Federal Investigators Execute Search Warrant at Rudy Giuliani’s Apartment
NYT ^ | 04/28/2021 | William K. Rashbaum, Ben Protess and Maggie Haberman

Posted on 04/28/2021 9:19:21 AM PDT by GIdget2004

Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the Upper East Side apartment of Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who became President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the matter said.

One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices.

Executing a search warrant is an extraordinary move for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president, and it marks a major turning point in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani.

The federal authorities have been largely focused on whether Mr. Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs, who at the same time were helping Mr. Giuliani search for dirt on Mr. Trump’s political rivals, including President Biden, who was then a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan and the F.B.I. had for months sought to secure a search warrant for Mr. Giuliani’s phones.

“The federal authorities have been largely focused on whether Mr. Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs”

Has Rudy no son or daughter who could be paid for being on a board of directors?

Oddly, the other guy lobbying for Ukrainian oligarchs - Joe Biden and his kid - won’t be visited by Prissy Wray’s New American STASI.

Wonder why.

Rudy knows the scum he’s up against. They will find nothing that will stick against him. What they will find are some of his confidential sources which they will pursue and harass.

This is a fishing expedition to get inside Rudy’s network.

I support Donald Trump 100% but Jeff Sessions let him down severely. All can be traced to Sessions’s reluctance to prosecute the Swamp. Barr also displayed a lack of fortitude in prosecutions of political actors in the Swamp.

THIS DOES NOT REFLECT BACK ON DONALD TRUMP!

Each Attorney General Trump would nominate would have to get through the Senate, namely McConnell.

What Sessions, Barr, McConnell displayed was an institutionalized lack of honesty and commitment to the Rule of Law. They are part and parcel to the Swamp protecting the Swamp.

Another reason here not to vote GOP in 2022. The GOP had 4 years to provide substantive oversight of the criminals in the DOJ. What did they do? Collude with DOJ in a 4 year long coup against Trump that culminated in the stolen election.

Of course..figures..this is what is going to happen with ANYONE that worked with Trump or even looked at Trump..they will go after them and throw them in prison for the sole crime of having a difference of opinion..meanwhile a Jihadist committed mass murder in Boulder and the same feds were like “Huh, where”
