Kan Nawaday was featured on MSNBC on April 29 and May 2, 2021, discussing the search warrants that FBI agents executed at the Manhattan apartment and office of Rudolph W. Giuliani. Giuliani, best known lately as one of several personal counsels for former President Donald Trump, is the former mayor of New York City, as well as the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
According to MSNBC, federal investigators have reportedly taken an interest in the lawyer's work with Ukrainian officials – whom Giuliani turned to for help in digging up dirt against Joe Biden – while lobbying the Trump White House on Ukrainians' behalf.
“The case against Lev Parnas and his co-defendants about the Ukraine fundraising using straw donors could be the kernel that began this investigation, but until we see the search warrant and the types of crimes the Southern District of New York is investigating, we don’t know,” Nawaday said of what lead to this raid and seizure. “This is not political, and there’s a simple reason for that: a prosecutor can’t bring a search warrant unless they’ve gone to an independent judge and shown that they have evidence that there’s going to be evidence of crime in the place to be searched,” he said.
