Giuliani, Prosecutors Pick Ex-Judge to Review Raid Evidence

Source: Bloomberg

“A retired Manhattan federal judge who once worked as a prosecutor under Rudy Giuliani was nominated to review evidence seized from the former New York mayor and personal lawyer to Donald Trump for materials protected by attorney-client privilege. Giuliani and federal prosecutors in Manhattan agreed to propose that Barbara Jones, 73, be appointed special master for that purpose. She served in a similar role after search warrants were executed on another Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, in 2018. … Federal Bureau of Investigation agents collected Giuliani’s personal electronic devices and computers in April 28 raids on his Manhattan home and office. Giuliani is under investigation for possible undisclosed foreign lobbying on behalf of Ukrainian interests.” (06/04/21)
