Legal Challenge Launched To Disbar Rudy Giuliani Because Of 'Fraud' And 'Deceit'

A legal challenge has been launched in the US to disbar Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

New Jersey Democratic representative Bill Pascrell has lodged an official complaint with New York's attorney disciplinary officials. He's also submitted similar complaints in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

Pascrell has alleged Giuliani has been fraudulent and deceitful in his attempts to change the 2020 US Election in favour of Donald Trump.

In his submission to the Grievance Committee for three New York Judicial Districts, the Democratic politician said: "Mr. Giuliani has participated in the filing of a series of absurd lawsuits seeking to overturn the will of the voters...and has caused irreversible damage to the public trust in the fair administration of our elections.

"[He] should face the severest sanction your body can mete out: revocation of his law license."

Giuliani has been leading Donald Trump's attempts to subvert the outcome of the 2020 Election by launching legal challenges in states where Joe Biden won or the margin was incredibly close.

Pascrell says Giuliani is 'clearly' violating the state's Rules of Professional Misconduct, which prohibit 'dishonesty, fraud, deceit' and 'misrepresentations'. It's illegal in the state of New York for attorneys to file frivolous lawsuits.

But Giuliani isn't the only target of Pascrell's complaint.

His official submissions in New York and other states include 22 other lawyers who have been involved in trying to get more votes for Donald Trump.

"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," he wrote.

Giuliani fronted the media last week to claim he had loads of evidence of widespread voter fraud, however he wasn't able to reveal any specifics.

Donald Trump's lawyer said there was a 'massive influence of communist money' that was pumped into the election 'from Venezuela, Cuba and China' and also blamed George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, Antifa and other shadowy groups or individuals for affecting the outcome.

He added that there have been 'over-votes' in Michigan and that amounts to voter fraud, however Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said that is 'quite common' for a precinct to have a balance issue and 'it's more of a bookkeeping, clerical issue'.

Interestingly, the issue Giuliani was referring to happened in 2016 when Trump won Michigan with 80 per cent of Detroit precincts out of balance, however no issue was raised from Trump's team. During the 2020 election, only 42 per cent of precincts are out of balance, and yet it now amounts to voter fraud.
