Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani expressed little surprise over the controversy surrounding Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, accused of hiring a romantic partner to prosecute him and former President Donald Trump. Giuliani, along with Trump and 13 others, faces charges related to alleged attempts to subvert Georgia’s 2020 election results. Giuliani asserted that the corruption in Atlanta and Fulton County, where the trial is taking place, supports Trump’s belief that the election was stolen. Despite pleading not guilty, Giuliani anticipates the dismissal of the case, considering it weak from the outset.
Giuliani Alleges Systemic Corruption in Fulton County
Giuliani labeled Atlanta and Fulton County as among the most corrupt places in America, arguing that the controversy surrounding Willis and her alleged romantic partner validates Trump’s suspicions of election theft.
A motion filed by co-defendant Mike Roman claimed the prosecution is invalid due to the questionable appointment of special prosecutor Nathan Wade, who is accused of funding lavish vacations with Willis using taxpayer money.
Giuliani criticized Willis for authorizing $600,000 of taxpayer money for what he deemed an unnecessary grand jury investigation, asserting that she, not he or Trump, belongs in jail.
Giuliani Predicts Case Dismissal, Criticizes Legal System
Giuliani expressed confidence that the case against Trump, himself, and the other defendants will be dropped, characterizing it as a weak prosecution targeting him for being an aggressive lawyer.
Emphasizing the perceived absurdity of the charges, Giuliani argued that he is being prosecuted for actions common to many lawyers, particularly those who take on challenging cases.
In summary, Giuliani remains vocal in his criticism of the case, alleging corruption within the legal proceedings and expressing optimism about its dismissal.
