The interview was scheduled for Friday afternoon, but the committee would not meet Giuliani’s last minute demand.
According to The Hill, Giuliani wanted the virtual interview recorded as well as transcribed.
“Mr. Giuliani had agreed to participate in a transcribed interview with the Select Committee,” said committee spokesperson Tim Mulvey. “Today, he informed committee investigators that he wouldn’t show up unless he was permitted to record the interview, which was never an agreed-upon condition.
Giuliani was subpoenaed because he served as former President Trump’s personal attorney. He is considered a key witness, and the committee said they would pursue “enforcement options” if Giuliani refuses to comply.
The subpoena alleges Giuliani “actively promoted claims of election fraud on behalf of former President Trump and sought to convince state legislators to take steps to overturn the election results”.
Giuliani’s personal attorney Robert Costello said the two sides are still in talks.
