election investigation

Rudy Giuliani, former member of Donald Trump’s legal team and advocate for overturning the 2020 presidential election results in crucial states, recently underwent an interview with investigators from the special counsel’s office of the Justice Department, as revealed by an anonymous source familiar with the matter.

The interview was conducted voluntarily and did not take place before a grand jury. The undisclosed questions asked during the interview remain unknown.

This interview signifies the ongoing active investigation led by special counsel Jack Smith, as his team of prosecutors scrutinizes the attempts made by Trump and his associates to invalidate the election results in the weeks leading up to the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

In other news:

  1. Ivanka Trump has been dismissed from a fraud lawsuit filed by the New York attorney general against her father.

  2. Haley expressed the opinion that Trump did not do enough to address China’s threats and warned of potential global conflict if Ukraine falls.

  3. A Georgia elections official will speak to federal prosecutors who are investigating Trump’s endeavors to overturn the 2020 election loss.

  4. A reappointment vote for Wisconsin’s top elections official ended in a partisan deadlock, highlighting the battleground state’s political division.

Earlier this month, Smith filed a separate case charging Trump with the illegal retention of classified documents at his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida.

As Trump’s lawyer, Giuliani actively pursued baseless legal challenges to the election results. The legal team filed lawsuits in key states, presenting unsupported claims of extensive election fraud, despite statements from officials, including Trump’s own Attorney General William Barr, denying the existence of such widespread issues.

Giuliani’s involvement has made him a significant figure in various investigations. He previously underwent interviews with a House committee investigating the events leading up to the January 6 attack and with prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia, who are examining efforts to undermine the state’s election.

For several months, Justice Department prosecutors have been investigating the extent of involvement Trump’s legal advisors had in attempting to overturn the election. Last July, conservative lawyer John Eastman, who assisted Trump in challenging the election results, reported that federal agents had seized his phone.

At the time of this rewrite, there has been no immediate response from the special counsel’s office regarding a request for comment sent via email.

The initial report of Giuliani’s interview was first made by CNN.
