    US election: Trump lawyers’ wild press conference

    Hair dye ran down Rudy Giuliani’s face during an extraordinary press conference where Donald Trump’s legal team claimed they would overturn the election.


    NOVEMBER 20, 20208:30AM

    Donald Trump’s legal team have held an extraordinary press conference to make their case for overturning the election results, claiming the election was stolen by “crooks” and infiltrated by “Communist money”.

    The President’s legal team, headed by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Former Assistant US Attorney Sidney Powell, along with lawyers Jenna Ellis, Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing, outlined various cases the campaign was bringing in key swing states where Mr Trump narrowly lost to Joe Biden.

    Mr Giuliani, hair dye dripping down the side of his face at one point, repeated claims of massive absentee ballot fraud, including during the counting in key Democrat-controlled urban centres where Republican poll watchers say they were illegally prevented from observing the process.






    “In the states we have indicated in red, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada and Arizona, we have more than double the number of votes needed to overturn the election in terms of provable, illegal ballots,” Mr Giuliani told reporters at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington DC.

    “Look at the lawsuits, look at what’s alleged, look at the affidavits. We have a thousand at least.”
    Brandishing affidavits from witnesses, Mr Giuliani berated the assembled media, telling them it was “your job to read these things and not falsely report that there’s no evidence”.

    Citing four witnesses in the campaign’s Michigan case, he said they described an incident “that in any other circumstances would have been on the front page of your newspapers” if it weren’t for the “irrational, pathological hatred you have for the President”.
    “What they swear to is that at 4.30am, a truck pulled up to the Detroit centre where they were counting ballots,” he said.
    “The people thought it was food so they all ran to the truck. It wasn’t food – it was thousands and thousands of ballots, and the ballots were in garbage cans, they were in paper bags, they were in carboard boxes. They were taken into the centre, they were put on a number of tables.”

    Mr Giuliani said the witnesses swore that “every ballot they could see, every thing they could hear, these were ballots for Biden, and when they saw a ballot, these were ballots only for Biden, meaning there was no down-ticket”.

    “Many of them didn’t have anything on the outer envelope because these ballots were produced very quickly, very swiftly, and they’re estimated to be minimum of 60,000, maximum 100,000,” he said. “Many of them were triple-counted, meaning they were put into the counting machine once, twice, three times.”

    The lawyers also doubled down on wild allegations of fraud by voting machine company Dominion, which Mr Trump last week sensationally claimed had “switched 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide”.

    “We use largely a Venezuelan voting machine, in essence, to count our vote,” Mr Giuliani said.
    “If we let this happen we’re going to become Venezuela. We cannot let this happen to us. We cannot allow these crooks, because that’s what they are, to steal an election from the American people.”

    Ms Powell, who focused on the Dominion allegations, said what “we are really dealing with here and uncovering more by the day is the massive influence of Communist money through Venezuela, Cuba and likely China in the interference with our elections here in the US”.

    “The Dominion Voting Systems, the Smartmatic software and the software that goes in other computerised voting systems here as well, were created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost another election,” he said.
    “We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez while he was being briefed on how it worked, he saw it operate to make sure the election came out his way. That was the express purpose of creating the software.”

    Ms Powell said as soon as the witness “saw multiple states shut down the (counting) on the night of the election, he knew the same thing was happening here”. She alleged that “one of its most characteristic features is its ability to flip votes”.

    “It can set and run an algorithm, that probably ran all over the country, to take a certain percentage of votes from President Trump and flip them to Biden, which we might never had uncovered had the votes for President Trump not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it broke the algorithm that had been plugged into the system,” she said.

    “That’s what caused them to have to shut down in the states they shut down in, that’s when they came in the back door with all the mail-in ballots, many of which they had actually fabricated.”

    Dominion and Smartmatic have vehemently denied the allegations.

    Mr Trump, who has not been seen in public in several days, tweeted to promote the press conference. “An open and shut case of voter fraud. Massive numbers!” he said.

    President-elect Biden is due to address the media shortly.https://www.news.com.au/world/north-...804a33075f4784

    I believe it is December 14th.

    It works a little like Thanksgiving in that it is something like the first monday after the second Wednesday in December.
    I could be wrong

    Well I wish they'd get it over with before Trump finds some loophole that allows him to nominate his own pet electors which I'm sure I read somewhere if this and that under certain conditions it's possible.

    Despite all of these allegations and witnesses, Trump's lawyers can't seem to produce ANY evidence that will convince a judge, ANY JUDGE, to rule in their favor! If they could win a single case, I would be impressed, but this so-called evidence doesn't seem to hold up in court.

    They got a few thousand uncounted ballots in Pennsylvania thrown out. So no change to the result.

    That is their sole "win".

    giuliani is primarily motivated by money (the $20,000 per day story is 100% real), but he also hates biden for single-handedly derailing his presidential campaign in 2008......"noun, verb, 9/11".

    and like the leader of a deeply fringe cult, trump has the ability to compel his followers to self-immolate.
    i wonder if they're aware that they're setting themselves on fire at the time, or if it dawns on them later.

    You couldn’t make this shit up.

    In the meanwhile, Nero ( Trump ) fiddles while Rome ( U.S. of A. ) burns.

    The word is laughing at all the clowns.

    ...doubtful: the word is probably fascinated by the twin spectacles of Giuliani's nonsensical press conferences (with the A Team of salivating lawyers behind him) and the silence of Republican politicians as tRump uses the power of the presidency to grab what he wants...what the word will eventually laugh at, imo, is all the books about to be written by each Republican senator who was secretly against tRump and just waiting for the right moment to declare outrage...clearly, not enough evangelicals have died from covid-19 yet...

    They vote on December 14th.

    Congress counts the votes and certifies the winner on January 6th.

    There is another deadline in between.

    Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew tests positive for Covid after attending press conference


    Rudy Giuliani-12907132-3x2-xlarge-jpg

    (Twitter: @AndrewHGiuliani)


    Key Points

    • Andrew Giuliani, the son of Trump campaign top lawyer Rudy Giuliani and a special assistant to President Donald Trump, said he tested positive for coronavirus.
    • A day earlier, he attended a crowded press conference led by his father, who was not wearing a mask as he claimed without evidence that widespread ballot fraud had rigged the election for Joe Biden.
    • Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis both tested negative for Covid-19, Ellis said on Twiter.

    ... and the News we were all waiting for

    Trump says Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for coronavirus



    Key Points

    • President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus, Trump announced on Sunday.
    • Giuliani, 76, is in a high-risk group for Covid-19. It’s unclear whether or not Giuliani has symptoms.
    • Giuliani is the latest person in the president’s inner circle to contract Covid-19. His diagnosis comes roughly two weeks after his son Andrew Giuliani, who serves as a special assistant to Trump, also tested positive.

    My first thought when I read this news headline (above) was: So, does that mean he has Covid or not?
    And I wondered right away if the trumpers think it's true?
    Cause of course you can't believe much of what DT says now can you?
