    Disciplinary attorney Hamilton “Phil” Fox filed a complaint against Rudy Giuliani after a local bar association panel reached a preliminary conclusion that he likely engaged in misconduct in pressing the unsuccessful legal challenge of donald trump to President Joe Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania in 2020.

    According to Bloomberg, “Phil” argued that the most severe penalty Giuliani could face is losing his license as a lawyer in Washington.because his conduct in Pennsylvania was part of a larger effort to sabotage the legitimacy of an election.

    The DC office of the disciplinary board accused Giuliani of violating the rules of practice of attorneys in their handling of the litigation, which involved asking the Pennsylvania judge to invalidate large numbers of votes cast statewide or, alternatively, order a new election

    “It was fundamental damage to the fabric of the country that may well be irreparable. Any attorney who engages in this type of misconduct, damaging the country as he has, should at least realize that his attorney’s license is at risk,” Fox said.

    He also argued that during a hearing held last week, Giuliani “he used his law license as a weapon” to try to undermine the Constitution of the United States.

    Until now the committee’s decision is tentative, but not final, So it could turn around, but it’s a big initial setback for the former New York City mayor in his defense against a legal ethics complaint that carries potential discipline ranging from a warning to the loss of his license.
