Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani revealed in an interview this weekend that his lawyer was told by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan that both his and President Donald Trump’s iCloud chats were surveilled by the FBI during the 2019 impeachment trial.
Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, “asked [the prosecutor] to repeat it because he couldn’t believe it was true,” said the former mayor.
He explained that while Democrats were investigating Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Justice Department “invaded my iCloud.” Giuliani further lamented:
“I can’t fathom that would be done to an ordinary citizen… The president doesn’t have any more rights than anybody else, but he doesn’t have any less. To me, they just trashed the president of the United States like he has no constitutional rights.”
Expanding on the idea of destroying constitutional rights, Giuliani explained that, “Unless these people have no ethics or any sense of what it means to be a lawyer, what you do when you do that, people who listen to this now say how can I trust talking to my lawyer… The government may come in and start listening to it or might try to see text of memoranda.”
