Trump Justice Department Sought to Block Search of Giuliani Records

In the final months of the Trump administration, senior Justice Department officials repeatedly sought to block federal prosecutors in Manhattan from taking a crucial step in their investigation into Rudolph W. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, delaying a search warrant for some of Mr. Giuliani’s electronic records, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The actions by political appointees at the Justice Department in Washington effectively slowed the investigation as it was gaining momentum last year.

In the final months of 2020, the prosecutors were still delving into whether Mr. Giuliani had illegally lobbied the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs who had helped him look for dirt in 2019 on Joseph R. Biden Jr., then a leading Democratic candidate, the people said.

=============
My grandmother used to say, "where there is smoke, there is fire." So, why would the Trump Admin stymie an investigation into whether Trump's personal lawyer lobbied the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs who had helped him look for dirt in 2019 on Joseph R. Biden Jr. if there wasn't substantive to find there? Fortunately, the Biden Admin won't block such an investigation.

A guy who was called " America's Mayor," has turned out to be such a crook.

Similarly with Trump's tax returns which have been 'under audit' for over four years now! Nothing to hide Donnie? Let's see them.

It is downright sad what a disgusting and pathetic creature Rudy Giuliani has become. Truly vile man. Repulsive, ignorant, corrupt and sick.

The Trump Admin....most crooked and corrupt in history. And that's saying a lot.

We knew he was a piece of shit during the 2008 Republican primary. The way the establishment Republican's railroaded Ron Paul only to do an about face as the movement he helped create took steam is a ****ing disgrace. Now... i no longer support many of the platforms from the Paul political family, but they are currently a major pillar within the GOP.

And that's how you know they (GOP establishment) have zero integrity. Rudy was just the canary in the coal mine.
