Rudy Giuliani's home raided in 2021 by FBI probing Ukraine allegations

Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City and one of Donald Trump's closest allies, was raided by federal investigators in 2021 as part of an investigation into his connections with Ukraine.

Court records confirmed that investigators raided the former New York City mayor based on allegations that he had illegally lobbied on behalf of Ukraine. 

For those who pay attention to American politics, to see Giuliani being investigated for his connections to Ukraine is interesting. It seems that every major political figure has some connection to Ukraine.

From Hunter Biden to Giuliani, it seems everyone in Washington D.C. is involved in Ukraine which is now embroiled in a massive war with Russia.

Allegedly, Giuliani was suspected of pushing to have the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine removed on behalf of interests in the country. Those allegations didn't seem to go anywhere as Giuliani faced no charges from the investigation.

Everything comes back to Ukraine

The warrant authorizing the raid was issued in order to let investigators determine if Giuliani had received illegal compensation from the Trump administration for lobbying to have Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch fired.

It should be noted that Yovanovitch was a key witness against Trump that Democrats paraded around for weeks.

In fact, during her testimony against Trump in front of Congress, Trump took to Twitter to blast her saying, "everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad."

The warrant against Giuliani argued that, "Giuliani was interested in being engaged to do that work, and proposed a retainer with a $200,000 upfront payment. Thus, it appears that Giuliani took steps to cause the firing of the Ambassador to prove … what he could achieve."

The warrant also touched on allegations that Giuliani was pressuring the Ukrainian government to investigate then-former Vice President Joe Biden.

All of this tied into the first impeachment case against Trump based on allegations of quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Bad years for Giuliani

Ultimately, this raid on Giuliani's home led to nothing and raises questions of what the true intentions behind the investigation really were.

Investigators closed the investigation into Giuliani in late 2022 based on the lack of evidence behind the investigation. Unfortunately, that wouldn't be the end of Giuliani's legal troubles.

He's facing criminal charges in Georgia related to allegations that he worked to overturn the 2020 election results. He also has been hit with a $148 million fine related to a defamation case in Georgia which is also connected to his 2020 election activities.
