President Donald Trump’s legal team held a press conference Thursday claiming that their client won the 2020 election in a landslide and that they are going to “prove it” in court.
Trump lawyer and former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani said he and colleagues that include Sidney Powell and Lin Wood have found more than twice the number of fraudulent ballots in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona and other swing states as what are needed to erase Joe Biden’s apparent lead in those states and flip them for Trump.
Most states have not yet certified their election results, but unofficial vote counts reported to the media give Biden leads in those and other states, with Biden having an unofficial allocation of 290 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.
In Pennsylvania where Biden leads by about 70,000 votes, Giuliani alleged that 682,770 ballots “were put in, cast, and weren’t inspected.” Those votes should be voided and would flip the state to Trump, he argued.
Massive fraud alleged by Trump legal team
“The number of voter fraud cases in Philadelphia could fill a library,” Giuliani said.
In key states Georgia, Arizona and Wisconsin, Biden’s unofficial “lead” over Trump is between 11,000 and 21,000 votes, which represents less than one-half percent of all the votes cast in that state. A recount is underway in Georgia and more than 1,000 votes have been found for Trump, but Trump lawyers have called it meaningless because signatures are not being verified.
In Michigan, where Biden leads by more than 140,000, Giuliani said he had affidavits from two Republican poll watchers that Democrats thought had left the ballot counting area in the middle of the night.
At 4:30 a.m., the watchers jointly claim, a truck delivered “thousands and thousands” of ballots that were only marked for Joe Biden. Many of those ballots were run through voting machines at least three times, they said.
Giuliani said the people giving affidavits are not being identified publicly yet because they don’t want to be targeted with threats or pressure to recant their statements.
Ellis unloads on “biased” media
After Giuliani’s statement, Jenna Ellis unloaded on the media for their biased coverage of the election and repeated claims that Trump has “no evidence” of voter fraud. She said that it takes time to take witness statements and present arguments in court.
“You are not unbiased jurors and until you step out of your role as a journalist and actually go into a courtroom and you are a judge on a bench, that has sworn an oath to be unbiased in our separation of powers, then your opinion doesn’t matter,” Ellis said.
“You, the press, should cover this fairly and should know that this matters to election integrity and it matters to the future of our nation,” she said.
