RUDY Giuliani could be disbarred for the "part he played in inciting deadly US Capitol riot."
The New York State Bar Association has linked the former New York mayor to the Capitol riots that took place last week.
Prior to the chaos, Rudy Giuliani spoke at a Stop The Steal rally and told supporters "let's have trial by combat."
Just hours later, the US Capitol building was stormed, which resulted in at least five deaths.
The association confirmed that they have "received hundreds of complaints in recent months" about the attorney.
Giuliani has been a key aide of Trump and helped him to spread baseless claims concerning the results of the 2020 election.
"Based on these complaints, and the statement Mr. Giuliani uttered shortly before the attack on the Capitol, NYSBA President Scott M. Karson has launched an inquiry pursuant to the Association’s bylaws to determine whether Mr. Giuliani should be removed from the membership rolls of the Association," the association said in a statement.
However, Giuliani will be able to "explain and defend his words and actions," according to the association.
Their statement was concluded by confirming that the decision is "historic" and one that was not made "lightly."
"We cannot stand idly by and allow those intent on rending the fabric of our democracy to go unchecked," the statement signed off.
