Rudy Giuliani hasn’t been served with Arizona indictment because officials can’t find him

Arizona officials have yet to serve former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani with a notice about his indictment for alleged interference in the 2020 election because they are unable to find him.

Giuliani was indicted alongside 17 other officials — 11 of whom were named in the charging document — for their alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election in the Grand Canyon State. The indicted officials included Giuliani, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, and Trump campaign operative Mike Roman.

The office of Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes told CNN it has served the other indicted officials but has been unable to deliver Giuliani his summons.

A spokesperson for Mayes’s office said they have made multiple attempts to deliver the notice to Giuliani that he has been indicted but that they have been unsuccessful. One of the attempts included an apartment building in New York City in which the front desk worker said he or she was not allowed to accept service of the summons but did not dispute that Giuliani lived there.

The notice that the Arizona Attorney General’s Office is attempting to deliver would inform Giuliani that he is to appear before a judge on May 21.

The April indictment of Giuliani alleges he and the other co-conspirators “schemed to prevent the lawful transfer of the presidency to keep Unindicted Coconspirator 1 in office against the will of Arizona’s voters,” with “Unindicted Coconspirator 1” likely referring to former President Donald Trump.

The indictment in Arizona was the latest in a series of charges levied against Trump’s allies who allegedly attempted to overturn the 2020 election results after he lost to President Joe Biden in key swing states.


Trump lost the 2020 election in Arizona to Biden by less than 11,000 votes. The former president is leading Biden in most recent polls conducted in Arizona for the presidential election rematch in November.

The Washington Examiner reached out to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office for comment.
