Rudy Giuliani, former lawyer and advisor to ex-President Donald Trump, may have been compromised by Russian intelligence during the 2020 campaign, according to a statement from FBI whistleblower Johnathan Buma.

He claims that Giuliani was utilized by a Ukrainian oligarch with connections to Russian intelligence for a disinformation campaign intended to discredit Joe Biden and boost Trump in the 2020 election.
