Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney for the president of the United States, Donald Trump, has starred this Thursday in a lit press conference, described by several analysts as “the most dangerous in the history” of the country, in which it has insisted, without providing evidence, that there has been a “massive fraud“in the elections and in which he has assured that there is a “national plan” to kick the tycoon out of the White House.
“What I’m describing to you is a massive fraud,” Giuliani exclaimed. during a frenzied appearance in which sweat mixed with hair dye. The one who was mayor of New York has not skimped on accusations and conspiracies several, including the presence of foreign communists and anti-fascists.
“I know the crimes, I can smell them. You don’t have to smell this one, I can prove it to you in 18 different ways. I can prove to you that he won Pennsylvania by 300,000 votes. I can prove that he won Michigan, probably by 50,000 votes, “Giuliani said, without providing evidence.
Trump’s lawyer has affirmed that there is a “pattern” at the national level that is repeated in several states, “which suggests that there was a plan, from a centralized place to execute these various acts of fraud,” especially focused, he stressed, “in the big cities controlled by the Democrats,” which he has said “have a long history of corruption.”
He has insisted, as Trump had already done, on pointing out those cities with important African-American population centers, such as Detroit, Atlanta, or Philadelphia, as the main centers in which this alleged fraud would have taken place. “The only surprise that would have found in this is that Philadelphia had not cheated in these elections, because for the last 60 years they have cheated in almost all of them and the same could be said about Detroit,” he accused.
Trump’s personal attorney has come further legal actions to challenge the results in states like Georgia, where after the manual count the victory of Joe Biden, Arizona, and even New Mexico and Virginia has been confirmed, and has claimed to have “hundreds” of sworn statements that would support these accusations, but has said that he cannot release them at the moment.
“All against us”
The rest of the legal team that accompanied Giuliani in this peculiar press conference has also abounded in conspiracy theories and has charged against the media. The legal advisor to the campaign of the president of the United States, Jenna Ellis, has criticized the media “impatience” and it has explained that the evidence will be presented in court. “This is not an episode of ‘Law and Order’, where everything is resolved in 60 minutes,” he said, referring to the popular and long-lived television series.
Another of Trump’s lawyers, Sidney Powell, has followed this conspiratorial line and has affirmed that “dictators” and “corporations” would be behind this plot against Trump. “Everyone is against us”he has claimed, so he is surprised that the media are not “astonished.”
“Dangerous press conference”
Giuliani’s intervention before the media has not gone unnoticed on the US political board, even being described as the “most dangerous press conference in the United States.”
“That press conference, one hour and 45 minutes of television, has been the most dangerous in the history of the United States. And possibly the most crazy,” he said. Chris Krebs, one of the top Justice Department officials, fired this week via Twitter by President Trump.
Krebs, who served as the head of the Infrastructure and Cybersecurity Agency, was fired in a withering way after disproving theories that electoral fraud had occurred during the presidential elections.
Joe Biden’s campaign team spokesman, Michael Gwin, has called the press conference “yet another Rudy Giuliani spectacle”, whose claims have been “absurd” and “completely discredited.” “Numerous courts, election officials from both parties, and even officials within the Trump Administration itself, have reaffirmed that the allegations of widespread voter fraud are categorically false,” Gwin said. “No matter how hard Trump and Giuliani try, they cannot override the will of the American people, who roundly elected Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States,” he has settled.
