New York Judges Disbar Rudy Giuliani for ‘False Statements’ About Election Fraud, But Don’t Consider the Evidence

A panel of five New York appeals court judges this week unanimously disbarred former President Donald Trump’s former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, over statements he made about election illegalities in the 2020 presidential election.

The opinion from the Supreme Court of the State of New York Appellate Division, First Judicial Department relied on ethics rules used to target conservative attorneys: “engag[ing] in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation,” “engag[ing] in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice,” and “engag[ing] in any other conduct that adversely reflects on the lawyer’s fitness as a lawyer.”

Giuliani, whose law license was previously suspended indefinitely in June 2021 for the same reason, reacted to the disbarment on X.

He said, “We have the evidence and the courts still haven’t heard our case, despite what the fake news media says” and another post that day said, “The bar association is corrupt.”

“The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election was stolen,” he added. “They used existing methods of cheating & took advantage of new mail-in voting laws. They amplified lies about one of the candidates & censored one side of the partisan political aisle. They’ll do anything to maintain control.”
