Rudy Giuliani told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that the FBI raided his New York apartment because they seek to destroy his credibility.
The FBI executed a search warrant at Giuliani’s apartment on April 28, seizing cellphones and computers, The New York Times reported.
The execution of search warrants is an extraordinary action for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president. The move marked a major development in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani, which examines some of the same people and conduct that were at the center of Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.
One of the warrants for Mr. Giuliani’s devices indicated that the federal investigators were searching for communications between him and several Ukrainian officials, including the former president, Petro Poroshenko, and two former prosecutors who had helped Mr. Giuliani collect information about the Bidens in Ukraine, one of the people said.
This week, Giuliani suggested the FBI is out to get him.
“This is totally done because they want to destroy my credibility,” he told Hannity.
