Former President Donald Trump has issued a concise four-sentence statement in response to the arrest of his former personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in Fulton County, Georgia.

Giuliani surrendered to authorities in Atlanta on Wednesday, where he faces charges related to a racketeering case. He stands accused of assisting Trump and 17 others in their efforts to overturn the results of Georgia’s 2020 presidential election. Giuliani’s bond has been set at $150,000.

A prominent legal figure who served as Trump’s attorney following the 2020 election, Giuliani played a significant role in promoting the former president’s baseless claims of election fraud. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has charged Giuliani with 13 counts, including violations of the state’s RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act.

Taking to his Truth Social account, Trump commented on Giuliani’s arrest: “The greatest Mayor in the history of New York City was just ARRESTED in Atlanta, Georgia, because he fought for Election Integrity. THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED & STOLEN [sic]. HOW SAD FOR OUR COUNTRY. MAGA!”

Both Trump and Giuliani are central figures in a 41-count indictment, with the former president facing 13 counts, including a RICO charge. Other individuals implicated in Willis’ investigation include Mark Meadows, Trump’s former White House chief of staff, and several close associates of the former president. Notably, attorney Sidney Powell also turned herself into Atlanta authorities on the same day.


Prosecutors allege that Trump and his co-defendants devised a scheme to submit false electors, aiming to unlawfully declare Trump as the winner of Georgia in the 2020 election. Willis granted immunity to eight of the 16 suspected fake electors during her investigation. Trump is also accused of attempting similar tactics in six other states, including Michigan, where 16 individuals are facing charges.

The investigation also focused on a phone call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in January 2021, during which the former president asked him to “find” enough votes for him to win the state.

Trump maintains that his inquiries into the 2020 election were legitimate and asserts that he and his allies did not commit any unlawful acts. He views the numerous criminal charges against him as a form of election interference in the context of his 2024 reelection campaign.

Following his release, Giuliani commented to reporters outside the courthouse about his involvement in the case, stating, “I’m very, very honored to be involved in this case because this case is a fight for our way of life.”
