New York Bar Association to Expel Giuliani

The New York State Bar Association is launching an inquiry into expelling Rudy Giuliani from its membership over his role in inciting the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week.

The Bar Association said Monday it has received hundreds of complaints about Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and the former mayor of New York City. Its president, Scott Karson, “has launched an inquiry pursuant to the Association’s bylaws to determine whether Mr. Giuliani should be removed from the membership rolls of the Association,” the group said in a statement.

The Bar Association cites Giuliani’s speech to a group of thousands of Trump supporters outside the White House before they headed for the Capitol, where he repeated baseless claims that election fraud is to blame for Trump’s loss.

“If we’re wrong, we will be made fools of, but if we’re right a lot of them will go to jail,” Giuliani, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, said. “Let’s have trial by combat.”

The bylaws of the Bar Association prevent membership for anyone who advocates the overthrow of the United States government or of any state or locality by force or illegal means. Expulsion from the association would not affect Giuliani’s ability to practice law in the state.

“Mr. Giuliani’s words quite clearly were intended to encourage Trump supporters unhappy with the election’s outcome to take matters into their own hands,” the association said in its statement. “Their subsequent attack on the Capitol was nothing short of an attempted coup, intended to prevent the peaceful transition of power.”

As part of the inquiry, Giuliani will have the opportunity to explain his actions if he chooses. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“This decision is historic for NYSBA, and we have not made it lightly,” the group said. “We cannot stand idly by and allow those intent on rending the fabric of our democracy to go unchecked.”

While only a court can actually disbar Giuliani, it has been more than a century since the group last expelled a lawyer who had not already been disbarred: It last happened in 1904, the association estimates. It set up its current bylaws outlining the process for removing a member in the 1970s and has only used them for lawyers already stripped of their license.

State Sen. Brad Hoylman said he will file a formal complaint with the Appellate Division of the state court system asking them to revoke Giuliani’s law license.

Giuliani’s “participation in a scheme to unlawfully overturn the results of a free and fair election and his complicity in inflaming a violent coup attempt on our seat of federal government” adds up to “rampant and egregious violations” of the rules of professional conduct governing attorneys in the state, Hoylman (D-Manhattan) said Monday.

“There can be no room in the profession for those who seek to undermine and undo the rule of law,” he said. “I’ll do the same for any other attorney licensed in New York who was found to have participated in last week’s assault on our democracy. There must be consequences for seditious acts.”

  1. Ridiculous! Prove that he incited a mob at the Capitol! And any American has the right to question an election if voter fraud is suspected. Say all you want there is no fraud but check the cemeteries!

  2. Wow communism at its worst. This could blow up on them. If they think the capital protest was bad, they are now asking for a real revolution to happen. If AOC was scared then, she really needs to run scared now. Along with her comrades omar and pelosi the puke.

  3. You are as absurd as CNN and other MSM. Your headline reads as if it is done, that he is already disbarred. NO, they are looking into disbarring Giuliani, asses that they are. Ok, done with pulsedailynews.com now. Just like the others, in order to get a headline, you must sensationalize and lie to the world, (or so YOU think). Good riddance.

  4. Rudy as well as Trump did not incite any violence whatsoever… The New York Bar Association are a bunch of left leaning, guttless yuppies that are in some ways a part of the SWAMP… The left is going to keep doing their B… S… and start up a Revolution.. This time it will be 74 + million strong.

  5. This move by Radical Leftists advocates is pure political retribution. Any lawyer who would sign their name to a complaint like this should be grieved. This action is part and parcel of the plan to destroy any semblance of opposition to the Radical Left’s new order. There is no line which the Radical Left will not stomp across.

  6. Mr Matt. You are an ass listening to the trash and upheaval that Trump tries to sow. I did love how he tried to get the Georgia people to “find” 11000 votes. That is CORRUPTION at its best…:

  7. It seems to me that Giuliani is being inappropreately expelled by the New York Bar Association for having made some positive comments about Pres. Trump! One has to wonder just how far those who don’t want Pres.Trump to succeed will go!

  8. FOR WHAT REASON? BECAUSE HE IS FOR ” LAW AND ORDER ? GLAD I NO LONGER LIVE IN THIS STATE THAT I WAS BORN IN AND LIVE FOR 65 YEARS TILL RETIREMENT.

  13. Oh this is rich. Lawyers who are dedicated by oath to uphold justice want to bar someone for his representation of a US citizen. I think we’re a lost society for at least until the next election, that is, if there is anyone left who even wants to vote.

  14. When is Hilary, Comey, Judge Sullivan, Rosenstein, McCabe, Nadler, Schiff, Murphy, Schumer, and scores of others going to lose their licenses for lying, abuse of the law, abuse of the constitution, etc.?

  15. their payback is coming. just wait for it. don’t you guys understand that the deep state is against any decent human being? the more despicable you are, the better you are liked and revered. the sorriest among them are gods to them. they want to be just like them. the more heinous, the better. but the tide is coming in and it will wash away all the scum that has plagued Americans. of that, have no doubt. patriots, be prepared. get what you need to survive. then, stand tall in the breach. we will overcome this madness.

  16. Brian, you should pull your head out and look at facts. think for yourself, dont let the demon rats tell you what to do. trump was trying to get them to do the right thing in Georgia. everyone who has a brain knows what happened in these states. if you have ears and eyes and an open mind, you would understand what is going on. please explain to me again the definition of corruption. is it when the Vice President gets a prosecutor fired who was investigating his druggie sons actions in a foreign country? is it when he threatens to withold a billion dollars of U.s. aid to get it done, and was stupid enough to brag on national t.v.? he will be impeached on his blatant quid pro quo if he ever sees the inside of the Whitehouse. personally, I think he is headed to the big island of Cuba, and a special unit for dementia patients. wait and see. meanwhile, you should adjust your thinking or be removed with the rest of the demon rat trash. the street sweeper is getting closer to you every day.

  17. hey tom, when is someone going to do the right thing by Biden and his lying, plagiarizing communist ho? I’ll wait.

  23. Welcome to communist America. One party, one media, and a dictator. Now we will be told what to think and what to believe. I can’t wait for the re-education camps to open up. If you think the protest at the capital was bad wait till the Communists try to teach us what we need to be. They want civil war, they will get it. AOC will really have a reason to be afraid. Look out for little red dots on your person. Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq will look like a soccer match.
