Trump lawyer Giuliani’s apartment raided

NEW YORK: Federal investigators raided the New York apartment of president Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani early on Wednesday as part of a probe into his dealings in Ukraine, US media reported.

Investigators with search warrants combed Giuliani’s residence and a separate office, seizing electronic devices, The New York Times said, citing unnamed sources familiar with the investigation.

Giuliani, himself once a top New York prosecutor and then mayor of the city, was a personal lawyer for Trump when the president was impeached for seeking political help from Ukraine.

Giuliani spent months trying to help Trump find dirt on election rival Joe Biden in Ukraine, and on Biden’s son Hunter, during 2018-2020.

The investigation reportedly involves Giuliani’s work on behalf of Ukrainian businessmen and political actors that could violate US lobbying laws.
