Ted Goodman with Rudy Giuliani
Guest post by Ted Goodman, Political Strategist and Senior Advisor to Mayor Rudy Giuliani
The DC Court of Appeals Board on Professional Responsibility’s Ad Hoc Hearing Committee’s recommendation to disbar Mayor Rudy Giuliani from the D.C. Bar Association is unfounded and a direct assault on justice.
Even more shameful is the disgusting way the Ad Hoc committee invoked the attacks of September 11th, 2001, and spit on the graves of the innocent lives we lost that day as well as all the first responders, in order to further their political agenda.
The Ad Hoc committee acknowledged Mayor Giuliani’s service to the country as a federal prosecutor and Mayor of New York City. The committee even specifically cited Giuliani’s service following the horrific September 11th terrorist attacks, but then said, “that was a long time ago.”
As first responders from September 11th continue to die from health-related issues twenty-two years later, the committee had the gall to say it was “a long time ago” and simply dismissed the mayor’s service.
Beyond the shockingly vile nature of their justifications, disbarring the mayor for attempting to fulfill his basic responsibilities as an attorney would do great damage to the American justice system.
Before diving into the details of the mayor’s case, it must also be said that this is part of an effort to deny President Trump effective legal counsel by continuing to go after Rudy Giuliani—objectively one of the most effective prosecutors in American history. Denying any American the right to competent counsel goes against every bedrock principle of fairness and justice.
In the pursuit of justice, American jurisprudence has long recognized the significance of due process as a fundamental pillar of the American legal system. As articulated by the late, great legal scholar Benjamin Cardozo, due process safeguards an individual’s rights to notice, an impartial tribunal, and the opportunity to defend oneself. This underlines the indispensability of legal defense as an integral part of upholding justice for all.
Immediately following the 2020 Presidential Election on November 4th, 2020, Mayor Giuliani—objectively one of the most effective federal prosecutors in American history—started receiving calls and messages from voters across the country who had questions and concerns about the integrity and security of our election system.
