How Rudy Giuliani tried, and failed, to avoid his latest indictment

Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, recently faced an indictment from federal authorities concerning his activities involving Ukraine. Giuliani tried using a wide array of strategies to avoid this indictment but ultimately failed.

The charges allege that he violated lobbying laws by not registering his efforts to push then-President Trump’s administration to conduct investigations in Ukraine that they believed would be advantageous to their political endeavours.

In attempts to avoid the indictment, Giuliani deployed a multi-faceted approach. This included legal maneuvers, engaging with the media, using political connections, and seeking the protection of President Trump’s influence.

Legally, Giuliani and his cohort strongly denied any wrongdoing, characterizing their actions as a defense of Trump rather than lobbying. In the media, Giuliani frequently utilized his platform to advocate for his innocence and discredit the investigation. Politically, Giuliani attempted to leverage his close relationship with Trump to gain his support and potentially stifle the investigation.

However, these strategies failed to assist Giuliani in avoiding the indictment. His legal arguments were not acknowledged by the investigators, his media appearances often exacerbated his legal complications, and while Trump did support Giuliani, he was unable to prevent the indictment from materializing due to the separation of powers in the U.S. constitution.

Furthermore, after leaving office, Trump’s ability to protect Giuliani greatly diminished. Despite his attempts to argue his innocence and leverage his connections, Giuliani is now awaiting trial for the charges leveled against him.
