Rudy Giuliani Disbarred in New York for Efforts to Subvert 2020 Election

Rudy Giuliani has lost his license to practice law in New York due to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. The state appeals court made this decision in a unanimous and unsigned opinion.

The court stated, “The seriousness of Giuliani’s misconduct cannot be overstated.” They emphasized that Giuliani “flagrantly misused his prominent position as the personal attorney for former President Trump and his campaign.”

The judges found that Giuliani “repeatedly and intentionally made false statements,” including some that were perjurious. These statements misled the federal court, state lawmakers, the public, and even the court itself about the 2020 Presidential election. According to the court, Giuliani’s actions “baselessly attacked and undermined the integrity of this country’s electoral process.”

The panel reviewed a long list of Giuliani’s efforts to cast doubt on the election results, finding that they were based on flimsy or misleading evidence. Giuliani claimed ballots were smuggled from Long Island to Pennsylvania, voters were bused from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, thousands of dead people cast ballots, and thousands of felons voted in Georgia. He also claimed surveillance footage in Atlanta showed election workers committing fraud. The judges concluded that Giuliani had misrepresented evidence for all these claims.

Giuliani, who once gained fame as a tough prosecutor and later as the mayor of New York City after the 9/11 attacks, saw his reputation severely damaged. More recently, Giuliani became known for defending Trump and leading efforts to challenge the 2020 election results. His actions laid the groundwork for Trump’s campaign to pressure election officials to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in key swing states.

Special counsel Jack Smith identified Giuliani as one of Trump’s co-conspirators in a national attempt to subvert the 2020 election. Giuliani faces disbarment proceedings in Washington, D.C., where he is currently suspended from practicing law pending a final decision by the D.C. Court of Appeals.

Giuliani plans to fight the disbarment ruling. His spokesperson, Ted Goodman, said, “We will be appealing this objectively flawed decision in hopes that the appellate process will restore integrity into our system of justice.”

The judges from the state appeals court, known as the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, found that Giuliani’s claims about the 2020 election were increasingly desperate. They concluded that Giuliani had no solid evidence for his allegations.

In addition to losing his law license, Giuliani faces financial troubles. Two Atlanta election workers, whom Giuliani accused of fraud, won a $148 million defamation judgment against him last year. Following this judgment, Giuliani filed for bankruptcy as his finances came under intense scrutiny.
