Evidence of election fraud is here . . . . . . . . starting . . . . . . . . now!
Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer who requested a fee of $20,000 per day and then held a press conference in a dingy parking lot next door to a porn shop at the exact same time "all the networks" called the election for Joe Biden, blew his nose into a handkerchief at another press conference and immediately rubbed it all over his sweaty face, had what appeared to be low quality hair dye leak down both sides of his face during yet another press conference, and loudly farted several times while speaking at a Michigan hearing, stated last week during his podcast that there has been "considerable movement" in both the gathering election fraud evidence and movement towards the decertification of the election results in not one, not two, not three, but four states - Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Starting after Christmas, this is really going to blow up. Because the evidence that all these crooked television networks*, newspapers, big tech, and the leadership of the Democratic Party, have been giving you is false. And you're going to find that out all at once. It's going to be very shocking to the country. . . . The numbers were wrong. Therefore they must be decertified.
* Giuliani told his listeners that ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox News have all refused to have him on as a guest. I doubt he explained why. (Spoiler Alert: He is batshit insane (and often drunk, according to some reports).)
Anyway, in most swing states, actual decertification would require support from several Democrats, which would be, to put it mildly, extremely unlikely.
Campaign lawyer Sidney Powell has said: "We've got a number of smoking guns. … We have a lot of extremely solid evidence. It's beyond impressive, and absolutely terrifying." That's what Trump and his campaign say in public and on TV, but when they get inside a court room, where they could be guilty of perjury, they suddenly have no evidence at all. In fact, they have repeatedly stated that they are not claiming that any fraud occurred.
According to the Washington Post (December 10):
The Trump team has spent weeks asserting that it could prove fraud or has proved fraud. It hasn't — and in many cases lawyers like Giuliani have been forced to admit in court that they aren't alleging actual fraud in specific cases — so now the argument is that this is beside the point. The real point, it seems, is that fraud could have occurred but that we might never see it because elections officials made it that way.
Yes, Trump's lawyers are saying there may have been massive fraud, but it was undetectable. (That Hugo Chavez is one clever bastard.) This is in line with the Legal Genius who claimed during a TV interview (probably Fox) that the burden of proof was on the anti-Trump side to prove that fraud didn't occur!
Giuliani stated that next month would "probably [be] a more dramatic January than we've had in our history". On January 6, 2021, the Senate and House of Representatives will meet jointly to:
open and count certificates of electoral votes from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, in alphabetical order. The process is spelled out in great detail in the U.S. legal code, right down to the Jan. 6 date and the hour (1 p.m.) at which the joint session begins. The candidate who reaches 270 electoral votes is the winner. During the session, at which Vice President Mike Pence will preside, any member may object to the results from any individual state.
Giuliani claimed that at least nine members or members-elect of the House will contest electoral votes during the joint session.
That's what's going to go on now—going to state legislatures and go on [to] Congress. This is going to be pursued. No matter what the crooked media tells you, it's a real case.
Of course, it's not the "crooked media" telling us that these cases are nonsense and bullshit.
It's the judges in 61 court rooms!
Trump's campaign is 1-60 in its court challenges. The lone victory was that curing ballots in Pennsylvania got a six-day limit instead of a nine-day limit.

It will never stop freaking me out that a spoiled, painted, malignant narcissist, imbecile with a blond cotton candy head dress and a boatload of ridiculous lies could mesmerize so many people. I can understand how people get swept up by demagogues. But THIS demagogue? Really? https://t.co/WNd4vOd8zz— digby (@digby56) December 27, 2020
