News that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is officially the subject of a federal investigation by both the FBI and the Southern District of New York U.S. attorneys office was greeted with great rejoicing on Twitter.
Following weeks of Donald Trump’s lawyer making multiple — and widely derided –appearances on TV pushing conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter over business dealings in Ukraine, Giuliani now finds himself being investigated over his own Ukraine shenanigans.
According to ABC’s Evan McMurry, “Federal authorities conducting criminal investigation into business relationship between Rudy Giuliani and the men charged yesterday in alleged campaign finance scheme.”
That sent Twitter denizens into a frenzy of celebration.

The SDNY perp walk of Rudy will be delicious.

Giuliani spent 2016 pressuring the FBI in NY to go after Hillary. This is a very elegant work by karma.

It's pretty dangerous being Trump's personal attorney.
