Rudy Giuliani Is Target of Criminal Probe In Georgia
“Lawyers for Rudy Giuliani have been told that he is a target of a criminal investigation in Georgia into election interference by Donald Trump and his advisers,” the New York Timesreports.

“Mr. Giuliani is scheduled to appear before the special grand jury on Monday at a downtown Atlanta courthouse… Mr. Giuliani would probably invoke attorney-client privilege if asked questions about his dealings with Mr. Trump.”
