On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump launched into a furious tirade on Truth Social after receiving a target letter from special counsel Jack Smith in the January 6 investigation. However, his partner in crime, his former attorney, ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, somehow evaded a similar fate after meeting with prosecutors.
Not only Giuliani avoided a target letter, but he does not expect to be charged either after he completed a voluntary interview with special counsel investigators, his attorney told CNN’s Paula Reid.
Giuliani avoiding charges suggests that he may have “flipped to some degree,” national security attorney Bradley Moss tweeted in response.
While Giuliani may have evaded charges in connection to the federal probe, he’s not out of the woods yet.
“Rudy has decent odds of being charged in Georgia,” tweeted Georgia State University Law Prof. Anthony Michael Kreis.
JUST IN: Rudy Giuliani has NOT received a target letter in 1/6 probe, his lawyer tells me. As CNN previously reported, Rudy, did a voluntary interview with Special Counsel investigators several weeks back. His lawyer does not expect him to be charged.

Sounds like Rudy flipped to some degree. https://t.co/potYEtkao4

Rudy has decent odds of being charged in Georgia, however. https://t.co/vvbwW9U2wf

Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis informed Giuliani last year that he is a target of her probe into Trump’s efforts to undo his 2020 election loss in the state by pressuring election officials to produce votes for him. Willis is expected to issue indictments in the probe in late July or early August.
But the possibility of Giuliani flipping on his former boss is nothing less than thrilling.
