Federal investigators on Wednesday morning raided the Washington, DC,-area home of lawyer Victoria Toensing, who is a close associate of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a report said.

The search of Toensing’s home came around the same time investigators executed a search warrant at Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and office, the New York Times reported.

Investigators in the Southern District of New York are probing whether Giuliani illegally lobbied on behalf of Ukrainian oligarchs, who were also helping him dig up dirt on former President Trump’s political rivals, according to the Times.

Toensing, a former federal prosecutor, had represented an oligarch under indictment in the US, whose help Giuliani had sought in his mission to find dirt on Trump’s opponents, including President Biden and his son Hunter, the report said.

It’s unclear what the agents recovered at Toensing’s home. She did not immediately respond to request for comment.

An attorney for Giuliani, Robert Costello, told The Post agents seized his electronic devices as they searched his Upper East Side apartment.

Costello blasted the raid in a statement, saying DOJ targeted the former mayor because of “Trump derangement syndrome.”

“It is outrageous that the Trump Derangement Syndrome has gone so far that hatred has driven this unjustified and unethical attack on the United States Attorney and Mayor who did more to reduce crime than virtually any other in American history,” the statement said.

“Mr. Giuliani respects the law, and he can demonstrate that his conduct as a lawyer and a citizen was absolutely legal and ethical.”

A spokesperson for the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York declined to comment on the raid.
