More evidence that Rudy Giuliani is an idiot

A grand jury in Arizona recommended indictments against Rudy Giuliani and 17 other people for their involvement in the fake electors scheme they concocted to try and overturn the 2020 election.

Among the defendants in the Arizona case are 11 Arizona Republicans who submitted a document to Congress falsely declaring that Trump won in Arizona in the 2020 presidential election — including a former state GOP chair, a 2022 US Senate candidate and two sitting state lawmakers. The other defendants are Mike Roman, who was Trump’s director of election day operations, and four attorneys accused of organizing an attempt to use fake documents to persuade Congress not to certify Biden’s victory: John Eastman, Christina Bobb, Boris Epshteyn and Jenna Ellis.

Also included was Mark Meadows, who was White House chief of staff at the time of this attempt.

The Arizona attorney general Kris Mayes was able to serve all but Giuliani with the legal notice of their indictments but Giuliani had managed to successfully avoid the process server.

But Giuliani is an idiot. His friends threw a publicized 80th birthday party for him in Palm Springs, Florida. at the home of a GOP consultant Caroline Wren, During the party, at 8:40 pm, Giuliani taunted Mayes with a tweet saying ““If Arizona authorities can’t find me by tomorrow morning: 1. They must dismiss the indictment; 2. They must concede they can’t count votes”.

Although he quickly deleted the tweet, the AG’s office had a screenshot of it and at 11:00pm, they served him with the indictment at his party.

Most of the 200 guests were gone by the time the duo showed up around 11 p.m., but some of the stragglers began screaming – including one woman who cried as Giuliani was handed the papers, according to sources.

“While crime in Arizona is at an all-time high, the Arizona [AG’s] office felt it was a good use of resources to send multiple agents across the country to storm an 80th birthday party like it was Normandy,” fumed Wren.

Mayes posted her response to Giuliani’s tweet.

Giuliani, after avoiding being served for so long, now claims that it is not a big deal.

    Yet, somehow Giuliani went to college, law school, and passed the bar exam. Based on the evidence we all see, how?

    And BTW, this is bullshit:

    If Arizona authorities can’t find me by tomorrow morning: 1. They must dismiss the indictment.

    Yeah, the first scheduled hearing was coming up, but if they don’t manage to serve you, it just means you miss the hearing (and they probably put out a warrant for your arrest). It’s like thinking I can kill somebody, cross the state line, not show up for the first hearing, and I’m off scott-free. That’s not how this works.

    Which returns us to my question in the first paragraph.

    He didn’t say it because he believes it, he said it so when he’s eventually arrested for evading a summons (or whatever) he could claim that it’s being done illegally. His (and Trump’s) followers could then claim it’s all a political hit job because they missed the deadline to serve him, so he gets to go free.

    I find this very hard to believe. Rudy has two hundred friends? I’d also like to see what evidence there is that AZ crime is at an all-time high. Anyhow, he can still sleep at night knowing that his dear friend SSAT will cover his legal expenses since Rudy did this for him.

    Rude Ruidy’s taunting of the court in this fashion will probably earn Rudy a lot of pain when sentencing is considered. And that is going to be so very entertaining when he starts squealing about the inevitable.

    “his dear friend SSAT will cover his legal expenses since Rudy did this for him”
    Do not take anything for granted.

    Friends, extended family, friends of the family. The remaining 150 or so would be flatterers and brown nosers.

    I’m sure it takes longer than two hours to fly to Florida from Arizona. It’s obvious that they planned to serve him in Palm Springs before he confirmed via tweet that he was in fact at the party.

    Good luck to the prosecution!

    “So one guy, he walked in between a couple of people who didn’t know who he was. And he handed me a folded-up, crumpling piece of paper. It was a crumpling piece of paper. It wasn’t, like, done stylishly,” Giuliani said. (Guardian)

    Without even a fanfare? How humiliating.
