Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said that he plans to sue the Justice Department if they don't offer him compensation after what he claims were violations of his privacy and millions of dollars in costs.

"I expect to sue them," Giuliani said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show on Tuesday.

Giuliani claimed his representation of former President Donald Trump opened him up to FBI malfeasance. The lawyer and former mayor's home was raided last year by the FBI amid allegations of improper dealings in Ukraine.

"The minute I represented the president of the United States, they invade my privacy, both as a citizen and as a lawyer, in order to get information on him," Giuliani claimed, referring to his counsel for former President Donald Trump.

"I actually just finished a two hour conversation with a group of my lawyers to talk about how if they don't give me compensation, we're going to sue for it. I mean, they cost me literally millions of dollars."

According to Giuliani, the FBI not only spied on him, but other individuals to whom he provided legal representation.

"They spied on my other clients," the former mayor stated. "They say they didn't, but they had all their documents. Nobody trusts the FBI anymore."

Giuliani said he used to be closely associated with the FBI due to all his work as a lawyer but that the bureau has since lost his trust.

"I was probably the closest person to the FBI that wasn't an FBI agent in the country," said Giuliani. "I was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by them six years earlier during the Obama administration, and I probably brought more cases of a high level than any other United States attorney in history with the FBI."
