‘Did you all watch My Cousin Vinny?’ Rudy Giuliani presents his ‘evidence’ for massive voting fraud at bizarre press conference claiming ‘it’s as frequent as getting beaten up at a Philadelphia Eagles game’
Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani delivered an extended monologue meant to reveal evidence for a ‘massive’ vote fraud where he quoted ‘My Cousin Vinny’ and claimed he had ‘hundreds’ of sworn affidavits he would not read aloud.
After suffering dozens of legal defeats on President Trump’s multi-state case to throw out ballots, Giuliani resorted to an extended rant about alleged fraud to reporters packed in tightly at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington.
‘Did you all watch My Cousin Vinny?’ he said, seeking to make the point that election observers were kept too far away from ballots during the count.
Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani delivered a rambling monologue Thursday where he asserted ‘massive fraud’ in the election, ‘not a little teeny one’
‘These people were further away than My Cousin Vinny was from the witness,’ he said.
Giuliani, the former New York mayor, even acted out part of a scene played by actor Joe Pesci. He called it one of his favorite crime films.
His charges ran the gamut, and he spoke before a team of lawyers and a sign that was meant to show Trump’s ‘multiple paths to victory.’ It highlighted states all carried by President-elect Joe Bien.
‘What I’m describing for you is a massive fraud. It isn’t a little teeny one,’ he said.
‘The president way ahead on election night,’ Giuliani said.
He expressed shock at how the vote changed as absentee ballots came in.
‘We have statisticians willing to testify,’ Giuliani said.
He blasted Detroit and Philadelphia, cities with concentrations of black voters where he said there was fraud in elections going back decades.
‘Each one of these cities are cities that are controlled by Democrats. Which means they can get away with whatever they want to do,’ he claimed.
‘Unfortunately they have some friendly judges that will issue ridiculously irrational opinions just to come out in their favor,’ he said, days after losing in the Pennsylvania state supreme court.
‘Even Tanzania and places that you wouldn’t think of had rules about inspectors,’ he said, without explaining why it would be surprising for the East African nation to observe the vote count.
He also attacked the media, who sat silently as he spoke for more than 30 minutes and counting.
‘I know you keep reporting falsely that we have no evidence,’ he said. Then he read a single affidavit of Jesse Jacob alleging fraud at the Detroit center where votes were counted.
A judge found the claims, while serious, were ‘generalized’ and had ‘no date, location, frequency, or names of employees.’
But it was the only one he shared. ”We have 100 more of these. I can’t show them to you.’ He said it was because people who filled them out would be ‘harassed.’
‘The American people are entitled to know this. You don’t have a right to keep it from them,’ he lectured the press.
‘If you count the lawful votes, Trump won Wisconsin by a good margin,’ he said.
He promised additional suits in Arizona, Georgia, New Mexico, and other states.
‘If you count the legal votes in Pennsylvania, he won by about 300,000 votes,’ he said.
‘We have very significant fraud allegations in the state of New Mexico,’ Giuliani said of the state that went for Biden.
But he held back information.
‘This had to be planned in advance,’ he said, complaining that observers were put in ‘pens’ and ‘corrals.’
