President Biden says he was not aware of Giuliani raid beforehand

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.

Palestinians in Gaza stealing food aid before it can be delivered, ‘nothing getting through’

The United Nations has proven to be incredibly trustworthy and bias against Israel as it fights for its survival against Hamas. Senior U.N. aid official Edem Wosornu said there were “insufficient supplies and fuel to provide any meaningful level of support to the people of Gaza as they endure Israel’s military onslaught against Hamas militants.”

However, food and medicine for Palestinians in Gaza are piling up in Egypt because the Rafah crossing remains closed and there has been no aid delivered to a U.N. warehouse from a U.S.-built pier for two days, reports Reuters.

National Review explains the issue: the food aid is getting stolen before it can reach the World Food Program warehouse . . . just eight miles away. Once the food aid leaves the pier, the United Nations, international partners, and the “humanitarian community” oversee getting the aid to those who need it most. And they’re getting robbed, hijacked, and mugged.

The Gaza Pier is complete and operational, which is what the Biden administration wanted, allowing for headlines such as: “U.S. military starts delivering aid to Gaza through floating pier” this past weekend. However, “what you’re not as likely to hear about is what happens to the aid after it leaves the pier” writes National Review.

Apparently some Palestinians stole so much of the aid from the first shipments that the following shipments are on hold until authorities can find enough security.

Reuters tells the grim tale:

Aid deliveries began arriving at a U.S.-built pier on Friday as Israel comes under growing global pressure to allow more supplies into the besieged coastal enclave. The U.N. agreed to assist in coordinating aid distribution from the floating pier, but has remained adamant that deliveries by land are the best way to combat the crisis.

The U.N. said that 10 truckloads of food aid – transported from the pier site by U.N. contractors – were received on Friday at a World Food Program warehouse in Deir El Balah in Gaza.

But on Saturday, only five truckloads made it to the warehouse after 11 others were cleaned out by Palestinians during the journey through an area that a U.N. official said has been hard to access with humanitarian aid. [Emphasis added.]

“They’ve not seen trucks for a while,” a U.N. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. “They just basically mounted on the trucks and helped themselves to some of the food parcels.”

The U.N. did not receive any aid from the pier on Sunday or Monday. “We need to make sure that the necessary security and logistical arrangements are in place before we proceed,” said the U.N. official.

In summation, Palestinians in Gaza stole the food parcels before they could be distributed at the intended destination, and nothing’s gotten through since Saturday.
