Rudy Giuliani Concedes False Statements in Defamation Suit over Georgia Election Workers


Former NYC Mayor Acknowledges Falsity of Election Fraud Allegations against Ruby Freeman and Wandrea "Shaye" Moss in Washington D.C. Federal Court

Washington, D.C. - In a surprising turn of events, former New York City mayor and ex-attorney for former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, has conceded to making false statements about two Georgia election workers in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Giuliani's admission was revealed in a court filing related to a defamation lawsuit filed against him by Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea "Shaye" Moss.

The defamation lawsuit, brought before the federal court in Washington, D.C., accused Giuliani of making baseless allegations against Freeman and Moss, who were accused of mishandling ballots during the 2020 election. Giuliani's latest court filing, submitted on Tuesday, shows that he no longer contests the factual allegations made by the plaintiffs.

"While Giuliani does not admit to Plaintiffs' allegations, he — for purposes of this litigation only — does not contest the factual allegations," the court documents read.

The declaration signed by Giuliani further acknowledges that his statements were defamatory and false, carrying a meaning that harmed the reputation of Freeman and Moss. He also acknowledged that his comments were "actionable," meaning that they could be legally pursued for damages. Despite these concessions, Giuliani maintains that he believes he has legal defenses to the lawsuit and claims that his statements were constitutionally protected.

Michael J. Gottlieb, the attorney representing Moss and Freeman, expressed the significance of Giuliani's admission. "Giuliani's stipulation concedes what we have always known to be true — Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss honorably performed their civic duties in the 2020 presidential election in full compliance with the law; and the allegations of election fraud he and former-President Trump made against them have been false since day one," Gottlieb said in a statement.

The false accusations against Freeman and Moss, including claims that they manipulated ballots, led to a disturbing and threatening situation for the two women. They received racist death threats, forcing them to conceal their identities, and Moss was compelled to leave her job at the Fulton County Elections Department due to the severity of the threats.

Giuliani's involvement in promoting a video allegedly showing the two women manipulating ballots added fuel to the conspiracy theories about election fraud spread by former President Donald Trump and his allies. Freeman was mentioned 18 times in a leaked phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, where Trump berated Raffensperger to overturn the state's election results.

It's important to note that Donald Trump himself is currently under a criminal investigation in Fulton County, Georgia, for his attempts, along with his allies, to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.

Giuliani's recent court filing signifies a significant development in the ongoing defamation case, as it brings to light the falsity of the accusations he made against Freeman and Moss. As the legal proceedings continue, the court will ultimately determine the full extent of damages sought by the plaintiffs and further assess Giuliani's defenses in this high-profile case.
