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.”

There is ‘repeated evidence’ of non-citizens voting

There is “repeated evidence” of non-citizens voting, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily, discussing the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act.

“Let me just say this about the overall state of the election issue,” Roy began, explaining that “we’ve got repeated evidence of those who are here illegally — or, or whether they’re here legally — but non-citizens voting.”

“We’ve got studies demonstrating that. We’ve got evidence that it may have tipped the election for Al Franken and his election back in Minnesota. Objective studies have showed…Virginia tossing out 1,500 registered voters just last year. I can go through a laundry list. We’ve got local jurisdictions — Oakland, San Francisco, our nation’s capital in Washington, DC, and New York City — who are registering voters specifically for their state and local elections, but we know that they don’t work hard to make sure they’re not voting in federal elections,” he said, noting that “federal law prohibits [and] limits the ability of states to be able to check and ensure citizenship, so much so that the state of Arizona has to run two systems — one for their state local elections and one for their federal elections.”

“They’re literally bifurcated because they want to ensure citizenship for their state and local elections, but they’re not allowed to for federal elections. Therefore, we need to fix the problem,” he said.

Breitbart News adds:

Further, Roy said, because of the Motor Voter Act — the National Voter Registration Act — passed in the 1990s, the courts have interpreted federal laws to limit the state’s ability to “determine and collect the information necessary for determining and checking citizenship.”

Essentially, Roy said the U.S. has set up a system that requires federal agencies to push out the forms, encouraging individuals to register to vote. And while they ask one to identify if they are a citizen, and while federal law requires one to be a citizen to vote in federal elections, the congressman said there is nothing there to actually check citizenship.

The SAVE Act would help address these issues and correct what Roy described as the “glitch,” making it so every state would require anyone applying to register to vote to prove their citizenship.

“By doing that, though, it is correcting the glitch. It also goes through and it addresses some of the issues that have been complicated. There are states, for example, like North Dakota, which does not have voter registration at all, okay? So they can just show up to vote and don’t have registration…They have their own rules there about what you have to present in order just to vote. And that’s obviously a less populated state than, say, California or Texas or New York or Florida. But, so, we adapt and try to adjust to help with those kinds of situations. But, overall, the purpose of the bill is exactly as you just described, pretty simple,” Roy said. This is a bipartisan issue with massive support.
