Rudy Giuliani didn’t have the best day on Wednesday after an FBI search of his New York apartment. The raid was reportedly tied to an investigation into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied for the former guy on behalf of officials and oligarchs in Ukraine while Giuliani was there trying to dig up dirt against then-candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Another Trump associate, Victoria Toensing, was also paid a similar visit as the walls close in on the former guy and his cronies.
Rudy’s son Andrew Giuliani faced the press soon after the Feds left the building and tried very hard to make it just a little bit better for his dad. But the former Trump caddy and dubious appointee to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council instead did what a male member of the Giuliani family does on camera:
“This is disgusting. This is absolutely absurd,” Giuliani said outside his father’s swank Manhattan apartment building on East 66th Street.“And it’s the continued politicization of the Justice Department, as we have seen,” Giuliani continued, ignoring the fact that his father helped politicize the Justice Department. “And it has to stop. If this can happen to the former president’s lawyer, this can happen to any American. Enough is enough.”
Rudy Giuliani is going to flip. He doesn't want to dye in prison.

Andrew also bizarrely claimed without proof that a judge appointed by former President Barack Obama signed the warrant during his appearance.
An FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani. An FBI raid on Victoria Toensing. A white-nationalist, insurrectionist "Stop the Steal" leader now on the No Fly List.
It's been a pretty damn amazing 24 hours for the FBI and DOJ finally seeking justice for Americans who believe in this democracy.

Andrew Giuliani put on a real Don Jr-type performance, bellowing and making up words that don’t exist while trying to exonerate his father. The Recount tweeted his remarks and Twitter immediately exploded, comparing him to both Will Ferrell and Chris Farley…and not in a good way.
