Firebrand Trump advisor and attorney Rudy Giuliani has been the subject of a two-year investigation by Federal authorities that has yielded no criminal charges, demonstrating once again that America’s top law enforcement and national security agencies are being used as a weapon against political opponents on the left.
Giuliani’s initial reaction upon learning that he would face no criminal charges was to inquire, “Where do I go to get my reputation back?’
The corruption is astounding.
“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, the New York Post reported.
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 reported 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, according to The Post, there is a Ukraine connection:
A source informed The Post that federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York had been probing Giuliani’s ties with a former Ukrainian top prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, shortly before his Manhattan residence was seized. The source stated the federal government was investigating whether Giuliani represented Lutsenko, a key actor in former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment, in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Lutsenko was among the Ukrainian authorities who allegedly provided Giuliani with potentially harmful material about Trump’s political opponents.
“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,” Doughtery reported, adding:
“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…
