A Washington, D.C. Court of Appeals committee that oversees the conduct of lawyers recommended Friday that Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and personal attorney for former President Donald Trump, be disabled.
The determination that Giuliani should not be allowed to practice law in the nation’s capital is founded on Giuliani’s attempts to block the 2020 presidential election results favorable to Joe Biden in Pennsylvania and his handling of litigation challenging the 2020 presidential election results for alleged voter fraud, conducted on behalf of the then-president Trump.
Giuliani “claimed massive voter fraud but had no proof,” the panel of three lawyers wrote in a report released Friday, about errors and unsubstantiated claims made by Giuliani in a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania that argued he sought to quash the vote. defeat of the then Republican president against the Democrat elect for the presidency Joe Biden.
Between Election Day and the January 6, 2021 riots at the US Capitol, Giuliani and other Trump lawyers repeatedly pressed allegations of voter fraud which were almost uniformly rejected by federal and state courts.
Giuliani is the third lawyer who could lose his ability to practice law because of what he did for Trump: John Eastman faces disbarment in California and Lin Wood surrendered his license in Georgia this week, according to CBS News.
“Mr. Giuliani’s effort to undermine the integrity of the 2020 presidential election helped destabilize our democracy,” wrote the three attorneys on the panel, Robert C. Bernius, Carolyn Haynesworth-Murrell and Jay A. Brozost.
The panel’s report will now go to the DC Court of Appeals for a final decision.
Giuliani’s New York law license was suspended in June 2021 for false statements he made while attempting to pursue repeatedly discredited voter fraud allegations made by Trump.
