“This how mafia bosses work. They make the ‘request’ & soldiers & capos (Rudy Giuliani) follow up with the demand,” she tweeted, before calling for the former New York City mayor to face more tangible consequences.
“Why is this man still a member of the NY a bar? He should not be. He is free as a [United States] citizen to make up stuff but not as member of the bar,” she wrote.
Rocah’s take on Giuliani were echoed by her former SDNY colleague Renato Mariotti, who categorized the ordeal as an affront to the office of the president.
“Giuliani falsely claims it’s “appropriate” for the President to bully a foreign country into investigating his political rival,” he wrote, adding, “The problem with Trump’s conduct isn’t a quid pro quo. It’s the abuse of presidential power to get aid from a foreign nation in an election.”
University of Michigan law professor Barb McQuade went ever further, suggesting that Giuliani could face criminal charges for his conduct.
“While a sitting President cannot be indicted, Giuliani can,” the former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan wroteSaturday morning.
“More facts are needed, but if he brokered deal to trade dirt on Biden for foreign aid, he could be guilty of conspiracy to commit bribery. Trump would return to his familiar role as Individual 1.”
Giuliani should be disbarred and literally anyone can call the New York Bar and file a complaint for a violation of the ethics code.
