A New York court has suspended Trump confidant Rudy Giuliani’s Bar Association license over his role after the 2020 US presidential election. The newspaper said Thursday that Giuliani was “in the capacity of former President Donald J. Trump’s attorney and Trump campaign team in connection with Trump’s failed 2020 re-election bid.” He made manifestly false and misleading statements to the courts, representatives and the public.” .
The behavior of the 77-year-old puts the public interest at risk, so cancellation is justified until the pending proceedings are finally completed. The suspension of the license to practice relates to Giuliani’s work in the State of New York.
Trump appointed Giuliani in mid-November to lead legal efforts against the outcome of the presidential election and the victory of Democrat Joe Biden. The attorney and former New York mayor has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, that Trump was denied victory over Biden as a result of a vote theft organized by the Democratic Party. Several lawsuits filed by Trump’s lawyers in various states have failed due to a lack of evidence.
On Thursday, a New York court also came to the conclusion that Giuliani’s comments about election fraud “raised” tensions in the United States prior to the January 6 storming of the Capitol. “The gravity of uncontested misconduct cannot be overstated,” she said. The United States will be “ripped apart” by continued attacks on the legitimacy of the elections and on President Biden.
Giuliani is a loyal companion of Trump, but he got him into trouble several times. He was a central figure in the Ukraine affair that led to Trump’s impeachment proceedings. Giuliani also actively sought to get Ukraine to investigate Biden, Trump’s eventual victorious rival.
Trump himself spoke on Thursday and condemned the decision. Giuliani “A great American patriot, New York is ‘out of control’.” The decision against his attorney is a ‘witch hunt’.
