In a court filing on Tuesday, Rudy Giuliani admitted that he made false statements about two Georgia election workers in a lawsuit related to baseless claims of fraud he made against them in 2020.

Giuliani stated that he does not dispute that the statements were false if they were factual and actionable. He signed a stipulation to avoid unnecessary expenses in litigation.

The workers, Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, claimed that their lives were turned upside down by conspiracy theorists and Giuliani.
