Rudy Lost His Law License

Rudy Lost His Law License

“Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor, has been suspended from practicing law in New York state for spreading lies about the election as a lawyer for former president Donald Trump.

In an order suspending Giuliani on Thursday, the appellate division of the New York Supreme Court that covers Manhattan wrote that it found ‘uncontroverted evidence’ that Giuliani ‘communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large’ to suggest that ‘victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client.’”

    This makes me feel very sad. Rudy Giuliani was a good mayor of New York City, especially during 911. He was an accomplished attorney as well, for many years prior.

    Giuliani used the RICO Act in the mid 1980s to convict and imprison the heads of the five mafia families of New York. Giuliani did more to wipe out the infrastructure of organized crime than anyone else since 1943 in Chicago. Now his law license is suspended. I hope he can find his way back, and is not totally disbarred. He is not a young man. There isn’t much time.

    “America’s Mayor” is an illusion. Giuliani wandered around the smoldering site of 9/11 instead of directing efforts from the city’s Emergency Mangement Command Center because, ignoring professional advice, he had located that Center on the 23rd floor of the World Trade Center, target of a previous terrorist attack in 1993.

    9/11 first responders were unable to talk to each other because Giuliani’s political cronies were awarded a no-bid contract for their portable radios. Rudy Giuliani has always been a grifter.

    As to “crime busting,” hundreds of FBI agents, city police, and state and Federal prosecutors spent 20 years working on the 5 Families cases before it was ready for US Attorney Rudy and several more qualified AUSAs, including Michael Chertoff. It is only fitting that FBI Agents recently removed evidence from Giuliani’s apartment.

    Rudy Giuliani has long been a fraud, he’s just lost his knack for successful self-promotion and been caught. His law license should be permanently revoked. Probably his driver’s license and fishing license, too.
