Rudy Giuliani: I am treated like a “head of the drug cartel”.
REUTERSLawyers for Rudy Giuliani beat up the prosecutor on Monday for secretly gaining electronic access to the accounts of the former New York mayor and even more regrettably for the privilege of the lawyer, client and executive as well as for the public’s perception of these privileges are real, the SDNY simply chose to treat a respected attorney as if he were the head of a drug cartel or a terrorist in order to maximize adverse coverage of both Giuliani and his best known client – the former President of the United States Achieve, “said the letter submitted on Monday on behalf of the Giuliani states. The letter is the first legal response from Giuliani’s team since the April 28 robbery of Donald Trump’s former attorney’s home and office in Manhattan. Prosecutors have asked the U.S. Southern District of New York to appoint a special master to review the evidence confiscated during the raid to ensure that material that falls under legal and client law is not made public. Giuliani’s lawyers, however, alleged on Monday that the government was pressuring a special master to “do over” after prosecutors failed to find one in a similar search during the Trump administration. When prosecutors seized the contents of Giuliani’s iCloud account with an undisclosed search warrant for 2019, his attorneys claim it did, put together their own “Secret Taint Team” to determine whether the information in the former’s iCloud account New York City Mayors benefited from attorney privilege rather than asking a judge to appoint a special independent mayor to make these determinations. Trump has blown Rudy Giuliani’s plea for help as Feds Circle, they further claim that “the fruits of that 2019 search have certainly been partially used to see the 2021 largely double warrant cure. “As a result, Giuliani’s lawyers have asked a federal judge to suspend the appointment of a special master in the 2021 arrest warrant to give them more time to review the circumstances and evidence for the search in 2019. Giuliani’s team also complained about the government’s secrecy issuance of the iCloud arrest warrant in the fall of 2019, in which prosecutors claimed the existence of the warrant had to be kept secret, given the risk that Giuliani could “destroy evidence or intimidate witnesses”. His lawyers called the claim “false” and “extremely damaging to Giuliani’s reputation” and asked the government to reveal the evidence in support of the claim. Giuliani’s lawyers allege prosecutors deliberately waited for the Biden government to take office and that “senior members of” the Justice Department had been removed and replaced by Biden agents to carry out the raid on their client’s home. As evidence, they allege that prosecutors had requested and denied a search warrant for Giuliani’s equipment twice previously, once in November 2020 and again in January 2021. As previously reported by The Daily Beast, Giuliani’s attempts to get out of legal trouble have led the former mayor to unsuccessfully seek help from his former allies – including Trump. However, the former president was unwilling to help his embattled friend as the government presses ahead with its investigation into whether Giuliani’s work with Ukrainian officials was illegal during the last administration. A separate letter was filed on Monday on behalf of Victoria Toensing, a former head, DOJ official and Giuliani staff, who was also the subject of a search warrant on April 28. The letter submitted by her legal team urges the government to return the materials seized during the raid on her DC home and asks them to allow them to effectively protect the privileges of their clients and otherwise meet their ethical obligations to help them Inform that the government has potentially privileged and confidential materials. “To do this, Ms. Toensing should be given the same opportunity to review and claim that she and her clients would have had if this information had been followed by a subpoena, as would normally have been in similar circumstances” The letter said that prosecutors should disclose what information is being examined so that Toensing can protect their clients. Trump supporting lawyers diGenova and Toensing have teamed up with Giuliani to dig up the Ukrainian filth on Biden: Report The letter also mentions a December 2019 Google search on Warrant, which was looking for information about Toensing’s client. Toensing’s attorney said that while the scope of this search warrant was limited, prior to Giuliani’s iCloud search warrant “did not include such a restriction, although it also contained privileged and confidential information on the same pending DOJ matter” was due to Google or iCloud production commitments also no third party is able to do so, ”it says in the letter. Both arrest warrants could reveal information about an unrelated criminal case. Toensing’s lawyers also suggested the government’s request for a special master for the raid, adding that the information received in April is “virtually identical to that previously confiscated”. The lawyer now wants the data previously received to be returned and information about what the prosecutors know. Read more at The Daily Beast. Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
