The former New York City mayor has been leading the Trump campaign’s legal battle to expose alleged fraud in the 2020 election in several states.
Giuliani, earlier in the morning, spoke with host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” giving an update over the Trump campaign’s continuing election legal challenges.
The legal team’s efforts to urge state lawmakers to override the results of the election and appoint their own electors is “furthest along” in Georgia. Other efforts are ongoing in Michigan and Arizona, Giuliani said. He also pointed to video footage from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, which he said gives a “pretty good idea” of how cheating took place. Continued Below
“They spent the rest of the night counting the secret ballots, clearly secret phony ballots in which they excluded all Republicans, all Democrats, all law enforcement,” Giuliani said. “And I think that ended up being about 148,000 to 7,000; 148,000 for Biden, 7,000 for Trump.”
He claimed that Georgia has seen other forms of election fraud, including backdating, ballots being uninspected and people voting illegally from out of state, voting as illegal immigrants or as the deceased, though those claims of widespread fraud have yet to be proven in a court of law.
Giuliani said that Georgia’s state legislature is “disgusted” by the evidence being put forward and, as a result, has started a petition to hold their own session– the first state legislature to do so.
“This is a constitutional role that the Founding Fathers gave to our legislatures,” the former New York City mayor said. “They’re the ones who are supposed to select the president, not the governors, not the Board of Elections. They’re the ones who have the constitutional obligation to decide on the electors. So in Georgia, they’re going to do that.” Video Below
Michigan and Arizona are also considering taking these same steps to action, Giuliani added, noting it could “very well” be joining Georgia to decide on their electors.
