As part of the investigation into Georgia's election interference, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has been added to the list of individuals who have been indicted. These include his attorney John Dowd and Mark Meadows, who was the former White House chief of staff.
Despite his innocence, Giuliani's critics have called his situation a scandal that further highlights the former mayor's past controversies.
Giuliani will be relying on Trump's legal team as he prepares to go to trial. The president confirmed on Thursday that he would surrender to authorities. This further highlights the ongoing drama surrounding the case.
His legal team will fight to have the case transferred to federal court. They claim that the district attorney has no authority to investigate actions that were allegedly done by former federal employees, and it will likely be a major story in the coming weeks.
As the District Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Kim Willis is facing the challenges of navigating the public's opinion. In 2020, she was elected as a Democrat, and she has been accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a criminal gang leader. This comes after a state senator in Georgia called for an emergency session to discuss the prosecutorial conduct of her office.
The case has been referred to as a political battle, and its outcome could impact both Giuliani and Willis' futures. Follow developments as the trial unfolds.
