A New York judge ordered Rudy Giuliani to testify before the Georgia special grand jury that is investigating efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
In a filing in Fulton County Superior Court on July 20, District Attorney Fani Willis indicated that the New York Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber ordered Giuliani, Trump’s former lawyer, to testify on Aug. 9 “and on any such other dates as this court may order.”
The order came after Giuliani failed to appear at a hearing about blocking a Fulton County subpoena.
The grand jury subpoenaed Giuliani as a “material witness” earlier this month.
According to the subpoena, Giuliani made statements at legislative hearings in Georgia falsely claiming “widespread voter fraud” in the state.
The summons was moved to a court in New York, where Giuliani is a resident. Farber scheduled a hearing giving Giuliana an opportunity to block the summons, but he did not show.
