The Gateway Pundit reported in August that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was expected to not face any federal charges regarding a FARA investigation.
New York Federal prosecutors on Monday told a federal judge “based on information currently available (on Rudy Giuliani) to the Government, criminal charges are not forthcoming.”
Federal prosecutors were attempting to pin Giuliani on violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act for allegedly interacting with Ukrainian figures.
Since the beginning of the investigation, Giuliani has maintained his innocence.
Robert Costello, one of Giuliani’s attorneys called Monday’s decision a “total victory.”
🚨COMPLETE & TOTAL VINDICATION🚨
I will be responding to the rightful decision by the Southern District of New York to drop all charges tonight at 8 pm ET right here on my Twitter livestream. You won’t want to miss this! https://t.co/U0sL0qeZX6

Recall, in April of 2021 Rudy’s home was raided by the FBI.
In total, the FBI confiscated over 18 electronic devices and searched Rudy’s iCloud account.
One of the most memorable moments about the raid was Rudy asked FBI agents if they want Hunter Brandon’s laptop hard drive which the agents refused to take.
Tucker Carlson says the one electronic device the FBI refused to take during raid today was Rudy Giuliani’s copy of Hunter Brandon’s laptop/hard drive. He also says the Lincoln Project learned about the raid days before it happened, thus the tweet teasing something big happening pic.twitter.com/0VrlTK9N5n
