Former President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, saw his home raided this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)—the execution of a search warrant whose implementation was long delayed by Trump's Justice Department. The raid is believed to be an escalation in the years-long effort from Manhattan U.S. attorneys to investigate Giuliani's potentially illegal lobbying of Ukrainian officials on behalf of Trump.

Both Giuliani and his son, Andrew Giuliani, said the raid was the result of a politicized Justice Department that should disgust Americans across the country.

Rushing to offer a defense, Giuliani is now claiming the Justice Department hacked his iCloud—a virtual storage service—in 2019, and that the Department could soon begin targeting everyday Americans.

Given Giuliani's constant lies about the validity of the 2020 election and his continued salacious claims about President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, few paid heed to Giuliani's accusations.

But people did remind him that Trump was President in 2019, and that his appointee—William Barr—ran the Justice Department as Attorney General at that time.

Giuliani's implication that the Department of Justice acted menacingly by "covertly" accessing his iCloud was false.

It's unclear if the Barr's Justice Department obtained access to Giuliani's iCloud, as he says they did.
