After the fall?Giuliani was reviewed by the New York Bar Association
Since the violent rush into Capitol Hill on January 6, there have been many phenomena that are no stranger to Chinese readers in the United States. For example, high-tech companies have turned into “network managers”, blatantly deleting posts and banning accounts; another example is the retaliatory actions against Trump supporters in various parts of the United States, reporting on relatives and colleagues.
The Epoch Times reported that in New York, the largest American bar association, the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) announced on Monday (January 11) that they will review the former New York Mayor and Trump President’s lawyer Giuliani ( Rudy Giuliani) gave a “seditious” speech in front of Capitol Hill on January 6, and then decided whether to expel him from the association.
According to the New York Post, NYSBA chairman Scott Karson said that this is the first time their association has encountered such a thing in modern society. He said that he had received many complaints against Giuliani earlier, and the Congressional shock incident was the last straw for him to make an investigation decision.
An expert speech invited by Giuliani in Washington DC on the 6th pointed out that there are multiple frauds in the 2020 US election and said that many people should go to prison.
Carson also said that although Giuliani filed many lawsuits about the stolen election, they were rejected by courts at all levels. So he wanted to check whether the former mayor and famous lawyer violated the association’s constitution.
In this regard, Giuliani has not received notice of investigation. He is not the only target of revenge. Since January 6, many Trump team members and their supporters have been purged by high-tech companies and personal units.

A YouTube spokesperson claimed: “After careful review, considering the possibility of inciting violence, we have deleted the latest video from Trump’s channel in accordance with the violator’s regulations. At the same time, the channel is prohibited from uploading videos for a week.” YouTube also said that it will suspend the comment function of Trump’s channel indefinitely.
Trump’s YouTube channel has 2.77 million subscribers.
