‘They stole an election:’ Giuliani makes Trump ballot fraud case to Michigan legislature
Trump attorney led a group of witnesses at Michigan hearing
President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared in Michigan on Wednesday before a bipartisan state Senate hearing where several witnesses spoke about allegations pertaining to the 2020 election.
"This is a swindle, it's a con job, it's the theft of an election," Giuliani told legislators.
"They stole the election,” he argued.
During the event state Rep. Cynthia Johnson told state House Oversight Chairman Matt Hall "you're allowing people to come in here and lie. And I know they're lying."
The speakers at the hearing were not under oath, but after Johnson's remarks Giuliani pushed back against the suggestion that people were peddling falsehoods.
"On behalf of my witnesses I would like to point out that every single witness we've presented here has sworn an affidavit as to all of these facts," Giuliani said.
One of the witnesses who spoke on Wednesday was Jessy Jacob, a woman who has signed an affidavit that includes multiple allegations, including that she witnessed people seeking to coach voters to support Joe Biden and Democrats.
"I directly observed, on a daily basis, City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching and trying to coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party," Jacob's affidavit says. "I witnessed these workers and employees encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot. I witnessed these election workers and employees going over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote."
Also testifying was retired Army Colonel and cyber-warfare specialist Phil Waldron, who had testified last week in Pennsylvania on how the Dominion voting systems are set up to enable election fraud on a massive scale.
In Michigan he again talked about fraudulent elections in other countries, about voting machines being connected to the internet, and about stolen USB drives used for hacking voting machines.
He said that in 21 precincts, 90% of eligible voters voted, in 10 precincts exactly 100% voted, and in six precincts, more than 120% of eligible voters voted.
He cited open source material to show that there were four spikes in the analysis of the Dominion machines “where votes were entered in an amount of time that was physically impossible for the tabulation machines to process the votes.”
“One of the myths that has been propagated, even by the director of CISA [Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency] at Homeland Security,” said Waldron, speaking about the Dominion voting machines, “is that these machines are not connected to the internet. In the operator’s manual there’s a whole page of references that show you how and when to connect and what selectors to connect to servers and to routers. So, it is connected to the internet.”
There were other witnesses as well who testified to various questionable activities that allegedly took place in the Michigan election.
