We’re still waiting to see when the arrest of Rudy Giuliani ends up happening. But the raid of his home last week makes clear that it is in fact just a matter of time. Just to obtain a raid warrant, the Feds would need to have already had overwhelming evidence against him.
Sure enough, Rudy knows he’s in deep trouble. Now he’s going totally bonkers about the raid, insisting that “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.”
Wait, really? Rudy Giuliani thinks that because he used to hold high office, it means he should get more leeway when it comes to his crimes? Wrong answer. When he took dirty Kremlin money to do Putin’s and Trump’s bidding in Ukraine, he was violating the trust that the American people once put in him. Someone in his position should face more legal scrutiny, not less.
