President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, took forward the president’s voter fraud claims on Thursday, baselessly alleging during a baseless news conference that the fraud was nationally coordinated.
The president’s legal team already rejected claims of voter fraud, baseless allegations of corrupt and hackable voting machines, interference by elections by foreign communists, and even references to Antifa. The former mayor of New York City also offered alternative election results for swing states, arguing that the president had a viable path to a second term.
“This is not an eccentric voter fraud in a state,” Giuliani said, speaking at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. “This pattern repeats itself in many states, almost the same pattern as any experienced investigative prosecutor suggests. There was a plan – from a centralized location, to execute these various acts of voter fraud. There is a focus on big cities in particular, and in particular, as you would imagine, big cities are controlled by Democrats, and especially if they focus on big cities There is a long history of corruption. “
There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, being coordinated or isolated, and the Trump campaign has repeatedly thrown its claims out of court for lack of evidence. On Thursday, the president’s legal team filled the area with false claims.
“I know the crimes, I can smell them. You don’t need to sniff it, I can prove it to you 18 different ways. I can prove to you that it won by 300,000 votes, Pennsylvania.” You think he won Michigan, maybe 50,000 votes, “Giuliani continued.
The president and Giuliani have repeatedly alleged that the fraud was coming from large Democratic cities with large black populations, including Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta and Philadelphia. Accepting results in mostly white areas. At Thursday’s news conference, Giuliani doubled down on it.
“And I often said, I speculate sarcastically, but it’s true. The only surprise I’ve found is that Philadelphia didn’t cheat in this election. Because for the last 60 years, they’ve just Cheated about. Single election. You can say the same thing about Detroit, “he said.
Juliani promised major promises in Georgia and Arizona, saying they were also looking at New Mexico; He promised “hundreds” of affidavits simultaneously but could not show them to journalists.
Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell, who, too, claimed a large conspiracy of changed votes.
“It affects votes around the world, around the world, and all kinds of mass interests globally – dictators, corporations, you name it, against everyone, except President Trump, and us in the United States. People should be amazed, “she said.
The President’s legal team repeatedly rebuked journalists for noting in their work that there was no evidence of claims made by them. Trump’s legal adviser Jenna Ellis said there was not enough patience for reporters, as court cases take time.
“This is not a ‘Law and Order’ episode, where everything is wrapped up in 60 minutes,” she said.
