President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani hopes to overturn election losses in four states just a week ahead of when electors are supposed to certify their votes.
“I think our best chance is in Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona. I would say Wisconsin in the courts. Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona in the legislature,” Giuliani told John Catsimatidis on Sunday during his radio show The Cats Roundtable on WABC 77 AM.
The Trump campaign is engaged in litigation in several states in hopes of overturning election results that gave a victory to Democrat Joe Biden. The team has pushed allegations of voter fraud, and Trump has yet to concede to Biden, who was declared the winner of the election by several media outlets nearly a month ago.
For Georgia, Giuliani described the election scene at the polls as a “bank heist,” alleging Democrats pushed everybody out of polling stations and waited until everyone was gone to count ballots.
“This is probably the clearest evidence of voter fraud we’ve ever seen in America,” Giuliani said.
The president’s team is hopeful they can get a victory in the state Legislature, especially after security footage obtained by them purported to show ballot counters removing four concealed boxes of ballots from under a table after election supervisors supposedly left the facility for the night.
State officials have largely been dismissive of the Trump campaign’s claims of fraud. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has publicly pleaded with Trump’s supporters to accept his defeat in the election.
Giuliani also repeated a claim regarding Arizona, where he alleges the election went in favor of Biden due to thousands of illegal residents voting, however, the assertion has been debunked.
According to the Associated Press, Biden won the election by 306 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 232. A total of 270 electoral votes are needed to secure the presidency.
If the Trump campaign were able to flip the four states, the president would gain 53 electoral votes, putting him at 285 and diluting Biden’s votes to 253.
With about a week left until electors are set to certify their votes, the Trump team has slim chances of trying to overturn the results of the election in time. The campaign has already faced several legal defeats in their hopes to prove fraud took place.
