Rudy Giuliani gives "evidence" of election fraud at a press conference



The Trump campaign has made Pennsylvania a centerpiece of its legal endeavors in hopes of removing Joe Biden's 20 votes. The state was a focus of pre-election concern given its vastly expanded postal ballot papers, court rulings on the state's acceptance of postal ballot papers after election day, and predictions that voters would mishandle postal votes or not put their ballot papers in a tamper-evident wrapper before they did return it.

The Trump campaign has raised public charges of fraud and irregularities, while lawsuits focused on restrictions on election observers have been filed with no immediate result.

Amid a series of chaotic moves on Trump's legal team, the president hired personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to oversee his efforts. The former New York mayor appeared in federal court on Tuesday, November 17. He compiled a comprehensive allegation of a fraud conspiracy allegedly carried out by Democrats and said there was "widespread national election fraud". He added, "You stole a choice." Giuliani also admitted to federal judge Matthew Brann: "This is not a fraud case." The Trump campaign had removed numerous allegations from its initial filing and now argued that there were constitutional violations because some districts allowed voters to "cure" their postal ballots while others did not. "It's just a shame," said Mark Aronchick, who represents the electoral authority of Allegheny County in the county, which also includes Pittsburgh.

Even when Giuliani was on trial, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled 5-2 against the Trump campaign after the Trump camp argued that election observers weren't close enough to watch the election count and were not "meaningful." “Received. The 5-2 ruling ruled that Pennsylvania counties could determine the details of election observers and that state law only required that they be "in the room" when the votes were counted. Trump attorney Jenna Ellis has blown the verdict and said: "We keep all legal options open to fight for the integrity of the elections and the rule of law."

Even the two dissenting judges at the state's highest court wrote that the idea of ​​throwing out "presumably valid" ballots due to "isolated irregularities" was "wrong".

On the Monday after election day, the Trump campaign submitted its grand attempt to overturn all postal ballot papers in Pennsylvania, claiming that the Democratic and Republican counties did not administer them the same way; Cases of fraud; and these election watchers could not see that they were being counted. On this basis, the results should not be certified on November 23rd.

The case faces an uphill battle. The largest law firm involved, Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, has resigned.

The Supreme Court has already allowed postal ballot papers to be issued in Pennsylvania, and claims by election observers not seeing them counted had previously failed when a Trump agreed that a "non-zero" number of Republicans was watching the count in Philadelphia would have .

The new lawsuit did not provide any actual evidence of fraud. It contained an allegation by an Erie postman that he had heard his superiors talk about illegal backdate of ballot papers; He reportedly retracted that claim when questioned by U.S. Postal Inspectors.

Trump's campaign then filed a motion to intervene in a pending US Supreme Court case contesting a ruling by the state's Supreme Court that allowed election officials to count postal ballot papers postmarked through Tuesday election day and through Delivered on the Friday after election day.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered the state's electoral bodies to segregate postal ballot papers received after 8:00 p.m. on Friday night before election day. EST on election day.

Pennsylvania election officials have said these ballots have already been separated.

The previously ruled judges did not have enough time to rule on the merits of the case before election day, but said they could re-examine it later.

Alito, along with Conservative Judges Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, said in a written statement that the Pennsylvania Court's decision is likely to violate the U.S. Constitution.

Pennsylvania Commonwealth Secretary Kathy Boockvar said late-arriving ballots made up a tiny fraction of the total vote in the state.

Rudy Giuliani revealed a "witness" to his claims – a Republican election observer – at his infamous press conference before Four Seasons Total Landscaping. But the man, Daryl Brooks, was not included in any legal documents. He had previously been convicted of exposing himself to underage girls.



Trump's campaign on the Saturday after election day said he had filed a lawsuit in Arizona, claiming that the state's most populous county falsely rejected the votes cast by some voters on election day.

The lawsuit, filed in the Maricopa County Supreme Court, said poll workers told some voters to press a button after a machine found it was "overrated."

The campaign said the decision disregarded voters' choices in those races, and the lawsuit suggested that those votes could prove "determinant" for the outcome of the presidential race.

It is a modification of a previous lawsuit that was filed and then withdrawn. She claimed Trump voters were given snipers to mark their ballot papers, claiming this made them more prone to failure. The Sharpie Gate claims actually have no basis, says Arizona's foreign minister.

On Thursday, November 12, a judge razed affidavits in support of the case as "spam" and a Trump attorney said they had not alleged fraud in any form.

