A day after the FBI raided Rudy Giuliani’s office and apartment, President Biden claims he did not previously know about the raid. In an interview with TODAY, he is also claiming he was not briefed about an investigation into Giuliani at all.

Biden told host Craig Melvin that he was not involved in an investigation into Trump’s personal lawyer. “I learned about that last night when the rest of the world learned about it,” Biden said. “My word. I had no idea this was underway.”

He also said that he made “a pledge” to remain uninvolved. “I’m not asking to be briefed. That’s the Justice Department’s independent judgment.”

Robert Costello, a lawyer who previously represented Steve Bannon, made a statement on behalf of Rudy Giuliani.

“The search warrants involve only one indication of an alleged incident of failure to register as a foreign agent,” Costello writes. “The Biden department of justice has completely ignored clear evidence in texts and emails on Hunter Biden’s hard drive of failing to register numerous times as a foreign agent.”

Costello also claims that Giuliani tried to reason with the Southern District of New York outside of court. “Twice, Mr. Giuliani’s counsel offered to sit with the SDNY and demonstrate that Mr. Giuliani’s conduct was lawful,” the statement reads.

Authorities are reportedly looking into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied former President Trump on behalf of Ukraine.

Rudy Giuliani’s team didn’t immediately respond to this reporter’s request for comment.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
