Rudy Giuliani Suspended from Practicing Law in Washington D.C.

A Washington D.C. court has suspended the law license for Rudy Giuliani, an attorney of former President Trump, just weeks after New York took similar actions against him. According to the District of Columbia appeals court, Giuliani will remain suspended in the capital until further notice of his pending case in New York. 

The suspension came after Giuliani attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Giuliani played a big part in Trump’s campaign to undo President Biden’s victory back in November, and he also made several baseless claims of the election being “stolen.”

The New York appellate court said 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 reelection in 2020.”

However, the former New York City Mayor argued that his comments were not a threat to the public, and said, “I made all those statements — not a single one of them led to a protest, a riot, an incident, anything. Those statements do not have the impact of creating danger.”

Giuliani has not made a public statement about his suspension in Washington D.C., but he did retweet a post on Twitter that criticizes his temporary suspension as “just another gross miscarriage of Justice.”
