Authorities are investigating whether Giuliani lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 illegally on behalf of Ukrainian officials and businessmen. They took all of his electronic devices except for the laptop that once belonged to Hunter Biden. Giuliani said the seized devices contain material covered by the attorney-client privilege and other constitutional privileges. He said, further, that the DOJ secretly went into his iCloud account in 2019 while he was working as Trump's personal lawyer. -GEG
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday accused federal agents of ignoring copies of Hunter Biden's computer hard drives when they raided his apartment — and blamed the investigation into his dealings in Ukraine on "Trump Derangement Syndrome."
In a statement released by his lawyer, Giuliani said the FBI "steadfastly declined" to take the hard drives when he "offered them on several occasions."
"Keep in mind that the agents could not read the physical hard drives without plugging them in, but they took Mr. Giuliani's word that the hard drives were copies of Hunter Biden's hard drive and did not contain anything pertaining to Mr. Giuliani," the statement said.
