Giuliani pleads NOT GUILTY in 2020 Arizona election interference case
By Ramon Tomey // May 26, 2024

Former New York City (NYC) Mayor Rudy Giuliani has pleaded not guilty in a case accusing him of interfering with the results of the 2020 election in Arizona.

The erstwhile counsel for Former President Donald Trump issued the not guilty plea on May 21, appearing remotely for his arraignment. Giuliani was joined by other co-defendants in the case in entering not guilty pleas during the arraignment, which was held in a courtroom in Phoenix.

The other co-defendants who pleaded not guilty include:

  1. Christina Bobb, former Trump and Republican National Committee attorney
  2. Michael Roman, former Trump aide
  3. Kelli Ward, former Arizona Republican Party chairwoman
  4. Tyler Bowyer, COO for conservative youth organization Turning Point USA
  5. Arizona State Sen. Anthony Kern
  6. Greg Safsten, former Arizona GOP executive director
  7. Robert Montgomery, former Cochise County GOP chairman
  8. Samuel Moorhead, former Gila County GOP head

During his remote appearance, Giuliani said he did not have an attorney at the time, but reiterated that he would avail of one. "No, I think I am capable of handling it myself," he responded when asked whether he needed counsel appointed for the arraignment.

According to the former mayor, he received a summons but did not have a copy of the indictment with him. Despite this, he told the court he was familiar with the charges against him, having read about them.

Prosecutors requested that Giuliani post a $10,000 secured appearance bond in cash after outlining the difficulty of serving him in the case. They had been unable to serve the indictment to the mayor for weeks. Giuliani was only served the indictment during his 80th birthday celebration in Florida, according to a statement by the office of Arizona Attorney General (AG) Kris Mayes.

"I have a fair number of threats, including death threats, and I don't have security anymore. So I have very strict rules about who gets up and who doesn't," Giuliani said during the arraignment. In response, the judge required him to appear in Arizona within the next 30 days for booking procedures, alongside the cash bond he posted.

Trump wasn't charged, but was referenced in the indictment

"In Arizona and the U.S., the people elected Joseph Biden as president on Nov. 3, 2020," the indictment read. "Unwilling to accept this fact, defendants and unindicted co-conspirators schemed to prevent the lawful transfer of the presidency to keep Unindicted Co-conspirator 1 in office against the will of Arizona's voters. This scheme would have deprived Arizona voters of their right to vote and have their votes counted."

While Trump himself wasn't charged in the case, it was suggested that he was an "unindicted co-conspirator 1" in the indictment. Authorities in the Grand Canyon State unveiled the felony charges last month against Republicans who submitted a document to Congress attesting Trump's victory in Arizona, which was marred due to the widespread vote fraud there.

Two former Trump aides and five lawyers connected to the former president were included in the list of defendants. Attorney and former law professor John Eastman earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges during his arraignment. Jenna Ellis, another defendant and former Trump lawyer, had earlier entered a guilty plea to a similar indictment in Georgia brought forward by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Wills.

The Arizona GOP denounced Mayes' office for the charges after the indictment was unsealed. It described the charges as "pure election interference" in a statement, adding that their timing was "suspiciously convenient and politically motivated" due to the proximity to the 2024 presidential election.

The statement also blasted Mayes, a Democrat elected during the 2022 midterm elections. According to the Arizona GOP, the AG is utilizing "politically motivated indictments and blatant abuse of legal authority aimed to disrupt, distract and interfere in the 2024 election."

Aside from Arizona and Georgia, officials in Nevada and Michigan have announced felony charges against individuals who submitted similar electoral certificates to Congress after the 2020 election.
