On Wednesday during a Pennsylvania senate hearing at Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump addressed lawmakers via a phone call, making more allegations about voter fraud during the November 3 election. The president continuously asserted that the election result has to be “turned over” as a result of some evidence that shows that the election was rigged to favor President-elect Joe Biden.
The president was, however, unable to provide the evidence which according to him is pouring in right now. The legal team of the Trump campaign, headed by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer appeared before lawmakers in a bid to discredit the outcome of the election which they have continuously claimed was rigged to favor Biden.
Making allegations about dead people voting, suppression of Trump supporters during voting, and other forms of electoral fraud, the president addressed the lawmakers for 10 minutes during which he made unfounded claims and, as it has been his practice since the election, refused to provide any solid evidence to back up his claims.
“We have enough evidence to turn the election over, all we need right now is an unbiased judge who will listen to our case and carefully consider the evidence which continues to pour in as we speak,” the president said during the phone call.
The president, his legal team, and his supporters have filed over 30 complaints in different states alleging the outcome of the election – with Biden projected as the winner with 306 electoral college votes – was in one way or the other manipulated against the Republican presidential nominee. Even though a bulk of the cases have been dismissed, withdrawn, or denied, the president and his team are still plowing on that millions of ballots should be overturned.
Georgia, Michigan, as well as Pennsylvania, and other battleground states have certified the results of the election prompting the president to begin the transition process after he delayed it for weeks. On Monday, the administration started the transition process, providing the Biden transition office with classified documents and resources.
Trump also appreciated the efforts of Giuliani, who is also the former mayor of New York, applauding his efforts in the legal battle to overturn the presidential election results.
“I would also like to appreciate the good works of Rudy Giuliani who has so far shown the bravery to stand with me despite the backlash and intimidation,” Trump said towards the end of the phone call. “Your work as the mayor of New York which has so far so good been unparalleled is nothing compared to what you’re doing now to save our great country.”
The president’s statement negates reports that he has been quite frustrated with the outcome of the election results and the subsequent legal battle and has blamed his legal team for their efforts or lack of one in the courts.
