President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, blew up Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Friday, saying they “failed America,” as Trump’s efforts to reverse Joe Biden’s nationwide presidential victory seemed a failure.
Giuliani’s tirade of Republicans in the Pennsylvania legislature, which suggests they “cover up the crimes of the Dem,” followed GOP leaders there on Thursday issuing a statement saying they would not appoint Trump’s electorate to the Electoral College.
Former Democratic Vice President Biden won the Keystone State referendum, which entitles him to vote in all 20 state electoral colleges.
But other members of Giuliani and Trump’s campaign-challenging legal team – claiming widespread voting fraud – have prompted battlefield state legislatures to nullify Biden’s victory in the referendum by electing presidents to the Republican office.
Without such unprecedented action in several states, in which no GOP-led state legislature has indicated its willingness, Biden is almost certain to exceed the minimum of 270 votes by 36 votes and win the December 14 vote in the electoral body.
“The Republican legislature has let America down. I’m ashamed of them. They completely misled the president and me,” Giuliani wrote in his tweet.
“We’re all Republicans telling them what we think of them.
A former mayor of New York City wrote in an earlier Friday tweet: “Republicans in the PA legislature have no explanation for why they are [more] more than 700,000 letters in the vote, but there is no record of them being returned. Phantom polls. “
“There were also 848,977 votes received in secret, without observation. Why did you expose Dem’s crimes?”
Giuliani and Trump argued that the Republican president had indeed won the national election and that he had been deceived on the battlefield from his victories, in which he needed victory to select the Electoral College.
But Attorney General William Barr, Trump’s tough loyalist, said this week that the Justice Department had found no evidence of fraud that would reverse Biden’s victory.
And the Trump campaign and its allies have lost, resolved, or revoked 28 legal challenges to the election.
While a further 22 cases are pending, fraud has not occurred at all in these cases.
And legal experts don’t give Trump much hope of triggering an election victory through court proceedings.
