Giuliani, who came to be known as “America’s mayor” for his leadership after the September 11, 2001 attacks, is accused along with Trump and 17 others of conspiring to subvert the will of Georgia voters in a desperate attempt to keep Joe Biden out of the White House.

Bail for the former politician was set at $150,000 (138,000 euros), below the $200,000 (184,000 euros) set for Trump.

Fulton County jail records show that Rudy Giuliani turned himself in this afternoon.

Giuliani, 79, is accused of leading Trump’s efforts to compel state legislators in Georgia and other states to illegally nominate pro-Trump voters.

Georgia was one of several key states where Trump lost by slim margins, prompting the Republican and his allies to claim, without evidence, that the election was rigged in favor of his Democratic rival and current President, Joe Biden.

Giuliani is accused of making false statements and soliciting false testimony, conspiring to create false documentation and asking state legislators to violate their oath of office.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is handling the case, said if convicted, Giuliani would face jail time.

Giuliani denied any wrongdoing, arguing that he was entitled to raise questions about what he believed to be voter fraud. He further called the accusation “an affront to American democracy”.

Former President Donald Trump is due to surrender on Thursday to Georgia authorities, in what is the fourth criminal charge he faces.
