Former New York City Mayor and personal attorney for former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, who served as a prosecutor who spent years targeting and taking down mobsters and cleaning up the streets, issued a statement on Wednesday before jetting down to Georgia to turn himself in at the Fulton County jail after charges of attempting to subvert the 2020 presidential election were brought against him by the district attorney. Once again, we are seeing the legal system being used as a weapon by progressives to silence anyone who would question the results of an election. It’s a sad day for our republic, folks.
According to the Daily Wire, “Charging documents claimed Giuliani promoted unsupported allegations of election fraud in Georgia. Prosecutors have claimed he participated in a scheme to have 16 Georgia Republicans calling themselves the state’s ‘duly elected and qualified’ electors and swear Trump had won the 2020 presidential election.”
“I don’t know if I plead today, but if I do, I plead not guilty and I get photographed,” Giuliani went on to say in his statement. “Isn’t that nice? A mug shot for the man who probably put the worst criminals of the 20th century in jail? You find a prosecutor who has a better record than mine in the last hundred years — I bet you don’t, or a mayor. And they’re going to degrade themselves by doing a mug shot of me, like people will recognize me. And then of course, they can fingerprint me, but I’ve been fingerprinted 150 times. So this will turn out exactly like the FBI search turned out. They’re lying; I’m telling the truth.”
“I’m going down to Georgia and I’m feeling very, very good about it because I feel like I’m defending the rights of all Americans as I did so many times as a United States attorney,” the former prosecutor continued. “People like to say I’m different; I’m the same Rudy Giuliani that took down the Mafia, that made New York City the safest city in America, reduced crime more than any mayor in the history of any city, anywhere. And I’m fighting for justice; I have been for the first moment I represented Donald Trump.”

Giuliani then pointed out that Trump, who has been the target of attacks from the rabid left-wing media and politicians ever since first announcing his candidacy back in 2015, has proven to be innocent several times and that his political enemies have been shown to be liars who are on a twisted quest to obliterate the rights of all American citizens. He said the left was attempting to destroy his right to be a lawyer, noting it’s not a coincidence that progressives are now targeting Trump’s attorneys.
His statement went on to echo statements made by the former president that the assault against Trump and now his legal representatives is a precursor to them coming for the average American.
“Now whether you dislike or you like Donald Trump, let me give you a warning: they’re gonna come for you. When the political winds shift, as they always do, let us pray that Republicans are more honest, more trustworthy, and more American than these people in charge of this government. Because if our government is conducted this way, and the system of justice is politicized and criminalized for politics, your rights are in jeopardy and your children’s,” the former New York City mayor said.
“Donald Trump told you this: they weren’t just coming for him, or me,” Giuliani concluded. “Now they’ve indicted people, in this case I don’t even know who they are. These are just regular people making a normal living. They’re going to bankrupt them. They won’t convict them.”
