Rudy Giuliani may be in more than a bit of trouble as of late, and there are concerns in Trumpland that Mr. Mayor’s woes might spill over into the inner circle of the former President.
It was merely days ago that Giuliani’s Manhattan office and apartment were raided by federal agents, who left with a number of electronic devices and other bits of evidence in an investigation they say is tied to Rudy’s work in Ukraine. Of course, whatever else that is discovered during the dissection of these devices will surely be fair game for a DOJ who has no love-lost for the former administration.
This week, Giuliani defended himself, stating that the government was looking to “frame” him.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Giuliani described the raid on his apartment as “out of control.”
“At about 6 a.m., there was a banging on my door– a very loud banging, and outside there was a group of an endless number of FBI agents,” Giuliani told Fox News.Trending:
“Usually a person who has been a former assistant U.S. attorney, a U.S. attorney, a mayor, the associate attorney general, usually they receive a subpoena — not have their home raided,” Giuliani said.
“The only lawyers they raid are lawyers for Donald Trump. I can’t think of another lawyer that has been raided other than lawyers for Trump,” he continued. “Trump is in a special category because he doesn’t have constitutional rights.”
And while the official scope of the investigation appears to be in regard to Rudy’s “foreign agent” status, Giuliani has his doubts.
“They are trying to frame me,” Giuliani told Fox News. “They are trying to find something they can make into a crime, some technical violation, some mistake I made.”
He added: “They’ll take anything.”
Guillain would also say that the investigation was based not on facts, but on a “hatred” for Donald Trump held by folks within the Department of Justice.
