Guiliani says FBI seized all of his electronic devices, but refused to take Hunter Biden’s hard drives


Former New York City Mayor and Trump legal counsel Rudy Guiliani said when the FBI raided his home this week, they took all of his electronic devices, but flat out refused to take Hunter Biden’s hard drive.

The FBI wanted nothing to do with it. They took every device that could have been used to communicate with President Trump including his phone, his laptops, computers…everything.

But when the former mayor told the agents, “Hey, you forgot to take Hunter Biden’s hard drives”, the agents refused. Giuliani insisted the agents take everything. In fact, the search warrant demanded that every electronic device be taken, but the agents refused.

“About six o’clock in the morning there was a big bang bang bang on the door and outside were seven seven FBI agents with a warrant for electronics and I looked at the warrant and I said you know this is extraordinary because I’ve offered to give these to the government and talk it over with government for two years,” Giuliani said.

The Trump team lawyer said the agents were apologetic and professional during his encounter.

“They were very, very professional and very gentlemanly the only time they got perturbed is at the end of the surge when they had taken about I’d say seven or eight electronic items of mine which is what they took and and two of someone else’s,” he said. “They weren’t taking the three hard drives which of course are electronic devices they just mimic the the computer I said well don’t you want these and they said what are they I said those are Hunter Biden’s hard drives and they said no no no no no!”

Giuliani continued to push the Hunter Biden hard drives on the FBI agents, but with no success.

“I said are you sure you don’t want that I mean the warrant required them to take it and they said no and, one last time I said don’t you think you should take it to comp and they said no.”

exculpatory it proves that the president and i and all of us are innocent they’re the ones who are committing it’s like it’s like projection they’re committing the crimes yep that well well they managed to interject to say it’s i think literally projections so from what we have read in the press the department of justice wants to know whether you violated farah the foreign agents registration act in representing foreign nationals ukrainians for pay you didn’t register they’re saying that may have been a crime we know for a fact that hunter biden did that he didn’t register under pharah he represented ukrainians he probably made a lot more than you did he also represented chinese nationals lobbying his dad and he has not been charged with a fair violation am i missing something here yeah you’re missing uh you know equal administration of justice which is what we don’t have anymore the reality is the hard drive contains somewhere between a dozen or more violations of pharah that are spelled out uh completely failure to register uh the fact is it also spells out as we now know a clear violation of the gun act the the the application is a straight out fraud he says i’m not an addict we have a picture of him five days before smoking a crack pipe behind the wheel of a car and then saying under oath that he’s not an addict and it’s the left that gets all perturbed about people who are mentally unstable having guns well he was unstable he’s been he unfortunately and tragically i i feel sorry for that part of hunter biden i think his father exploited him but the reality is he’s still a danger to the public if he’s driving an automobile or holding a gun but they don’t care about that no they come according to my apartment when i when i’m willing to talk to them civilly myself and uh second i can tell you i never ever represented a foreign national i in fact i have in my contracts a refusal to do it because from the time i got out of being mayor i didn’t want to lobby never did it to bush never did it obama never did it with trump and i can prove it just give me an opportunity but they always instead they had a breakdown i would say breakdown but smash on my doors uh in a frightening way lucky i don’t get frightened very easily i handled them very professionally and they handled me very professionally i want to make that point also hunter i am a lawyer who has prosecuted a lot more serious cases that have been prosecuted in the u.s attorney’s office since i left and the reality is that that warrant is completely illegal the only way you can get a search warrant is if you can show that there’s some evidence that the person is going to destroy the evidence or is going to or is going to run away with the evidence well i’ve had it for two years and i haven’t destroyed it and they also got it from the icloud so there was no there was no justification for that warrant it is an illegal unconstitutional war uh one of many that this department of injustice tragically has done and it breaks my heart because i belong to the justice department and i think i had a record that’s a hell of a lot better than theirs joe biden said he didn’t know the lincoln project knew the guys who covered up child molestation but joe biden says he didn’t know that this raid was coming do you take that at face value maybe he doesn’t remember i’m not sure if he can retain anything for more than about you know the time it takes to read it but in any event who cares if he knew or not and the reality is how the lincoln project knowing means that they have a serious leak in a very important investigation we have been warning of that for two years my lawyer bob costello has written to them four times to plug up the leaks they’ve done nothing to do that so let me interrupt you i just i should have done this at the outset i just want to make absolutely certain that we understand our viewers understand what it is the justice department says they’re investigating we’ve read it’s a fair violation is there something else what have they said to you about what they’re looking into they haven’t said anything they won’t explain to me what they’re looking into for two years uh we’ve called them five six occasions said tell us what you’re investigating we’ll come in and address it no just come in and talk to us tell us about your whole life because that’s ridiculous and so i have to go i have to go as a lawyer on the search warrant the search warrant is proportively based on one single failure to file for representing a ukrainian national or official that i never represented i have never represented a ukrainian national or official before the united states government i’ve declined it several times i’ve had contracts in countries like ukraine in the contract is a clause that says i will not engage in lobbying or foreign representation i don’t do it because i felt it would be too compromising here i am in the middle of representing the president of the united states on a charge that i believe he was innocent of i had great passion about that if you’re a lawyer and you’re representing an innocent man there’s no greater burden you can have and my soul concentration and i am so offended by the things they’ve said about me my soul concentration from the beginning here tucker was to find evidence that would prove what i knew that he was innocent of russian collusion and that he was innocent of doing anything improper he did exactly what a president should do with the president of ukraine he asked him to investigate right a vice president who violated our wars over and over again 30 years of the biden crime family violating our laws that is what is on the hard drive that they have censored and that’s why they want to put me in jail one of the great ironies is the democratic party is hysterical on the subject of russia in part because they’ve taken so much money from ukraine which of course fears russia and has for for an awful long time they’re being paid to hate russia but let me just ask you so now they’ve taken your phone they’ve taken they’ve got all your texts they’ve got all your digital communications so unless you’ve been in mass 12 hours a day for the last five years like is there anybody who could no it’s a sincere question i’m not i mean is there anybody i know if the justice department was out for you and they’ve got every text you’ve ever sent and every email that they couldn’t find something to charge you with do you think this is going to remain a fairer investigation or could it get much bigger quickly well i think it should get much bigger i think they should be investigated for blatantly violating my constitutional rights the president’s constitutional rights in the middle of the impeachment defense they invaded without telling me my icloud they took documents that are privileged and then they you know how to really decided what they could read and not read so the prosecutors the justice department spied on me and that is if that is not taken seriously if that doesn’t result in there being sanctioned the case being dismissed and it’s stopping this is no longer uh a free we might as well be in you know east berlin before the war fell this is this is tactics only known in a dictatorship where you you seized a lawyer’s records right in the middle of his representation of his client uh i mean you should be prosecuted and just barred for that you shouldn’t be prosecuting somebody else i agree i agree with that they’re agreeing with that they’re a disgrace to a great department they’re a disgrace to a great department that i served honorably and well it’s shocking i hope you’ll come back i have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot about i will story former mayor rudy giuliani thank you
