Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, reiterated today in Philadelphia, “What I’m saying to you is not a single one of these mail-in ballots were inspected as the law required. Even when a court order was obtained, to allow the Republican inspectors to get six feet closer there. They move the people counting the ballots six further feet away. It’s really simple. If you have nothing to hide, let people watch.”
Giuliani was speaking in a news conference at an empty parking lot in the northeast part of Philadelphia where several members of President Trump’s campaign legal team put forward several individuals who said they witnessed systemic impropriety by local election officials who stopped them from their legally guaranteed right to watch the counting of ballots.
Giuliani, as well as senior campaign adviser Corey Lewandowski, who also attended the event, remained adamant that they believe rampant fraud had taken place in Philadelphia. The Trump campaign is prepared to file several lawsuits on Monday, alleging widespread voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
Protests raged outside the event as supporters of former Vice President Joe Biden clashed with others who were on hand to hear the latest updates from the president’s legal team, with police regularly intervening in order to break up confrontations.
From all indications, the Trump administration is not accepting any defeat at this time.
