Rudy Lashes Out After Raid, Claims Feds are Trying to ‘Frame’ Him

The wide-ranging interview saw Giuliani provide some context regarding the probe.

Rudy Giuliani

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.

“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.

Florida Governor Offers Pardons to Anyone Convicted of COVID Infractions

That’s one way to take a stand.

Every day, it becomes more obvious that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has dreams of running for President in 2024, and this week was no exception. The Sunshine State politician has aligned himself heavily with in-state political heavy-hitter Donald Trump on just about any issue out there, even taking some of these ideologies further than the former President himself. It seems as though DeSantis has a rather large grudge with COVID-19 precautions as well, consistently pushing for Florida to move quickly and sternly toward unfettered freedom on the matter.  He was one of the first state lawmakers to rescind coronavirus restrictions, and has made a very public show of it all, which has belied his belief in a higher political calling. On Wednesday, DeSantis took another very public shot at those who continue to see coronavirus as a public health threat in need of government intervention. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will pardon anyone in the Sunshine State charged for not wearing masks or socially distancing — breaking the news live on air to a gym-owning couple who were facing jail time for defying coronavirus safety recommendations. The Republican governor made the unexpected announcement on Fox News Wednesday as he decried county officials penalizing people. “It’s a total overreach,” he told Laura Ingraham. “These things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive.” The governor did not mince his words. He broke the news of his pardon directly to Mike and Jillian Carnevale, who faced up to 120 days in jail for repeatedly allowing people to forgo masks at their gym in Plantation in Broward County. “I’m glad you have Mike and Jillian on, and I’m also glad to be on to be able to say that effective tomorrow morning, I’m going to sign a reprieve under my constitutional authority,”…

McCarthy Defies Trump and MAGA, Says ‘No One’ is Questioning 2020 Election Results

One has to wonder how uncomfortable Trump could make things for McCarthy in the coming months.

Published

There is a major rift within the Republican Party in 2021, and the deepest, darkest parts of this crevasse plays host almost exclusively to conversations on a single subject:  The 2020 election. The MAGA Movement, which represents the far-right end of the GOP, believes wholeheartedly that Donald Trump was cheated out of the election, either by the work of Dominion Voting Systems or via Democratic balloting procedures that were tilted in the direction of the liberal left.  Of course, none of his legal surrogates have been able to get a judge to so much as listen to their case, and those who spoke on the subject of Dominion often found themselves on the receiving end of defamation lawsuits totaling over one billion dollars. On the opposite side of this field of battle in the GOP’s civil war, the “establishment” Republicans have been lining up, urging calm and a return to their less radical roots.  These conservatives are so concerned about the machinations of the MAGA masses that they’ve even threatened to break off into their own party – effectively sabotaging the entire right side of the aisle in the process. While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has long been a supporter of Donald Trump, his latest statement will almost assuredly see him savaged by the far-right. Hours after Rep. Liz Cheney was ousted from her Republican leadership position for rebuking former President Donald Trump’s ongoing claim that the election was “stolen” from him, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters, “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” “I think that is all over with,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said at the White House, where he was meeting with President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about Biden’s…
