Giuliani Suffers Another Loss

Rudy Giuliani

( – The vicious leftist crackdown on Rudy Giuliani for being a Donald Trump ally has dealt him a new blow as America’s mayor has been officially disbarred in New York.

On Tuesday, the appellate division of the New York Supreme Court approved a motion to immediately prohibit Giuliani from practicing law within the state.

The court charged that Giuliani endeavored to undermine the results of the 2020 election while serving as Trump’s legal counsel, National Review reports.

The court order detailed that Giuliani “flagrantly misused his prominent position as the personal attorney for former President Trump and his campaign, through which respondent repeatedly and intentionally made false statements, some of which were perjurious, to the federal court, state lawmakers, the public, the [Attorney Grievance Committee], and this Court concerning the 2020 Presidential election, in which he baselessly attacked and undermined the integrity of this country’s electoral process.”

Giuliani propagated claims that ballots were illicitly transported across state borders, and alleged that votes were cast in the names of deceased or underage individuals, and that many felons or non-U.S. citizens also voted unlawfully.

These assertions were part of the rationale for his disbarment, with specific reference to statements about the electoral processes in Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.

In June 2021, Giuliani’s license to practice law was temporarily suspended in New York as the court deliberated further disciplinary measures.

The court had previously suspended him due to his claims that the 2020 election was fraudulently taken from Trump, which it argued posed a threat to the public interest, democratic principles, and the integrity of the legal profession.

“In so doing, respondent not only deliberately violated some of the most fundamental tenets of the legal profession, but he also actively contributed to the national strife that has followed the 2020 Presidential election, for which he is entirely unrepentant,” the court’s order noted.

Celebrated as “America’s Mayor” following the 9/11 attacks, the 80-year-old was originally admitted to the New York bar in 1969.

Giuliani is also facing disciplinary actions in Washington, D.C., where a bar disciplinary committee last year recommended his disbarment.

Additionally, he is contending with two criminal indictments in Arizona and Georgia for purported interference in the 2020 election, and a $148 million defamation judgment for making false statements about two former Georgia poll workers. Following this judgment in December, he filed for bankruptcy.
