Mr. Conway, a Conservative lawyer and husband of Kellyanne Conway – a former adviser to Mr. Trump – was speaking to the Daily beastThe “The New Abnormal” podcast on the subject of the former president’s baseless allegations of electoral fraud, before discussing the FBI investigation into Mr. Giuliani.
It follows two raids on the former presidential prosecutor’s apartment and office, with federal investigators seizing computers and cellphones.
While there are no charges against Mr Giuliani, the raids are part of an investigation into the 76-year-old’s trade relations in Ukraine and for lobbying on behalf of foreign officials.
“The Department of Justice doesn’t like executing search warrants against lawyers, do they? And the reason they don’t like that is because they don’t want to get into messy lawyer-client privilege disputes, ”Mr. Conway said.
M. Conway a dit the Daily beast that the fact that the US Department of Justice raided with search warrants was a sign that there was evidence of a crime.
“That tells you a lot here. Because even though there is a probable cause standard for any search warrant – where you have to show that there was probable cause that a crime was committed and that there is reason to believe that the ‘warrant execution provide evidence of this crime – in this case, they must have done much, much more than that. “
“I think he’s in deep shit,” Mr. Conway said the Daily beast. They just wouldn’t do this unless they had proof that they were pretty sure it was enough to prove a crime.
The Conservative lawyer also described Mr. Giuliani as “the big liar” for alleged electoral fraud on behalf of former President Trump.
Mr Giuliani, who denies the foreign lobbying allegations, told Fox News presenter Sean Hannity on Monday that investigators were targeting Mr Trump with the investigation.
“You can’t say their main interest wasn’t Donald Trump,” Giuliani noted. “The day I start portraying it is the day they’re going to invade my iCloud. So try telling someone it wasn’t for information about Donald Trump. “
The former president, in an interview with Fox Business on Friday, described his former lawyer as “a great patriot” and called the FBI raids “unjust.”
