Rudy Giuliani bond set at $150K in Georgia Trump case; he’s booked at Fulton jail

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who served as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, was granted a $150,000 bond after attorneys representing him met with Fulton prosecutors Wednesday afternoon.

He appeared a short time later at the Fulton jail to surrender and be booked on charges from his indictment in the Trump Georgia investigation. He is charged with violating the State’s RICO Act, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, two counts each of conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree and conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, three counts each of false statements and writings, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer.

Giuliani testified at three hearings in the Georgia Legislature in late 2020, where he spread conspiracy theories and falsehoods about the election, including showing lawmakers edited surveillance video of ballots being tabulated at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena and raising unfounded allegations about election workers pulling out “suitcases” of ballots.

Giuliani’s claims were quickly debunked, but he doubled down on his comments in the following weeks. He also reportedly helped coordinate the Trump electors and called Georgia’s late House Speaker David Ralston in Dec. 2020.

Trump announced he will headline a $100,000-per-plate fundraiser to help pay Giuliani’s legal bills.
