Giuliani renews his $148 million fraud charges, unfazed by the most recent legal action
Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, has reaffirmed his election-related allegations, despite recent legal consequences.
This stance comes after Giuliani was ordered to pay $148 million in damages to Georgia election workers Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss, due to the emotional distress they suffered following his accusations of ballot manipulation in 2020.
A second lawsuit has also been filed against him, aimed at preventing him from repeating these discredited claims.
Giuliani criticized the court’s decision, labeling it as a product of a “fascist system run by the Biden regime.” He maintained his belief in the truth of his allegations and argued that the lawsuit was an attempt to force him to lie.
Giuliani claimed that the judge’s decision of his guilt was not based on evidence but rather on his failure to turn over some financial documents. Despite expectations for him to testify, Giuliani did not take the stand during the four-day trial.
After the verdict, Giuliani announced his plans to appeal. The damages awarded include $75 million in punitive damages, intended to deter future defamation of election workers involved in ballot counting.
Giuliani’s recent statements, made hours after the filing of the new lawsuit, reflect his continued commitment to his claims, questioning the validity of the second suit as “un-American”
