F.B.I. Searches Giuliani’s Home and Office, Seizing Phones and Computers

The search warrants were obtained as part of an investigation into illegal lobbying

Federal investigators on Wednesday seized cellphones and computers from Rudolph Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City who became President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the investigation said.

F.B.I. agents executed search warrants around 6 a.m. at Giuliani’s apartment on Madison Avenue and his Park Avenue office in Manhattan, carting away the electronic devices, Giuliani confirmed in a statement.

The execution of search warrants is an extraordinary action for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president. The move marked a major development in the long-running investigation into Giuliani, which examines some of the same people and conduct that were at the center of Trump’s first impeachment trial.