On November 13, Trump campaign lawyers dropped a lawsuit requesting a review of all election day ballots. The Biden camp described the suit as "frivolous" and "a waste of time".

Amid setbacks, the state GOP asked a judge to exclude Maricopa County from confirming the election results. A judge was due to hear the motion on Wednesday, November 18, with an upcoming November 23 deadline for state confirmation of election results. An examination in the county entitled to vote revealed no differences in voting there.

A federal judge denied the application, saying there was no evidence that the county was doing anything illegal.

Trump campaign officials have also alleged evidence that thousands of non-residents voted but did not sue.

The Trump campaign filed a new lawsuit on Tuesday, November 17, two weeks after election day, alleging irregularities and suing on behalf of Trump voters in Carson City. The campaign claimed 15,000 people voted despite moving out of the state. Following previous allegations, some of the people labeled "out of state" were found to be military voters stationed outside of Nevada. Again allegations were made that a signature verification machine was not reliable. The lawsuit calls for a judge to either declare Trump the winner or to annul the results and prohibit the appointment of state voters. It is also said that 500 tentative ballots were added to the total without being resolved.

The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in Chatham County's state court alleging late-arriving ballots were improperly mixed with valid ballot papers and requested a judge to separate late-arriving ballots rather than count them.

The case was dismissed on Nov. 5 when it was determined that no ballots named in the lawsuit had been received after the state's deadline and there was no evidence that Chatham County was in breach of the law.

Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue urged the GOP Secretary of State to abandon claims that there were electoral irregularities on Monday. They didn't offer evidence and he scoffed, "That won't happen."

A lawsuit filed by Atlanta attorney Lin Wood, who supports Trump and represented Richard Jewell in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing, seeks a court order to prevent Georgia from confirming its findings, demanding that postal ballot not be included in the total be included. He tries to reject a declaration of consent from the Georgian Foreign Minister and the Democratic Party of March 6, 2020. The decree introduced procedures for verifying the signatures of voting papers.

Three claims by the Trump campaign that the dead in Georgia "vote" have proven false.

Georgia performed an automatic recount due to the proximity of the margin and performed a hand count as part of an audit. The officials expected to announce the result on November 18. Although the count revealed additional tranches of ballot papers, it was not expected that the outcome would change.



On Monday, November 9, Trump filed a federal fraud lawsuit and later a separate request that the votes not be confirmed on November 23.

In the first case, a witness alleged – possibly ill-treated by Trump's attorneys – that they learned from someone else that mysterious ballot papers had arrived late on unstated vehicles and that they were all for Biden; that they had seen voters trained to vote for Biden; and that they were told to process ballot papers without checks.

This included election monitors and “challengers” who said they couldn't get close enough to see what was happening.

A federal judge has not yet given an answer on when and how it will be examined. The Trump campaign retried the same case in the wrong federal court on Thursday, November 12, for no apparent reason.

Trump's campaign last Wednesday filed a lawsuit in Michigan to halt the state's vote count. The lawsuit alleged that campaign observers were denied "meaningful access" to counting ballot papers as well as access to surveillance video of ballot boxes.

On Thursday the 6th, Michigan Court of Claims judge Cynthia Stephens dismissed the case, saying there was no legal basis or evidence to stop the vote and petition.

A week after filing federal case, the Trump campaign had not yet delivered a copy of her complaint to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

US District Judge Janet Neff gave the campaign November 17th or was fired "for not carefully following this case."

There was a drama on the evening of November 17th when two Republican officials intermittently refused to confirm the Detroit results. They withdrew hours later in the face of outrage and allegations of racism. President Trump greeted them online for their "courage" Tuesday night, but they freaked minutes later and agreed to confirm the result. The initial rejection had been seen as the first step towards Trump as the Republican-held Michigan lawmaker ignored the election results and put its own electoral college voters backing Trump to force a controversial election into Congress.



On November 18, the Trump campaign paid $ 3 million to get a partial recount in two Wisconsin counties, Milwaukee and Dane, that were of great concern to Joe Biden. The request came hours before a deadline on Wednesday.

The race was close enough, with a difference of more than 20,000, that Trump could request a recount but had to pay. Districts must complete their work by December 1st.

Previous recounts had only a marginal effect on the final count. A recount of the 2016 presidential election earned Trump just 131 additional votes, with a profit margin of 23,000. This recount was requested by the Green candidate, Jill Stein, and rejected by Trump.
