Early life and education
Rudy Giuliani was born in 1944 in Brooklyn, New York, the only child of working-class parents Harold and Helen. Harold, who had trouble finding a job, was sentenced to prison for felony and robbery at Sing Sing. When he was released, he worked with his brother-in-law, who operated an organized crime-affiliated gambling and loan sharking ring in a Brooklyn restaurant. As a youth, Giuliani attended St. Anne’s Catholic School, and later went to Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School. He then attended Manhattan College in the Bronx, where he majored in political science. After his graduation, Giuliani attended the New York University School of Law, from where he graduated in 1968 with his JD.
Giuliani began his political career as a Democrat in 1968, volunteering for Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign. Additionally, he served on the Democratic Party Committee on Long Island.
Beginning of legal career
After graduating from law school, Giuliani clerked for Judge Lloyd Francis McMahon of the United States for the Southern District of New York. Later, after switching from Democrat to independent in 1975, he served as associate deputy attorney general in the Ford administration. From 1977 to 1981, Giuliani practiced law at the firm Patterson, Belknap, Webb, and Tyler. During this time, following the election of Ronald Reagan, Giuliani again changed his party affiliation from independent to Republican. In 1981, he was named associate attorney general in the Reagan administration, and in 1983, became the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Giuliani began to rise to prominence in this position because of his many high-profile cases, which involved prosecuting drug dealers and organized crime.
One of Giuliani’s most famous cases was the Mafia Commission trial, which lasted from 1985 to 1986. As chief federal prosecutor, he indicted 11 organized crime figures on racketeering, extortion, and hired murder. Another highly publicized case involved Evan Bosky, a Wall Street arbitrator who was charged with insider trading; The case led to the prosecution of junk bond trader Michael Milken, who was also implicated in the scheme.
After an unsuccessful campaign for mayor of New York City in 1989, Giuliani succeeded in 1993, and was re-elected in 1997. With his platform to crack down on crime, he led the city’s controversial “civil cleanup” between 1994 and 2001. In particular, Giuliani focused on eliminating panhandlers and sex clubs from Times Square, aiming to return to the area’s earlier focus on business and the arts. To do this, he and newly appointed Police Commissioner William Bratton pursued low-level crimes, using the principle of “policing broken windows” to target visible signs of social disorder. While crime rates fell, Giuliani also reacted to his policies, which were perceived to disproportionately target racial minorities.
As mayor in 2001, Giuliani was widely celebrated for his response to the September 11 terrorist attacks. Many praised his leadership role, which greatly improved his approval ratings. Giuliani was then known as the “Mayor of America”; In addition, he was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, and was awarded an honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II in 2002. Despite these honors, Giuliani was later criticized for his eagerness to downplay the residual health effects of the attacks and reopen the Wall. Street.
Career after mayor
In 2002, Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners, a security consulting business. Three years later, he joined a law firm that was eventually renamed Bracewell & Giuliani. On the political front, Giuliani ran a losing campaign for the Republican Party’s 2008 presidential nomination.
Donald Trump’s personal lawyer
In April of 2018, Giuliani joined Donald Trump’s personal legal team. He soon gained enormous notoriety for his actions, particularly for his involvement in corruption and profiteering on the part of the President. In late 2019, he was placed under federal investigation for violating lobbying laws and serving as a central figure in the Trump-Ukraine scandal. Following Biden’s presidential victory in November 2020, Giuliani represented Trump in a number of ridiculous lawsuits in an attempt to reverse the election results. Famously, he appeared in a bizarre press conference held between a landscaping business and a sex shop, and a plethora of false and dismissed claims about electoral fraud, rigged voting machines and a global communist conspiracy Make. Along with his many lies, he was involved in instigating the right-wing rioters who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. As a result, Giuliani’s license to practice law in New York State and the District of Columbia was revoked.
Giuliani has been married three times and has two children. In 1968 he married second cousin Regina Peruggi. Even though they didn’t divorce until 1983, the pair split in the mid-70s.
His second wife was Donna Hanover, with whom he has two children, son Andrew and daughter Caroline. Rudy and Donna filed for divorce in 2000 and a very public fight ensued that involved Giuliani’s infidelity with his future wife, Judith Nathan, who was banned from meeting his children until the divorce was final. She and Nathan were married in 2010 after a battle with prostate cancer. They separated in September 2018. Subsequently, Giuliani revealed that he was in a relationship with nurse practitioner Maria Ryan, who was accused of being her mistress during her marriage to Nathan.
