Was Giuliani acting as Turkey’s undeclared foreign agent? ahvalnews-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/ahvalnews.…
LOL, a big FU to Rudy:

"A spokesperson for Greenberg Traurig said Mangas has not been to Turkey since 2013, nor has he spoken with Giuliani since the latter left the firm in 2018."

Turkey comes up in the conversation when Giuliani asks, "Is Robert around?"

"He's in Turkey," the unidentified man responds.

"The problem is we need some money," Giuliani quickly responded. Continuing after a pause he said, “We need a few hundred thousand.”
"In 2017, ["Robert"] Mangas, Giuliani and their colleague...Levy, were asked to provide affidavits to the court presiding over the case of US v. Reza Zarrab concerning a scheme run by Zarrab, a Turkish Iranian gold trader, to bypass sanctions on Iran w/the help of Turkish banks."
Judge Berman "inquired as to whether rep of Zarrab by Giuliani and...Mukasey, a former USAG, presented disqualifying conflicts of interest given Greenberg Traurig’s designation as a foreign agent of Turkey and the firm’s separate rep of several US banks defrauded by the scheme."
"Giuliani may eventually be indicted for FARA violations related to Ukraine. It should further be questioned whether his political advocacy for Turkey’s interests also violated FARA...the exemption does not cover lobbying presidents to intervene in open criminal cases."
"What is clear is that over the course of 2017 Giuliani advocated for Zarrab’s release and the extradition of Gülen, two priority interests of the Erdoğan administration, despite never registering as a foreign agent of Turkey."
Judge Berman “I am still stunned by the fact that Rudy was hired to be–and he very actively pursued–being the ‘go between’ between...Trump and Turkey’s.. Erdogan in an unprecedented effort to terminate this federal criminal case in the middle of the case”
