President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that his team will be going after state legislatures in key states to make a bid to send up their own electors to the Electoral College.
The former New York City mayor said they are lobbying state legislatures in tandem with their lawsuits because they “don’t have a lot of time,” according to his interview with Newsmax.
“We’re doing both, with equal speed and enthusiasm, and taking advantage of which one gives us the hearing the quickest. And which one will work fastest for us,” said Giuliani on the program. “Because we don’t have a lot of time. We’ve got a lot of evidence; we don’t have a lot of time. And we’re facing a major censorship, so it’s very hard to get this information out to the public.”
Giuliani was likely referring to the near-total media blackout on some of the allegations produced by the team in recent days about election fraud and irregularities. During a hearing on election fraud with GOP Pennsylvania State senators, few corporate media outlets carried livestreams of their event, which heard testimony from witnesses who said they saw mass irregularities in the Keystone State.
As a result, according to the former mayor, ”the public has only a small idea of the kind of evidence we have.”
Giuliani said that he has more affidavits from election observers who were prevented from watching the vote-tabulation process in some areas and of mail-in ballots being “cured,” which means poll workers were allowed to correct information such as a voter’s signature or counting a ballot without an envelope.
”The situation in Michigan was worse than the situation in Pennsylvania,” Giuliani claimed in the Newsmax interview. ”The situation in Wisconsin was outrageous. I mean they have all these absentee ballots without applications. In Nevada, they used a machine that basically didn’t work and let every signature go through, even though it’s illegal to use a machine.”
He added: “I mean, they cheated in all the places that were critical to them. And you know they did, because Trump was way ahead on the night of the election. It’s impossible that [Democratic nominee Joe] Biden would have come back in every single one of those places. Impossible.”
The secretaries of state in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Georgia have denied there is evidence of voter fraud or irregularities—or at least not enough to overturn the result of the election. Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency chief said the election on Nov. 3 was the “most secure” in American history.
After the hearing in Pennsylvania, some State senators suggested they will make efforts to reclaim their authority in determining electors. GOP Sen. Doug Mastriano told “War Room” on Nov. 27 that a growing number of Republicans, who control the House and Senate in Pennsylvania, are warming up to the idea of taking back power from the governor and secretary of state.
Giuliani and other Trump lawyers, meanwhile, will hold another hearing in front of the Arizona State Legislature on Monday, Nov. 30, to hear witnesses in Arizona speak about alleged irregularities or fraud. Arizona’s House and Senate are also GOP-controlled.
The Electoral College meets to cast their vote on Dec. 14, while the Joint Session of Congress will read the votes on Jan. 6, 2021.
