Firebrand Rudy Giuliani, a Trump advisor and lawyer, was the subject of a protracted, two-year investigation by Federal authorities that produced no criminal charges, demonstrating once more how the nation’s top law enforcement and national security organizations are used as weapons against the left’s political rivals.
Giuliani’s initial response after learning there would be no criminal charges brought against him was, “Where do I go to get my reputation back?”
Amazing corruption exists.
“The Justice Department has made its decision over whether former Trump lawyer and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani will be indicted. More than a year after the FBI raided his apartment and seized a collection of electronic devices, federal prosecutors noted in a court filing in Manhattan that he won’t be facing criminal charges,” according to the New York Post.
“The outlet noted further that an independent special master had been appointed earlier to look over the materials that were seized. Prosecutors and Giuliani’s defense attorney had submitted letters throughout the process updating a federal judge in Manhattan on where the investigation stood,” Jon Doughtery wrote for Conservative Brief, adding:
“On Monday, federal prosecutors filed documents informing U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken, an Obama appointee, that no charges were forthcoming.”
“The Government writes to notify the Court that the grand jury investigation that led to the issuance of the above-referenced warrants has concluded and that based on information currently available to the Government, criminal charges are not forthcoming,” the prosecutors noted.”
Interestingly, The Post claims that there is a connection to Ukraine:
After his Manhattan apartment was raided, a source told The Post that federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York were looking into Giuliani’s relationship with Yuriy Lutsenko, a former top Ukrainian prosecutor. The source claimed that the federal government was looking into whether Giuliani inadvertently violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act by acting as a representative for Lutsenko, a key figure in former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment. Several Ukrainian officials, including Lutsenko, are said to have given Giuliani potentially damaging material about Trump’s political foes.
“Trump’s first impeachment was linked to a conversation he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he was accused of withholding military aid until the Ukrainian leader agreed to launch an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden. The Senate acquitted Trump,” according to Doughtery, who added:
“In late August, Giuliani addressed the raid on his apartment as well as the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier in the month.”

“The affidavit they had for my search warrant — although discovered nothing illegal; thank God, everything got sent back to me — but at least it was narrow to electronics,” he told Newsmax TV’s Rita Cosby. “This, I mean, they took [Trump’s] passport. Everything here should be suppressed. In other words, I actually believe this could never be used in a criminal case.
“This is a general search warrant. Search warrants are supposed to be for a specific thing,” he said.
“This is about as illegal search as you’re going to get,” he continued, adding that the Justice Department took its time to seek the raid though officials claimed that the situation at the former president’s estate was urgent. CONTINUE READING…
