RUDY Giuliani garnered international attention as the personal lawyer of former President Donald Trump.
However, Giuliani’s time as Trump’s personal attorney got him barred from practicing law in New York State.
Why was Rudy Giuliani banned from practicing law in New York?
On Thursday, June 24, the New York courts announced Giuliani was barred from practicing law in New York over “false statements to courts and public” while he was Trump‘s lawyer.
The former Big Apple mayor’s suspension comes just months after his Upper East Side house and office were raided by the FBI.
The decision was released by the New York courts in a hefty statement, confirming that “there is uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani issued false statements following the results of the 2020 presidential election.
They added that the misinformation was issued “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.”
“These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client.”
