Giuliani is the Last of 18 Defendants to be Indicted in Arizona Fake Electors Case

Arizona’s Attorney General has recently announced that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, along with 17 other defendants, has been served an indictment in a fake elector case in the state. This indictment is related to their roles in attempting to overturn former President Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

Attorney General Kris Mayes took to social media to share the news, emphasizing that “nobody is above the law.” The charges Giuliani faces include conspiracy, fraud, and forgery. His political adviser, Ted Goodman, expressed confidence in Giuliani’s full vindication soon.

The indictment alleges that Giuliani pressured Arizona legislators and the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to change the election outcome in Arizona. Additionally, he is accused of encouraging Republican electors in Arizona and other contested states to vote for Trump.

It was confirmed that Giuliani, along with Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows, are among the indicted individuals in this case. These indictments now mean that Arizona is the fourth state where allies of the former president have faced charges related to false claims of voter fraud.

Aside from this case, Giuliani is also facing legal issues in Georgia for his role in attempting to manipulate state lawmakers to illegally appoint pro-Trump electoral college electors. Furthermore, Giuliani filed for bankruptcy after being ordered to pay a substantial sum to two former election workers for spreading false conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

Among the defendants are also 11 Arizona Republicans who submitted false documents to Congress declaring Trump’s victory in Arizona. Trump himself was not charged but was referred to as an unindicted co-conspirator in this case.

Eastman, who was charged in the fake elector case, has already pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. Arraignments are scheduled for the other defendants in the coming weeks, where more details about the case are expected to emerge.

Overall, these indictments represent a significant development in the ongoing legal battles surrounding the 2020 election and the attempts to overturn its results. It shows that no matter how high-profile or powerful individuals may be, they are still accountable for their actions under the law.
