Rudy Giuliani May Be Disbarred: NY State Bar Association Launches Inquiry into Removing Him from Membership

Share

The New York State Bar Association is making a move to oust Rudy Giuliani.

They announced it this morning on their website.

The article reads: “NYSBA has received hundreds of complaints in recent months about Mr. Giuliani and his baseless efforts on behalf of President Trump to cast doubt on the veracity of the 2020 presidential election and, after the votes were cast, to overturn its legitimate results. As widely reported, these efforts included the commencement and prosecution of court actions in multiple states without any evidentiary basis whatsoever. In each and every instance, these actions were appropriately dismissed by the courts in which they were brought.”

It continues:

“NYSBA’s bylaws state that “no person who advocates the overthrow of the government of the United States, or of any state, territory or possession thereof, or of any political subdivision therein, by force or other illegal means, shall be a member of the Association.” Mr. Giuliani’s words quite clearly were intended to encourage Trump supporters unhappy with the election’s outcome to take matters into their own hands. Their subsequent attack on the Capitol was nothing short of an attempted coup, intended to prevent the peaceful transition of power.

“Mr. Giuliani will be provided due process and have an opportunity – should he so choose – to explain and defend his words and actions.

“This decision is historic for NYSBA, and we have not made it lightly. We cannot stand idly by and allow those intent on rending the fabric of our democracy to go unchecked.”

From Giuliani supporting the riots last week in Washington to his crazy appearance in “Borat 2,” not to mention his Four Seasons press conference, this action doesn’t seem unreasonable. Guiliani’s interviews on Fox News and CNN will all undoubtedly be used against him. The story cites one particular line, uttered by Giuliani about the “fake” election during the riots at the Capitol: “If we’re wrong, we will be made fools of, but if we’re right a lot of them will go to jail,” Mr. Giuliani said. “Let’s have trial by combat.”
