Rudy Giuliani’s law license has been suspended.
In a ruling handed down by the New York State Supreme Court Thursday, the state’s Attorney Grievance Committee successfully moved to have the former New York mayor’s license suspended. Specifically, Giuliani’s actions related to his defense of former President Donald Trump were to blame, according to the court.
“We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020,” the court found. “These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client. We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”
Among the violations the court cited was Giuliani’s repeated false claim of voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
From the court ruling:
Respondent repeatedly stated that in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania more absentee ballots came in during the election than were sent out before the election. The factual “proof” he claimed supported his conclusion was that although Pennsylvania sent out only 1,823,148 absentee ballots before the election, 2,589,242 million absentee ballots were then counted in the election. This factual statement regarding the number of ballots mailed out before the election was simply untrue. The true facts are that 3.08 million absentee ballots were mailed out before the general election, which more than accounted for the over 2.5 million mail-in ballots that were actually tallied. Notwithstanding the true facts, respondent repeatedly advanced false statements that there were 600,000 to 700,000 fabricated mail-in ballots, which were never sent to voters in advance of the election.
The court noted six instances in which Giuliani repeated this claim, including on his radio show, Steve Bannon’s podcast, and in a meeting before before Michigan’s House Oversight committee.
This story is breaking.
They are using rude abuse of power against him. Wait till the proof comes out. And he will win in court affidavits are evidence and that’s it.
These people are desperate.
You mean the state of New York is actually petty enough to go after any and all Trump associates?
Noooo. Can’t be true, can it?
There were 3.something million sent out without request. I believe he was quoting a figure for those which were requested. Of course that is not made known, blown up into a fabrication, and blustered about as evidence to support the suspension.
I said we were slipping below the waves, we have been sunk as a republic.
When professional organizations are politicized, they should be jettisoned. Sadly, most of our professional organizations are neck-deep in politics.
Surely the most devastating blow to a man’s income earning potential and prestige since Bill Clinton’s law license got pulled.
Yes, and especially Vance who is so obsessed with anything and anybody associated with Trump.
There were 595,538 votes by mail for Trump, 1,995,691 for Biden and 53,318 for Jorgensen.
Allegedly the 1.8million number was primary ballots sent out.
It’s New York. Buffalo just elected its first DSA mayor. Enjoy the decline!
“...Pennsylvania sent out only 1,823,148 absentee ballots before the election, 2,589,242 million absentee ballots were then counted in the election.”
Many, many thousands of blanks were copied on machines with different paper, watermarks and unreadable names/signatures. It’ll come out, but not until all the left stalling is halted by an upper court. PA gov’t is well-corrupted, and I live here.
To every criminal defense attorney who has ever stated, “The evidence will show that (insert client’s name) is innocent” your law license is in jeopardy*
*only if you are representing the most reprehensible client, that being a conservative.
The truth will set you free...unless it’s about RATs.
He should appeal.
By law, and in law, there is a big difference between a “false statement” and a “knowingly false statement”.
If the later developed “facts” were different than the “facts” that had been presented to Giuliani, which were the “facts” as Giuliani knew them, from the sources he had been given them, then as a lawyer he WAS NOT knowingly making a false statement - he was not making a statement he knew to be untrue.
Giuliani should appeal.
What is going on is what the Dims have been doing for years - using corrupt and biased DAs and courts to legally harass their opponents on charges with which “a ham sandwich could be convicted” if hounded by the “right” DA and with the “right” judge.
PA was in fact absolutely disgusting in extending the election deadlines and dates and subsequently totally mailing out as many ballots as possible to overwhelm the counting and perpetuate the stop and steal. DIRTY votes were counted with genuine. I saw countless mobile ballot boxes and mobile ballot vans especially in Philthy. Fvking scumbag Wolf and the POS AG along with a good portion of the PAGOP had a mission to destroy Trump in PA. I have no idea of Rudy’s information but EVERYBODY with a brain knows full well PA was STOLEN as were the other states.
