Unscathed Rudy Giuliani calls feds ‘bullies’ after NYC raid

Rudy Giuliani remained defiant on Thursday, labeling the federal authorities who raided his Manhattan apartment and office as “bullies.”

“You’re not going to stop me. And you’re not going to convict me of some phony crime,” the Republican former New York City mayor said on his WABC Radio show.

He was referring to prosecutors in the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, who have been investigating his dealings in Ukraine.

Giuliani, who used to run that office as US attorney in Manhattan in the 1980s, touted his accomplishments in the role, including his prosecutions of mob figures and Wall Street swindlers.

“And what have they done? What have they done? Nothing, except come after me … at six o’clock in the morning with a piece of nonsense. No wonder they’re jealous,” Giuliani said.

The Wednesday-morning raid marked an escalation in the feds’ probe into Giuliani, the personal lawyer of former President Donald Trump.

The feds are reportedly examining whether Giuliani illegally lobbied Trump on behalf of of officials and oligarchs in Ukraine, who were helping him dig up dirt on Trump’s political rivals, including then-Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

On his radio show, Giuliani said he couldn’t go into the details of the case, but again denied working on behalf of any foreign entities.

He previously blasted the feds’ raid as “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
