Trump DOJ officials sought to block search of Giuliani records: report

The Trump Justice Department delayed a search warrant for Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's electronic records relating to Ukraine that had been sought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, according to a report by The New York Times.

Prosecutors were seeking the records in late 2020 as part of a probe into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied the White House on behalf of Ukrainians who sought damaging information on then-presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The Times reports that when they reached out to senior Justice officials in Washington, a necessary step in obtaining the communications, senior officials at Justice were concerned such action would be too close to the election.

The Justice Department typically seeks to avoid investigations steeped in politics close to an election. In 2016, FBI Director James Coney announced he was effectively reopening an investigation related to Hillary Clinton's emails as secretary of State just weeks before Election Day. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has continued to blame Coney for her loss to former President Trump.
