Giuliani’s Troubles Turn Ginormous as DC Follows New York’s Lead


Rudy Giuliani is having a rough few weeks, that’s for sure, and it seems as though the sorrow is about to start snowballing for the former New York City Mayor.

Giuliani is on the wrong end of Trump world at the moment, in a spot where he is not only being hunted by the entire left side of the American political spectrum, but has also found himself on the outs with Trump camp, after daring to ask to be paid for his electoral work.

Now, just after the State of New York decided to suspend Giuliani’s law license, it looks as though DC is following suit.

A local appeals court in Washington, D.C., suspended Rudy Giuliani’s authority to practice law in the city Wednesday.

A New York appellate court suspended Giuliani’s law license last month, saying he made “demonstrably false and misleading” statements about last year’s election while serving as former President Donald Trump’s attorney.

The move was reciprocal, in a way.

The action from the D.C. appellate court is required under the city’s bar rules whenever a lawyer faces disciplinary action in another jurisdiction.

In a 33-page decision, the New York court panel wrote that “there is 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.”

The move comes as Giuliani is staring down a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems that believes the former NYC Mayor owes the company over $1 billion in damages.
