The son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani went on Russian TV to push conspiracy theories about the federal investigation of his father.
Andrew Giuliani accused the American government of hacking his fauther's iCloud account (the feds reportedly gained access via a warrant).
"The thing that's been amazing is over the last couple of weeks, how many people -- and some of these people are people who haven't talked to my father in five or ten years -- have come out and said, 'We may not have always agreed with your politics, but we completely agree this is absolutely the wrong thing to see our Justice Department politicize something as badly as they have.' So it's been people who have been very strong Trump supporters and some who have not been Trump supporters. They don't want to live in a country where you're going to have a Justice Department that is going to politicize something to the point where a former president's personal counsel is going actually be spied on by the Justice Department," he claimed.
"And that's very scary for just everyday citizens, cause like you said, if they do it him, they could do it to us and no one would probably even know," Russia Today personality Scottie Nell Hughes.

On Thursday, WFLX reported that gasoline panic-buyers in Florida have stripped fuel from over a third of gas stations in the Miami metro area.
This is in spite of the fact, according to oil analyst Patrick De Haan, the Miami area is not even serviced by the Colonial Pipeline in the first place.
"Drivers are still dashing to gas stations to fill up their tanks, leading to shortages across the state," said the report. "According to crowdsourced data from Gas Buddy, 30 percent of gas stations in Florida are without gas, 38 percent of stations in the West Palm Beach area, and 39 percent of gas stations in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area. At the Mobil gas station in Ocean Breeze, employee Hedy Bastedo has had a front-row seat to watch drivers make panic purchases."
"I was going to head to Fort Pierce, but I don't think I'll make it," said Gail Wood, a driver who checked three stations for premium fuel and came up empty. "This is crazy."
The Colonial Pipeline shut down after being struck with a ransomware attack — and is now getting back on line after having paid the hackers roughly $5 million. The pipeline serves a number of states along a route stretching from the Southern United States up to New Jersey. However, the majority of gas shortages were not caused by the pipeline shutdown, but by panicked drivers buying more gas than they need in anticipation of their pumps shutting down.
The hoarding behavior has led to dangerous incidents around the country. In another part of Florida, Citrus County, one driver improperly stored 20 gallons of gasoline in his Hummer, causing a catastrophic fire.

The host of "The Daily Show" broke down the hard-right shift by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY).
"For a while, Stefanik was pretty much what used to be called a normal Republican," Trevor Noah said. "And then in late 2019, she saw an opportunity to make like Billie Eilish and give herself an eye-catching new image."
He played a clip from CNN documenting Stefanik's change.
"Now, to outsiders, this might have seemed like Stefanik suddenly embracing the Dark Side. You know, like Anakin [Skywalker] turning into Darth Vader -- except for the part about wearing a mask. But the truth is, she probably just made a straightforward calculation," he explained. "She saw where the party was going, and she decided to go along with it."
"You know, it's just a little awkward to start rooting for someone after being publicly disgraced," he added, with a joke about R. Kelly.
Elise Stefanik started her career as a “normal Republican,” distancing herself from Trump as he ran for president.… https://t.co/6jKDFsv9sV— The Daily Show (@The Daily Show) 1620945755.0
