Rudy Giuliani’s Law License Suspended in D.C.

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals on Wednesday suspended former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in D.C. pending a disciplinary matter in New York.

The decision to suspend Giuliani in the District is yet another blow to the former mayor of New York, where his law license was also suspended. An appellate court in that city said in its ruling that there was “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large.”

The statements from the New York court referred to Giuliani’s efforts to overturn President Donald Trump’s loss in his 2020 reelection bid.

“The seriousness of respondent’s uncontroverted misconduct cannot be overstated,” the court said in the 33-page decision. “This country is being torn apart by continued attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and of our current president, Joseph R. Biden. The hallmark of our democracy is predicated on free and fair elections. False statements intended to foment a loss of confidence in our elections and resulting loss of confidence in government generally damage the proper functioning of a free society.”

The D.C. Court of Appeals, per city law, is required to suspend a lawyer facing disciplinary action in another jurisdiction.

Twenty years ago, Giuliani was the face of America’s resolve after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks that devastated the nation and began a war in Afghanistan that’s finally winding down with American troops pulling out this year.

Now, the man once dubbed “America’s mayor” is at the center of an investigation that suggests he has betrayed the very country that held him in high regard two decades ago.

Federal agents executed a warrant in April to search Giuliani’s New York home. While authorities declined to comment, it is believed that the warrants were served to dig up more information on the former New York mayor’s alleged engagement in foreign lobbying for officials in Ukraine.

It is also widely held that the investigation also targets Giuliani’s actions as the attorney for Trump.

Giuliani, who is deeply entrenched in the so-called MAGA movement, faces other legal exposure for his role in the 2020 election aftermath.

The election technology company Dominion sued Giuliani in January for defamation “after he spread baseless conspiracy theories about election fraud on his podcast and during TV appearances,” CNN reported.

In the lawsuit, the company focused on how Giuliani continued to claim without evidence that Dominion aided election fraud even after he received a cease-and-desist letter.
