A federal judge found former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani liable for defaming two Georgia election workers who he had accused of fraud during the 2020 presidential election.
U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell found Giuliani liable and ordered him to pay a massive fee of $130,000 to cover attorney's fees for Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Wandrea’ ArShaye Moss.
Giuliani accused the pair of election fraud when he was working as a lawyer for former President Donald Trump.
Giuliani claimed that the two had engaged in fraud while counting ballots at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
Giuliani admitted that he had no evidence for his claims but nonetheless argues that his accusations were protected under the 1st Amendment. That will be determined in the next stage of Giuliani's trial.
The left is out to get revenge on anyone who dared question the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. With the justice department on their side, it has been easy dragging Trump and his allies into court.
The irony is while every possible misdeed by Trump's allies has ended up with serious court proceedings, not a single allegation of voter fraud was litigated by the justice department.
The message is loud and clear, Trump and his allies will face the full force of the law while the law will look the other way when it comes to legitimate questions about one of the most important elections in modern history.
Ted Goodman, one of Giuliani's advisors responded to the ruling saying that the decision, "is a prime example of the weaponization of our justice system, where the process is the punishment. This decision should be reversed, as Mayor Giuliani is wrongly accused of not preserving electronic evidence that was seized and held by the FBI."
None of that matters to Judge Howell who is clearly not interested in letting one of Trump's closest advisors get away without serious legal repercussions.
Giuliani is just one of the many Trump allies that have found themselves in the justice system's cross hairs. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that he will be the only one found guilty and ordered to pay massive legal fees.
Giuliani was recently hauled into the Fulton County Jail and had a mugshot taken alongside Trump and 17 other defendants.
More likely than not, multiple Trump allies could find themselves convicted of process crimes. And even if none of them are convicted, the damage will still be done and the message of intimidation will be seen by the nation.
Anyone who dares to stand by the former President against the Democrat Party will find themselves fighting for their freedom against political prosecutors who are out to punish their political opponents.
