One judge said Friday that he would hire a special educator to protect the attorney-client’s convenience during a review of material seized from Rudy Giuliani and another lawyer representing Donald Trump.
U.S. District Judge Jay Paul Otken has ordered Giuliani’s Manhattan attorney and attorney and Washington’s attorney Victoria Tensing to present potential candidates for the position next week.
Judge Jilliani and Tensing rejected attempts to force prosecutors to disclose further details about the April 27 seizure of the electronic device. Prosecutors made unusual requests for the appointment of attorneys or special educators to protect the interests of the attorney-client. Expeditions, it is necessary to make it clear that the materials were properly reviewed.
Prosecutors are examining Giuliani’s interactions with Ukrainian figures and whether he has violated any laws governing lobbying on behalf of foreign countries or entities.
Prosecutors later revealed that the FBI had successfully downloaded 11 of Giuliani’s devices and returned them to him. They said Giuliani and seven other devices related to his business could not be fully accessed without a passcode and would take more time to unlock.
They said that while some of the devices have not been unlocked yet, they include certain employees of Giuliani Partners LLC, the company of Giuliani.
A Republican and former mayor of New York City, has not been charged, said Giuliani. He said all his activities in Ukraine were conducted in favor of Trump. At the time, Giuliani Biden led a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter before he was elected president.
Tensing’s law firm said after the investigation that he was told he was not the target of the investigation. Investigators only took a phone call from him. Tensing is a former federal prosecutor and a close associate of Giuliani and Trump.
Earlier this week, a lawyer prosecuting two former Manhattan Jilliani associates accidentally revealed that U.S. prosecutors searched the emails of two former Ukrainian government officials and a Ukrainian businessman as part of an investigation into their transactions. Giuliani’s there.
The attorney further revealed that the prosecutors received information about historical and potential cell sites related to Giuliani and Tensing.
Prosecutors say they received Giuliani and Tensing’s email and Apple iCloud accounts in 2019.
Giuliani’s lawyers have challenged the April operation because everything collected from the 2012 search warrant was obtained illegally because investigators incorrectly infiltrated private communications with the president during his secret investigation.
