The Guardian reports:
Rudy Giuliani is suspended from practicing law in New York state following disciplinary proceedings over his misleading statements to courts and the public following the 2020 US presidential election.
The New York supreme court issued its decision on Thursday, saying that it had found “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani made “demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large”, on behalf of his client, then-president Donald Trump, and created a “narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client”.
So sad. Rudy used to be one of my heroes. He used to be a great lawyer. He was an Associate US Attorney General to Ronald Reagan and the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York (the most powerful legal district in the US). He prosecuted the mafia and oversaw a huge drop in crime in New York, turning it from one of the most dangerous to one of the safest cities in the US. He was a great Mayor of New York.
But now he has become pitiful.
The decision of the New York Supreme Court is worth reading. They give numerous examples of the lies he told, and how there wasn’t even a sherrick of evidence for them.
