A day after federal prosecutors executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s apartment, a frantic former President Trump took to Fox News to whine about the raid by federal agents on his former lawyer’s place, calling it “very unfair” and claiming “I don’t know what they’re looking for.”
“Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot. He just loves this country, and they raid his apartment,” Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings with Maria” early Thursday.
“It’s like so unfair and…it’s like a double standard like I don’t think anybody’s ever seen before,” he continued. “It’s very, very unfair. Rudy is a patriot who loves this country.”
“I don’t know what they’re looking for or what they’re doing,” Trump said. “They say it had to do with filings of various papers and lobbying files. Well, did Hunter [Biden] file? Did [President] Biden file? Because they did a lot of work with other countries. To the best of everyone’s knowledge, they didn’t file.”
“It’s a very, very unfair situation,” he said. “It is so terrible when you see the things going on in our country with the corruption and the problems and then they go after Rudy Giuliani. It’s very said, actually.”
Trump on Fox: “Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot, he does these things, he just loves this country, and they raid his apartment. It’s like, so unfair, and such a double standard … like I don’t think anybody’s ever seen before…. I don’t know what they’re looking for”

The former president complained it was a double standard in the treatment of former officials in his administration compared to Democratic figures.
He then focused on allegations that former Secretary of State John Kerry discussed Israeli military operations with Iran’s foreign minister during his time in the Obama administration.
“It is incredible because you bring up John Kerry and the horrible thing that he did and was doing for a period of time,” Trump said.
Kerry has denied the allegations, saying they are “unequivocally false.”
“This never happened – either when I was Secretary of State or since,” Kerry tweeted on Monday.
