D.C. Court Suspends Giuliani’s Law License

'The bar association should give me an award. I defended an unpopular client. I’ve been threatened with death. ... I’ve lost friends over it...'

Former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also served as former president Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, had his law license in Washington, D.C. suspended on Wednesday because he pushed in court allegations that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

The far-left D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals made the decision following “consideration” of a June 24 order from the New York Supreme Court that also suspended Giuliani’s credentials to practice law in the state.

Pending a “final disposition” from the D.C. court, Giuliani will also be barred from being an attorney in the district.

The New York court ruled last month that there was “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers, and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former president Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at election in 2020.”

The appellate division of the court also claimed Giulaini intentionally spread lies about the results of the 2020 election to “improperly bolster” Trump’s “narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client.”

Giuliani defended his actions at the time of the New York court’s ruling.

“The bar association should give me an award,” he said during a radio interview last month.

“I defended an unpopular client. I’ve been threatened with death. I’ve had a good deal of my income taken away. I’ve lost friends over it,” he continued. “This is happening to shut me up. They want Giuliani quiet.”

Trump also defended Giuliani, calling him a “great American patriot.”

“Can you believe that New York wants to strip Rudy Giuliani, a great American Patriot, of his law license because he has been fighting what has already been proven to be a Fraudulent Election?” he said in a statement.
