Rudy Giuliani tries to stop the government from examining evidence on his iCloud account, but Trump has done nothing to help his lawyer.
Giuliani went to court to question the legality of the search warrants and to prevent federal investigators from reviewing the seized evidence.
CNN's Shimon Prokupecz noted that Trump is doing nothing to help Giuliani in the case:
Everything from Trump's legal team is missing from the files of the Giuliani search warrants. At this point, Trump is not expected to ask the court to step in to claim privileges or ask other questions. At this point, Trump had intervened in the Cohen case.

Trump pretends not to know his own lawyer and leaves Giuliani to take care of himself.
If Trump were still in office, we would have received the standard response pretending not to be close to Giuliani even though he was his lawyer.
Giuliani plans to spend the rest of his life in jail and he only has one card left to give prosecutors the goods on Trump and his family. Rudy Giuliani is not going to jail for Trump, and he will spill the beans and tell them everything if it means saving his own skin.
