The New York Times is reporting that the FBI just raided Rudy Giuliani’s apartment. The reason? The law enforcement agency was looking for electronic equipment.
“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,” the Times reported.
“One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices,” the Times added. The raid is related to Giuliani’s investigation to “unearth damaging information about Mr. Biden and his son Hunter,” the report noted. The Associated Press confirmed the report.
“The full scope of the investigation is unclear, but it at least partly involves the Ukraine dealings,” law enforcement officials told the AP.
This would be an unprecedented escalation of the Department of Justice’s persecution of political enemies of the Biden administration.
“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 Times noted, adding, “Spokesmen for the F.B.I. and the U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment.
Rudy Giuliani was at the forefront of the effort to secure Hunter Biden’s laptop. The FBI’s execution of a search warrant against Giuliani reeks of a cover-up, as well as political revenge.
This is breaking news. It will be updated as more information is forthcoming.
