Federal Agents Search Rudy Giuliani’s NYC Apartment

Federal Agents Search Rudy Giuliani’s NYC Apartment

Giuliani’s lawyer “said the search warrant describes the investigation as an investigation into a possible violation of foreign lobbying rules.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7UZCjnSmOc

Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer Robert Costello confirmed federal investigators raided the former mayor’s New York City apartment:

Mr. Giuliani, who became President Trump’s personal lawyer, has been under investigation since at least 2019 by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office for his business dealings in Ukraine, for possible violation of federal lobbying laws.

The search warrant execution was first reported by the New York Times and was confirmed by Mr. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.

Mr. Costello said authorities, who arrived at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment at 6 a.m., seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices. He said the search warrant describes the investigation as an investigation into a possible violation of foreign lobbying rules. Mr. Costello said the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist who was in communication with Mr. Giuliani about his effort to push for investigations of Joe Biden in Ukraine.

Costello described the raid as “legal thuggery“:

He said that in recent years he had offered to answer investigators’ questions as long as they agreed to say what area they were looking at ahead of time. He said they declined the offer. “It’s like I’m talking to a wall,” he said.

Wiped? You mean like with a cloth?

And Biden, who on video, admits to threatening Ukraine, is ilegal President

His son, the crack addict, sex addict, China whore, is a “guest lecturer” at a university…

I think Rudy was smart enough to rid of anything even remotely questionable a long time ago

Personally, I love Rudy

” the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist”

This is the true purpose. Chill speech detrimental to the pretender.

Completely fascist
Maybe they can get someone like Robert Müller to investigate

HUNTER GETS A PASS / THOSE INVESTIGATING HUNTER / UKRAINE GET FBI RAID AT 6:00 AM

Example Two-Tiered Justice System.

GUILIANI can easily get off the FBI’s enemies list
Just tell the FBI that he identifies as a trans-person-of-color and virtue-signal with a donation to BLM. And, finally, apologize to HUNTER for any distress he may have cause the poor misguided boy.

Until we have a Republican Party that understands how to unleash this same level of thuggery upon Democrats and is willing to do it, this will never end.

    If you mean 4 AM raids by a SWAT team to serve a warrant for jaywalking, we could use a few of those.

    The old “We have to become Nazis to beat the Nazis” argument. It has never been correct.

      ScottTheEngineer in reply to fredx3. | April 28, 2021 at 2:03 pm

      The nazis were allowed to win in Germany. You know where that lead. Appeasement never works with people that want you dead.

        Refusing to become a nazi is not “appeasement”. And it’s the right thing, even if it leads to defeat. Winning is not the goal — if we have to become the enemy in order to defeat him then what’s the point?

          JusticeDelivered in reply to Milhouse. | April 28, 2021 at 10:24 pm

          You do not become the enemy to win, you do adopt their tactics, and beat the crap out of them, and then return to your old good natured self.

          Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Milhouse. | April 30, 2021 at 11:24 am

          In WWII, for example, we destroyed entire cities. In Germany we tried precision daylight bombing. Our closest ally, the UK, distinctly target who cities and civilian populations. In Japan, the cities and their populations were the stated targets by USAAC. We used nuclear weapons – the only people to do so in warfare.

          During the Civil War, the US used involuntary servitude (called conscription) to destroy involuntary servitude called slavery.

          Sometimes in life you have no good choices, but you must choose. And the things that follow, and that you do, are horrific, and yet you must do them because the other choices are even worse in outcome. And then, if you survive, you live with the consequences of your choices and actions, which sometimes can be difficult, indeed.

          This is not becoming a Nazi. It’s called being a man.

          Many fights are simply unwinnable unless you are willing to wallow in blood. It is quite unfortunate, but nonetheless true.

