The Biden administration is using the FBI like Richard Nixon used the FBI, to target political foes. This further erodes the Bureau’s once sterling reputation for integrity and shows Biden will do anything to go after any prominent figure who supported the former president.

FNC: “Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani denied allegations that he violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, telling Fox News on Monday that federal investigators are ‘trying to frame’ him. Federal investigators seized electronic devices from Giuliani’s New York City apartment last week after executing a search warrant as part of a federal probe into whether he violated the law by lobbying the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian officials in 2019. Giuliani has served as former President Trump’s personal attorney on a number of high-profile matters.”
“At about 6 a.m., there was a banging on my door– a very loud banging, and outside there was a group of an endless number of FBI agents,” Giuliani told Fox News.
“Usually a person who has been a former assistant U.S. attorney, a U.S. attorney, a mayor, the associate attorney general, usually they receive a subpoena — not have their home raided. The only lawyers they raid are lawyers for Donald Trump. I can’t think of another lawyer that has been raided other than lawyers for Trump. Trump is in a special category because he doesn’t have constitutional rights.”
He continued, “They showed me a warrant that sought the electronics in my apartment and purported to be about an alleged violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, FARA, for failure to file as a foreign agent on behalf of an unnamed Ukrainian official. I am a lawyer for 51 years, I formerly ran that office. I know the criminal law and I do not violate it.”
“My contracts have clauses that I will not act as a foreign agent, and I wanted to show these things to the government so that they would stop their consistent illegal leaking of an investigation,” Giuliani said.
“There is no way on earth that they could have anyone telling the truth that I was acting as a foreign agent,” he said, “nor do they have any evidence that I tried to influence the government on behalf of clients. They are beyond the ability to control their rational thinking or their decency, and they have a serious, serious ethical issue, driven by Trump derangement syndrome. They are trying to frame me. They are trying to find something they can make into a crime, some technical violation, some mistake I made.” He’s right and there will be more to come as Biden’s Department of Justice will try to leverage this probe into getting Giuliani to implicate Trump in criminal activities. But Rudy Giuliani is a stand up guy. They won’t get very far.
