    “Giuliani’s attorneys said that the raids on former President Trump’s ex-personal lawyer were unnecessary because he said after prosecutors obtained a warrant for his Apple iCloud account in 2019 that he would cooperate and answer questions without limitations, except for privileged matters, as long as his attorneys were aware of the subjects that would be discussed, according to The Associated Press.” https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-europe-government-and-politics-676767bd9ad05e0df0029e3e5f399882

  4. Addendum says:

    “Never-before-heard audio, obtained exclusively by CNN, shows how former President Donald Trump’s longtime adviser Rudy Giuliani relentlessly pressured and coaxed the Ukrainian government in 2019 to investigate baseless conspiracies about then-candidate Joe Biden.
    The audio is of a July 2019 phone call between Giuliani, US diplomat Kurt Volker, and Andriy Yermak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The call was a precursor to Trump’s infamous call with Zelensky, and both conversations later became a central part of Trump’s first impeachment, where he was accused of soliciting Ukrainian help for his campaign.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/07/politics/rudy-giuliani-ukraine-call-investigate-biden/index.html

    President Trump’s former attorneys Sidney Powell and Rudolph W. Giuliani also urged a federal judge in Washington to throw out the defamation lawsuits filed against them by Dominion Voting Systems over their false claims that the company’s technology was used to rig the 2020 presidential election. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/dominion-lawsuit-trump-arguments/2021/06/24/0c0e6cb2-d36a-11eb-a53a-3b5450fdca7a_story.html

  9. Footnote says:

    According The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, last November President Trump shrugged off warnings that Giuliani and the GOP lawyer Sidney Powell’s claims about mass voter fraud in the 2020 election were becoming untethered from reality. Those concerns intensified after Giuliani and Powell held a rambling, sweaty news conference alleging that a global communist conspiracy was responsible for thwarting Trump in the election.
    “They were just beyond bizarre,” South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told Trump afterward, according to the book. “And I think it took a lot of the air out of the balloon that the challenges are so unfocused, haphazard and conspirational.” He added that the news conference, during which black liquid was seen trickling down Giuliani’s face, “accelerated the beginning of the end.”
    But Trump brushed Graham off, Woodward and Costa reported. He also told advisors of Giuliani: “He’s crazy. He says crazy shit. I get it. But none of the sane lawyers can represent me because they’ve been pressured. The actual lawyers have been told they cannot represent my campaign.”

  10. Stark reminder says:

    “Fox News has banned Rudy Giuliani and his son from appearing on its network, Politico Playbook reported on Friday.
    Giuliani, who served as a personal attorney to former President Trump, has reportedly been banned for close to three months and only learned of the move by the news network right before Sept. 11, the news outlet reported.
    Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.
    A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.” https://thehill.com/media/573771-fox-news-bans-rudy-giuliani-from-appearing-report
