Rudy Giuliani’s Law License Suspended in Clear Act of Political Retaliation Over 2020 Election Claims

    Rudy Giuliani was at the forefront of the Trump legal team’s allegations that widespraud fraud occurred in the 2020 elections. It was his job to put forth the strongest arguments that he could muster on behalf of his client. Many of the claims were not adjudicated on an evidentiary basis, but were merely dismissed for purported lack of standing.

    The political nature of a contested national election is going to bring out the sharpest claims about alleged fraud. That is not stopping the State of New York from now suspending Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in the state.

    “Rudy Giuliani, the former personal lawyer for former President Donald Trump, has been suspended from practicing law in New York state,” CNN reported.

    “In a ruling released Thursday following disciplinary proceedings, a New York appellate court concluded that ‘there is 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 reelection in 2020’,” the court notes while using politically charged language.

    A report from Jenny Goldsberry at Fox News contributor Sara Carter’s site notes the purported violations.

    “According to the ruling, Giuliani violated New York’s ‘Rules of Professional Conduct’ when he “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public,” the report states.

    “These false statements were made to improperly bolster (Giuliani’s) narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the court wrote. “We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”

    It is important to appreciate the full context of this vindictive move by New York State to ostensibly punish a political adversary of the Democratic Party. After all the claims about Trump-Russia collusion alleging ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ brought forth by lawyers on network television, in addition to the fraudulent claims used as ‘evidence’ to support FISA surveillance of the Trump campaign, only one FBI lawyer was sanctioned: Kevin Clinesmith. He was given no jail time for fabricating evidence and committing a felony.

    America’s two-tiered justice system is so blatant that the Democratic Party can hijack the courts to implement ‘mob justice’ against its political adversaries. Meanwhile, the party’s cronies continue to get off scot-free with no justice from ‘Special Counsel’ John Durham in sight. The left is making a mockery of justice in this country, and Rudy Giuliani, regardless of your personal opinion of him, is the latest victim.
