EXCLUSIVE: 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.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Giuliani described the raid on his apartment as “out of control.”
“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,” Giuliani said.
“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,” he continued. “Trump is in a special category because he doesn’t have constitutional rights.”
