WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia Court of Appeals in a court document disclose that Former President Donald Trump’s ex-attorney Rudy Giuliani had been suspended from practicing law in Washington, DC.

“ORDERED pursuant to DC Bar Rule XI, § 11(d), that the respondent is suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pending final disposition of this proceeding, effective on the date of entry of this order,” the District of Columbia Court of Appeals said on Wednesday, Sputnik reported.

According to the court documents Washington suspension will be in effective pending the outcome of Giuliani’s licence suspension in the state of New York. The suspension of the New York license was due to his role in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The 77-year-old Giuliani helped lead Trump’s legal challenge to the election won by President Joe Biden, arguing that the vote had been rife with fraud and that counting machines had been rigged. The appellate division of the Supreme Court in New York, hearing the motion brought to de-license Guiliani over the matter, agreed that he had acted without merit.

Giuliani, admitted to the state bar in New York in 1969, was named US Attorney in Manhattan in 1983 and worked for the Justice Department during the Reagan administration. He also served as mayor of New York City for eight years, rising to national prominence during Sept 11, 2001 terror attacks on the city.

2020 Election

Georgia county’s district Attorney struggles to investigate Trump amidst backlog of 12,000 cases

“We have a historic backlog of 12,000 cases,” she said.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is determined to investigate and, potentially, prosecute Donald Trump for pressuring Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, to “find” enough votes to overturn the state’s election results.

Legal experts says that the case in Georgia might be the strongest investigation against the former president, who is also the subject of investigations in New York and Washington, DC.

But a spike in crimes in Atlanta and a backlog of cases to process could impede her office’s ability to fully investigate Trump, former associates say.

During a Fulton County Board of Commissioners meeting on July 14, Willis acknowledged that her office lacked the staff and resources to address these two issues.

“We have a historic backlog of 12,000 cases,” she said. “The manpower we have right now will not adequately suffice, nor will the COVID money with the restrictions that have been put on it.”

This could ultimately impede her ability to investigate Trump and could put her in a difficult position to decide where to allocate her resources, former associates of Willis’ added.

“The problem she has is that she’s in an elected position and the residents are getting tired of the crime,” Michael Moore, an Obama-era former US attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, said in an interview. “So are you going to dump all your resources into this [Trump] case that may turn into nothing? Or are you going to do your job and represent the people who have voted you in?

Democrats might subpoena Trump & Ivanka Before House Jan. 6 Committee

“If the facts themselves lead us to any individual, we will not hesitate to bring them before the committee”

Former President Donald Trump could be called to testify before the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, The Guardian reported Wednesday.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told The Guardian he would issue subpoenas to some senior members of the previous administration and would pursue subpoenas in court if necessary.

“Nothing is off limits,” Thompson told The Guardian.

On the question of issuing a subpoena to Trump, Thompson told PBS on July 6 that “we have the subpoena authority.”

“If the facts themselves lead us to any individual, we will not hesitate to bring them before the committee,” he told PBS.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., created the committee to probe the events surrounding the Jan. 6 assault, in which demonstrators protesting the November election results stormed the Capitol.

The committee, put in place by Pelosi after the Senate failed to pass the Jan. 6 Commission, will hold its first hearing Tuesday. The speaker has allowed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to name just five Republicans on the 12-member committee, and she has the authority to veto selections.

Democrats appear determined to put Trump at the center of their investigation.

Thompson told The Guardian he was interested in speaking to anyone who talked with the then-president on Jan. 6. The chairman especially was interested in learning about a phone call between Trump and McCarthy while the Capitol attack was ongoing.

“There will not be a reluctance on the part of the committee to pursue it,” Thompson said of the call. “The committee will want to know if there is a record of what was said.”

Thompson said he was willing to seek depositions from other members of Congress who might have been involved in the Capitol assault.

“The issues of Jan. 6 are one of the most salient challenges we have as a nation, to make sure that this democracy does not fall prey to people who don’t really identify with democracy,” Thompson said.

Ivanka Trump, the former president’s oldest daughter, and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows could be among people subpoenaed to appear.

“If somebody spoke to the president on Jan. 6, I think it would be important for our committee to know what was said. I can’t imagine you talk about anything else to the president on Jan. 6,” Thompson told The Guardian.

Trump administration officials who refuse to appear before the committee, citing executive privilege, would face subpoenas and lawsuits, Thompson said.

The committee chairman said he expected the committee and senior House investigators to meet with Attorney General Merrick Garland, but insisted his investigation would not overlap with existing criminal probes opened by the justice department and the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

“We don’t want to get in the way of indictments,” Thompson told The Guardian. “But I think there could be some sharing of information that could be germane to our investigation, just like other committees have negotiated in the past.”

The committee has no deadline by which to submit a report, Thompson said, and warned against any Republican delay tactics.

“Notwithstanding elections next year, we will not stop until our investigation is complete,” Thompson said.

Texas House Republican proposes bill repealing for forensic audit of 2020 election

The move comes as the Texas House Democratic delegation fled the state en masse to Washington, D.C., to deny Republicans a quorum to enact voting restrictions.

A Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives introduced a bill Monday seeking a forensic election audit of the state’s largest counties.

The Texas Voter Confidence Act, filed by GOP Rep. Steve Toth, authorizes the governor, lieutenant governor, and speaker of the House — all of whom are currently Republicans — to select an independent third party to conduct the election audit. The review would focus on the votes cast in Texas’ 13 counties with a population over 415,000.

Former President Donald Trump carried Texas in the 2020 election, however, President Joe Biden won in areas including Houston, Austin and San Antonio — the biggest metropolitan areas in the state.

“We need a forensic audit to uncover all the voter fraud, Toth said Monday in a post on Woodlandsonline, a community web site. “Texans want to know more about the claims of voter fraud and deserve to have confidence in their elections…Voters want to know that their legal vote counts and matters.”

The move comes as the Texas House Democratic delegation fled the state en masse to Washington, D.C., to deny Republicans a quorum to enact voting restrictions. It also comes as GOP-led states have introduced or passed dozens of election-related bills following Trump’s repeated baseless claims that the election was stolen. In states such as Arizona, where Biden won the presidential race,

Republicans are also conducting a costly and controversial audit of ballots in the state’s largest county.

The act introduced by Toth would take effect immediately if it received a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each chamber of the Texas Legislature. If it passed but did not achieve that margin, it would take effect on the 91st day after the last day of the legislative session.

Rep. Chris Turner, who chairs the Texas House Democratic Caucus, told The Dallas Morning News on Tuesday that the legislation appears to be based on “the lie that there’s widespread voter fraud and Donald Trump really won the election.” Turner said that the bill’s parameters also appear to include both Democratic and Republican strongholds in the states.

“I don’t know if these folks are aware of it, Trump actually did carry Texas,” Turner said. “So I’m not sure what they’re trying to find in their audit.”
