Trump’s lawyer loses honorary degree over Capitol riots

Middlebury, a private liberal arts college in Vermont, revoked President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani's honorary degree on Tuesday.

"Middlebury College has made the decision to revoke the honorary degree it presented to the presidential attorney Rudolph Giuliani in 2005, and has communicated this to Mr. Giuliani's office," the college said in a statement on January 12.

The college's decision followed remarks from College President Laurie Patton on Sunday, when she accused Giuliani of "fomenting the violent uprising" and said it was the college's "responsibility for safeguarding and improving our fragile democracy."

Giuliani has faced criticism for a speech he gave at the Stop the Steal rally that took place in Washington, D.C., before the U.S. Capitol riot last Wednesday.

During his speech, Giuliani reiterated baseless claims that widespread election fraud affected the outcome of the presidential race. He also said Trump supporters should resist the election's results.
