Rudy Giuliani's Claims Of Financial Hardship Raise Questions Amid Private Jet Travel
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani declares financial hardship despite facing mounting legal fees but fails to disclose financial details, Business Insider reported.
Giuliani faces potential sanctions for not sharing his financial documents. This follows a federal judges ruling that Giuliani must pay $132,000 in legal fees to two Georgia poll workers he defamed.
Judge Beryl Howell asserted that Giuliani had only provided a fraction of the necessary financial documents for the lawsuit. Further non-compliance could result in additional fines.
Despite claiming financial difficulties, Giuliani has not followed standard procedures to delay fees or substantiate his inability to reimburse plaintiffs. He recently listed his Manhattan apartment for sale, potentially using the proceeds for legal bills.
However, there are indications that Giuliani maintains a comfortable lifestyle, including owning multiple properties and hosting a daily radio show. His financial situation remains under scrutiny in an ongoing lawsuit brought by election technology company Smartmatic.
