Dem goons crash Rudy’s b’day bash to serve warrant in latest lawfare salvo

Timed to “embarrass,” festivities honoring a milestone for America’s Mayor included party-crashers courtesy of Arizona’s Democratic attorney general.

Friday in Palm Beach, Florida, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) was joined by “hundreds of people who love him” as part of an early celebration of his 8oth birthday. The shindig, that was incorporated into Hizzoner’s podcast nearly two weeks before its actual date, included a sour surprise when two officials from the Grand Canyon State arrived with notice of indictment.

Bragging about being the latest battleground state to bring legal action against parties who’d challenged the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes reacted to a post from Giuliani late Friday, “The final defendant was served moments ago. @RudyGiuliani nobody is above the law,” before sharing a screengrab of a since deleted post from the mayor, “If Arizona authorities can’t find me by tomorrow morning: 1. They must dismiss the indictment; 2. They must concede they can’t count votes.”

Friday’s notice made the mayor the last of the 18 co-indicted individuals to be formally notified of the Arizona case that included Mark Meadows, Jenna Ellis and 11 supporters of former President Donald Trump who had signed a certificate claiming to be the state’s correct electors for the Electoral College.

While the New York Post reported “Most of the 200 guests” had departed by the time the state officials had arrived, it was said that “some of the stragglers began screaming — including one woman who cried as Giuliani was handed the papers…”

Despite that, Giuliani himself had challenged suggestions from corporate media outlets that his bash was anything but a success.

The mayor wrote on X,

“FAKE NEWS ALERT: Contrary to reports from journalists who weren’t there, our early 80th birthday celebration wasn’t ‘ruined’ or interrupted. It was an incredible night [with] friends, including Steve Bannon & Roger Stone. It felt like a strategy session on how to save America!”

“We had such a great discussion about what we all need to do in order to save our country,” he added rattling off the names of the attendees. “Thank you to @CarolineWren, Loretta, and Drea for hosting an incredible event. God bless America!”

Likewise, a source had told the Post, “It actually wasn’t that big of a deal.”

Giuliani’s own spokesman had issued a statement that expressed, “The mayor was unfazed by the decision to try and embarrass him during his 80th birthday party. He enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people who love him — from all walks of life — and we look forward to vindication soon.”

Meanwhile, Wren, an advisor to Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake, turned the attack back on Mayes and was reported by the newspaper as saying, “While crime in Arizona is at an all-time high, the Arizona [AG’s] office felt it was a good use of resources to send multiple agents across the country to storm an 80th birthday party like it as Normandy.”

For his part, the mayor who’d concluded his podcast with a clip of himself singing “Theme from New York, New York,” was heard saying in video obtained by the Post, “This time we can make no mistakes if we want our country back. Do you want your country back?!”

“Then we got to work like hell from now until Election Day and, who knows? Maybe after, which I learned. But they are not taking this country away from us,” added Giuliani as NBC News reported 11 defendants were scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday following John Eastman’s plea of not guilty Friday in Arizona.
