Former personal attorney for Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, responded to a New York appeals court decision on Thursday to suspend him from being able to practice law in the state of New York, stating that the decision is a “horribly dishonest opinion,” and a “Democrat decision.”
“This is a Democrat decision by five judges who should be themselves investigated, because they’re destroying fairness,” Giuliani said during an interview on Thursday’s edition of “Greg Kelly Reports.”
“I’m not very happy about this. I love practicing law; it’s my passion. I’ve done it for 50 years. I’ve done it for 50 years without, I think, a single complaint ever. I’ve been involved in some of the most bitter litigation imaginable — never had charges like this — and I’ve had my life threatened any number of times for the cases that I brought that I think really helped my country,” he continued.
An angry and near emotional Giuliani had his words trail off as he spoke to host Greg Kelly live in the studio Thursday night.
“And I don’t appreciate these … I mean, it’s,” the former New York City mayor said. “I don’t know exactly what I can’t say and what I can 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.
Giuliani called it a political search for a crime and “a double standard.”
“There’s no doubt if I was representing Hillary Clinton, I’d be their hero,” Giuliani went on to say. “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.”
“They want this mouth shut,” he continued.
In suspending Giuliani’s law license in New York, the court wrote: “The seriousness of respondent’s uncontroverted misconduct cannot be overstated. This country is being torn apart by continued attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and of our current president, Joseph R. Biden.”
Giuliani fired back by saying, “The only reason they’re not controverted is they didn’t let me controvert them. I’ve never had a hearing. I offered them the affidavits.”
The former attorney for the president also went on to discuss how two attorneys that allegedly fire-bombed a police cruiser are still allowed to practice law.
“Did anybody torch anything as a result of anything I said? No,” he added. “And, the statements they’re talking about, supposedly create a danger. Where’s the danger? Jan. 6 is over by the time we’re talking about they’re saying those statements cause danger. Where? Who did what? Who blew up a car?”
“What crime are they investigating?” Giuliani asked. “They’re looking for a crime. We investigate allegations of crimes. We don’t go search a man’s life to invent or find crimes. That’s what they’re doing to [Trump], and that’s what the Southern District is doing to me,” he concluded.
