Wow- using federal government resources against political opponents. Well, it happened to Trump with agencies spying on him and his associates in 2016 and 2017, based on fraudulently-obtained FISA warrants approved by judges appointed by Supreme Court Justice Roberts (based on Steele dossier, paid for by Democrats, according to the Washington Post).

So why not Giuliani?

Welcome to the New America.

Send him to jail!

I really hope they don't find proof he married his cousin. Oh wait!;) ww.vanityfair.com/news/2018/06/rudy-giuliani-very-bad-week/amp

With poor blacks they're quick to shoot while with rich whites they're slow to prosecute. Giuliani has been given ample time to get rid of tons of incriminating material, but let's hope, for the sake of justice, they can still find enough evidence to allow him to spend his twilight years in a home with bars.

Welcome to the New America.

People being investigated for crimes? Calm down eh.

Good. The guy deserves about 30yrs in a FCI. Hopefully it takes Nunes and Solomon down with him, maybe even Russian tool and third dumbest person in the Senate Ron Johnson too (first - Tuberville, second - Blackburn).

It's not merely unauthorized lobbying. Giuliani knowingly worked with Russian intelligence assets of Ukranian citizenship to influence the outcome of the election -- and for personal gain.

Sad but funny in a way. Mr. Giuliani exerted so much energy to have Hunter Biden investigated for his employment by Burisma claiming there was a quid pro quo that involved his father who was then Vice President and the withholding of US aid to Ukraine. That got the press and law enforcement looking at the matter and in the course of their investigations it became apparent that there was at least the appearance that Mr. Giuliani was acting as an agent of a foreign government. If he had kept is trap shut in the first place nobody would have gone looking and he would not be in this predicament now. But instead his big ego and even bigger mouth invited the spotlight but like the hair dye dripping down his temples, what the press and law enforcement saw wasn't quite the image Mr. Giuliani sought to portray. He brought this on himself and has only himself to blame. The same is true of the outrageous falsehoods he made regarding the 2020 election. He will be sued into oblivion by two voting machine companies and he has nobody to blame for this but himself. Kind of a pitiful subject at this point, sad little man about to spend a lot of time sitting at the defense table in court, the opposite side of where he once sat, and maybe lose every penny he ever made.

I shudder to think what sick material they will find on this slimy creep's devices. I bet he is having another meltdown, hair dye dripping everywhere!

The FBI is back to attacking the Republican party. Colluding with the Dems again.

What happened with Hunter? He paid them off? They found nothing? He became a Republican?

The FBI is back to attacking the Republican party.

Formal charges haven't been filed yet and unlike Mr. Giuliani's many wild and unsubstantiated charges against Hunter Biden, the FBI is not yet accusing Mr. Giuliani of any crime. The US has a jury system and an independent judiciary. If the prosecutors cannot prove a crime was committed beyond a reasonable doubt and get a unanimous jury verdict Mr. Giuliani will walk free. The jury is there precisely to prevent abuses on the part of law enforcement and are a great protection from retributive "justice".

Why did it take so long?

As a Federal prosecutor, losing a headline case like this will be is not just embarrassing but can be career ending. The prosecutors in this case want to make sure they have solid evidence before filing charges. The previous AG had prevented the prosecutors from executing a search warrant on Mr. Giuliani so the search had to wait for a new President and new AG to take office.

Welcome to the New America.

Where right-wingers gladly invent their own reality. Pretty scary, yeah.

Mr. Giuliani respects the law, and he can demonstrate that his conduct as a lawyer and a citizen was absolutely legal and ethical,” the statement said.

Rudy and his his buddies tried every dirty trick possible to get donald elected, because if he didn’t they would face prison time.

The chicken have come home to roost and these petty criminals are going to face the consequences!!!

I really hope they don't find proof he married his cousin. Oh wait!;)

Marrying the cousin was nothing. Giuliani's father Harold and his uncle Leo were both mobsters. His dad was the collector for uncle Leo, was involved in at least one shoot out with another mobster and did hard time.

The hole that rudy dug to get dirt on President Biden is swallowing rudy and his fellow criminals.

It’ll be fun watching them try getting out of this one!!!

Welcome to the New America.

I knew this was coming and probably Giuliani as well. So he probably made sure he has enough evidence on Hunter in other places as well. This is going to be a nothing burger again. And it seems like Biden is gearing up to once again weaponize the IRS to go around to audit conservatives, NOT individuals who potentially could have broken financial laws, Conservatives only. This is 2013 all over again. I hope the Dems keep this up, just helps The GOP in the end. Lol

Wow...

This man was probably the greatest Mayor that New York City had ever seen. He cleaned up Times Square and saw the city through a horrible act of terror. He could've just rested on his laurels and he deserved every accolade he was given. But now...

Look how far this man has fallen..

Dominion better hope they get their money out of Giuliani before his ex wife Judith cleans him out in their divorce proceeding. There was no pre-nup.

Indeed. The US have far surpassed the Soviet Union in this..

Considering donald didn’t pay rudy, can he still claim to be donald’s lawyer?

donald’s crookedness might actually save him from getting dragged into rudy’s mess!!!

