Giuliani interviewed for hours by 1/6 committee

WASHINGTON (AP) – Rudy Giuliani, who as a lawyer for then United States (US) President Donald Trump pushed bogus legal challenges to the 2020 election, met for hours with the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the US Capitol, a person familiar with the interview said.

The interview with Giuliani took place virtually and lasted for much of the day on Friday, according to the person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meeting.

Giuliani had been scheduled to meet with the committee earlier this month, but a spokesperson for the panel said that meeting was rescheduled.

The former New York mayor is seen as a critical aide for the committee, which has interviewed nearly 1,000 witnesses, including family members of Trump and advisers in his inner circle.
