Former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani will not be allowed to appear on conservative US news channel Fox News.
Sources close to Giuliani told Politico on Friday. The ban will mean that no one will be allowed to meet a Trump supporter on screen.
– Rudy is really hurt, says a source According to Politico.
He is said to have received the letter on September 10 – the day before the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Giuliani was mayor of New York when the attacks occurred, and he became known as the “mayor” of the United States.
It must have been especially painful, because Fox owner Rupert Murdoch, according to Giuliani himself, “owed him” after negotiations that allowed the channel to go on air in New York in 1996.
Politico also spoke with several senior Trump officials, who also said they had difficulty getting a reservation on Fox News recently.
Fox News declined to comment.
Lawsuits for election fraud allegations
Since becoming mayor, Giuliani has been known for a number of other things – most of all for his role as one of Trump’s closest supporters.
He has on several occasions within and outside the judicial system made allegations of electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
There is no evidence of widespread, widespread electoral fraud during the elections.
But the undocumented allegations must also be the background to the quarantine that Fox News has put in place for the past three months. Giuliani himself and the TV channel were sued by Dominion – a company that provides solutions to US election systems.
They accuse him of defamation as a result of lies about their services.
No longer a lawyer
In June of this year Giuliani lost his license to practice law – Also as a result of undocumented allegations of electoral fraud.
– said Giuliani shortly after the Court of Appeal in the court I will go to court and I will fight New York announced the decision.
The court ruled that Giuliani made assertive false and misleading statements about last year’s presidential election as Donald Trump’s personal attorney, according to The New York Times.
The ruling states, among other things, that Giuliani’s behavior was a threat to the public interest and justifies his denial of the permit.
