The former New York mayor, who has become a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, is accused by the courts of having pressured elected officials to change the outcome of the election. He is charged in the states of Arizona and Georgia for these attempts to reverse the results of the presidential election won by Joe Biden. He had also been one of the loudest voices to claim, without proof, that fraud had tainted the vote in favor of Joe Biden.

Former Trump lawyer and ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani files for bankruptcy

Rudy Giuliani, 80, has seen his legal troubles mount. Last December, he was ordered by a court to pay $148 million to two Georgia state election officials for defaming them by accusing them of participating in the alleged cheating. He has since declared bankruptcy.

At the same time, he had been suspended from the New York bar. A New York State appeals court upheld that decision on Tuesday, which amounts to a disbarment.

‘Dangerous precedent’: Joe Biden concerned about Supreme Court decision on Donald Trump

In its 31-page decision, the appeals court listed a long list of false and unproven claims publicly made by the former lawyer as counsel to Donald Trump, such as the claim that thousands of votes came from deceased people in the key swing state of Pennsylvania.

Rudy Giuliani “not only willfully violated some of the most fundamental principles of the legal profession, but he also actively contributed to the national conflict that followed the 2020 presidential election. Something he is completely unrepentant about.”
