Giuliani now a target of Atlanta-area Trump probe, attorney says

Posted on

The Fulton DA’s office declined to comment on the development.

The development is the latest indication of the increasingly acute legal threats facing Trump and his top allies. While Trump has spent the past week under intense scrutiny for maintaining boxes of highly classified records at his Mar-a-Lago resort, federal investigators continue to probe his effort to overturn the 2020 election, and Atlanta-area prosecutors are doing the same, with a focus on his efforts to pressure Georgia officials to reverse his defeat.

Last month, Willis also informed 16 Trump supporters and state GOP officials who signed certificates claiming to be qualified presidential electors that they were also targets of the probe. Giuliani was among the Trump allies who spearheaded the effort in multiple states to designate “alternate” presidential electors, part of a bid to subvert the election when the process reached Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.

Earlier Monday, a federal judge in Georgia ruled that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) could not quash a subpoena to testify before the grand jury, rejecting his claim that he’s constitutionally immune to investigators’ demands. Graham said he intends to appeal the ruling.
