On Wednesday, The New York Post reported that the FBI had seized electronic devices from lawyer Victoria Toensing.
The article reports:
Federal investigators on Wednesday morning seized electronic devices from lawyer Victoria Toensing, who is a close associate of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a source familiar with the events said.
The move came around the same time investigators executed a search warrant at Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and office.
Agents came to Toensing’s Washington, D.C.,-area home, confiscated her phone and left without searching the house, the source said.
“She would have been happy to turn over any relevant documents. All they had to do was ask. Ms. Toensing was informed that she is not a target of the investigation,” a spokesperson for her law firm said.
I know it is just an incredible coincidence that both Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing were both involved in investigating the election fraud that occurred in the 2020 presidential election.
The article concludes:
An attorney for Giuliani, Robert Costello, told The Post agents seized his electronic devices as they searched his Upper East Side apartment.
Costello blasted the raid in a statement, saying DOJ targeted the former mayor because of “Trump derangement syndrome.”
“It is outrageous that the Trump Derangement Syndrome has gone so far that hatred has driven this unjustified and unethical attack on the United States Attorney and Mayor who did more to reduce crime than virtually any other in American history,” the statement said.
“Mr. Giuliani respects the law, and he can demonstrate that his conduct as a lawyer and a citizen was absolutely legal and ethical.”
A spokesperson for the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York declined to comment on the raid.
This looks an awful lot like the intimidation tactics of a tyrannical government. Unless these abuses of government power are stopped, we will be continuing down a dangerous road.
