Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer has emerged as one of the central figures in the investigation by Georgia prosecutors into attempting to manipulate the outcome of the presidential election. At the beginning of the summer, some of the witnesses who confirmed Giuliani’s presence were heard in a series of meetings with representatives of the Georgian Congress with whom he spoke of conspiracy theories to distort the vote.

The attorney is expected in Atlanta today to answer the plaintiffs’ questions. “If these people thought — his attorney, Robert Costello — commented that he would tell the content of conversations with President Trump, they would be disappointed.”
Also called Republican Graham
In addition to Rudy Giuliani, in the Georgia investigation into an attempt to overturn the electoral outcome of the 2020 presidential election, there is Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the big names in the Conservative Party and very loyal to the former president. The South Carolina senator was summoned to Atlanta to be heard as a witness before a special grand jury. The hearing is scheduled for August 23. Five lawyers who worked with Trump and had extensive contact with election officials were also recalled in the wake of the 2020 election.
Trump against the FBI
Meanwhile, the former president continues his crusade against the FBI, accusing the agents who conducted the Mar-a-Lago search of “stealing” his passports.
“Wow – he commented on his social platform, Truth – In the FBI raid in mar-a-Lago, they stole my three passports, one of them expired, along with something else. This is an attack on a political opponent at levels never before seen in our country. World Third “. The passports Trump is referring to are probably the American passport and the red diplomatic passport given to members of the government. It is not clear why a possible seizure is generally carried out to prevent the person subject to a search from leaving the country.
