- Donald Trump was furious after his lawyer's home and the office was raided by the FBI
- He defended Rudy Giuliani and called him a great patriot and he called the raid "unfair"
- The FBI is interested in Giuliani's business interests in Ukraine and the raid marks an escalation in their investigation
Former president Donald Trump has launched a scathing attack on Fox Business on Thursday in the wake of the raid carried out by the FBI on Rudy Giuliani's home.
Trump reportedly said that it was "like, so unfair." Two locations were raided and federal agents confiscated computers and cell phones. This is a marked escalation in the investigation into Giuliani.
His business dealings are being scrutinised, particularly his work in Ukraine. Tump described Giuliani as a "great patriot" according to the Huffington Post.
He slammed the authorities and accused the FBI of double standards. Trump vaguely mentioned corruption while defending Giuliani saying that Rudy loved his country and it was sad that this happened to him.
Giuliani denied that the raids that took place at his home and office had anything to do with his business interests in Ukraine.
Trump's former lawyer had warned that Guiliani would be the next person he "threw under the bus."
"What I told him was that Donald Trump doesn't care about anyone or anything, that he will be the next one to be thrown under the bus," says Michael Cohen of Rudy Giuliani.
