President Donald Trump's campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani testified before the Pennsylvania state legislature to address the allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 election in the state on Wednesday. The Republican-held legislature heard testimonies from several election workers who had witnessed irregularities of fraud during vote counting.
The sixth most populated state in the US, Pennsylvania, had initially seen its district court dismiss the Trump campaign’s federal lawsuit, but the president’s supporters scored a big legal win on Wednesday, when a Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court judge ordered a halt to the certification of the state’s election results as result of the bombshell hearing.
Trump was not there in person, but telephoned the Pennsylvania Senate’s special hearing after Giuliani had presented 12 witnesses. The president spoke via speakerphone. Trump described former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s legal challenges as his “his crowning achievement”.
“This is going to be your crowning achievement,” he said. “You’re saving our country.” Trump added that the testimony and affidavits presented at this hearing clearly proved that 2020 was “an election we won easily, and we won it by a lot”.
“All we need is for some judge to listen to it properly, without having a political opinion,” he said. “I want to thank Rudy Giuliani for having the courage to do this. There were other lawyers that backed down because they were being screamed at.”
The president denounced the fraudulent voting process: “What happened here, this is not the United States of America. We got 74 million votes, and if you would have said 74 million votes the day before the election, every professional would have said there’s no way.”
The Republican incumbent told participants at the hearing held by the Senate Majority Policy Committee in Gettysburg: “They cheated, it was a fraudulent election. This is a very important moment in the history of our country.” The difference in the vote in Pennsylvania is just over 80 000 votes.
Rudy Guiliani noted: “You have two major gaps — you have the 672 770 votes that were not inspected by anyone secretly put into the ballot box and then you have this gap that I don’t understand between the mail-in ballots. You’ve sent out: 1,8 million and the number you counted: 2,5 million!”
He continued: “That’s totally impossible to explain other than what some of the other witnesses were suggesting that they were basically stuffing the ballot box. I believe what happened was that they never expected to be behind by 700 000 or 800 000 votes on election night. They expected to be behind by a couple hundred thousand — in Philadelphia to steal a couple hundred thousand votes, they do it every year, that’s not going to be tough. Now you have a real big problem so you had to create mail-in ballots, you had to stretch it out for a while…”
But perhaps one of the most striking testimonies at the hearing in Pennsylvania, was from Gregory Stenstrom, who described himself as a “former Commanding Officer in the Navy, veteran of foreign wars, CEO of my own private company, a data scientist; forensic computer scientist and an expert in security and fraud.” Stenstrom had been an observer.
He described how USB drives went missing and that the chain of custody for drives and ballots was broken and not followed in accordance with the rules.
Twitter meanwhile banned the campaign account of Pennsylvania Senator Doug Mastriano, who organized Wednesday’s election fraud hearing.
“We move heaven and earth with American dollars to secure elections in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere. We can’t do it in our own state?” Mastriano said during the hearing. “There’s people in Pennsylvania not interested in safe, secure elections.”
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey has found that 61 percent of Republican voters believe that it was very likely that the Democrats stole the election. Just as many Democrats (61 percent) maintained that it was not at all likely. But the survey also implied that at least 40 percent of Democrats thought that there had been election fraud.
Eighty percent of voters who do not believe Trump should concede, said it was very likely that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure a Biden victory.
