NYT: Search warrant executed on Giuliani's NYC apartment
Federal investigators have executed a search warrant on former President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani's Manhattan apartment as part of an investigation into Giuliani's dealings in Ukraine, the New York Times reported.
The state of play: The Times reports that Giuliani's electronic devices have been seized. The execution of a warrant, which must be approved by a judge, also signals that the investigation into Giuliani's role in Ukraine during the Trump administration is intensifying.
- Authorities are questioning whether Giuliani's Ukraine lobbying practices on behalf of former President Trump broke federal law.
- Trump administration officials had blocked warrants against Giuliani, but the Biden administration's Department of Justice swiftly approved the move.
- Giuliani had previously called the investigation is “pure political persecution," per the AP.
