While many on the left were wondering what took so long, Rudy Giuliani is raging.
You see, Rudy was on the uncomfortable end of a federal search warrant last week, that saw government goons walk off with a number of his electronic devices, (and God knows what else).
The reason for the visit was said to be some perceived infraction of the rules regarding registering for a foreign agent – something that Rudy denies. Furthermore, those who’ve been paying close attention to the trouble that has befallen Trump associates in recent years will recognize this “foreign agent” schtick from the Michael Flynn case, which belies the impetus of the inconvenience almost too lucidly.
Rudy wasn’t buying it, and he was vicious in his denial of any wrongdoing.
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.”
There was plenty more…
He continued, “They showed me a warrant that sought the electronics in my apartment and purported to be about an alleged violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, FARA, for failure to file as a foreign agent on behalf of an unnamed Ukrainian official.” Giuliani told Fox News he “never did this” and was “shocked” because he had been offering to discuss the allegations with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
Rudy’s raid made for some nervous murmurings within Donald Trump’s inner circle, as there is no telling how deeply the federal government will be delving into Giuliani’s emails, text messages, and contacts.
