Trump legal team delivers an opening argument to present voter fraud case
The legal team of President Donald Trump spoke at a press conference Thursday for an hour and a half about allegations of voter fraud and election misconduct.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who led the lengthy televised conference, claimed that the legal team has “enough [evidence] to overturn any election,” saying that he had “hundreds” of affidavits to back up its claims but that he couldn’t show them to reporters. Additionally, Giuliani vowed to launch major suits in Arizona and Georgia and said they’re eyeing New Mexico too.
Furthermore, the former New York City mayor also said at the high-octane presser that the president and his campaign still have “multiple pathways to victory.”
He also alleged that widespread fraud was carried out by “Democratic bosses” as part of a supposed nationally coordinated effort.
“It’s not a singular voter fraud in one state,” Giuliani said. “This pattern repeats itself in a number of states, almost exactly the same pattern, which any experienced investigator prosecutor, which suggests that there was a plan — from a centralized place to execute these various acts of voter fraud, specifically focused on big cities, and specifically focused on, as you would imagine, big cities controlled by Democrats, and particularly if they focused on big cities that have a long history of corruption.”
At a different point, Giuliani accused Biden of committing crimes.
“He doesn’t get asked questions about all the evidence of the crimes that he committed,” he said.
At the presser, other members of the president’s legal team also spoke.
One of them, Sidney Powell, pushed previous claims that the technology used by the election technology firm Dominion Voting Systems was deeply influenced by authoritarian regimes in China and Cuba, but most notably in Venezuela.
Dominion was used in at least 24 states this past election. Both Dominion and Smartmatic have said publicly that they do not own one another.
“We have evidence that this came from Venezuela, from Nicolas Maduro, from Hugo Chavez, from Cuba, and from China which has significant interests in Venezuela,” Powell said.
“We have no idea how many Democratic officials paid to have the election rigged in their favor,” she added. “This is a massive, well-coordinated effort. It is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.”
After that, she also said that “There should never be another election – I don’t care even for dog catcher – in this country using machines by Dominion and Smartmatic.”
Giuliani also echoed this claim, saying that the election had been rigged by “a company owned by affiliates of Chavez and Maduro.”

FL Governor DeSantis announces Presidential run via Twitter to over half a million live viewers
Republican Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, is officially running for president of the United States. DeSantis took the unique approach to announce his bid for the 2024 presidential election at 6 p.m. ET during an online Twitter event hosted by the Twitter CEO himself, Elon Musk.
DeSantis told the nation to “buckle up” and prepare for “our great American comeback.” The event began roughly 30 minutes late, as the streaming “feed struggled under the weight of more than a half million users” writes National Review. “As the event launched, Musk and Sacks could be heard talking about their servers ‘melting’ and ‘straining.’ The audio feed went in and out and sounded distorted at times.”
“I am running for president of the United States to lead our great American comeback,” DeSantis began in his interview with Musk and tech entrepreneur David Sacks.
“We know our country is going in the wrong direction. We see it with our eyes and we feel it in our bones,” he said, listing national woes, including the border crisis and spiking crime. He took a swipe at President Joe Biden, saying the 80-year-old “lacks vigor” and “flounders in the face of our nation’s challenges, and he takes his cues from the woke mob.”
“American decline is not inevitable. It’s a choice,” DeSantis said, calling for a restoration of sanity to the nation, including fiscal and economic sanity. “This also means replacing the woke mind virus with reality, facts, and enduring principles.”
