Rudy Giuliani Hands Over Phones & Passwords In Ukraine Probe
Rudy Giuliani aided federal prosecutors investigating his dealings in Ukraine by unlocking several phones and providing possible passwords for electronic devices that were obtained by the FBI in a raid of his home and office in April of last year.
“If you are innocent, you don’t have anything to hide and you don’t want allegation of a criminal investigation hanging over your head,” said Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello. “You do things like giving passwords to electronic devices that we had no obligation to. If we thought there was anything bad on those devices, we wouldn’t do it. His actions speak louder than words.”
Costello said Giuliani is also willing to comply with an interview even though it could put him at risk of saying something self-incriminating.
Prosecutors are trying to find out if Giuliani acted on behalf of Ukrainian officials and as former President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney at the same time. Giuliani has adamantly denied acting outside of his role as Trump’s attorney.
