‘If it can happen to the former mayor who led New York City through 9/11, it can happen to you’
Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York mayor and President Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, says the federal agents’ raid on his father’s home and office show that the government can now target anyone.
“When federal agents raided my father’s home at dawn Thursday morning, the Biden Justice Department was sending a clear message to America: If it can happen to the former mayor who led New York City through 9/11, it can happen to you, too,” he said in a Washington Examiner commentary.
“During Joseph Stalin’s reign in the Soviet Union, the dictator staged the Moscow Trials, which put prominent members of his political opposition on trial. Denied any kind of due process, most of the defendants were charged with crimes against the Soviet government. Several were sentenced to death. These show trials, which often centered on the defendants’ collusion with foreign powers, were a late step along the road to Stalin’s mass purges, one of the most horrifying periods in Soviet history,” he said.
