Arizona’s attorney general confirms that Rudy Guiliani has filed charges after mocking prosecutors

Attorney General of Arizona Kris Mayes (D) confirmed via social media that the former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani had been served in the state’s 2020 election case against him.

‘The last defendant was summoned a few moments ago. @RudyGiuliani no one is above the law,” Mayes posted on social media platform X.

Mayes responded to a post from Giuliani that has now been deleted. He said: “If Arizona authorities cannot find me by tomorrow morning: 1. They should dismiss the charges; 2. They must admit that they cannot count votes.”

Guiliani, along with other Trump allies and Arizona Republicans, was indicted for allegedly attempting to prevent the lawful transition of power in the 2020 presidential election. Prosecutors say they devised a scheme so that fake voters would falsely claim election fraud so that Arizona election officials would feel pressured to overturn the results.

The other defendants had already been charged, but Giuliani was unable to catch the charges. Prosecutors say they have been unable to find the former mayor-turned-lawyer so they could officially serve him with a summons or notice that he had been criminally charged.

Users online pointed out that Giuliani, who held a live stream online before his 80th birthdaye birthday, wore the same tie in his now-deleted post in which he blasted Arizona officials.

He was hosting a birthday party in Palm Beach, Florida, with nearly 75 guests, when two officials from Mayes’ office served him around 11 p.m., sources told The New York Post.

“The mayor was not impressed with the decision to embarrass him at the age of 80e birthday party. He enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people who love him – from all walks of life – and we look forward to full vindication soon,” Ted Goodman said in a statement to The Hill.
