RUDY Giuliani slammed the New York Times, NBC & the Washington Post as "fake news" after the outlets retracted their stories following the FBI raid on his home.
The FBI raided Giuliani's New York City home and office on Wednesday as part of a sweeping investigation into Giuliani's Ukranian dealings and lobbying efforts.
On Saturday, the Times, Post and NBC all issued retractions about their reporting that claimed Giuliani received a formal warning from the FBI about Russian disinformation.
The outlet's clarified that Giuliani did not receive the so-called defensive briefing.
Giuliani seized on the corrections, demanding the Times and Washington Post to "reveal their sources".
"On a Saturday, the Washington Post added this correction to their defamatory story about me. The Washington Post and the NYT must reveal their sources who lied and targeted an American Citizen.
"#msnbc , #cnn forgot to mention the corrections today. #fakenews#badpeople," the former New York City Mayor tweeted.
During an interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Friday, Giuliani blamed the feds for "spying" on his iCloud account two years before agents raided his Upper East Side home.
During the interview, Giuliani was angered that agents allegedly previously took access to his iCloud storage and email accounts.
He told the host, “In the middle of the impeachment defense they invaded, without telling me, my iCloud.
"They took documents that are privileged, and then they unilaterally decided what they could read and not read," according to a transcript of the interview.
Giuliani recalled hearing bangs on his front door at dawn on Wednesday.
Simultaneously, the feds also searched fellow lawyer and Giuliani’s close confidant Victoria Toensing's home as part of the evidence grab.
Giuliani feels his rights as a citizen and attorney-client privileges have been subjugated.
“The prosecutors in the Justice Department spied on me,” the former New York City mayor and federal prosecutor said.
“These are tactics only known in a dictatorship — where you seize a lawyer’s records in the middle of his representation.”
Giuliani’s attorney Robert Costello also reprimanded the Justice Department under the current Joe Biden administration for perpetuating a double standard.
He claimed they are ignoring "clear evidence" of wrongdoing by prominent Democrats, including President Biden's family.
