Rudy Giuliani, former personal lawyer to Donald Trump, has found himself in quite the unsavory situation of late, and it’s not looking like it’s going to get any better.
Giuliani was tasked by the former President to legally challenge the results of the 2020 election, which Trump has long alleged was rigged. Rudy struck out in the courts, however, as he and fellow attorney Jenna Ellis found themselves turned away by every judicial body they stood before.

“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,” the Appellate Division wrote. “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.”
