At this point, there is no longer any doubt about Joe Biden’s intentions regarding the his predecessor’s administration.
For a moment there, it seemed as though the Biden team was going to leave well enough alone. Trump was gone from the White House, which was their stated goal from the get-go, and it appeared as though this might have been enough to slake the thirsts of the vengeful Democrats.
Just days after the new Deputy Attorney General was sworn in, federal agents raided the apartment and office of Rudy Giuliani, close acquaintance to Donald Trump and former personal attorney to the former President.
Trump himself was furious over the news.
“Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot. He does these things — he just loves this country, and they raid his apartment,” Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo in an interview. “It’s, like, so unfair and such a double — it’s like a double standard like I don’t think anybody’s ever seen before.”
“I don’t know what they’re looking for, what they’re doing. They say it had to do with filings of various papers, lobbying filings,” Trump said, going on to allege — without offering evidence — illegal foreign lobbying by President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
“It’s a very, very unfair situation,” Trump said. “You have to understand Rudy. Rudy loves this country so much. It is so terrible when you see things that are going on in our country, with the corruption and the problems. And then they go after Rudy Giuliani. It’s very sad, actually.”
Trump and Giuliani had appeared to have a falling out at the end of Trump’s first term, due to Rudy’s inability to gain traction for a number of claims regarding the 2020 election being “stolen” via various nefarious methods.
