The office of former New York mayor and personal lawyer to the President Rudy Giuliani was raided by federal agents on Wednesday, and multiple electronic devices were seized in the early hours of the morning.
The raid occurred at approximate 6 a.m. at Giuliani”s New York apartment. Giuliani has been under investigation by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office in relation to his overseas business dealings in the country of Ukraine.
As of yet, no evidence has been presented by prosecutors of any wrongdoing by Giuliani.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Giuliani’s attorney Robert Costello described the move as “legal thuggery” and expressed frustration at investigators’ refusal to cooperate with his client, stating, “It’s like I’m talking to a wall.”
Costello also described some of the details of the raid, which has been closely kept secret by the corporate media:
Mr. Costello said authorities arrived at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment at 6 a.m. and seized his electronic devices. Mr. Costello said the search warrant describes the investigation as a probe into a possible violation of foreign lobbying rules. Mr. Costello said the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist who was in communication with Mr. Giuliani about his effort to push for investigations of Joe Biden in Ukraine.
Giuliani came under attack from the Democrat Party and the corporate media for his role in investigating allegations of voter fraud for President Donald Trump following the 2020 presidential election.
