GOP Reps. Want to Censure House Dem. Who Called for Giuliani to be Disbarred
Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump have been friends for decades. But the former New York City mayor has not been serving the president well in the last year. Giuliani’s attempts to dig up dirt on Hunter Biden resulted in Trump being impeached.
And now Giuliani’s attempts to overturn the election in favor of the Republican have often ended in humiliation. And according to Bill Pascrell, they are grounds for the lawyer to be disbarred. Now a number of House Republicans are calling for Pascrell to be censured for his comments.
In his call for Giuliani’s disbarment, the New Jersey Democrat wrote, “The pattern of behavior by these individuals to effectuate Mr. Trump’s sinister arson is a danger not just to our legal system but is also unprecedented in our national life.”
In their call for Pascrell’s censure, Republicans Andy Biggs and Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), Andy Harris (R-MD), Warren Davidson (R-OH) wrote, “(Trump) has a legal right to sue to ensure that each legal vote is counted and to challenge any illegal votes” and “each candidate running for public office in each state has the right to pursue every legal option to ensure ballot integrity and fair elections.”
Apparently some republicans have filed a pathetic resolution attacking me for opposing trump’s attempt to steal the election w/ frivolous lawsuits.

The New Jersey Rep. wasn’t interested in their argument. He responded, “Fascist wannabes won’t muzzle my free speech or stop me trying to defend our republic. Those supporting this pathetic resolution are complicit in Trump’s attempt to become a dictator.”
