- Rudy Giuliani appeared in-person at federal court in Williamsport, PA
- He has taken over Donald Trump’s fight to throw out votes in Pennsylvania and other states Joe Biden carried
- He forgot judge’s name, called the opposition lawyer ‘that angry man’ and claimed 11 of the biggest cities had a conspiracy to steal the election
- He claimed only a ‘fool’ would think it accidental that Biden won the biggest cities
- District Judge William Brann gave him until 5pm Wednesday to file a new brief;
- Earlier he said the legal team might lose in order to advance its case
- ‘We’re prepared in some of these cases to lose and to appeal and to get it to the Supreme Court,’ Giuliani said
Rudy Giuliani returned to federal court for the first time since 1992 to argue for his client Donald Trump Tuesday, as the president ran out of lawyers and legal options, and was left using the former mayor as his frontman.
But the hearing was far from smooth or convincing, with Giuliani stumbling over the law and the facts, calling his opponent ‘that man who was angry at me’ and needing the meaning of ‘opacity’ explained to him by the judge.
‘In the plaintiffs’ counties, they were denied the opportunity to have an unobstructed observation and ensure opacity,’ Giuliani said. ‘I’m not quite sure I know what opacity means. It probably means you can see, right?’
It means you can’t,’ said U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, PA.
‘Big words, your honor,’ Giuliani, 76, said.
The case is one of Trump’s few remaining opportunities to stop hundreds of thousands of votes in Pennsylvania counting towards the election result, offering him the beginning of a legal path which could overturn the election result.
The Trump campaign is seeking to prevent Pennsylvania from certifying its election.
The lawsuit is based on a complaint that Philadelphia and six Democratic-controlled counties in Pennsylvania let voters make corrections to mail-in ballots that were otherwise going to be disqualified for a technicality, like lacking a secrecy envelope or a signature.
