Rudy Giuliani selling $6.5m NYC apartment as legal woes pile up

5/5 - (10 votes)

Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and once the lawyer for former President Donald Trump, has put his Upper East Side apartment on the market for $6.5 million. This move comes as Giuliani faces various legal challenges. Property records and court documents confirm that his address matches the one listed by Sotheby’s Realty. While the listing highlights the building’s impressive gothic-inspired terra cotta and brick façade, the apartment itself is notable for being raided by the FBI in April 2021 regarding Giuliani’s alleged dealings with Ukraine.

It is noteworthy that Giuliani decided to sell his apartment shortly after his former client and ally, Donald Trump, was indicted for the third time. Giuliani himself is also facing numerous legal problems. His attorney, Robert Costello, admitted to the New York Times last week that his client appears to be “Co-Conspirator 1” in the federal indictment that accuses Trump of conspiring to overturn the 2020 election in his favor. Costello denounced the indictment as “election interference” and criticized it for violating the First Amendment.

In his own defense, Giuliani suggested that Special Counsel Jack Smith, who issued the indictment, should be indicted himself. On Newsmax, Giuliani stated, “The people lying are the people bringing this…They should be indicted for conspiracy against rights.” Apart from his legal challenges, Giuliani is also facing a lawsuit filed by his former assistant, Noelle Dunphy, in May. The lawsuit accuses him of sexual assault, harassment, wage theft, and other claims. Dunphy claims that Giuliani made it clear that satisfying his sexual demands was a requirement of her employment.

Recently, bombshell tapes and transcripts of their conversations have emerged, in which Giuliani allegedly made vulgar comments. In one such tape, he allegedly said, “Come here, big t*ts. Your t*ts belong to me. Give them to me. I want to claim my t*ts.” Furthermore, Giuliani is facing a defamation lawsuit in Georgia, where he seemed to admit making defamatory statements about two election workers after the 2020 election. A judge has asked him to clarify the meaning of his statements, as they appeared incongruous and puzzling.

In addition to these legal troubles, Giuliani is being sued for defamation by Dominion in January 2021. Dominion alleges that he made false claims about the 2020 election to promote a false narrative, and they are seeking $1.3 billion in damages. The Independent has reached out to Giuliani’s lawyer for comment on these matters.
