Washington D.C., has officially joined in with New York state to suspend former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani from being able to practice law in the area.
The ruling was handed down from the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on Wednesday and goes on to cite the suspension of Giuliani’s law license in New York, stating the suspension will be in place until the issues in New York are settled.
Trump derided the suspension of his lawyer as a continuation of the “witch hunt” that he says dogged his entire administration. Giuliani considered the “horribly dishonest opinion” an effort to silence him on defending his client or talking about 2020 presidential election fraud.
“This is a Democrat decision by five judges who should be themselves investigated, because they’re destroying fairness,” Giuliani said during a conversation on Newsmax‘s “Greg Kelly Reports” on the night of New York’s June 24 court ruling.
“I don’t know exactly what I can’t say and what I can say,” Giuliani went on to say.
“All I can tell you is America is not America any longer. We do not live in a free state. We live in a state that’s controlled by the Democratic Party, by [New York Gov. Andrew] Cuomo, [New York City Mayor Bill] de Blasio, and the Democrats,” he continued.
Legal expert Alan Dershowitz opined that the suspension of Giuliani’s law license will not stick because Giuliani was denied due process.
“I taught legal ethics for 35 years at Harvard; I’ve never seen a case like this,” Dershowitz said during an interview with Newsmax’s “Saturday Report” after the New York move.
Giuliani himself referred to it as a political search for a crime and a “double standard” of American justice.
“There’s no doubt if I was representing Hillary Clinton, I’d be their hero,” Giuliani said during his chat with Kelly. “I represented my client so effectively that they’re trying to get me to shut up, because they know what’s going to happen. They know what’s going to happen in Arizona, and they know what’s going to happen in Georgia.”
“And they want this mouth shut,” Giuliani stated.
Giuliani then noted that the justice system in America needs to be investigating criminal allegations instead of targeting someone and searching for a crime to prosecute them for.
