Ex-White House Aide Says Giuliani Groped Her; Ex-NYC Mayor Sued by Law Firm for Unpaid Fees

HeadlineSep 22, 2023

Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson has accused Rudy Giuliani of groping her on January 6, 2021, shortly before the Capitol insurrection. In her new book “Enough,” Hutchinson described Giuliani slipping his hand “under my blazer, then my skirt” while they were backstage at Trump’s speech. A Giuliani spokesperson has denied the claim.

Meanwhile, the lawyer who had been leading Giuliani’s defense in his litany of legal challenges sued the former New York City mayor for $1.3 million in unpaid fees he owes his law firm.

This comes as Georgia election workers Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss said in a court filing Thursday that Giuliani has failed to comply with a federal judge’s order to turn over evidence and pay $89,000 in legal fees as part of their defamation case against the former Trump lawyer.
