Rudy Giuliani: lawyers call for Trump's personal attorney to lose law licence

Rudy Giuliani under fire from prominent lawyers’ group over election fraud claims and inciting pro-Trump mob at Capitol.

A group of prominent lawyers has asked New York’s judiciary to suspend Rudy Giuliani’s law licence for making false claims in post-election lawsuits and urging Donald Trump’s supporters to engage in “trial by combat” shortly before they stormed the US Capitol.

Lawyers Defending American Democracy is also calling for investigation of Giuliani, who served as a federal prosecutor and a New York City mayor before Trump hired him as personal attorney.

“This complaint is about law, not politics,” said their letter to the attorney grievance committee for the New York supreme court. It was signed by more than 40 lawyers.

Giuliani did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

I’ve just filed legal complaints with the AZ, MI, NV, NY, and PA bars against Rudy Giuliani and 22 other lawyers seeking their disbarments for filing frivolous lawsuits and trying to help Trump steal the election and dismantle democracy.

Here is a copy of my complaint to the New York State judicial conduct body calling for Rudy Giuliani’s law license to be stripped. Similar letters were sent to four other states against Trump lawyers.

As I noted in a different thread - this is different from the OP and is more serious than the efforts to remove him from Bar Associations.

3. The fruit of the poison tree

 

cannot flourish if the foots are not watered.

Several east coast private colleges (especially those in MA) have think tanks (such as the Center for Social and Political Change) which are used to divert funds from the endowment portfolio into conservative causes.

The "research" is often toxic. Smith College, which houses this anti-diversity clinic has a very long history of institutional racism.

I really hope and pray that the good Congressman looks into pulling out the roots rather than just pruning the branches of the poison tree into a good-looking topiary. That particular school appears to now be so worried that they have recently taken significant steps to obscure the money trail.

5. UMASS/Amherst is my alma mater

and thus I know about the "5 college consortium" there and all the colleges that were part of it, that included UMASS, Amherst College, Smith College, Mt. Holyoke College, and Hampshire College.

Believe it or not, there was quite a bit of radical leftism going on at all 5 as well - at least when I was there.

However am not sure if your reply is to the correct post because I am not understanding what you are referencing with respect to efforts to have the sham lawyers disbarred?

6. Hey there!

 

I spent a good bit of time in Amherst too and you are correct about the leftism there. I posted that in this thread because most lawyers, and almost all conservative ones are in it for the money and the money was pouring out of Smith College's Ada Comstock Program (run by the wife) into the Center for Social and Political Change run by the husband). For example the Motts Foundation (the applesauce people) forked over serious money to help the older students in Ada Progam and that cash vanished so fast and with so little accountability that Motts was really annoyed.

Smith became Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity in 1987 or so only because a chemistry professor got a grant of millions of dollars that he had to return because the school was not listed as such. The administration took the money and proved their white supremacist leanings by forcing out out every single Black faculty member to resign before the end of that semester. And they are STILL at it.

So the money trail needs to be explored. Somebody paid for those 80 buses of people to get to the Capitol and guess where some of that cash came from?

Nancy Pelosi really needs to get on the ball because she gave the 2020 Commencement speech at Smith and on Jan 6 2021 she got something they may have paid for.

7. I had gotten inquiries/acceptances from both Smith and Mt. Holyoke

back in 1979 but since I was coming from an all-girls high school, I wanted to finally experience "co-ed" again and UMASS was it (at the time, Amherst had only recently gone co-ed but was still mostly male).

I can't speak for those later years post-Raygun, but I know that essentially "revolutionary" change happened among those schools during the early - late '70s, including the first black Chancellor at UMASS.

And regarding the "80 buses" - I expect there were lots of clusters of buses reserved, but not as an 80-bus contract. For example, the stories about Clarence Thomas' wife Virginia being a sponsor was found to be a hoax.

However here PA, the loon PA State Senator and seditionist Doug Mastriano (R-33/Franklin) DID spend thousands sponsoring buses, AND there were others here, who also organized bus transport -

Mastriano campaign spent thousands on buses ahead of D.C. insurrection

By Katie Meyer, Miles Bryan, Ryan Briggs | January 12, 2021

(snip)

Widespread GOP organizing

Mastriano was not the only Pennsylvania GOP official linked to orchestrating travel to D.C. last week. A review of dozens of social media pages and event listings show that at least 10 county-level GOP chapters encouraged or directly facilitated trips to the capitol.

The Cumberland County Republican Committee scheduled buses to transport Trump supporters to D.C. the morning of Jan. 6. In a Facebook post from Jan. 3, the committee exhorted its members to “continue to rally for our President and stop the steal!!”

On Monday, the committee issued its first statement on Facebook addressing the violence at the Capitol. Leaders condemned it — with caveats.

“While we denounce the violence that occurred last week, we voice our support for the thousands of PEACEFUL protestors, including two busloads of protestors from Cumberland County, who went to Washington, D.C. last Wednesday, on December 12, 2020, and on November 14, 2020, to raise awareness of the widespread fraud that occurred during the 2020 election,” the committee wrote.

https://whyy.org/articles/mastriano-campaign-spent-thousands-on-buses-ahead-of-d-c-insurrection/


The other counties noted in the article included Beaver, Berks, Bradford, Bucks, Chester, Clinton, Huntington, Lawrence, Northampton, and Snyder.

So there is a lot of reckoning that needs to happen with both the federal AND state legislators who were involved in sedition.

11. Maybe we should move this discussion

 

to the Education Forum.

But let me say again, very clearly,
Smith College sponsors the Center for Social and Political Change.

The Center for Social and Political Change is opposed to diversity in all its forms and especially antagonistic towards black students going to ANY university at all anywhere in the US or elsewhere.

I stand by those statements and so I cannot possibly understand WHY Nancy Pelosi agreed to give a commencement address there. Anyhow, karma caught up with her on January 6 2021 and if it had not been for a BLACK person (Eugene Goodman) she would have experienced first hand what black students on that campus go through on a daily basis.

I repeat, the funding of that think tank should be very carefully examined.

12. Still trying to figure out how your post relates to the disbarment of Rudy Giuliani

...which is the subject of this thread other than to bash a Democratic leader?

13. I am NOT bashing

 

a Democratic Leader.

I am saying that the lawyers who filed those frivolous cases were paid. Very well.

I am pointing out that a certain college has been known to move money without accounting for it properly into a right-wing think tank that spews hate disguised as academic research.

I am further pointing out that such money and hate directly or indirectly led to the events of January 6 2021.

I am even further pointing out that a democratic leader has NOT picked up on these facts which is VERY worrying because young gifted black girls might very easily assume that her appearance there is evidence of a carefully researched endorsement and then make the mistake of enrolling in the Seven Sisters answer to Abu Ghraib.

The money trail from private "progressive"colleges to right wing lawyers exists. THAT is the point I am trying to make.

14. "I am saying that the lawyers who filed those frivolous cases were paid. Very well."

I would think they were "paid"... by "someone"... for what amounted to nothing!

That's pretty presumptuous of you.

because young gifted black girls might very easily assume that her appearance there is evidence of a carefully researched endorsement and then make the mistake of enrolling in the Seven Sisters answer to Abu Ghraib.


What "young gifted black girls"? I don't see what a commencement address to students has anything to do with this thread? She was given an honorary degree from there as well.

The money trail from private "progressive"colleges to right wing lawyers exists. THAT is the point I am trying to make.


I still don't see a connection to this thread other than inserting a different agenda into it.
