While representing Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential race, Rudy Giuliani made baseless accusations that Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, a mother and daughter team, had engaged in voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia.

Giuliani was sued. He lost to the tune of $148,000,000.

Now, a suspected lung condition that may impact Rudy Giuliani’s future health and ability to earn a living has been raised by his counsel.

Giuliani’s attorneys, Gary C. Fischoff and Joan A. Keely submitted a 17-page court petition opposing the appointment of a trustee to oversee the former New York mayor’s obligations following his bankruptcy last year.

In December 2023, creditors requested that a New York bankruptcy judge appoint a trustee to manage his assets.

According to the bankruptcy petition, the debtor (Giuliani) is an 80-year-old ex-attorney who is no longer allowed to practice law. His services are his sole source of income. He may have a 9/11 lung illness, and his age and health will restrict his future earning potential.

According to the document, Giuliani’s lawyers have threatened to seek an evidentiary hearing in the event that the court does not accept their motion.

The creditors’ demands, according to Giuliani’s advisor Ted Goodman, were part of a “smear campaign” against his client.

There is a more significant attempt to use lawfare and a public slander campaign, including these absurd court papers, to try to quiet the mayor.

Donald Trump’s lawyers have also accused Trump’s accusers of utilizing lawfare to cripple their client financially and emotionally.

A second legal battle is brewing for Giuliani, who is accused of helping to utilize a group of “fake electors” to try to reverse President Joe Biden’s 2020 Arizona election victory.

During a May remote hearing, he entered a not-guilty plea to all charges. His trial is set to commence on October 17.
