A State Attorney General’s Office Apparently Crashed Rudy Giuliani’s 80th Birthday Bash


Journalist Rachel Louise Just, who works with an ABC affiliate in Arizona, reported on X (formerly Twitter) this week that Rudy Giuliani was apparently served with his indictment in an Arizona criminal case just after guests at a Florida birthday party for the ex-mayor finished singing “Happy Birthday” to him.

“I’m told guests had just finished singing “happy birthday” when agents served him paperwork on AZ fake elector charges. Trump strategists Roger Stone/Steve Bannon were also present,” explained Just’s post.

Giuliani was the last defendant to get served with a copy of their indictment in the Arizona case, which hinges — as Just referenced — on the assembling in Arizona of a slate of sham electors backing Trump after the 2020 election despite Joe Biden winning the state. Other defendants in this case include prominent names like ex-White House official Mark Meadows and legal figure John Eastman, the latter of whom was recently suspended from practicing law in both California and Washington, D.C., in connection to a disciplinary case stemming from his alleged post-2020 election roles in then-President Trump’s corner.

Giuliani himself was already suspended on similar grounds in both New York and the nation’s capital, and in the latter jurisdiction, a third legal figure tied to Trump — ex-Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark — is facing disciplinary proceedings too. And on top of this, there was recently a ruling in Texas allowing a similarly originating disciplinary case against state Attorney General Ken Paxton to move forward, though further stages of the dispute remained after Paxton tried targeting Biden’s wins in several other states with a post-2020 election court case.

So, considering all of this, it doesn’t seem like a great time to be someone who was involved in or closely connected to the highly publicized targeting of Biden’s 2020 victory!
