Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had a dire warning for supporters and detractors alike on his way to be arrested in Georgia should “the political winds shift, as they always do…”
As the Aug. 25 deadline imposed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis drew near, the former mayor was one of several co-defendants indicted for an alleged “criminal racketeering enterprise to overturn Georgia’s  presidential election result” expected to have surrendered before Friday.
Faced with the same number of charges as former President Donald Trump, with a number overlapping the president’s as well as the other 17 co-defendants indicted by the state, Giuliani was stopped by the press on his way to the airport to offer some words.
After recounting his record as mayor and as a state’s attorney who “took down the mafia and made New York City the safest city in America,” he expressed, “I’m fighting for justice. I have been from the first moment I represented Donald Trump, and as a man who has now been proven innocent several times — I don’t know how many times he has to be proven innocent and they have to be proven to be liars, actually, enemies of our republic who are destroying rights, sacred rights.”
“They’re destroying my right to counsel — my right to be a lawyer. They’re destroying [Trump’s] right to counsel. It’s not accidental that they’ve indicted all his lawyers. I’ve never heard of that before in America — all the lawyers indicted,” the mayor continued before voicing concern to the public.
“Now, whether you dislike or like Donald Trump, let me give you a warning, ” said Giuliani. “They’re gonna come for you. When the political winds shift, as they always do, let us pray that Republicans are more honest, more trustworthy, and more American than these people in charge of this government. Because if our government is conducted this way and the system of justice is politicized and criminalized for politics, your rights are in jeopardy and your children’s.”
“Donald Trump told you this,” he reminded. “They weren’t just coming for him or me.”
As previously reported, fellow former Trump attorney John Eastman and Atlanta-based bail bondsman Scott Hall had both been booked at the Fulton County Jail on Tuesday with bonds set at $100,000 and $10,000 respectively. Meanwhile, as the president had announced he would be surrendering on Thursday with an expected bond of $200,000, his former chief of staff Mark Meadows was said to have asked a judge to block his arrest.

An earlier attempt by Meadows’ legal team to have an extension granted on his arrest as he sought to have his trial relocated from state to federal court had been denied as Willis had informed, “I am not granting any extensions. I gave two weeks for people to surrender themselves to the court. Your client is no different than any other criminal defendant in this jurisdiction. The two weeks was a tremendous courtesy.”
