Just the News is reporting today that a Washington, D.C., court has suspended the law license of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The article reports:
A District of Columbia court has suspended the law license of former New York City Mayor and President Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, following a similar move by a New York court.
The suspension was announced Wednesday by the D.C. Court of Appeals, which cited the two-page decision last month by the New York court.
“On consideration of a certified copy of an order of the Supreme Court of New York, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department, suspending respondent from the practice of law pending further disciplinary proceedings in that state, it is ORDERED pursuant to D.C. Bar Rule XI, 11(d), that the respondent is suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pending final disposition of this proceeding, effective on the date of entry of this order,” the court order reads.
The suspension (of course) is due to statements Mayor Giuliani made following the 2020 presidential election. The Mayor claimed that there had been widespread fraud that needed to be investigated.
The article also notes:
Giuliani’s New York residence and office were raided in the effort to gather evidence. His lawyers called the New York court decision “unprecedented” and said they believed their client will eventually be reinstated.
If what Mayor Giuliani said was false, why was it necessary to raid his residence and his office? If there was no real evidence as was claimed, what were they looking for?
