Ask Rudy Giuliani, or his son, Andrew, if the former mayor of New York City is in legal trouble at the moment, and you’ll undoubtedly get an eye-bulging, hands-flailing response that Donald Trump’s personal attorney has done nothing wrong in his life and that the only person who should be worried about his legal exposure is Hunter Biden. Obviously, that is not true at all given that (1) Giuliani’s multiyear quest to dig up dirt on the president‘s son uncovered nothing, and (2) experts say Rudy is very much in trouble. Calling Wednesday‘s raid on Giuliani‘s apartment and office an “extremely significant” escalation of the federal investigation into his Ukraine dealings, former U.S. attorney Preet Bharara said this week that there is a strong chance the former New York City mayor will be charged. At that point, prison could be in his future. All of which makes Michael Cohen, who was once in a very similar situation, think Giuliani is “absolutely” going to turn on Trump to save himself. Why? For starters, he ran the Southern District of New York, which is currently investigating him, from 1983 to 1989 and knows what kind of power it holds.

The U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) is mulling whether to charge now-convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in connection with a 2017 incident in which he allegedly violently handled a 14-year-old boy and used his knee to hold the teenager down for almost 17 minutes, according to a report. The Justice Department is now reportedly exploring whether to file charges against the ex-cop for the actions portrayed in the video. State prosecutor Matthew Frank, who argued in court papers for the video to be used in Chauvin’s trial, said the body camera footage in question shows “Chauvin’s use of unreasonable force towards this child and complete disdain for his well-being.” Chauvin allegedly struck the teen with a flashlight twice and held the boy’s throat, according to the report.
A U.S. Capitol Police officer told his units to only focus on “anti-Trump” protesters during the Jan. 6 riot, CNN reported Thursday, citing an internal investigation. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), head of the House Administration Committee, drew attention to the probe during Wednesday’s panel hearing on security failures the day of the deadly insurrection. Lofgren said one radio transmission revealed that officers were instructed to disregard Trump supporters. “Attention all units on the field, we’re not looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd. We’re only looking for any anti pro-Trump who want to start a fight,” the officer said, according to Lofgren. Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton said Wednesday that he had yet to read internal reports from the investigation, according to CNN.The internal investigation involves 36 Capitol Police officers involved in the riot, where Trump supporters stormed the Capitol trying to stop the count of President Biden’s Electoral College victory.
