Washington Post: Giuliani disregarded U.S. intel fears that he was being manipulated by Russians05:58
Rudy Giuliani was given a so-called “defensive“ briefing by the FBI in 2019 in which agents warned him he was being targeted by a Russian intelligence influence operation as he sought to gather opposition research on the Biden family, according to a source familiar with the matter. CORRECTION: A version of this video included incorrect reporting that Rudolph Giuliani had received a defensive briefing from the FBI in 2019 warning him that he was being targeted by a Russian influence operation. The report was based on a source familiar with the matter, but a second source now says the briefing was only prepared for Giuliani and not delivered to him, in part over concerns it might complicate the criminal investigation of Giuliani. As a result, this video has been expired from playback.
