Rudy Giuliani has been in a downward spiral for many years. In the early 2000’s, he was a wildly popular mayor thought of as a future presidential candidate. He went nowhere in the Republican primaries, though, and hasn’t held office since leading New York City.
What Giuliani has been doing, though, is supporting Donald Trump as a surrogate and a lawyer. The results have been embarrassing and unsuccessful. And now, Giuliani may be losing his membership in the New York Bar Association.
NBC News Josh Lederman tweeted Monday morning, “Inbox: New York State Bar Association moves to remove Rudy Giuliani from membership.”

Prior to Lederman’s message, the Bar had put out a statement condemning Giuliani. It read, in part, “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 statement continued, “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.”
Even if the Bar removes Giuliani, he would still retain his law license.
