Update: Nearly 6,000 lawyers and law students call for disbarment proceedings against Cruz and Hawley http://hill.cm/RiAPyff
At least 5,000 law school students and alumni have signed a petition urging that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) be disbarred for their attempt to urge the Senate to reject the Electoral College vote making Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
The petition, organized by students and alumni of Yale Law School — considered the country’s most elite institution of legal scholarship — urges that the state bar organizations of Missouri, Texas, and the District of Columbia remove the law licenses of the two Senators in question.
Co-signatories include Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe, one of the key legal advisers of the Democrats’ failed impeachment against President Donald Trump in 2019-20.
