For a month and a half now, Donald Trump has been whining petulantly because he lost the presidential election to someone he considers “the worst candidate in history,” Joe Biden. Trump has been pushing ever more bizarre conspiracy theories about election “rigging” that have no support or evidence to back them up.
Trump’s lead attorney in this futile masquerade is the infamous Rudy Giuliani. As a lawyer, Giuliani has failed to advance Trump’s delusional cause. In fact, there have been nearly sixty court cases lost to date because no relevant evidence was presented.
Now Giuliani himself is the subject of an investigation. It appears to be related to his misadventures in Ukraine, where he was trying to extort the president into manufacturing negative stories about Biden. Two of his associates in this matter have already been arrested. NBC News is reporting that…
“Federal prosecutors have discussed making a legal request for Rudy Giuliani’s electronic communications, two sources familiar with the probe tell NBC News, a sign that the investigation into President Donald Trump’s personal attorney remains active and may soon be ramping up.” […]”in October 2019, The Wall Street Journal reported that prosecutors from the Southern District were reviewing Giuliani’s bank records as part of an investigation into his dealings in Ukraine. Two of his former associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested that month on charges of campaign finance fraud and have since been charged with additional crimes related to wire fraud conspiracy. Parnas and Fruman have pleaded not guilty.”
Naturally, Giuliani is asserting that he is innocent. But he’s going even further to claim that he’s actually proud of the allegations against him:
I’m proud to be number one on Biden Vindictive government list.
Sounds like the DOJ anti-Trumpers can't wait for Biden to make DOJ the GOVERNMENT Secret Police like they were under Obama.
They want to seize my emails.

It will surprise no one that Giuliani’s outrage is utterly incoherent. After all, this is the brilliant legal mind who proclaimed that “truth isn’t truth,” and held a press conference at the Four Seasons – not the fancy hotel, but a local landscaping company.
Giuliani seems to think that Joe Biden is already president. Why else would claim that he’s the victim of the “Biden Vindictive government” when there isn’t any Biden government at all? Giuliani then waters that assertion down by attributing his persecution to “DOJ anti-Trumpers.” However, the investigation of Giuliani is being conducted by Trump appointees in the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York. And they report to Trump’s had-picked Attorney Genuflect, Bill Barr. So if anyone is acting as the “GOVERNMENT Secret Police,” it’s Trump and his Justice Department.
Finally, Giuliani complains that there is no reason for this investigation because there has been no wrongdoing. That, of course, is not the opinion of the investigators who have already secured the indictments of Giuliani’s associates. As for attorney/client privilege, there is no evidence that that has been breached, and any warrant for Giuliani’s electronic communications would have to be reviewed by an independent board and approved by A.G. Barr.
Giuliani is typical of the losers who have hitched their carts to Trump, the most criminally compromised president ever. Why do you think so many of Trump’s associates have required pardons? Which, by the way, is something that is also being discussed for Giuliani. If there was no wrongdoing, why would he need a pardon? And you know things are going straight down the tubes when Giuliani is whining because he can’t get booked on Fox News:
