Rudy Giuliani Will Appear Before January 6th House Select Committee Next Month

After months of negotiations, Rudy Giuliani is finally set to appear before the January 6th House Select Committee within the next few weeks.

The former Mayor of New York, who served as former Donald Trump’s personal attorney for much of his administration, reached an agreement with the Committee in response to their subpoena from January. Giuliani has been engaging with lawmakers through his own lawyer regarding the scope of the subpoena and whether he may be able to comply with some requests.

The subpoena from the House Select Committee alleges Giuliani played a major role in the plan to block the certification of the 2020 Presidential election, saying Giuliani “actively promoted claims of election fraud on behalf of the former President and sought to convince state legislators to take steps to overturn the election results.” The subpoena also states Giuliani was in contact with Trump and members of Congress “regarding strategies for delaying or overturning the results of the 2020 election.”

The Committee is also interested in Giuliani’s efforts in December 2020 in the so-called “Fake Electors” scheme in the seven states that Trump lost. Giuliani may be willing to testify about claims of election fraud but he informed the Select Committee that he did not intend to waive executive or attorney-client privilege.

The negotiations with the Committee are just the latest in a string of legal woes for the troubled former Mayor. Giuliani also faces legal jeopardy on several other fronts. Federal prosecutors in New York may soon reach a charging decision regarding his foreign lobbying efforts involving Ukraine, and he also faces possible additional fines or settlements for his actions trying to overturn the 2020 election results to favor Trump. And Dominion Voting Systems has filed a billion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Giuliani for his unfounded election fraud claims.
