Special Counsel Jack Smith is reportedly ready to indict Rudy Giuliani and other Trump lawyers for alleged crimes.
The Independent reported, “It is understood that Mr. Smith’s team is prepared to bring charges against several of the lawyers who worked for Mr. Trump, including those who assisted the ex-president in his efforts to ignore the will of voters. and staying in the White House despite losing the 2020 election. One such figure is Mr. Trump’s former personal attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
If this report is accurate, it will contextualize Giuliani’s recent voluntary meetings with federal prosecutors. Rudy Giuliani could talk to federal authorities as part of a deal to get a lesser charge that wouldn’t result in jail time. Giuliani was the coordinator of the fake voters plot.
If they materialize, the costs of Trump’s Lawyers will almost certainly be linked to the conspiracy of the fake voters. The Trump campaign has filed forged papers with the federal government naming a list of fake Trump voters for several swing states that President Biden has won. Filing the documents was a federal crime.
However, there could also be charges related to efforts by Trump’s lawyers to nullify state-level election results by pressuring election officials. A third layer of potential crime is the 1/6 attack on the Capitol.
If Jack Smith accuses Trump’s lawyers and they start to turn against him, there could be a whole new round of legal charges that would kill any dream Trump has of returning to the White House.
