  Will Rudy Giuliani be disbarred? Probably not for Trump's election lawsuits, experts say. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer still faces the risk of losing his law license because of his work in Ukraine, according to legal experts.Rep. Bill Pascrell, a New Jersey Democrat, filed letters with the state bars of Arizona, Michigan, New York, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, seeking the disbarment of Giuliani and 22 other lawyers working for the Trump campaign.

Trump' s election legal team holds a press conference to spout a number of conspiracy theories and baseless claims of voter fraud that they falsely claim changed the results of the 2020 election.

A federal judge dismissed the Trump campaign’s attempt to steal the election in Pennsylvania on Saturday, calling out Rudy Giuliani’s attempt to “disenfranchise almost 7 million voters” based on zero actual evidence of voter fraud.

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew W. Brann, who heard Giuliani’s disastrous argument on the case earlier this week, said the court “has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations” that weren’t tied to the actual complaint nor supported by evidence.

“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more,” Brann wrote.

Giuliani did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment on Saturday evening. But when asked earlier whether he had made a deal with President Donald Trump in exchange for a preemptive pardon, Giuliani told a HuffPost reporter to “Get lost.”

Judge Brann said that it was perfectly legitimate for Pennsylvania counties to offer voters an opportunity to “cure” their mail-in ballots. The Trump campaign had complained that elections officials in Democratic-leaning counties had done a better job than officials in Republican-leaning counties advising voters when they made a mistake on their mail-in ballots, and claimed this amounted to an equal protection violation. Brann said that argument was rubbish.

Giuliani's "disgraceful" courtroom election fraud arguments are from a "fantasy world," defense says

  Giuliani's Giuliani, who claims to represent President Trump for free, reportedly asked the campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his contributions to the last-ditch crusade, multiple people briefed on the matter told The New York Times. The rate would make Giuliani, who often says he represents Trump for free in his personal capacity, among the most highly paid lawyers in the world. Giuliani, who has scraped for cash in the last year, denied to The Times that he had asked the campaign for such a high amount. "I never asked for $20,000," he said. "The arrangement is — we'll work it out at the end.

A lawyer Giuliani faced off with in his first presentation in federal court in decades found his arguments anything but convincing. According to Aronchick, Giuliani ’ s remedy for the alleged fraud was to throw out an ever-growing number of votes .

“No county was forced to adopt notice-and-cure; each county made a choice to do so, or not. Because it is not irrational or arbitrary for a state to allow counties to expand the right to vote if they so choose, Individual Plaintiffs fail to state an equal-protection claim,” he wrote.

“Even assuming that they can establish that their right to vote has been denied, which they cannot, Plaintiffs seek to remedy the denial of their votes by invalidating the votes of millions of others. Rather than requesting that their votes be counted, they seek to discredit scores of other votes, but only for one race. This is simply not how the Constitution works,” Brann wrote.

Here’s what happened when Rudolph Giuliani made his first appearance in federal court in nearly three decades .
The former U.S. attorney came under heavy criticism from opposing counsel and appeared unable to answer several questions from the judge about legal technicalities. Trump is seeking to stop the certification of Pennsylvania’s vote in the Nov. 3 election, alleging that Republican voters in the state were illegally disadvantaged because some Democratic-leaning counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots. Two voters named as co-plaintiffs with Trump’s campaign in the long-shot lawsuit had their ballots voided and allege that they were not given a chance to correct their mistakes.
