Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told a reporter during a press conference she was “lying” to her readers after posing questions regarding lawsuits being dismissed in President Trump’s fight contesting the election.
“What fake network do you come from?” Giuliani asked the reporter, who responded that she is an independent journalist.
“Well, first of all, our cases haven’t been dismissed,” he said before the journalist interjected that cases had been dropped.
“Don’t lie to people,” he said. “Ma’am, ma’am, ma’am. You are lying. You’re lying. You’re lying.”
The two went back and forth before Giuliani was able to give his response.
“Let me answer the question … The answer to the question is we don’t have a lot of lawsuits. We only have three. Our lawsuits have not been dropped all over the place,” he said as the journalist pushed back.
“Well, you’re a totally discourteous person. I’m gonna finish my answer … The fact is we have very, very few lawsuits. The lawsuits you’re talking about have been brought by private individuals and groups. Most of them were dismissed for lack of standing. Probably correctly because they were brought before the election took place,” he said.
“The election is now over. The only lawsuit we have withdrawn is the one we got the relief that we wanted, and that’s the one in Michigan. We also have another lawsuit in Michigan. That will accomplish the other objectives of what we want to do in Michigan. So, it’s silly to have two competing lawsuits.”
“The only lawyer that left a case, left because he was threatened, his family was threatened, his children were threatened. And so was the other lawyer. Yeah, that’s true. We have a little difficulty getting lawyers because our lawyers get threatened with being killed. Because of the ridiculous way in which you cover this,” he said before ending the exchange.
Giuliani was joined by fellow Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis on Thursday at the Republican National Committee headquarters, and he provided updates on the alleged “coordinated effort to deny” voters their constitutional voting rights.
“Trump won by a landslide, and we are going to prove it, and we are going to reclaim the United States of America for the people who vote for freedom,” Powell said.
