Last Wednesday, a loud notice was sent from the Justice Department, which is now headed by a man with integrity and morals, Merrick Garland.
The message: If you break the law — no matter who you may be “connected” to — the DOJ is coming for you.
Rudy Giuliani found that out the hard way. He was the recipient of a visit from the FBI, who served search warrants on his apartment and office, seizing his cell phones and computers.
And now many former Trump staffers are terrified the next knock on their door will also be from the FBI, according to a report from CNN:
“‘This was a show of force that sent a strong message to a lot of people in Trump’s world that other things may be coming down the pipeline,’ one Trump adviser told CNN.
“According to the Trump adviser, the raid ignited a sense of fear inside the former President’s orbit that Justice Department officials may be more willing to pursue investigations of the 45th president or his inner circle than many Trump allies had previously believed. Two other people close to the former President, who echoed these sentiments, declined to be quoted for this story.”
The biggest fear among former Trump staffers is that if Giuliani is facing decades behind bars, he’ll flip and cooperate with prosecutors to save his own ass:
Speaking of Michael Cohen, he’s convinced Guiliani will indeed roll on Trump and his former underlings:
“During an appearance on CNN earlier this week, Cohen himself speculated that Giuliani could ‘give up Donald in a heartbeat’ if faced with an indictment.
“‘Prior to Donald becoming president, Rudy didn’t like Donald and Donald didn’t like Rudy,’ Cohen claimed. ‘He certainly doesn’t want to follow my path down into a 36-month sentence.'”
Anyone with a connection to Trump and his crimes is in legal jeopardy. And every last one of them is praying Rudy will keep his mouth shut.
