Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has described how he obtained a copy of a hard drive that allegedly contained emails related to Hunter Biden's overseas business interests.
In an interview airing on Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin" Sunday evening, Giuliani -- now President Trump's personal attorney -- told host Mark Levin that the Delaware computer shop owner who allegedly took possession of Hunter Biden's laptop told an FBI agent he was "really afraid because the Bidens are very powerful around here."
Hunter Biden's business interests in Ukraine came under special attention last year as House Democrats pursued an impeachment inquiry surrounding President Trump's July 2019 request that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate Joe Biden, who was suspected of abusing his authority as vice president to pressure the Kiev government into firing its top prosecutor in March 2016.
Months later, after House Democrats began impeachment proceedings against Trump, Giuliani claimed the shop owner became angry by "what he regarded, from what he had seen on the tape, as very, very false allegations" against the president and contacted "a group of people and sent out notes [saying] 'I have something.'"
One person the shop owner contacted was former federal prosecutor Robert Costello, Giuliani's own personal attorney.
