The Trump campaign has ramped up efforts to challenge the integrity of the 2020 presidential election, with no less than President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, leading the charge.
During a news conference, Giuliani alleged that there was a “centralized” plan to execute voter fraud across the United States. However, he has yet to present any direct evidence of such claims.
“What I’m describing to you is a massive fraud,” said Giuliani with other members of Trump’s legal team standing beside him. The Trump campaign also repeatedly criticized the news media’s coverage of the election.
“I’m in charge of this investigation, with Sidney [Powell] and the people you see here,” Giuliani said when asked who helms the legal team. According to Giuliani, there was “pressure to go as fast as we can” as ballot certification deadlines come to a close.
Giuliani, who is a former New York City mayor, cited the incidents that took place in key battleground state Pennsylvania where GOP election watchers were barred from observing the counting process because they were kept too far away.
While a judge heeded Republican’s call that their observers be allowed six feet away from the counting at a center in Philadelphia, the decision was overturned after officials intervened.
Giuliani also took a swipe at Pennsylvania’s move to allow some absentee voters to fix any error with their ballots. He cited some sworn affidavits from poll workers who spoke about instructions from supervisors in Pennsylvania and another battleground state, Michigan.
