Ex-Trump lawyer Giuliani interviewed in US special counsel’s election probe -CNN


(Reuters) -Rudy Giuliani, an ex-lawyer of former U.S. President Donald Trump, has been interviewed as part of a probe by Special Counsel Jack Smith into interference in the 2020 presidential election, CNN reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed sources.

Smith is investigating accusations that Trump sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election that he lost, including an alleged plot to submit phony slates of electors to block Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.

The investigation – in which former Vice President Mike Pence and others who served in top roles in Trump’s administration have been subpoenaed – is ongoing.

CNN reported that the meeting involving Giuliani, his attorney Robert Costello and investigators happened in recent weeks.

Costello declined to comment to Reuters. Smith’s office did not respond to an emailed request for comment on Tuesday evening.
