Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who became President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, was ordered to appear next month before a special grand jury investigating potential election interference in Georgia’s 2020 election, according to a court filing.
The move comes after Giuliani failed to appear before a New York court to fight his subpoena on Wednesday. The move solidifies Giuliani’s position as the highest-profile member of Trump’s inner circle who will testify in a criminal investigation that poses the most serious immediate legal risks to Trump and his allies.
Giuliani was of several of Trump’s legal advisers who have been subpoenaed by the special grand jury related to their role in potentially tampering with or hamstringing Georgia’s election administration.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) has also subpoenaed John Eastman, the conservative lawyer who advanced the legal theory that undergirded the procedural objections of Jan. 6, 2021, and Trump campaign lawyers Jenna Ellis and Kenneth Chesebro, among others.
Willis hasn’t ruled out subpoenaing Trump himself should his testimony become of interest to grand jurors.
On Tuesday, court filings showed that prosecutors have notified 16 Republicans who participated in a plot to certify fake electoral college votes for Trump in Georgia that they’re now “targets” of the criminal probe.
The special grand jury seated at the start of June has identified more than 100 persons of interest in its sprawling investigation. Grand jurors have already heard testimony from Georgia’s attorney general, secretary of state, state lawmakers and local election officials. Gov. Brian Kemp (R) is set to submit a sworn written statement next week.

Rudy is a tool. I'm not sure what value a grand jury expects to get from his testimony though.

Judges hate this kind of stuff, and Fani Willis will offer to send lawyers to Rudy if needed.
