WASHINGTON, DC: Rudy Giuliani, former advisor to Donald Trump, has agreed to cease his accusations of election fraud against former Georgia election workers Ruby Freeman and Wandrea "Shaye" Moss, a mother-daughter duo.

This agreement follows a draft agreement in his federal bankruptcy case filed on Tuesday, May 21 which requires Giuliani to refrain from mentioning plaintiffs were involved in any wrongdoing directly or indirectly.

Giuliani was permanently prohibited “from publishing, causing others to publish, and/or assisting in others’ publication of… any statements that suggest that Plaintiffs, whether mentioned directly, indirectly, or by implication, engaged in wrongdoing in connection with the 2020 presidential election," according to Washington Post.

Giuliani had accused Freeman and Moss of committing election fraud during the 2020 Georgia elections where Joe Biden emerged victorious, but the accusation has been proven wrong.

He claimed they had manipulated the election results using USB drives, which he said were passed around “like vials of heroin or cocaine.”

He also claimed they had brought in “suitcases” full of fake votes for Biden and “deliberately threw people out and counted the ballots in private."

Freeman and Moss brought a defamation lawsuit against Giuliani, the former attorney for Trump and two-time mayor of New York City. They won and were awarded a judgment of $148 million in December 2023.

The following day, Giuliani filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in New York, declaring up to $500 million in debts.

However, it was not before their lives turned upside down with Moss having to ultimately quit her $39,000-a-year position with the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections and Freeman was forced to leave her home due to threats.

Freeman and Moss filed another lawsuit against him in December after he persisted in spreading falsehoods about them.

Their attorney, Michael Gottlieb, requested the trial judge to allow Freeman and Moss to immediately pursue the $148 million judgment, citing the risk that Giuliani would deplete his savings before any money could be recovered.

Following the prohibition order on Tuesday, Giuliani’s spokesman, Ted Goodman, stated that the former New York mayor has agreed not to comment on the election service of Freeman and Moss “based on advice from his lawyers.”

“He will continue to comment on everything else surrounding the 2020 election," Goodman said of Giuliani.

On Tuesday, Gottlieb announced that the plaintiffs were “pleased” with the agreement.

“Today ends his efforts to profit off of lies about these two heroes of American democracy,” he said

“If the court grants the permanent injunction as we have requested, then the second lawsuit would be over, because that is all we asked for in that lawsuit," Gottlieb told The Washington Post, 

Giuliani was dismissed from a New York talk radio station this month for continuing to propagate falsehoods about the 2020 election.

"Each decision I make is guided by what I believe best serves the station, our listeners, and above all, the truth," John Catsimatidis, the owner of the station and a Republican donor, said according to Deadline. 

He also appeared in court on Tuesday in Arizona, where he pleaded not guilty to felony charges that he and other Republicans are facing related to their alleged efforts to undermine Biden’s 2020 victory in the state.

Internet believes Rudy Giuliani will violate the injunction

As Giuliani agrees not to speak against Freeman and Moss of election tempering, netizens predict it is just a matter of time before he does it again and rallies for the plaintiffs to be paid the money he owns them in the defamation lawsuit.

"He'll just violate again. Also, he has no money to pay for his legal defense in his myriad civil and criminal cases," wrote a user on X. 

"It's about time. He should also be made to PUBLICLY apologize to them, and pay them their money too," wrote another. "Fingers crossed he pays them some money next," wrote one more.

One critique quipped, "Wow, that only took 3.5 years." Another echoed, "Yes, but he has ruined their lives already," adding, "now he claims bankruptcy and says he cannot pay them with damages they legally won. What can be done that this? Can his homes be seized and sold? Can he be jailed for not paying. NAL who would like to know the next steps. Anyone??"

"How was that not already the case? Isn't every citizen sort of permanently barred from committing crimes, including repeat crimes???" asked one more. 

"Means nothing. He’ll do it again. When are they going to force him to pay them?" yet one more asked.
