Feds Raid Rudy Giuliani's New York City Home

Federal investigators on Wednesday raided former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani’s home and office as part of an ongoing investigation into his dealings in Ukraine.

They descended on the properties after obtaining a search warrant as part of an ongoing probe into his business deals and purported role in the recall of Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was abruptly removed from her post in early 2019.

Investigators are said to be reviewing whether Mr. Giuliani violated foreign lobbying laws while working as an attorney for former President Donald Trump.

The raid shook Washington and the legal world. Some said it smelled bad, given Mr. Giuliani’s proximity to Mr. Trump and criticism of the current president’s son.

“This looks like prosecutorial harassment of a political opponent,” said Ford O’Connell, a GOP strategist. “It seems to me the Biden administration is punishing Trump supporters.”

And Mr. Giuliani, he said, is “Trump supporter No. 1. That should raise a lot of eyebrows.”
