Well, it looks like the midnight raids, and threats of prosecution and prison time for former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani were all a political stunt, because now that the “ballot harvesting” midterms are over, suddenly, the Southern District of New York has decided to drop all charges against Rudy. My, what interesting timing, wouldn’t you say? They were trying to peg some “Ukraine nonsense” on Rudy, and of course, just like the “Trump raid,” the FBI showed up there like they were busting a mafia ring wide open or something.
It’s all political theatre at this point.
But now, the charges have been dropped, and Rudy feels 100 percent vindicated, which is great, but the even bigger point here is that this should have never happened in the first place.
Bizpacreview reported that it was very odd how an election seems to function as a cleanser of sorts when it comes to the actions taken by government agencies in the alleged interest of justice.
With most of the counting done after last week’s midterm elections, federal prosecutors in New York have informed the presiding judge that they do not plan to bring criminal charges against Rudy Giuliani following a dramatic early morning raid on his Upper East Side apartment.
The April 2021 raid on the former mayor of New York City who was also President Donald Trump’s personal attorney was reportedly part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine.
“Based on information currently available to the Government, criminal charges are not forthcoming,” prosecutors said in a letter to the judge, according to CBS News, further noting that the grand jury probe that led to the raid had concluded.
In effect, a review of the electronic devices confiscated produced no evidence to support the charge, prompting Giuliani to tweet: COMPLETE & TOTAL VINDICATION
“In my business, we would call that total victory,” Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told The Associated Press. “We appreciate what the US attorney’s has done. We only wish they had done it a lot sooner.”
The New York Times reported at the time the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and the FBI had been trying to secure a search warrant for Giuliani’s phones for months and that executing a search warrant against a lawyer for a former president “marks a major turning point in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani.”
So much for turning points, though it could be argued that the blaring headlines generated by the action served to further undermine Donald Trump and the MAGA movement in America.
Giuliani’s lawyers argued that the early morning raids on his home and office were not necessary because he had made clear in 2019 that he would cooperate, according to the Daily Mail.
His legal team said prosecutors instead “simply chose to treat a distinguished lawyer as if he was the head of a drug cartel or a terrorist, in order to create maximum prejudicial coverage of both Giuliani, and his most well known client – the former President of the United States.”
And now, I believe the DOJ is likely getting ready to arrest President Trump for a grand “political stunt” involving the documents that they’ve known about forever, which have been at his home. But President Trump threw a monkey wrench into their plans by announcing his candidacy for president in 2024. Now, if they do pull off this stunt, it will look as if Biden, who keeps claiming he’s running, is trying to remove his opponent. How very “Soviet” of him.
I think they may still go through with it.
Also, Trump’s announcement may give DeSantis a moment or two of clarity to really think through his next move. He should chill out in Florida, be a good governor, and wait his turn.
He’s young. He’s got so much time.
