Liars can’t be lawyers.

This is the document removing the New York law license from Rudy Giuliani. It is long and detailed but the essence is simple to understand . . .

A lawyer cannot lie to the courts, lawmakers and the public and remain a lawyer.

“For the reasons that follow, we conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that [Giuliani] communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020. These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client. We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law, pending further proceedings before the Attorney Grievance Committee (sometimes AGC or Committee).”

  1. The Big Lie is being pounded daily in the infamous effort to repeat it so often that it “becomes” true. The right wing is definitely trying to repeat history. Not ours, however.
