The Biden administration’s Justice Department obtained a search warrant for Rudy Giuliani and used it to search his New York City apartment and office, seizing records and electronic devices. Giuliani has been a private attorney for President Trump in his election cases and was instrumental in getting Hunter Biden’s laptop into the news before the 2020 presidential election. Giuliani is reportedly being investigated over his alleged lobbying efforts in 2019 regarding Ukraine when he was investigating allegations of corruption involving Joe and Hunter Biden and Ukraine.
Business Insider is reporting:
Federal investigators raided former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment on Wednesday and seized his electronic devices, The New York Times reported.
The feds executed the raid after obtaining a search warrant, and it was part of an ongoing criminal investigation into Giuliani’s foreign dealings in Ukraine, sources told The Times. The outlet reported that investigators had been trying to secure a search warrant against Giuliani for months but that the Trump Justice Department quashed their efforts.
The investigation into Giuliani, who serves as Trump’s personal lawyer, resumed in earnest last month, and the Justice Department lifted its objection to the warrant after Merrick Garland was confirmed as attorney general.
Prosecutors have been scrutinizing Giuliani’s activities in Ukraine since at least 2019 and are said to be examining if he broke foreign lobbying laws while working as former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. The FBI’s investigation also includes a counterintelligence aspect.
Two sources familiar with the investigation told The Times that investigators are looking into Giuliani’s role in the recall of former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie L. Yovanovitch, who was a foreign service officer for 33 years before being abruptly removed from her post in spring 2019.
This is the Obama/Biden/Garland DOJ – just plain corrupt.
For some time people have believed that the SDNY wanted to get Rudy’s electronic devices so they could steal his communications with President Trump that are protected under client-attorney privilege. But the SDNY has all but ignored Hunter Biden’s crimes related to China – nothing will happen to Hunter and everyone knows it.
Some people see through this and see the corrupt clowns in our government are looking for a story to replace the Arizona audit story from making the headlines.
