Mayor Rudy Giuliani, on Friday, entered a plea of not guilty

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, on Friday, entered a plea of not guilty to Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) charges filed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. These charges allege that Giuliani and others tried to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.

According to Fox 5, Giuliani also waived his right to appear at an arraignment hearing scheduled for September 6. Following this decision, Giuliani has joined former President Trump and at least ten others in choosing not to appear before the judge.

Giuliani, indicted on thirteen counts, including the violation of Georgia's RICO Act, expressed his dissatisfaction with the indictment. He called it a travesty and described it as an attack on the American people after being booked at the Fulton County Jail last week.

In a court filing, Giuliani's plea was announced, stating that, due to the intricate nature, extensive scope, and substantial volume of the 98-page indictment, Giuliani requests a minimum of 30 days after receiving all discovery to file specific motions in this matter.

The events surrounding Giuliani's plea and the charges brought against him demonstrate the complex legal landscape surrounding allegations of election interference. As the case progresses, it will be imperative to closely follow the upcoming court proceedings and subsequent rulings.
