Donald Trump’s legal team has been working for weeks now in an attempt to find a path to victory for the incumbent Republican President, and Rudy Giuliani believes that they may have just found it.
Or, more specifically, Giuliani has now suggested that there are several paths for Trump to retake the White House, and he outlined them during a frantic and bombastic press conference on Thursday.
“What I’m describing to you is a massive fraud,” Giuliani said at the Capitol Hill news conference with other members of Trump’s legal team, who repeatedly lashed out at the news media and accused them of treating their efforts unfairly.
At one point, Giuliani repeatedly told one reporter: “You’re lying.”
Rudy’s claims were vast.
He cited sworn affidavits from cases in Pennsylvania and Michigan from poll workers who spoke about instructions from supervisors. One affidavit said that workers in Pennsylvania were instructed to assign ballots without names to random people, resulting in thousands of people in Pittsburgh showing up to the polls to find that votes had been cast in their names.
Another affidavit said that a supervisorin Michigan instructed workers to change the dates on absentee ballots to show that they arrived earlier than they had. An affidavit also claimed that workers were told not to request photo identification from Michigan voters, even though state law requires it.
Giuliani also said that approximately 100,000 absentee ballots in Wisconsin should have been deemed invalid because there were no applications for them. President-elect Joe Biden leads President Trump in that state by roughly 20,000 votes.
“If you count the lawful votes, Trump won Wisconsin,” Giuliani said.
Rudy and the team repeatedly implored the media outlets represented in the room not to ignore their case or the claims, with Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis describing several of the infotainment networks as “fake news” as well.
