George Conway: I Think Rudy Giuliani Is In 'Deep S**t'
Republican gadfly George Conway gave an open assessment of what might come for Rudy Giuliani, ex-President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, whose business dealings are currently under scrutiny by the FBI.
"I think he's in deep shit," said Conway, a vocal Trump critic throughout his presidency, despite his wife Kellyanne Conway's high position in administration, on the episode of the Daily Beast podcast "The New Abnormal" from Monday.
Federal agents seized electronic devices during a raid on Giuliani's Manhattan home and office last week. The investigation focuses on the eviction of Marie Yovanovitch from her job as the US ambassador to Ukraine, Reuters reported.
Giuliani denies wrongdoing.
But Conway said the fact that the raids even took place sent a very bad signal to the former New York mayor.
"The Justice Department doesn't run search warrants on attorneys, and the reason they don't like this is because they don't want to get into messy arguments over the privilege of attorneys and clients," explained Conway, a lawyer.
Conway explained the expanded process involved in obtaining search warrants against attorneys, including express authorization from senior Justice Department officials.
"That says a lot to you here," he added. “Because although there is a probable cause standard for every search warrant, you must demonstrate that there was a probable cause for a crime to be committed and that there is a basis for believing that enforcement of the warrant provides evidence of that crime In this case, they had to do much, much more. "
