The New York Times reports that federal investigators have raided the office and home of close Trump ally and disgraced former mayor Rudy Giuliani. The search warrants were executed as part of the ongoing investigation into Giuliani’s shady activity in Ukraine, where he is said to have sniffed around for dirt on the Biden family while Trump was still in office. The raids represent an embarrassing turn of events of Giuliani who made his political bones prosecuting the New York mafia as a U.S. Attorney.
It’s as yet unclear what if any charges will ultimately be brought against Giuliani, but it would hardly be surprising to learn that a man who swore fealty to a lifelong crook like Donald Trump was himself engaged in criminal activity. Regardless of the results of the investigation, Giuliani has already forever stained his entry in the history books. In just a few short years, he has burned through all of the goodwill he garnered as Mayor of New York City during 9/11 by enabling the worst president in American history and spewing all manner of deranged conspiracy theories.
It’s impossible to know but fun to speculate how this might turn out. If the investigators do indeed have evidence that could send Giuliani to prison it’s possible that he could decide to flip on Trump and cut a deal. Who knows what he might reveal about the disgraced former president? Trump no longer has the power to pardon, so Giuliani won’t be able to wriggle out the way some of other Trump’s cronies have. Any way you look at it, this is terrible news for Donald.
While Republicans are already crying foul, upset at the mere thought of one of their own being held accountable for his actions, most of Twitter is rejoicing at the news. For many, today feels like Christmas.
For any federal agents currently trying to access any of cyber expert Rudy Giuliani’s seized laptops, try “password” or “12345”.

Does Rudy Giuliani ever think about how easy and pleasant his life could have been? He could have spent the last 20 years giving lucrative speeches about Leadership, consisting of a few nouns, a few verbs, and 9/11.

If you’re surprised that Rudy Giuliani‘s home was raided today, then you’ve been listening to the wrong pundits. Once Trump lost the election, he and his henchmen were always going down. This was inevitable. They were never just going to “get away with it all.”

🚨The Feds conducted pre-dawn raids of Rudy Giuliani‘s home & business, along with the home of Victoria Toensing, who represented Dmitry Firtash, a pro-#Russia Ukrainian mobligarch under indictment in the US.

Bill Barr had barred investigators from searching Rudy Giuliani’s apartment
Now, barring a miscarriage of justice, Rudy will be behind bars soon

You know who’s more upset today than Rudy Giuliani?

Hope the FBI agents didn’t slip on all of the flop sweat pouring off Rudy’s bulbous dome.

Wait, Feds took “electronic devices” from Rudy Guiliani’s apartment? Saul Goodman had burner phones, Rudy. https://t.co/purKAoLz3r

Rudy Giuliani just had a federal search warrant executed at his apartment.
It seems like the feds are getting ready for charges, things are not looking good for him.
