Giuliani disbarred

Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, has been officially disbarred from New York. The state Supreme Court decided on Tuesday, citing Giuliani’s involvement in efforts to interfere with the 2020 presidential election on Trump’s behalf. The court’s ruling was effective immediately, marking a significant downfall for Giuliani, who was once a prominent lawyer and public official.

The decision comes as Giuliani faces considerable fallout for his actions, including bankruptcy due to $150 million in debt from defamation suits and multiple other lawsuits and criminal charges. The court strongly condemned Giuliani’s misconduct, stating, “The seriousness of Giuliani’s misconduct cannot be overstated. He flagrantly misused his prominent position as the personal attorney for former President Trump and his campaign, through which he repeatedly and intentionally made false statements, some of which were perjurious, to federal court, state lawmakers, the public, the Attorney Grievance Committee, and this Court concerning the 2020 Presidential election.

Giuliani’s disbarment explained

He baselessly attacked and undermined the integrity of this country’s electoral process.”

The ruling highlighted Giuliani’s deliberate violation of fundamental legal tenets and his contribution to national strife following the 2020 election. The court specifically mentioned Giuliani’s false claims about illegal voting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his efforts to overturn election results in several battleground states.

Giuliani responded to the ruling on X (formerly Twitter), expressing no surprise and condemning the court’s decision as corrupt. His spokesman, Ted Goodman, criticized the disbarment, promising to appeal the decision and calling the legal community to speak out against the ruling. Giuliani played a crucial role in Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election and has been charged in Georgia with a RICO violation and several other felonies related to efforts to submit false electors and make false statements to Georgia lawmakers.
