Washington The Washington court suspended the law license of Rudy Giuliani, counsel for former President Donald Trump, just weeks after New York City also took action against him.
Giuliani’s law license will remain on hold in the nation’s capital pending a resolution of his New York case, according to the DC Court of Appeals.
The suspension by a New York court two weeks ago and now a Washington court stems from Giuliani’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.
It was part of a major campaign effort by Trump to undo President Joe Biden’s victory in November. The former New York mayor has repeatedly and baselessly claimed that the 2020 election was stolen.
In a 33-page decision released last month, a New York state appeals court said there was “undisputed evidence” that Giuliani “disclosed patently false and misleading statements to the courts, to lawmakers and the general public in his capacity as advocate “for Trump and his campaign” in connection with Trump’s failure for re-election in 2020 “.
Giuliani has not made any public statement regarding the suspension of his license by the DC court, but he retweeted a post on Twitter criticizing the temporary suspension as “just another serious miscarriage of justice”.
