There’s a reason that rich white men like Donald Trump get away with even the shadiest of crimes in the U.S. legal system, and most of those reasons involve overpaid lawyers with less than stellar scruples. However, Trump’s latest scheme to defraud the American public was backed by a lawyer with no scruples at all, leading to the suspension of his law license in New York.
SEDITION is defined as conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch, often involving the subversion of a constitution. Today's lunatic rant (his second today) comes awfully close. pic.twitter.com/hVfNCqqWkn

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has sweated his way through several years of representing Trump on every television news show that would have him, has lost his license to practice law thanks to his blatant lies in court about the 2020 presidential election. In response, Trump released an angry statement declaring Giuliani a hero and New York a hotbed of “radical Leftists.”
‘Can you believe that New York wants to strip Rudy Giuliani, a great American Patriot, of his law license because he has been fighting what has already been proven to be a Fraudulent Election? The greatest Mayor in the history of New York City, the Eliot Ness of his generation, one of the greatest crime fighters our Country has ever known, and this is what the Radical Left does to him. All of New York is out of control, crime is at an all-time high – it’s nothing but a Witch Hunt, and they should be ashamed of themselves. TAKE BACK AMERICA!’

For the record, Giuliani is no Eliot Ness. Ness was a public servant who died penniless after pursuing the mob and refusing to take bribes from them to back off. Giuliani was paid thousands of dollars per day, at least some of which was covered by American taxpayers, to carry bribes to Ukraine and lie in court for America’s most corrupt president.
‘A New York state appellate court said there was “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statement 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.”‘

No amount of yelling into microphones at impromptu rallies held in the parking lot of a sex toy store will get Giuliani out of the mess that Donald Trump has created for the man that was once considered a good prospect for the presidency; instead, he’ll be forced to fight it out in courtrooms in an attempt to get his law license reinstated. That is, however, quite a long shot. The New York court who handed down the decision does not appear to be open to allowing anymore of Giuliani’s performances.
‘We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law, pending further proceedings…This country is being torn apart by continued attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and of our current president, Joseph R. Biden.’
You cannot lie in a court of law and get away with it—not even if Trump has you on speed dial.
I petitioned the NY court to suspend Rudy Giuliani’s law license, and his disbarment is well-earned. His lies have caused serious harm to our democracy.
Don’t mess with Pennsylvania.
