Yesterday, breaking news reports revealed a hefty FBI raid at the Manhattan home and office of Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, in which federal officials confiscated Giuliani’s electronics as part of their search warrant. Several right-wing talking heads, including Rudy’s son Andrew, were quick to label the federal raid as a witch hunt against the former president’s lawyer, claiming something to the effect of, “If this can happen to Donald Trump’s attorney, it could happen to you too,” in a crappy attempt to scare the American public.
And now, Donald Trump himself has something to say about it all.
Speaking with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo in an interview, the ex-president said, “Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot. He does these things — he just loves this country, and they raid his apartment. It’s, like, so unfair and such a double — it’s like a double standard like I don’t think anybody’s ever seen before.”
The search warrant executed at Rudy’s home and office was in connection to a long-running probe into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine during Trump’s presidency. One of Giuliani’s attorneys has claimed that the raids were focused on one single incident in which Rudy failed to register as a foreign agent.

“I don’t know what they’re looking for, what they’re doing. They say it had to do with filings of various papers, lobbying filings,” Trump said in the interview before going on to make baseless allegations of foreign lobbying against President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
“It’s a very, very unfair situation,” Donald complained. “You have to understand Rudy. Rudy loves this country so much. It is so terrible when you see things that are going on in our country, with the corruption and the problems. And then they go after Rudy Giuliani. It’s very sad, actually.”
Reports claim that FBI agents “also seized the cell phone of Victoria Toensing, another lawyer who has ties to the Ukrainians and remains close to Giuliani and Trump.”
