Last night, while (a likely drugged up) Joe Biden ‘addressed’ congress, the strong arm of the liberal Stasi (aka The Department of Justice) were busy raiding the homes of two lawyers connected to President Trump.
According to media reports federal authorities raided the New York apartment of Rudy Giuliani today. Apparently electronic devices were seized as part of their investigation into him. However, the DOJ motive behind the investigation is something everyone should be familiar with, Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA).
The corrupt and political agents at the DOJ, led by attorney Andrew Weissmann, have used FARA(951) violations to target their political opposition. They attempted, and in some instances successfully used, FARA investigations and prosecutions against Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Walid Phares and others.
Former DOJ official Andrew Weissmann ran the FARA division of the DOJ-NSD specifically to use this approach as a political weapon. However, notice he never went after any Democrats who were well documented to be lobbying while unregistered for foreign governments. The Podesta brothers were two notorious lobbyists who were not registered and the DOJ looked the other way.
FARA violations being used as a backdoor justification for political targeting has long been the approach of a weaponized DOJ. They are using that same tactic again in their effort to target Rudy Giuliani.
New York – Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the Upper East Side apartment of Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who became President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the matter said.
One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices.
Executing a search warrant is an extraordinary move for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president, and it marks a major turning point in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani.
The federal authorities have been largely focused on whether Mr. Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs, who at the same time were helping Mr. Giuliani search for dirt on Mr. Trump’s political rivals, including President Biden, who was then a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan and the F.B.I. had for months sought to secure a search warrant for Mr. Giuliani’s phones. (read more)
It’s likely they struggled to get a search warrant because it is well known that Guiliani was not lobbying for Ukraine, but rather communicating with Ukraine officials about the corruption of the Biden Family and Hillary Clinton through the Ukraine government.
Giuliani was publicly informing everyone of his contacts and findings, and that included the White House. That’s not lobbying; that was his job as Trump’s counsel during the ridiculous impeachment effort.
The Gateway Pundit reported:
We knew it was bad — We had NO IDEA it was this bad! Power-driven Democrats turned America into a banana republic!
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is one of the most honorable politicians in America today.
On Tuesday the Biden administration’s Justice Department obtained a search warrant for Rudy Giuliani and used it to search his New York City apartment and office, seizing records and electronic devices.
This is payback time for Joe Biden.
It is well known that Rudy Giuliani exposed the Biden crime family and their illegal and unethical dealings with numerous foreign governments and regimes including Ukraine.
And it is well known that the Biden Crime Family pushed the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor investigating Joe Biden’s crooked and drug-addled son Hunter Biden.
Earlier today the Biden DOJ bit back.
Department of Justice operatives raided Rudy Giuliani’s home and office in New York City.
Later this afternoon Rudy Giuliani released a statement about the political raid on his home and business.
Rudy said the corrupt Biden DOJ took everything but the computer hard drives from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.
The Biden DOJ took everything but the evidence of criminal actions that were stored on Hunter Biden’s laptop!
This is a travesty. Of course, the fake news mainstream media will NEVER report this. They’re in on it!
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday accused federal agents of ignoring copies of Hunter Biden’s computer hard drives when they raided his apartment — and blamed the investigation of him on “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
In a statement released by his lawyer, Giuliani said the FBI “steadfastly declined” to take the hard drives when he “offered them on several occasions.”
“Keep in mind that the agents could not read the physical hard drives without plugging them in, but they took Mr. Giuliani’s word that the hard drives were copies of Hunter Biden’s hard drive and did not contain anything pertaining to Mr. Giuliani,” the statement said.
“Their reliance on Mr. Giuliani’s credibility tells you everything you need to know about this case.”
The Gateway Pundit added:
The Biden Justice Department also raided former President Trump attorney Victoria Toensing Wednesday morning in conjunction with their raid on Rudy Giuliani, according to reports. Both raids purportedly involve alleged lobbying violations. Like Giuliani, Toensing and her husband, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova, worked on Trump’s 2020 election cases. The couple represented Ukrainian businessman Dmitri Firtash who is accused by the DOJ of bribery and racketeering. Giuliani, diGenova and Toensing also reportedly worked on gathering evidence of Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with Ukraine.
CNN’s Paula Reid reported, “CNN has learned warrants served this AM on Giuliani & another former Trump attorney, Victoria Toensing, both say they were related to a foreign lobbying investigation. Executing early AM search warrants on *lawyers* at their *homes* seems awfully aggressive for a *FARA* case.”
ABC News reporter James Gordon Meek reports the feds sought Toensing’s phone, “Feds also executed a search warrant at the home of Rudy colleague Victoria Toensing, requesting only one item — her cell phone, which she turned over, an informed source told me.”
Fox News’ Jake Gibson, “A well-places source says the FBI came to Victoria Toensing’s home this morning and asked for her phone and she gave it to them. Source also said the FBI did NOT search her home. Her law firm says she’s been informed she’s not a target of the investigation.”
Democrat impeachment lawyer Daniel Goldman weighed in, “This makes sense because, during the Ukraine impeachment investigation, we obtained draft retainer agreements between a Ukrainian official and Toensing and diGenova that Giuliani brokered.”
