Attorneys Robert C. Gottlieb and Dennis Aftergut wrote for the New York Daily News on Monday and called for the disbarment of Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Joseph DiGenova.
“Those questions are unavoidable in the case of DiGenova,” they write. “On November 30, he said on Newsmax TV that former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, Christopher Krebs, should be ‘taken out at dawn and shot.’ DiGenova’s dog whistle to militia types came just days after Trump fired Krebs for vouching for the election’s integrity.”
Both Gottlieb and Aftergut believe that DeGenova’s attempt to walk back his death threat comments fall flat. “It is no laughing matter for a lawyer to fan flames,” they write.
While the attorneys say they hope Giuliani’s current case of coronavirus is mild, his conduct has been a “disgrace.”
“As 25 former DC Bar presidents wrote on December 1, lawyers may not falsely proclaim widespread voting fraud, submit a pattern of frivolous court claims and actively seek to undermine citizens’ faith in our election’s integrity without running afoul of ethical mandates,” they write.
