Rudy Giuliani No Longer Able to Practice Law?
It's no secret that the aftermath of the 2020 election was an interesting time in America's history. But, of course, this is in regards to the winner of the presidential election (President Joe Biden) and former President Trump's inability to accept his defeat. Starting on election night, former President Trump declared that he was the winner and that certain states should stop/keep counting votes. However, it's safe to say that his efforts did not work, and states not only continued to count votes but soon certified the electoral win for President Joe Biden.
Legal Fight Begins
This, of course, was not the end for President Trump as he began to continue his false statements that the election was stolen from him. In order to have the election overturned, Trump began to file lawsuits within states he lost. To lead his legal team, Trump turned to former New York City mayor and attorney Rudy Giuliani. The former mayor would not only be the head of his legal team but Trump's personal attorney. This meant that whatever claim Trump was making, Rudy Giuliani had to accept it and begin finding evidence to back up his claims. This, of course, did not go well when it was time to present evidence in front of an actual judge.
Throughout the months of November and December, former President Trump held rallies and appeared on various news networks claiming that once the courts heard the evidence, the election results would be overturned. At the head of those legal battles was his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. However, the court hearings did not go as plan. Whenever Rudy Giuliani was asked to present evidence of things such as voter fraud, it seemed that the former mayor was simply finding ways to go around the request for evidence by stating that investigations were ongoing or that they could not be proven at that exact moment.
Rudy Giuliani Suspended from Practicing Law
It seemed that after a while, judges around the nation began to grow tired of Rudy Giuliani's half-truths and overall unpreparedness during the trials. This led to a group of prominent attorneys calling for the suspension of Rudy Giuliani's law license in New York. Finally, on June June 24, 2021, the New York judiciary agreed that Rudy Giuliani was abusing his license by constantly filing lawsuits that had no merit, and thus he was suspended from practicing law within the state. In addition, a New York appellate court placed out a statement about the situation, saying that Rudy Giuliani's involvement with former President Donald Trump and the Trump campaign's false narrative of the 2020 presidential election was enough to come to the conclusion and decision that they did. The statement concluded by saying that the former mayor's constant misinformation and behavior threaten the public's interest and thus warrant the suspension of his law license.
Understandably, Rudy Giuliani, along with this legal team, was not happy about the decision made by the New York State judiciary. An attorney for Rudy Giuliani came out on Twitter saying that the whole matter was very disappointed and that once all the evidence was heard, the former mayor's license would be reinstated and his name cleared. Former President Trump also made his voice heard when he heard about the decision. Trump stated that Rudy Giuliani was a "great American patriot" and the greatest mayor that New York has ever had and that this was the type of thing that the radical left did to people.
The Road to Suspension
As stated above, suspending Rudy Giuliani's law license in New York was not because of one or two things but rather a variety of claims and lack of evidence that would ultimately lead to an investigation being opened on the former mayor. For example, one of the pieces used to approve his suspension was his constant claim that he had “hundreds of witnesses, experts, and investigative reports” ready to present to the courts. However, when asked about these pieces of evidence, no evidence was presented, and the statements from the witnesses that Giuliani did bring to court were often quickly discredited.
