Rudy Giuliani, former lawyer for Donald Trump, announced on Monday that he posted a $10,000 bond in Arizona. He faces charges for attempting to overturn the

2020 election results in the state.

Giuliani, who previously served as the mayor of New York, shared on his "America's Mayor Live" social media show that he had completed the bonding process, including fingerprinting and a mugshot, at the Maricopa County sheriff's office.

Attempts to reach the Maricopa County sheriff's office and the Maricopa County Superior Court clerk's office for confirmation went unanswered.

Reflecting on his situation, Giuliani said, "It's hard for me to believe ... that I actually had to report as a defendant in a criminal case."

Last month, Giuliani was ordered to post the bond after allegedly avoiding service of court papers related to the case. He has pleaded not guilty to allegations that he conspired to falsely claim Arizona's electoral votes for Trump in the 2020 election, following Trump's narrow loss to President Joe Biden. Giuliani's trial is set for October.

He is among 18 defendants in the case brought by Arizona's Democratic attorney general, Kris Mayes. The charges include conspiracy, fraud, and forgery in connection with efforts to assemble a slate of electors pledged to support Trump, aimed at undermining the certification of the 2020 election.
