New York | Donald Trump and Joe Biden accused each other Thursday of “politicizing” the Justice Department, a day after federal agents searched Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s former personal attorney.
In an interview with Fox Business News, the former Republican president described this search for his former lawyer as “extremely unfair”, whom he considers “the greatest mayor in New York history” and a “great patriot.”
Donald Trump said: “He just loves his country and they search his apartment, it’s unfair and very double standards, we’ve never seen that (…) I don’t know what they’re looking for or what they’re doing.”
Asked about NBC, his Democratic successor, Joe Biden, said he was not warned about the search.
“I have pledged not to intervene in any way, to issue orders or attempt to stop any administrative investigation,” Biden said. “I was informed (of the search) last night like the rest of the world, and I had no idea it was in progress.”
The United States added: “The previous government politicized the Department of Justice terribly, and many (employees) resigned, because this is not their role – it is not the president’s role to say who should be prosecuted. When should they be tried,” the United States added. President.
