Rudy Giuliani’s Upper East Side apartment raided by FBI

DM

The FBI raided Rudy Giuliani’s Upper East Side apartment Wednesday morning in connection with the ongoing investigation into his dealings in Ukraine. The raid, first reported by The New York Times, is an overt sign that Manhattan federal prosecutors’ investigation into Giuliani is entering a new phase. It’s also a sign prosecutors think they have a strong case. Giuliani, a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, is entitled to certain attorney-client privilege protections that can only be overcome with significant evidence of a crime. Reps for the Southern District of New York and FBI declined comment. A call to Giuliani’s attorney was not returned. The feds seized Giuliani’s electronic devices, according to The Times. “In SDNY, under any administration, you do not get search warrants easily and you definitely do not get it easily when there’s potential attorney-client privilege involved, especially this high profile,” said Westchester County District Attorney Mimi Rocah, who previously served as a federal prosecutor. “I would not be surprised if charges and an arrest followed.”
