The former mayor of New York City and Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, urged the angry mob of Trump supporters to conduct a “trial by combat” of lawmakers as they prepared to vote to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win.  The mob, following a speech by the inciter-in-chief,  then marched down Constitution Avenue and attacked the U.S. Capitol.  These domestic terrorists then breached the very chamber where Vice President Pence was presiding the joint session of Congress.

As the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and a former Associate Attorney General, he should have known better.  Words have consequences especially when you are inciting a mob!    January 6, 2021, is day that will live in infamy in U.S. history!   It’s a sad ending for someone who after the 9/11 attack against America, was called a hero, someone that many us  were proud to identify him as an Italian American.   Indeed, in 2007, Giuliani was honored by the National Italian American Foundation, receiving the NIAF Special Achievement Award for Public Service.  Why Rudy?  Why?