          I am not saying we are in any way at that point currently in the United Sates. I do not believe that and would in no way advocate violence, and would indeed condemn it as a solution for our current problems. Violence is always a last resort when all lessor means have failed or could not reasonably be construed to be effective to save the lives of others, but trying to maintain a virginal purity in the face of a rapine mob may require actions you may otherwise not desire to engage in to protect that core essence.

          Telling a lie to the Gestapo about hiding Jews in your basement does not make you an immoral liar even when you are committed to truth and honesty.

          I for one will not march, or stand witness, as others are being marched into slavery or mass murder simply because I might be required to do something distasteful to stop it.

        There may, in fact, be a way to fight back without becoming just like them. But the Republicans don’t fight, so how can we know for sure what it takes?

      Yet look what it took to finally defeat them.

        Milhouse in reply to tkdkerry. | April 28, 2021 at 6:28 pm

        What it didn’t take was becoming them.

          henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | April 28, 2021 at 9:59 pm

          Yup. Dresden, Manzanar, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and giving the greatest mass murderer in the history of the human race free rein in Russia and portions of Europe

          But we “didn’t become Nazis,” or so we (perhaps self-interestedly) claim.

          If that is true (and I still believe it is), it was not due to our methods, but our motives — we fought for fairness, against injustice and oppression, and (like Washington) refused the crown at the end of it all.

          We can unleash all sorts of nuclear options on the swamp while still not surrendering this philosophy. The government capable of the Cherokee relocation, Ruby Ridge, Waco, Manzanar, the Yalta yard sale, the MOVE bombing, and even the Swine Flu mayhem obviously has no problem projecting power — now it’s way past time we’re owed summa dat.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to Milhouse. | April 28, 2021 at 10:31 pm

          They had Hiroshima and Nagasaki coming, if they had not surrendered there would have been a 3rd about 4 days later, Additional nukes would have been ready every 2 weeks or so.

          Whether it was necessary is a separate question from whether we did it.

      henrybowman in reply to fredx3. | April 28, 2021 at 9:46 pm

      Feel-good Hollywood bullshit. Along with that perennial lie*, “violence never settles anything.” Too many times, only violence settles anything — in the entire history of the human race, no one has ever succeeded in “voting themselves freer,” including the founding of our own country. Gandhi himself took up arms, and even the Dalai Lama professes the morality of doing so.

      Trump promised us Hillary in orange couture. Perfectly moral, perfectly legal, and overwhelmingly appropriate. Yet never even attempted.

      The way to “solve” the “two systems of justice” tyranny is to come down hard on the people who have been benefiting from it. If you want to do that with a SWAT team at 4 AM just to make the point that “this stops now,” I’ll bring the coffee and donuts.

      There needs to be a Krystallnacht event inside the Hoover Building, and some perp-walk raids inside DOJ, to boot.

      Cleaning up requires cleaning up… not appointing a commission to hire a board to plan for a process whereby a cleanup plan can be circulated for comment.

      When Republicans are elected, they are in office. When Democrats are elected, they are in power. What you see today proves the truth of this observation. Republicans need either to learn how to use actual power, or to want to, whichever is the issue.

      *The doctrine that “violence never settles anything” is historically untrue – and thoroughly immoral. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedom.

    Agree completely. Even when GOP is in charge, they always whiff. Cf. Republican state AGs who do nothing. Huber? Durham? Bueller? Bueller?

Former SCOTUS nominee in action as AG. For now, the Social Club of the United States has one less “yes” man on the Dem team.

When the process is the punishment, any pretext will serve.

Everyday is a worse day

Due to the audit taking place in Arizona, they know the stolen election is going to be uncovered. Things are unraveling for the Democrats. So they figure they have to discredit Giuliani, and find out exactly what he knows about the stolen election. Giuliani has no doubt backed up everything he has, has it offsite, and its all recoverable. Their only card is to try to allege something false against him. They may even charge him, but the case will be dropped. But the public stain will remain. They are getting desperate.

Let’s see if this gets mentioned in President Biden’s big speech tonight. Rudy has plenty of dirt on him too.

