Fox News’ White House correspondent Kristin Fisher suggested Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani was lying after Thursday’s press conference.
Giuliani’s press conference addressed voter fraud allegations that President Donald Trump, his allies and the campaign made following the 2020 election. Among other comments, Giuliani said he obtained “at least ten” witnesses who witnessed fraud, though he added that most of the names cannot be revealed.
“Well that was certainly a colorful news conference from Rudy Giuliani but it was light on facts,” Fisher said after the press conference. “So much of what he said was simply not true or has already been thrown out in court, and Giuliani, he opened by making this really bold and baseless claim that a lot of this alleged nationwide voter fraud that he is referring to all came from one centralized place.”
“He called it a nationwide conspiracy. And yet he failed to provide any hard evidence to back up that one specific claim especially when you’re dealing with a claim that really cuts to the core of our democratic process,” she continued.
Fisher pointed out that publicly, Giuliani alleged fraud in Philadelphia despite saying in court that “this is not a fraud case.” She accused him of changing his story while in public versus under oath and continued on to note other discrepancies with Giuliani’s story.
The Fox News correspondent also addressed Giuliani’s unwillingness to show the media what he said were sworn affidavits.
“As for evidence, well, Giuliani kept holding up pages and pages of what he says are sworn affidavits, hundreds of them, people claiming voter fraud and irregularities,” Fisher said. “But is he declining to show them, to show all of them at least, and listen to his explanation why.”
“Now, up on that stage with Giuliani was a big poster with the headline ‘Multiple paths to victory,'” Fisher added. “But Giuliani never credibly explained a single path let alone multiple ones. So, Dana [Perino], the fact remains that the Trump campaign has yet to provide – at least in court – hard evidence of voter fraud and irregularities widespread enough to overturn the outcome of the election and to effectively challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s stance as the president-elect.”
Giuliani said Thursday that the campaign will likely file a new lawsuit in Georgia on Friday. The press conference was held just hours after the Trump campaign withdrew its lawsuit in Michigan, where it had been challenging the election results.
