Along with many supporters of President Donald Trump, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Monday that he was disappointed by Trump’s legal teams’ Thursday press conference that promised “bombshells” but did not deliver anything as big as what was promised.
The highly anticipated press conference was led by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who spoke about instances of fraud in Michigan and Pennsylvania that the team feels tipped the vote totals wrongfully to Democrat Joe Biden. Sidney Powell then accused Dominion voting machines of switching hundreds of thousands of votes to Biden from Trump.
As Limbaugh pointed out, the claims presented at the press conference sounded great, but since then, the team has not presented any evidence backing up their claims.
“You call a gigantic press conference like that, one that lasts an hour, and you announce massive bombshells, then you better have some bombshells,” he said on his radio show.
“There has to be something more”
“I understand — I’m the one that’s been telling everybody this stuff doesn’t happen at warp speed, at lightspeed the way cases are made for presentation in court, but if you’re going to do a press conference like that with the promise of blockbusters, then there has to be something more than what that press conference delivered,” Limbaugh continued.
People on the right now fear that Powell does not have the evidence she claims to have, which was probably the only way to overturn enough votes to give Trump a victory.
On Sunday, Giuliani and Jenna Ellis released a letter stating that Powell wasn’t part of Trump’s official legal team and that she was “practicing law on her own.”
In response, Powell said she was arguing “for the people” and would keep fighting. Powell plans to file her Dominion lawsuit on Friday and is still confident it can overturn the current election result for Biden.
Limbaugh was still hopeful that Trump could emerge as the president for four more years, but said it would require proof to be presented sooner rather than later. “Time is of the essence as it is speedily vanishing,” he said.
States certifying votes
Michigan and Pennslyvania, two states hotly contested by Trump’s campaign, have certified their states’ vote totals despite fraud allegations.
A dismissal of a court challenge in Pennsylvania was lauded by Republicans there because it brings the case one step closer to the Supreme Court.
But will a divided country accept a president decided by the courts and not by them?
