  • Giuliani is sad he is 'portrayed as some kind of money-grubbing ambulance chaser': report

Giuliani, a former New York City attorney and mayor, has been widely criticized for his role at the helm of Trump's failed attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

In their complaint, the group calls for the committee to investigate Giuliani's conduct, including his comments at a rally before rioters stormed into the U.S. Capitol, and to suspend his law license immediately while any investigation is underway.

Giuliani told The Times on Friday that he has not received any money for helping Trump in his legal bid, aside from having "a few expenses reimbursed".

He has also been alleged of motivating Trump supporters to engage in "trial by combat" after the former President diverted them to riot inside the US Capitol.

But according The New York Times, the latest complaint from the non-partisan group Lawyers Defending American Democracy "perhaps the most serious condemnation of Mr. Giuliani's conduct to date".

After months of denial, Giuliani admitted his associate requested a daily $20,000 fee to help Trump.

He added that he represented the president out of a sense of commitment.

The Times' Haberman reported last night, "Mr. Giuliani acknowledged in a brief phone interview that his associate, Maria Ryan, had sent the email shortly after Election Day".

Giuliani accused the Democratic party of carrying out centralised and coordinated voter fraud in multiple states, which was the central argument of a widespread court battle by the Trump campaign to overturn the presidential election results at the end of past year.

In doing so, he undermined "the most fundamental of the rights protected by the Constitution. the right to vote", they said.

The group also asked that Giuliani's law license be temporarily suspended while an investigation into his acts are investigated.

As of Friday morning, more than 1,000 people have signed the letter on the group's website. When outlets asked about the request, Giuliani denied it, insisting that it was a lie.

While it is unusual for a lawyer to be suspended or struck off, Faughnan told Reuters that Thursday's letter presented strong evidence against Giuliani and that he would "be concerned" if such a complaint were made against the one of his clients.

The New York Times reported that on his radio show on Thursday, Giuliani said "the whole objective of this is to disbar me from my exercising my right of free speech and defending my client, because they can't fathom the fact that maybe, just maybe, they may be wrong".
