At least 10 people arraigned for fake electors case in Arizona

UPDATE (1:32 PM): According to a post on X, a Maricopa County judge is ordering Rudy Giuliani to appear in Arizona within 30 days and sets a $10,000 "secured appearance bond."

PHOENIX (KYMA, KECY/NBC) - Allies of former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Arizona's "fake electors" case.

11 people, including former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, former Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward and several more people accused of plotting to be "fake electors," pleaded not guilty to charges related to their involvement in a plan to oveturn the state's results in the 2020 presidential election.

Giuliani virutally appeared in court on Tuesday after being served last Friday during his 80th birthday party in Palm Beach, Florida. He was among 18 people charged last month by a state grand jury over the plan.

One of the accused, John Eastman, a former attorney for former President Donald Trump, pleaded not guilty on Friday, and he is scheduled to appear in court on July 2 for a pre-trial hearing.

Trump's allies face charges of fraud, forgery and conspiracy, and several of those charged in the Arizona case have also been arraigned on similar charges in Georgia.
