And so now the war on the Trump administration truly begins, as No. 45 himself remains without the social media weapon that he once wielded unstoppably.
Donald Trump’s first term did not end in a graceful or particularly peaceful way, and this seems to have many Americans concerned about what’s next in terms of the MAGA movement.
And so, in what is likely an effort to head that off at the pass, the Biden administration is turning up the heat on the former Commander in Chief’s close acquaintances.
(NEWSER) – Federal investigators from the office Rudy Giuliani used to lead searched the former New York City mayor’s Manhattan apartment and Park Avenue office early Wednesday, sources tell numerous outlets. Insiders tell the New York Times that Giuliani’s electronic devices were seized in connection with an investigation of his dealings in Ukraine. Sources tell the Times and AP that the United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan, which Giuliani led from 1983 to 1989, pushed for a search warrant last year but the Justice Department under former President Trump refused to sign off on it. The AP reports that in doing so now, prosecutors are indicating they have probable cause that Giuliani committed a federal crime; that does not mean he will be charged. The Times calls it “an extraordinary move for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president.”
This is simply insult to injury when it comes to Rudy Giuliani, who is also facing a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems in which he could be on the hook for over $1 billion in damages.
