The New York State Bar Association may expel Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for ‘provoking a mob’ to storm the US Capitol.
To be clear, the New York State Bar Association cannot disbar Rudy Giuliani, however if they expel him from its membership it would prevent Rudy from representing President Trump in pending litigation or an impeachment trial.
“This decision is historic for NYSBA, and we have not made it lightly. We cannot stand idly by and allow those intent on rending the fabric of our democracy to go unchecked,” NYSBA said in a statement.
“NYSBA has received hundreds of complaints in recent months about Mr. Giuliani and his baseless efforts on behalf of President Trump to cast doubt on the veracity of the 2020 presidential election and, after the votes were cast, to overturn its legitimate results. As widely reported, these efforts included the commencement and prosecution of court actions in multiple states without any evidentiary basis
