Thursday's ruling found Giuliani violated the code of conduct for lawyers by making false statements to the courts, the public and lawmakers as he pushed theories that the 2020 election was stolen through fraud.

Trump called the suspension a politically motivated “witch hunt,” while Giuliani said it was a “disgrace.”

The ruling will prevent Giuliani from representing clients as a lawyer.

But he vowed to challenge it.
