- Rudy Giuliani’s membership in the New York State Bar Association is a step closer to being removed, reported NBC News’ Josh Lederman on Monday. In a statement, the association noted that Giuliani had called for “trial by combat” before the violent insurrection at the U.S Capitol.
- “The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) strongly condemned the violent uprising that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, orchestrated by individuals bent on subverting the will of the voters by disrupting the certification of the 2020 presidential election results,” the group wrote.
- “But the president did not act alone,” the group added. “Hours before the angry mob stormed the Capitol walls, Trump’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, addressed a crowd of thousands at the White House, reiterating baseless claims of widespread election fraud in the presidential election and the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs.”
