The feds may have been spurred to raid Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and office based on a voicemail he left a former business associate’s lawyer in which he hinted at having a burner phone, according to a report.
Joseph Bondy, the attorney for ex-associate Lev Parnas, in December submitted a court motion that included the transcript of the voicemail the former New York City mayor left him in November 2019, Newsweek reported.
“Joe, it’s Rudy Giuliani,” the message starts, according to a transcript the mag said was made public last year.
“I’m calling, uh, to see if we can talk either about or with Lev. I have my lawyer with me, but you can call me back at [REDACTED]. That’s [REDACTED],” he reportedly says, adding: “That’s the soon to be gotten rid of number.”
Bondy told Newsweek that he “can confirm the veracity of the statements that I made in that reply motion,” but declined to comment further on matters
