Biden hit with defamation lawsuit for calling Giuliani a “Russian pawn” in 2020

The former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani filed a 16-page complaint alleging that President Joe Biden defamed him, and it only adds to the mountain of legal troubles the ex-mayor faces.

The lawsuit’s remark is from 2020

Giuliani’s 16-page complaint comes from Biden’s 2020 election debate when he called him a “Russian pawn.” The New Hampshire state court filing names the President alongside several fundraising committees as defendants.

Giuliani held a brief press conference in New Hampshire and told the reporters that Biden’s remarks cost him “millions and millions of dollars” from lost clients and consulting business. Giuliani’s complaint sues Biden and his political entities for two counts of defamation, one count of libel, and one count of false light invasion of privacy.

“Joe Biden has spent his life telling lies” and “getting away with it,” said Giuliani, and the President a “pathological liar” and baselessly proclaimed that “people have died” because of his statements. Giuliani added, “He called me a Russian operative … That is a lie, that is false. He owes me a lot of money in a lot of states.”

Why New Hampshire?

Giuliani’s lawyer, William O’Brien, said the filing was made in New Hampshire because the state’s statute of limitations “allows the recovery of damages … wherever and in whatever jurisdiction the statements were distributed or published.”

Biden discussed election interference and mentioned Giuliani. “Well, I won’t get — I shouldn’t — well, I will,” Biden said, and added, “His buddy, Rudy Giuliani.” The President shared, “He’s being used as a Russian pawn. He is being fed information that is Russian — that is not true.”

Trump commented on “laptop from hell” while referring to Hunter Biden’s laptop. “Look, there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what this, he’s accusing me of is a Russian plan,” Biden said during the debate.

Biden did not stop there

Biden continued, “They have said that this has all the characteristics — four, five former heads of the CIA, both parties, say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage. Nobody believes it except him and his good friend Rudy Giuliani.”

The filing comes days after Hunter Biden sued Guiliani

Hunter Biden filed a civil lawsuit in late September against Rudy Giuliani and his ex-attorney, arguing they caused “total annihilation” of his digital privacy and violated federal and state computer privacy laws via their alleged attempts to hack his devices.

Hunter Biden accused Giuliani and Robert Costello of spending years “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from” his devices.

“Plaintiff has demanded Defendants Giuliani and Costello cease their unlawful activities with respect to Plaintiff’s data and return any data in their possession belonging to Plaintiff, but they have refused to do so,” lawyers for Hunter Biden wrote in the lawsuit.

“Defendants’ statements suggest that their unlawful hacking activities are ongoing today and that, unless stopped, will continue into the future, thereby necessitating this action,” the lawsuit said. 

The charges against Giuliani

Former Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was one of 18 people indicted alongside the former president in Georgia for allegedly participating in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Giuliani is accused of violating multiple state laws as part of a “criminal enterprise” that pressured state officials to reverse former President Donald Trump’s loss.