Amazing, the country is literally falling apart under this President and what do they do? They go after the President’s lawyer. So these people take All of Giuliani’s electronic devices, but leaves the computer containing everything he had on Biden. Now it all makes sense, the Feds selectivity are after Biden for God knows what these people want, but Biden’s files that are Russian linked in the details, that’s left behind, so this is just about getting anyone connected to Trump. Actually kind of funny the obsession these people continue to have.

That's simply not true at all.

I beg to differ:

Many in Manhattan already know what the historical record will one day reveal, that "Amerika's Major" was a one-man "Potemkin Village", a cheap papier mâché creature of media fiction (especially their 9/11 cover-up of his ill-preparedness and ineptness that accompanied his disastrous decisions of leadership).

Anyone who touches Trump ends up in jail. The rot starts at the head.

It is?! It seems to be going pretty well actually. The economy is accelerating, people are getting vaccinated and cases are steadily falling since January... Apart from the oath keepers and proud boys, what's "falling apart" exactly?

Conservatives, just use the regular playbook. Do everything you can to erode confidence and sow mistrust in our legal system. If Rudy is convicted, then you can say it's because it's all a scam. If he's innocent, you can forget the thousands of pages you wrote about how we can't trust the government, and say they got it right.

In short, get ready for the typical two trial process. One conducted by law enforcement against Rudy, and another conducted by right-wing media and politicians against our government.

Oh, and don't forget the investigation into the investigation. That's pretty much SOP for conservatives these days. Focus on a single document or action that could be described as overreach, then use that nugget to say all of the evidence is corrupt. See Putin for more information.

Lock him up.

Yes, it is very true.

The 45ist cult are panicking now. Watch how they switch the narrative on this one, folks.

I knew this was coming and probably Giuliani as well.

No. No you didn't.

This investigation started under Trump who must be sweating at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

Anyone who touches Trump ends up in jail.

Well, they tried, but it’s hard to jail someone when they’re not guilty.

The rot starts at the head.

And this is why the GOP prospects of retaking the House looks very good in 2022.

Conservatives, just use the regular playbook. Do everything you can to erode confidence and sow mistrust in our legal system.

Says the people that supported the failure of the corrupt FBI trying their best to kick out a former President that was duly elected on charges that were so outrageously false, it defied all logic.

If Rudy is convicted,

Of what?? Can’t wait to hear what he has to say on Tucker tomorrow.

In short, get ready for the typical two trial process.

For what?? Lol, Stop making me laugh! The Democrats are getting funnier by the minute. Seriously.

So you have flipped back to the "Corrupt FBI".

Trump is still under several investigations.

Flipped? What are you talking about? Never trusted the top echelon of the FBI for many years, but the last 4 even less.

If he follows the standard conservative playbook, I believe the first step is to make yourself the victim.

Let me know if I'm wrong.

I love how people are so up in arms and focused on trivial matters when there are mega problems in the U.S. that still aren't being touched.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

So you're telling us you never trusted an agency that has been historically very conservative and in sync with the GOP for decades? That means you weren't a republican before?

We know, I don’t even think Trump is phased by it, but this will blow over as well.

If he follows the standard conservative playbook, I believe the first step is to make yourself the victim.

Or more like the Democrats plan on trying to make him a suspect.

-11 ( +1 / -12 )

of course. I would send you a link to the content, but the content is illegal. as were most/all of the activities depicted in the photographs.

So... Why hasn't the "content" been given to the police, then? Is it so illegal that even the police can't touch it? Or maybe... Just maybe... Are you just making up right-wing fairy tales? :)

Funny how this works out so well for Hunter and his Dad.

Yeah, things get really really suspicious when you completely invent them, right?

What a year for Rudy! He's been under federal investigation, "melted" in front of a live audience, hosted a press conference across from an adult bookstore, and got caught on video in a bedroom with an alleged 15 year old.

I knew this was coming and probably Giuliani as well. So he probably made sure he has enough evidence on Hunter in other places as well.

As well as his "Trump insurance policy"....

This is going to be a nothing burger again. And it seems like Biden is gearing up to once again weaponize the IRS to go around to audit conservatives, NOT individuals who potentially could have broken financial laws, Conservatives only.

They always leave out that this investigation of Rudy was started a year and a half ago under the direction of Trump's AG Bill Barr. And his two Russian-sponsored Ukrainian business partners are already cooperating.

This is 2013 all over again. I hope the Dems keep this up, just helps The GOP in the end. Lol

Which GOP - Trump's or Liz Cheney's?

Sooner or later Mr. Giuliani will be behind bars, and this time Trump wont be there to PARDON him.

Don't worry Rudy, Sidney Powell called and said The Kraken was positively, absolutely guaranteed to show up this time..

With the Feds in serious pursuit of the fading star of the "Four Seasons'', we may soon get to hear the joyous sound of the rusty hinges of the creaking door to equal justice under the law starting to squeak, as "Re-count Dracula, may at last be getting his long-awaited summons to Cancel-vania.
