Rudy Giuliani believes that he is being framed by feds because ‘they hate Donald Trump’[/caption]
Giuliani’s New York City home was raided last week[/caption]
Obtaining the warrant marks a step up in the criminal investigation into Giuliani’s dealings with Ukraine and into whether he broke any lobbying laws while working for Trump.
“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.”
“The only lawyers they raid are lawyers for Donald Trump,” he said.
“I can’t think of another lawyer that has been raided other than lawyers for Trump.
“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 for failure to file as a foreign agent on behalf of an unnamed Ukrainian official,” he told Fox News.
“I know the criminal law and I do not violate it,” he added.
Giuliani told Fox News that he believes the investigation has been spurred on by federal investigators’ “hatred of President Trump”.
“They are beyond the ability to control their rational thinking or their decency, and they have a serious, serious ethical issue, driven by Trump derangement syndrome,” Giuliani said.
“They are trying to frame me. 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.”
Giuliani’s lawyer called the FBI’s decision to raid his home and office a “disturbing double standard,” alleging that crimes of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are being ignored.
“The Biden department of justice has completely ignored clear evidence (which the FBI has had for over a year) in texts and emails on Hunter Biden’s hard drive of failing to register numerous times as a foreign agent, child pornography, money laundering, and 30 years of Biden Crime family taking millions and millions in bribes to sell his public offices,” lawyer Robert Costello said in a statement, released on behalf of Giuliani.
Costello’s statement alleges that Giuliani has already offered to “demonstrate” that the charges against him are untrue.
“Mayor Giuliani has not only denied this allegation but offered twice in the past two years through his attorney Bob Costello to demonstrate that it is entirely untrue.
Twice the offer was rejected by the SDNY by stating that while they were willing to listen to anything Mr. Costello had to say, they would not tell Mr. Giuliani or Mr. Costello, the subject matter they wanted him to address.”
He later went on to slam an alleged “double standard” under Biden’s Justice Department.
“It is also a clear example of a corrupt double standard.
“One for high-level democrats whose blatant crimes are ignored, such as Hilary Clinton, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and Republicans who are prominent supporters and defenders of President Trump who, are subjected to false charges and procedures used in the past, if at all, in cases involving terrorists and organized criminals.”
