Giuliani requests Fulton County judge’s hearing on Georgia indictment dismissal


Rudy Giuliani requested on Thursday that a Georgia state judge schedule a hearing on his motion to dismiss his criminal indictment on election interference charges.

The demand comes nearly four months after the original motion, which was filed on Sept. 8.

Giuliani pled not guilty to a series of counts stemming from the large Georgia election interference case, in which 19 persons were indicted, including former President Trump. Prosecutors claimed Giuliani purposefully lied in order to persuade Georgia voters to reverse the 2020 election results.

In the September dismissal application, attorneys for the former New York City mayor stated that there were “deficiencies” in the original indictment.

“Defendant moves this Court to quash the indictment against him, as it is not perfect in form and substance, fails to provide sufficient notice as to what he must defend against at trial, and the pleadings in the said indictment are insufficient to protect him from double jeopardy in a separate prosecution,” the attorneys for the defendant wrote.

The 98-page indictment against Giuliani and the other defendants is described in the motion as a “conspiratorial bouillabaisse consisting of purported criminal acts, daily activities, and constitutionally protected speech.”

Four of the 19 defendants, including three of Trump’s attorneys, have pleaded guilty to crimes in order to avoid trial. The trial date has not yet been established, but prosecutors have recommended that it begin in August.
