Trump tweets that Giuliani has tested positive for coronavirus while heading his legal defense to overturn Biden election victory
Giuliani is just the latest person in Trump’s circle to test positive, after Trump, the first lady, and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tested positive.
He has traveled the country making Trump’s case that the election was ‘rigged’ and that that it was ‘stolen.’
He has appeared both at legislative hearings and at unofficial Republican-run quasi-hearings where witnesses claimed massive fraud, even as judges have tossed out dozens of lawsuits.
He has regularly appeared unmasked at the events.
Giuliani’s son, Andrew, announced a positive test after attending a press conference with Trump’s ‘elite strike force’ legal team last month.
Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for coronavirus, President Trump tweeted
‘@RudyGiuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!’ Trump tweeted.
Giuliani took charge of the legal effort after former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie himself testified positive shortly after being named.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, another top campaign advisor, also tested positive in recent months.
Giuliani attended debate prep along with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Trump shortly before Christie tested positive for the virus. He was one of multiple officials at the event marking the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett that soon became known as a superspreader event.
Giuliani led the battle for Trump to try to get judges or state legislatures to turn back results in an election where he trails President-elect Joe Biden by more than 7 million votes.
On Sunday it was revealed the star witness in Trump’s ‘voter fraud’ case in Michigan was recently released from probation after being accused of sending her fiance’s ex-wife pornographic videos and then attempting to frame her of stealing them, according to reports.
Mellissa Carone, 33, was sentenced to 12 months probation for the offense in Wayne County, Michigan, in September 2019.
