On Tuesday, CNBC reported that Trump ally Rudy Giuliani is moving to block three items on his electronic devices under search warrant from being seized, out of more than 2,000.
"Giuliani is claiming that those three items are protected by attorney-client privilege, which would prevent them from being given to federal prosecutors, according to Barbara Jones, the so-called special master who is adjudicating such claims," reported Dan Mangan and Kevin Breunninger. "'I am reserving decision on those three items,' Jones wrote in her filing in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. 'The remaining 2,223 items have been released to the Government.'"
The warrant is related to a criminal probe into Giuliani's dealings in Ukraine, and whether those efforts constitute illegal lobbying.
"The items were contained on seven of the 16 devices seized under search warrants executed at Giuliani's Manhattan apartment and office in April. Jones is reviewing the remaining nine devices, so Giuliani could end up making more claims of privilege," said the report. "All of the items reviewed so far were created on or after Jan. 1, 2018, according to Jones."
This comes amid a string of embarrassments for Giuliani, as he is banned from Fox News for promoting lies about the 2020 presidential election.
