President Donald Trump’s lead attorney Rudy Giuliani and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Nov. 10 in interviews with Fox that the campaign has a wealth of evidence that could prove widespread fraud in the 2020 U.S. election, as well as hundreds of witnesses willing to testify in court.
Giuliani, the storied former New York City mayor, said many people have already given sworn testimony, and late in the evening of Nov. 11, he tweeted that “Today the @realDonaldTrump campaign sued to invalidate hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots in the Western District of Michigan.”
On Nov. 13, Giuliani spoke about “sworn evidence of pervasive voter fraud.”
“They excluded Republicans from being able to observe the mail-in ballots,” Giuliani said, describing the allegations made by lawsuits in the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Giuliani had also stated that Trump’s team had enough evidence to overturn the results in states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, commenting that the “fake news media” has been deliberately ignoring this evidence.
‘Thousands of pieces of evidence’
“There are thousands of pieces of evidence of hard fraud. They just don’t publish it. They have an Iron Curtain. If you show them an affidavit signed by someone that says they observed fraud, they don’t put it on,” Giuliani said on his podcast Common Sense.
“We now are up to a count of about 650,000 ballots that are unlawful ballots that were cast in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh,” he told Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs. “What’s being said in the mass media, that we have no evidence, is a complete, absolute lie, just like they’ve been lying for years.”
Kayleigh McEnany, speaking to Fox the same day, said the Trump campaign had gathered 234 pages of sworn testimony from witnesses concerning alleged voter fraud in Wayne county, Michigan.
“These are real people, real allegations, signed with notaries, who are alleging the following, among other contentions,” she said. “They are saying that there was a batch of ballots where 60 percent had the same signature. They’re saying that 35 ballots had no voter record, but they were counted anyway, that 50 ballots were run multiple times through a tabulation machine, one woman said her son was deceased but nevertheless somehow voted.”
McEnany also cited the affidavits as describing how election monitors were prevented from watching the ballot-counting process. “Our poll watchers were threatened with racial harassment, pushed out of the way, and Democratic challengers were handing out documents saying how to distract GOP challengers,” she said, referring to a single county in Michigan.
Trump received more than 70 million votes in this election, a record for a president seeking a second term.
“The president wants justice for the 72 million plus forgotten men and women of this country,” McEnany said.
‘We are in a constitutional crisis’
Lucian Lincoln “Lin” Wood, a barrister known for his high-profile defenses, recently joined the campaign’s legal team. At a press conference by Republican Party officials in Georgia, he defended the president, saying “it’s time for us to fight for Donald Trump.”
Wood’s most famous case in recent years was his defense of 17-year-old high school student Nick Sandmann, who sued CNN and the Washington Post for defamation and obtained a large sum of money and out-of-court settlement. He recently also took on the defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who shot and killed two men in self-defense during violent riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Wood said at the Nov. 6 press conference that while Trump had been close to a landslide victory, “all of a sudden, every network … started lying to the American public.”
“They took a victory from victory from Donald Trump and they called it a lie. They took a defeat from Joe Biden and lied and said he won,” he said.
Wood believes the United States is facing a constitutional crisis.
“This was nothing more than a revolution,” he said. “They’re trying to take away your rights, they’re trying to take away your constitution, they’re trying to take away, ultimately, your freedom.”