Grrr8 American | April 28, 2021 at 2:18 pm

We have a puppet-regime – the Biden-Harris Junta – installed by the CCP (and enemies domestic) via color revolution techniques. (Don’t take my word for it. Watch, e.g., Absolute Interference https://AbsoluteInterference.fyi ).

So it is predictable that the Communist puppets are going to increasingly act like their totalitarian masters to cement their control over this country. First Kash Patel, and now Rudy Giuliani.

If the actual election results are not revealed and honored, removing the illegitimate Junta from power, there will not be a country left to save by the 2022 midterms. The speed at which the Junta is moving demonstrates that they realize this too.

One thing about these raids, they take *everything* right down to and including the router. If you have backups offsite, they’ve checked your credit card receipts and pounced on them too, and good luck getting access to them to restore your files onto new computers. That iPhone? Gone, and they’re going to twist your arm to unlock it. Android? Gone too, and they can open it up like a can of beans. Laptops? Gone. Servers? Gone too. Made hardware backups of your data and storing them at your lawyer’s office? He’ll have a subpoena served to him at 3AM also. Every file, every account, every password has now been compromised, down to and including your bank and gas payments. And if you ever get any hardware back from the FBI, might as well wipe it clean and give it to the Salvation Army, because it’s going to be full of spyware, the same way as if you had made a trip to Communist China and they got to handle the hardware for a few minutes.

THIS is likely one of the prime reasons Rudy dumped Hunter’s laptop contents on the FBI and most likely did not keep any digital copies. If there was CP on it, as rumored, the immediate charges would fall on him, not Hunter.

When democrats get power they go for juglar. When republicans get power they tickle you with a feather. When people refer to the Uni-party it means half of the republicans are actually democrats.

    Having actually been confronted by the KGB, I don’t see much difference these days with the FBI.

This is simply a warning to all counterrevolutionaries to surrender. This is a post-Constitutional mop-up operation and only the beginning.

This could also be a distraction. What else happened today that we are not supposed to see?

This is why the RINOs fucking lose.

When they have control they can’t even bring themselves to prosecute UNAMBIGUOUS CRIMES like lying to the FISA court.

And when the Democrats have control they do whatever the fuck they want with no consequences.

    henrybowman in reply to Olinser. | April 28, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Fuzzy Slippers aside, I continue to point to the first two years of the Trump administration, when Republicans unexpectedly found themselves in complete control of all three major chambers, and practically bloodied their underwear thrashing around for excuses as to why it never was the “right time” to deliver on their campaign promises (my prime example is universal interstate carry). This is what Republicans do, and this is all you should rightly expect from them next time they end up in control of anything, which they never will unless all voting machines spontaneously combust. (Note to STUXNET author: do you take commissions?)

      Should we discuss the portion of blame Trump gets for not doing the write up draft legislation and try to build up support while agreeing to modifications within own party and lobby for it with the public knowing what is going on so any hesitant senator is under intense pressure (which is how he passed his tax bill) thing or discuss the blame he gets for appointing enemies into his administration who sabotaged from within or move on to the next battle, and work on flipping things from D to R so we could actually fight back against things the Democrats?

      There is plenty of blame to go around for the 2017-2018 mistakes (and they are legion, but you aren’t here to discuss that are you? You seem to just want to demoralize, and seem to be flipping between the messages “don’t vote it is pointless elections are rigged” and “don’t vote it is pointless Republicans aren’t going to do anything if you vote for them”.

        henrybowman in reply to Danny. | April 29, 2021 at 12:33 am

        Trump should get the blame for not doing congressional RINOs’ jobs for them? What a laughable idea. The president has enough on his plate running one branch without running two. What do we pay these clowns for?

        The Democrats own all three major chambers right now, same as the Republicans did in 2016 (if even by less). Compare and contrast what is happening.

