Donald Trump’s longtime attorney Rudy Giuliani has in court Imputed a nationwide conspiracy to fraudulent elections to democratically run cities with no evidence. Giuliani’s remarks on Tuesday (local time) are part of attempts by US President Donald Trump’s campaign team to prevent the US state from officially confirming the election result, which was rated as a victory for Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
Former New York City Mayor Giuliani spent most of his time claiming there was one without evidence extensive system in Pennsylvania and elsewhere that Trump stole the election in the battleground states where Joe Biden was victorious.
At the hour-long trial, District Judge Matthew Brann told Giuliani that to agree would mean disenfranchising more than 6.8 million Pennsylvania people who had cast their vote. When asked by the judge how such an outcome could somehow be justified, Giuliani stated that the “remedy” corresponds to the “injury”.
The lawsuit revolves around a complaint that Philadelphia and six democratically controlled US counties allowed corrections to incorrect postal voting documents that otherwise would not have been counted due to minor defects such as a missing signature. It is unclear how many ballot papers there could be. It is unlikely that it could be enough to overturn the election result.
