Rudy Giuliani Lost His Temper During His Attorney-misconduct Hearing And Called Disciplinary Counsel’s Inquiries “Sneaky.”
Rudy Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City, lost his temper on the second day of his attorney-misconduct hearing, accused the disciplinary counsel of asking unfair questions, and went on lengthy rants about the 2020 election while the panel’s chairman pleaded with him to give straightforward answers. Giuliani is being investigated for allegations of professional misconduct.
Giuliani’s asides at the virtual hearing were so lengthy that at one point, the disciplinary counsel, Hamilton Fox, stated that he wasn’t sure how long it would take him to get through his questions. This was because Giuliani’s comments were so lengthy. Fox stated that the outcome will be determined by whether or not she received responses or the same information repeated numerous times. “If we can obtain responses.
Giuliani jumped in and said that Fox had made an “unfair comment,” and he continued by saying, “I’m defending myself, Mr. Fox.” The chairman of the panel, Robert Bernius, addressed Mr. Giuliani and said, “Ok, Mr. Giuliani, just hold off a little bit.”
An ethics complaint against Giuliani was filed by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel of the Washington, DC bar association. This led to disciplinary proceedings against him. Giuliani’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania are at the center of the case. At the time, Giuliani was as personal attorney for then-President Donald Trump.
The ODC has accused Giuliani of breaking Pennsylvania’s Rules of Professional Conduct by filing a “frivolous” lawsuit that seeks to throw out millions of votes in Pennsylvania and engaging in “conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.” This accusation was made after Giuliani was accused of engaging in “conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.” During the procedures that took place on Tuesday, Giuliani expressed his belief that he was being unfairly attacked.
He responded by saying, “I am startled and insulted that this is happening to me.” The former mayor also failed to answer the questions he was given on multiple occasions and deviated into lengthy talks about the voting procedures in Pennsylvania and alleged voter fraud in other states. Bernius said that he was unable to keep up with the line of questions because the length of his digressions was so great.
Bernius said to Giuliani, “I know that you have a lot to say, but honestly, I’d like to finish this hearing by Christmas, and I’m getting concerned that we won’t be able to do it.” “Mr. Giuliani, I know that you have a lot to say, but honestly, I’d like to finish this hearing by Christmas,” Bernius said.
“In all seriousness, I cannot remember the last question. If you could just try to contain yourself to providing an answer to the issue that has been addressed, then we will be able to go on.” Giuliani responded by stating that he would attempt it, but he emphasized that he was trying to clear his name. Additionally, he stated that Fox had cornered him by interrogating him with “sneaky” questions.
As the hearing progressed, the previous mayor became increasingly animated. Fox News at one time focused its attention on Rudy Giuliani’s comments in front of United States District Judge Matthew Brann in the Trump campaign’s lawsuit challenging the election results in Pennsylvania in 2020.
Fox pointed out that Giuliani had misquoted the conclusion reached by a presidential committee regarding absentee voting when he was presenting the issue. In particular, “absentee ballots remain the major source of potential voter fraud,” as stated in the report that was compiled by the Carter-Baker Commission in 2005.
But when Giuliani referred to the report while arguing the Pennsylvania case, he left out the word “potential.” He told Brann that in the report, “they very, very seriously warn us, quote, mail-in balloting is the largest source of voter fraud.” Giuliani omitted the word “potential” when he referred. Giuliani’s frustration became apparent as Fox pointed out the omission, and he responded by adding, “You are actually, but never mind about that. Never mind. This is a picky issue.”
“You don’t think there’s a difference between telling the court that a presidential commission said that mail-in balloting was the largest source of voter fraud and saying that it was the largest potential source of voter fraud?” “You don’t think there’s a difference between saying that mail-in balloting was the largest source of voter fraud and saying that it was the largest potential source of voter fraud?” Fox asked.
Giuliani responded, “No, I don’t think there’s a very large difference between the two of them,” when asked about the comparison. “Whether you characterize it as prospective or actual fraud, there is no other source of fraud that is larger than this one.”
Giuliani could be heard asking his lawyer John Leventhal, “For that, I’m going to get disciplined?” as Fox tried to move on to the next issue. Leventhal yelled at Giuliani to “Cease that right now.” “God almighty,” Giuliani said.