        I don’t see Biden putting in a whole bunch of effort to “try to build up support while agreeing to modifications within own party and lobby for whatever with the public knowing what is going on so any hesitant senator is under intense pressure blah blah blabbity blah.”

        None of that pansy consensus-building bullshit.

        He signs EOs like a boss, and his legislative henchmen ride their insane, radical bills roughshod through Congress like a locomotive through a flock of chickens, without giving a good goddamn what the public wants.

        This is how Democrats destroy America. This is the only way Republicans could restore it, presuming they have the faintest idea what that means.

          mark311 in reply to henrybowman. | April 29, 2021 at 2:20 am

          You realise that the policies Biden is pushing through are pretty popular so yes they do take into account what the public wants.

          It’s pretty clear there is lots of stuff going on in the background regarding what’s included within the bills too given there size.

          Also why should he work with the republicans they negotiated with bad faith during the Obama years so why make the same mistake again when they are largely the same people?

          At the end of day Trump didn’t play his hand well, he wasn’t supposed to do senate’s job he was supposed to work with them. Instead he tended to just throw shit around.

          @healthguysfu

          There have been a number of polls over the last three months that indicate broader popularity of a number of specific policies .

          As for taxes , it’s mostly aimed at the rich which is fair enough since they have had it easy for a long time as well as for the corporates.

          How well the legal framework has been written and how well the specific policy initiatives have been addressed idk, I’ve not seen a decent policy review on it yet.

          Brave Sir Robbin in reply to henrybowman. | April 30, 2021 at 11:53 am

          “Also why should he work with the republicans they negotiated with bad faith during the Obama years so why make the same mistake again when they are largely the same people?”

          Bide claimed he would govern in a bipartisan manner. An abject lie. He said he was going to be the president for all Americans. Another abject lie.

          I take it that when Republicans come to power, you will have no issue with rule by that majority without regard to the needs, wants, or desire of the minority party.

          An I do not, in fact, realize that what he is pushing though is “pretty popular.” Indeed, it is quite controversial and divisive.

          Let me close by stating the Unites States is explicitly not a democracy. The majority does not rule. The founders held a fear of tyranny by the majority. Therefore, there were placed upon the government certain restrictions intended to shield the minority against the will of the majority. We have largely erased these boundaries today so that now people fear and distrust the government because now it may impose, at anytime, an arbitrary and capricious will upon a great swath of a citizenry.

          The people, at the formation of the country, consented to the formation of a constitutional republic in which the powers of the government were strictly prescribed so that the natural rights of the people could not be infringed upon by the arbitrary whim and passion of his fellow citizens.

          The majority is not allowed to abridge this foundational consent and wash away these protections. Just because a majority of people want something is of no consequence. For example, if a majority of people want to round up and kill Jews, it should not be allowed. Tyranny is tyranny not matter the source.

          I have noticed that in most of your commentary, you fall back on a supposed majority consensus as the determinant of what must be done. I do wonder where you limits are. Me personally, If I have to stand alone against the world, I shall do so,

        mark311 in reply to Danny. | April 30, 2021 at 3:36 pm

        @BSR

        1) Biden claiming to work in a bipartisan manner.

        Well I think the differtial I was trying to highlight is that Biden will try to work with Republicans but won’t wait for the. Sure there might be a negotiation but he isn’t going to sit around and wait. That is in part because the GOP acted like total dickhead during the Obama years.

        2) Majority rule

        You are correct , the US is functionally a democracy where the majority rule is the most important factor. I’m not clear that all the protections have been eroded given the system is geared to grind to a halt that’s a productive of the adversarial nature of the system, I appreciate your point though there is certainly an element of truth to what you say.

        3) popularity concensus.

        Well I’ve used that train of thought for climate change that’s true. In this particular case I was responding to the idea that no Americans liked the idea of what Biden is proposing. I haven’t used the laws popularity as an argument for the laws / policies themselves so there is a distinction there. Otherwise my arguments rarely invoke concensus type arguments that said I’ve made many many argument by now on this site so maybe I’m guilty of it on the odd occasion. I don’t recall.

