Rudy Giuliani is not ‘above the law’ or immune to criminal probes despite acting as Trump attorney, Feds say

Federal prosecutors on Friday said in a new court filing that “the mere fact” that Rudy Giuliani is a lawyer — one who represented former President Donald Trump — does not mean that he is “above the law or immune to a criminal investigation.”

The filing pushed back on efforts by Giuliani’s own attorneys to attack the legality of search warrants for his iCloud account in 2019, and for the former New York City mayor’s Manhattan home and office last month, which were issued as part of an ongoing criminal probe into his activities in and related to Ukraine.

Eighteen electronic devices belonging to Giuliani and to employees of Giuliani Partners were seized in late April as part of those warrants.

Giuliani’s lawyers argue that the search of his iCloud — which was not known to Giuliani for about 18 months — may have violated both his attorney-client privilege, and the right of Trump as president to have his communications with his lawyer protected.

1. Attorney-Client Privilege

I have always wondered if Rudolph William Louis Giuliani (RWLG) was 'ever-actually' employed by Donald John Trump (DJT) either before DJT's term in office OR during his term in office OR after his term in office.

I thought that an attorney-client agreement was BOTH essential AND necessary, along with a retainer comprised of some set amount of money whenever there was representation by an attorney-lawyer of a specific client.

Would someone please show me where I might locate said agreement (if one is available) between DJT and RWLG. Noting that an attorney-lawyer standing next-by-each of a person and stating "I am his attorney-lawyer" does NOT create an attorney-client arrangement.

2. That Remains To Be Seen

I won't hold my breath that he or any of the other CRIMINALS associated with Drumpf, will be held accountable for their actions.
