Giuliani Served Legal Paperwork at Birthday Party

( – The Attorney General of Arizona, Kris Mayes, announced that former mayor of New York City, Rudy Guiliani, had been officially served with an indictment on the evening of Friday, May 17 in relation to the case against former President Donald Trump over his alleged plan to overturn the 2020 election.

Earlier in the day on the 17, Guiliani mocked Mayes on social media for not serving him with an indictment, suggesting if they didn’t find him by the next day, they’d need to dismiss his indictment and concede that he did nothing wrong. Approximately two hours after that post, Guiliani was served while leaving a party in Palm Beach, Florida, where he was celebrating his 80th birthday. The Arizona AG then quoted Guiliani’s post, telling the world he was, in fact, served with his indictment, adding that no one is “above the law.” Guiliani’s post directed at Mayes has now been deleted, though Mayes did include a screenshot of Guiliani’s post that is still visible.

According to the indictment, Guiliani falsely claimed that widespread voter fraud is the reason why Joe Biden won the 2020 election and “pressured” legislators and electors in Arizona to certify former President Donald Trump as the winner of the election. Guiliani is one of eleven people who have been indicted in Arizona alongside Trump. The first person charged in the case, a former attorney of Trump’s named John Eastman, pled not guilty during an appearance in court on May 17.

The indictment is one of many legal issues currently facing Guiliani. He is also facing over a dozen charges in an election subversion case alongside Trump in Georgia and is also considered a co-conspirator in the federal case against Trump for election subversion. In addition, two voting technology companies are suing him for defamation after he claimed they rigged the 2020 election.

Guiliani’s spokesman, Ted Goodman, released a statement that Guiliani was “unfazed” over being served with an indictment at his party, despite the attempt to “embarrass” him. Goodman included that the former mayor is looking forward to “full vindication” after his trial.
