Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was forced to “silence” his own witnesses during a hearing on alleged irregularities in Wednesday’s 2020 presidential election. The current video has been viewed more than 7 million times.
Witnesses testified to the House of Michigan Supervisory Board. Former Vice President Joe Biden won the state, and President Donald Trump’s campaign attempted to question the results.
One witness, Melissa Carone, was a contracted IT specialist who was responsible for repairing malfunctioning counting machines at the TCF Center in Michigan. He clashed with Steve Johnson’s Republican representative.
Carone claimed that the voting machines get stuck and that pollsters cast the votes “thousands of times.”
“Counting votes, voting nine or ten times,” she said.
Representative Johnson told Carone he had to testify under oath, but argued that he had signed a statement.
That statement was filed by Trump’s legal team in a Michigan lawsuit aimed at halting justification for the Wayne County election. The judge in the case called Carone’s allegations “simply not credible.”
Carone defended the statement and her claims before the Supervisory Board.
“I’m a mother, I have two children, I have two degrees. I don’t know a woman in the world who would make a promise under oath just to write. She could go to jail for that,” Carone said.
At one point, Carone was talking over Johnson, and Giuliani leaned toward her and seemed to tell her to “shower.” He claimed the pollsters were taken to a so-called “Chicago warehouse” where he witnessed fraud.
“I know for sure that there was illegal activity there,” he said, claiming there were “pictures” of the boxes when they were taken from the warehouse.
Republican Secretary of State Matt Hall asked him why no more people would make claims like him, Fox News writes. Carone told him he had been harassed and received death threats, adding, “Democrats are trying to ruin his life.”
Earlier, an unknown witness argued in favor of the voter ID because he said, “A lot of people think that every Indian is similar to each other, I think all Chinese are the same, so how would you say?
“If a few children show up, anyone can and can vote. And if someone has my name, they can’t even say my name, anyone can vote on my behalf. So an ID card should be the basic requirement,” he said.
His remarks provoked some laughter from those present. There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 elections.
