Rudy Giuliani Testifies to Atlanta Grand Jury over Efforts to Overturn 2020 Election

HeadlineAug 18, 2022

Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has testified to a grand jury in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of a criminal probe into election interference by Trump and his supporters. Giuliani spent more than six hours at the Fulton County Courthouse for Wednesday’s closed-door proceedings, after a judge ordered him to comply with a subpoena. Prosecutors told Giuliani’s lawyers this week he could face criminal charges over efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s win in Georgia after the 2020 election.

Meanwhile, lawyers for Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp have asked a judge to throw out a subpoena ordering him to testify later this month.
