Rudy Giuliani’s 80th Birthday Bash Ends in Chaos as Arizona Indictment Delivered

Edited by: TJVNews.com

Rudy Giuliani’s 80th birthday celebration in Palm Springs took an unexpected turn when he was served with a legal notice amidst the festivities. According to a report that appeared on Saturday in the New York Post, the former New York City mayor and one-time attorney for ex-President Donald Trump was celebrating with friends when two officials from the office of Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes arrived to deliver the indictment.

The birthday party, hosted by prominent GOP consultant Caroline Wren, was an extravagant affair attended by around 200 guests. The invitations, adorned in gold and black, featured a photo of Giuliani in a tuxedo and another of him sporting aviator shades and a USA hat, as was reported by the Post. The guest list included notable figures such as former Trump advisors Steve Bannon and Roger Stone, both of whom have had their own legal troubles in recent years.

As the night wound down, with most guests already having left, the officials arrived around 11 p.m. to serve Giuliani with the legal notice. According to sources, a few remaining attendees reacted strongly to the scene, with one woman even bursting into tears as Giuliani was handed the papers, as was indicated in the Post report. Despite the dramatic interruption, a source close to Giuliani claimed he remained unfazed by the incident. “It actually wasn’t that big of a deal,” the source insisted.

The legal notice served to Giuliani is related to his alleged involvement in a scheme to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in favor of Donald Trump. The information contained in the Post report said that the indictment, issued by Democratic Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, marks another chapter in the ongoing legal battles faced by several key figures from Trump’s inner circle following the controversial election.

Caroline Wren, the host of the party, expressed outrage at the timing and manner of the legal service. “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 was Normandy,” Wren fumed, as was pointed out in the Post report. Her comments reflect the frustration among Giuliani’s supporters over politically motivated legal actions.

Giuliani’s legal troubles are part of a broader investigation into efforts to challenge the legitimacy of the 2020 election results. His actions, along with those of other Trump allies, have been under intense scrutiny as various states and federal entities pursue inquiries into possible election interference and related offenses.

The party, held 11 days before his actual birthday on May 28, was marked by both jovial moments and serious undertones as Giuliani faced yet another legal challenge,  the Post report said.

Despite the looming legal troubles, Giuliani appeared to be in high spirits throughout the evening. He mingled with guests, even posing for a photo with a group of blonde women, which he posted on X (formerly Twitter) while mocking Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, as per the report in the Post. “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,” Giuliani wrote in the post, which was later deleted.

Giuliani was the last of the 18 pro-Trump defendants to be served in the indictment returned by a grand jury last month. Noted in the Post report was that they are accused of participating in a failed attempt to award Arizona’s 11 presidential electoral votes to Trump.

Kris Mayes confirmed the service of the indictment in a post on X, stating, “The final defendant was served moments ago. @RudyGiuliani nobody is above the law,” as was affirmed in The Post report. This legal action is part of a multi-state effort, with similar charges being pursued in Michigan, Nevada, and Georgia.

Despite the unexpected legal interruption, attendees of Giuliani’s party reportedly had a good time. The event featured a Frank Sinatra tribute band, with Giuliani himself taking the stage at one point to lead the band in a rendition of “New York, New York,” according to the information provided in The Post report.  A source close to Giuliani confirmed that the festivities continued smoothly, saying partygoers “had a really good time.”

In addition to the musical entertainment, Giuliani took the opportunity to discuss the current political climate and his aspirations for the upcoming presidential race. In a video obtained by the Post, Giuliani passionately addressed the crowd, urging them to ensure a change in leadership. “This time we can make no mistakes if we want our country back. Do you want your country back?!” he bellowed, eliciting cheers from the audience.

Giuliani’s spokesman, Ted Goodman, emphasized that the former mayor was not fazed by the attempt “to try and embarrass him” on his birthday. “He enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people who love him – from all walks of life – and we look forward to vindication soon,” Goodman said, as was reported by The Post.

Giuliani’s birthday celebrations are not over. He is expected to celebrate again on May 31 at the Midtown eatery Amata. The celebrations have been organized with a gift registry on Amazon, which includes a variety of items such as an electric razor, Giorgio Armani cologne, “stain-blocking ceiling paint,” and a 55-inch TV, as was detailed in The Post report.  The registry specifies which gifts should be sent to his Manhattan or Palm Beach addresses and includes a note that gifts are not necessary but are appreciated if guests wish to contribute.
