(USA Features) Andrew Giuliani, who is running for New York City mayor as a Republican, stood up for his father Rudy Giuliani after a New York court suspended his law license on Thursday.
“Five to nothing, ultimately. Democrats with zero Republicans on there. This is just unbelievable to see just how politicized all of this has become,” Andrew Giuliani said following the ruling.
The ruling claimed that the former NYC mayor, in his capacity as then-President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, presented false evidence in court regarding his client’s claims of a stolen 2020 election.
But Andrew Giuliani pushed back and said his father never misrepresented facts as he has been accused of doing.
“I am infuriated by all of this and any American that believes in an independent justice system… this is going after one of President Trump’s closest allies,” he said.

“That’s exactly what this is, and any American that doesn’t believe that, they are just biased. This is unacceptable, and I stand by my father. He did everything, ultimately, by the book,” he added.
Rudy Giuliani, who was near the end of his term when during the 9/11 attacks and was praised for his responses to the collapse of the then-twin World Trade Center towers, is also a noted former federal prosecutor who took down Mob figures in the 1970s and 1980s.
In its ruling, the appellate court said that it was “immediately suspending” the former NYC mayor’s license to practice law in the state.
“We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020,” the court wrote.
“These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the ruling continued.
“We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law, pending further proceedings before the Attorney Grievance Committee,” said the court.