        It’s an odd argument to make in a sense since my position on this site is almost universally on my own, I’m attacked by just about all and sundry on here some with good arguments some well not so good.

Are they still trying to cover up Hunter Biden’s crimes.

Where, or should I ask, how far along is this investigation group in actually investigating the data (pictures, emails, texts, connection and contacts) on that Hunter Biden laptop and how far along are they in prosecuting this person?

      Well it was Trump representing the banana republic so that don’t fly does it. Guilliani was trying to keep his lot on power. Your narrative doesn’t really fit the facts. And what he did was at the minimum pretty unsavoury , digging up sort with foreign powers , and was stupid in the process.

        Danny in reply to mark311. | April 29, 2021 at 6:02 pm

        A bunch of fascist FBI agents tried to frame Trump as a Manchurian candidate without any pretenses.

        I know pretending he was a Manchurian candidate because obviously Russia wants massive American fracking, lethal aid to Ukraine and massive sanctions on Iran is a religious thing for the left.

        So how about this.

        We replace your corrupt fascists with our corrupt fascists when we get in charge and start doing the same with exactly the same basis.

          I simply have not the time to point out how stupid, vapid, and uninformed or partisanly dishonest that statement was.

          mark311 in reply to Danny. | April 30, 2021 at 3:43 pm

          @ BSR

          No offence but the evidence was not in Trumps favour. If it weren’t for the partisan nature of the impeachment processes Trump would be out. The man was a total fraud attempting to hang on to power by peddling a lie over and over again. Let alone the other issues with his taxes, the Ukrainian issue etc.

          Trump supporters hold a massive double standard. While screaming to lock Hilary Clinton up for poor practise with emails , Trump has done exactly the same thing but no he is fine it’s just Trump you say, it’s a nothing burger, the right consistently hold an entirely different standard to the man because he apparently he has a conservative agenda and therefore his crimes are all forgiven. THAT is valid, and dishonest.

          Stop making excuses for the man because he honestly doesn’t give a shit about you or anyone else and that’s been shown with how he couldn’t give a rat’s ass about his supporters facing the music for breaking into the Capitol building.

    Danny in reply to mark311. | April 29, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    You mean acting entirely lawfully? Launching an investigation by himself to see what was being done to his client? How dare he the scoundrel because our fascist media says Trump is an agent of Russia MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      mark311 in reply to Danny. | April 29, 2021 at 7:15 pm

      Well there is a significant question mark over the financial aspect in terms of lawfulness so we shall see. His association with *ahem some colourful characters shall we say hasn’t been helpful to his reputation or indeed legitimacy.

        Brave Sir Robbin in reply to mark311. | April 30, 2021 at 12:23 pm

        Sometimes when you investigate things you have to consort with unsavory characters. You may even pay them for information. This is done every day by law enforcement and intelligence agencies, for example.

        They are investigating a man for investigating official government corruption, and in the process taking possession and examining privileged information and communications between him and his clients, to include Mr. Trump, who, in all likelihood is the true target of this activity. Even if nothing found can be construed to be illegal, it is another shot across the bow to current a future Trump supporters, that is, you will be investigated and prosecuted by the government for supporting Trump.

        The fact that Joe and Hunter Biden are not being prosecuted, nor their attorneys and enablers, in the Ukrainian, Russian, and Chinese influence peddling and bribery schemes say about all that needs to be said regarding this matter.

          But is illegal if it’s a foreign power, Guilliani hasn’t the authority to make those decisions as a private individual.

          Guilliani wasn’t investigating corruption, given the entire pretence is on the basis that a corrupt ukraining prosecutor was pushed out by Biden.

          Those are allegations which have no evidence base. If there were truth in it there would be an investigation, and who knows maybe there is in the background.

          The fact is there is a while lot more substantive evidence of Guillianis wrong doing than anyone else on the other side of the fence.
