FBI/RUDY GIULIANI: “Former President Donald Trump on Thursday [Apr. 29, 2021] denounced the raids by federal investigators on the Manhattan home and office of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, defending the former New York mayor as the victim of a politically biased Justice Department.

‘Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot. He does these things — he just loves this country, and they raid his apartment,’ Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo in an interview. ‘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.’

FBI agents executed search warrants at the properties on Wednesday in relation to a long-running probe into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine during Trump’s presidency…

‘It’s a very, very unfair situation,’ Trump said. ‘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.'”
