Giuliani Invokes ‘Attorney-Client Privilege’, Decries ‘Fascist State’ As Indictment Looms Over His Head

Reacting to the news that he’s the target of an investigation into the Georgia 2020 elections, former New York major and disgraced attorney Rudy Giuliani slammed the report and said that “we’re starting to live in a fascist state.”

“It’s just a further desecration of the Sixth Amendment. I was his lawyer of record in that case, Giuliani told Newsmax, referring to former President Donald Trump. “The statements that I made are either attorney-client privilege, because they were between me and him, or they were being made on his behalf in order to defend him,” he added.

“When you start turning around lawyers into defendants when they’re defending their clients, we’re starting to live in a fascist state. Look, I’ve already had my law office raided. I never thought I’d ever see that happen.”

Multiple news outlets reported Monday that he was a target as part of an investigation looking into efforts that Trump and his allies took to overturn the 2020 election results that is being conducted by a special grand jury in Georgia.

The subpoena for Giuliani identifies him as both “a personal attorney for former President Donald Trump and a lead attorney for the Trump Campaign’s legal efforts seeking to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere.”

The subpoena alleges that Giuliani offered testimony and evidence in an effort to show that election fraud occurred in Georgia in 2020, including a video of “election workers at State Farm Arena in Atlanta that purported to show election workers producing ‘suitcases’ of unlawful ballots from unknown sources, outside the view of election poll watchers.” The subpoena says that while Georgia officials had quickly debunked the video after the fact, Giuliani continued to make assertions that election fraud had taken place, including using the video footage.
