is a “target” of the investigation, Rudy Giuliani is scheduled to go before a grand jury in Atlanta on Wednesday as part of the criminal investigation into potential meddling in the 2020 election.
A judge issued a summons to Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and Trump’s personal lawyer, last week, requiring him to personally appear before the case’s special grand jury. The testimony will take conducted in a private setting.
Giuliani was subpoenaed by the grand jury in early July as a material witness as part of its investigation into what Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis claimed were “organised attempts to unlawfully change the outcome of the 2020 elections.” According to the subpoena, Giuliani allegedly made statements at congressional hearings in Georgia in which he falsely claimed that “widespread voter fraud” had occurred in the state.
After Giuliani skipped a hearing on July 13 to contest the subpoena, the court first ordered him to give a testimony. When questioned on Tuesday about whether Giuliani will still testify in front of the grand jury, Costello responded, “We will be there.”
