Clay: Suspension Of Giuliani Sets A Bad Precedent

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has had his law license suspended because of his advocacy for former president Donald Trump, and that’s undoubtedly not a good thing, says OutKick’s Clay Travis.

“Regardless of what you think of Rudy Giuliani, this is a very bad precedent to set, that if you advocate for someone that upsets one side of the political equation, they will strip your law license,” Clay says. “I have represented murderers, I have represented alleged rapists, I have represented people accused of domestic violence, drug dealing … a lot of clients that are not necessarily the best dudes. That’s part of the job of being a lawyer.”

That’s why we have lawyers — to zealously advocate for people to the best of their ability.

“And that’s what Rudy Giuliani did,” Clay says. “And that also is what John Adams did when he defended the British soldiers that were accused of shooting the citizens of Boston during the Boston Massacre.”

Clay goes on to say that “lawyers defend the good and bad in society, they represent all of the scope of human behavior.”

So suspending licenses of lawyers based on political activism doesn’t just impact lawyers. It impacts those who deserve representation. For Clay’s full take on this subject, check out the video below.

  1. Yet Michael’s Avenatti is awaiting sentencing for bilking clients and trying to extort Nike and he’s still got his law license. New York is a joke. Every government sector is run by partisan hacks.

  2. How many pedophile’s has the ACLU defended without risk of losing ones law license?

    Doubt Hunter Biden’s lawyer ever need worry in the Empire State…

  3. These political asswipes are a disgrace to the entire nation. Rudy was the best mayor & leader that ever served the people of NYC and the country. The political persecution of Rudy by these buffoons is just another example of why the left needs to be crushed in this country. Let’s hope God loving Americans come out in droves to remove all these assholes from office and prosecute them for real crimes against the country.

  4. Not to mention, those so-called “lies” were based on the statistical improbabilities of a Biden win given election night trends in non-battleground areas, as well as the statements under oath of hundreds of poll works & others with access (or denied access). Trump received millions more LEGITIMATE votes…only a fool or partisan media & political players would believe otherwise given the information available. The NY state bar association are the crooked liars…and they know it.
