Rudy Giuliani denies attacking Trump at the January 6 inquest


Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, vehemently denied Tuesday that he “attacked” the former president during the Justice Department’s investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021 riot and efforts to reverse the 2020 presidential election.

The denial came on the day Trump said he received a letter from Special Counsel Jack Smith saying he was a target of the DOJ investigation on Jan. 6, hinting at a possible indictment.

Ted Goodman, Giuliani’s political adviser, told CNN’s Paula Reid shared that Giuliani did not receive a targeted letter and that he does not expect his client to be charged in the case.

The attorney also appeared interested in dispelling suspicions that Giuliani may have been cooperating with prosecutors investigating Trump.

“Any speculation that Mayor Rudy Giuliani has spoken out against President Donald Trump is as false as previous lies that America’s mayor was somehow a Russian agent,” Goodman said in a statement on Twitter.

Goodman continued, “To attack President Trump — as many fantasize in the anti-Trump media — Mayor Giuliani would have had to commit perjury because all the information he has on the case points to President Trump’s innocence.”

Giuliani, who made baseless voter fraud allegations after Trump’s 2020 defeat and encouraged the then-president to fight the results in contested states, has already spoken to prosecutors, reportedly under a bid agreement that allows an individual to offer information in exchange for consent prosecutors not to use this information against them.

The New York Times reported that Giuliani was asked about the sham election scheme and the roles of Trump attorneys John Eastman and Sidney Powell.

Trump wrote in a Truth Social post on Tuesday that he had “driven Jack Smith insane” and sent his attorneys a letter saying he was “TARGET” of the investigation and had “a very short four days to complete.” to report to the grand jury, which almost always means”. an arrest and indictment.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy continued to support Trump, implying that the special counsel was politically motivated.

“I think under a Biden administration, Biden America, you would expect that,” McCarthy said. “If you noticed, President Trump has recently risen in the polls and even overtaken President Biden for re-election. So what are you doing now? Arm the government to go after their No. 1 adversary.”

Trump has already faced two other indictments, first in New York for his role in a hush-moon scheme and then in the Justice Department case for his mishandling of classified documents. He is also under investigation in Georgia for attempting to reverse Joe Biden’s 2020 win in the state.

Giuliani was informed last year that he is a target of the Georgian probe, and later testified before a grand jury in the event of. The prosecutor in that investigation has indicated she could rule on the charges next month.

Meanwhile, Michigan’s Attorney General on Tuesday charged each of the 16 Republicans who posed as fake Trump voters after the 2020 election with eight felonies.
