Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, suggested that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden could have voted up to 5,000 times in Philadelphia, in a state where the former vice president is not registered to vote.
During his speech at a press conference on Trump’s Philadelphia campaign, Giuliani criticized postal ballots and said that “not a single Republican has been able to look at any postal ballots in the city,” suggesting that “from our perspective, they could be from Mars.
“Joe Biden could have voted 50 times for all we know, or 5,000 times,” Giuliani said during the meeting.
Although he grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the former vice president is not registered to vote in that state. Just last week, Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, were seen voting in their hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, in the Carvel State office building.
Giuliani’s comments about Biden came during a press conference that focused on Trump’s campaign to pursue legal action in the 2020 election.
On Wednesday, Trump’s campaign filed suit in Michigan and Pennsylvania to stop counting the ballots until the president’s campaign is given “meaningful” access to open, sort and process the ballots.
During the briefing, the former mayor of New York City also suggested that Trump’s campaign “will look very closely at whether we can enforce this at the national level.
“Quite likely we will have a national trial and really expose the corruption of the Democratic Party,” Giuliani said. “This goes beyond anything I have seen so far.”
He continued: “We will stick to it. We will win this election. We have actually won it. It is only a matter of counting the votes fairly.”
During the briefing Giuliani was accompanied by Trump’s son Eric Trump, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and two senior advisors to the President’s campaign, Lara Trump and Corey Lewandowski.
Trump’s son was the first to speak during the briefing and said, “We will win Pennsylvania, but they are trying to cheat us on this because they know that this is their only way to win.
“We will file a lawsuit in Pennsylvania. It is the last thing we wanted to do, it is the last thing my father wanted to do. But this is rampant corruption,” Eric Trump said. “That can’t happen. It’s not fair. This is not a democracy.”
According to the Associated Press, Trump is currently 3.4 points ahead of Biden in Pennsylvania. Eighty-six percent of the votes had been reported by Wednesday night, and Biden is behind Trump with over 200,000 votes.
Earlier this week Trump also criticized the U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed Pennsylvania to continue counting ballots three days after the election.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to vote in Pennsylvania is a VERY dangerous decision. It will allow rampant and uncontrolled fraud and will undermine our entire judicial system,” Trump said in a tweet that was later called “misleading” by Twitter.
Washington Newsday asked Giuliani to comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
