Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani will be surrendering to the authorities in Georgia, following his indictment for his alleged role in pushing election fraud during the 2020 election.
“I’m going to Fulton County to comply with the law, which I always do. I don’t know if I plea today but if I do I plead not guilty,” Giuliani told reporters.
Giuliani has been charged with racketeering as part of the investigation. Donald Trump has also been charged in the case.
Following Trump’s loss to President Joe Biden in the election, Trump and other Republican operatives attempted to subvert the results of the race and have electors vote for Trump in the electoral college, even though Biden had won those votes.
The criminal charges are a significant fall from grace for Giuliani, who was heralded as a hero around the world following the attacks on New York City on 9/11.
Giuliani has been a close political ally to Trump and has promoted multiple false conspiracy theories supporting Trump and conservative causes.
Trump is also slated to turn himself in to Georgia authorities for the charges against him in the case.
