“He gave two to friends of his in case he was killed,” Giuliani said, as the interviewer sniggered. “Don’t laugh. The presidency is at stake.
“We have some very dangerous people involved. I’ve been in law enforcement long enough to know you don’t laugh at that. The reality is, he kept four copies and gave two to friends in case he was killed.”
Giuliani said he would be releasing more data from Hunter’s hard drive with just two weeks to go until the presidential election.

The FBI are currently investigating whether the email leak is linked to a foreign influence operation.
“Rudy is drunk all the time, which is a big problem and that’s what makes him susceptible because his faculties are gone,” Cohen told MSNBC’s The Beat. “He behaves crazy.”
“I’ve seen him drink to the point like he’s a high school drunk,” he continued.
“It makes him susceptible. He takes the information that he gets and provides it to the president.
“Rudy used to be considered … a real litigator and he was considered to be America’s Mayor — he’s now really just a joke. And he takes it right back to Trump and Trump listens to it.”

Yet speaking with the Daily Caller on Saturday, Giuliani insisted that the information came from MacIsaac, who gave the device to the feds, while a copy of the hard drive went to his attorney Robert Costello.
MacIsaac told the Daily Beast the FBI “probably knew I had a copy because I was pretty vocal about not wanting to get murdered.”
When asked if he believed Joe Biden would “put your life in danger,” MacIsaac replied: “people that work for him, sure.”
But Giuliani refused to release the entire hard drive for the media to inspect – and Cohen, Trump’s lawyer from 2006 to 2018, Cohen claimed Giuliani was a Kremlin “tool.”

Giuliani made several trips to Ukraine trying to get dirt on the Biden family – which ultimately led to the Trump impeachment furore.
He pushed the debunked claim that it was Ukraine who interfered in the 2016 election, rather than Russia.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said the former Vice President “carried out official US policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing.”
“Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath,” Yates said in a statement.

One of Giuliani’s Ukrainian contacts is Andrii Derkach, a parliamentarian and “active Russian agent for over a decade,” per a Treasury Department sanction announcement last month.
Derkach leaked heavily edited calls former Vice President Biden had with Ukraine’s then-leader, which Trump promoted on Twitter, and met with Giuliani in Kyiv.
Meanwhile, Cohen was imprisoned for arranging payments to silence women who claimed to have had affairs with the president.

He also said he violated campaign finance laws at the direction of Trump “for the principal purpose of influencing” the 2016 election.
In November 2018, Cohen entered a second guilty plea for lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
