New York Supreme Court’s appellate division ruled Thursday to suspend Rudy Giuliani from practicing law for claiming that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump. This month marks the 52nd anniversary since Giuliani began practicing law in the state.

According to the ruling, Giuliani violated New York’s “Rules of Professional Conduct” when he “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public.”

“These false statements were made to improperly bolster (Giuliani’s) narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the court wrote. “We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”

However, the former New York City mayor is only suspended “pending further proceedings before the Attorney Grievance Committee.” It is unclear what Giuliani’s next move is, as he and his team have responded to requests for comment.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
