Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and personal attorney to President Trump, said Sunday that the incumbent should not concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden as he teased a new barrage of as many as 10 last-ditch lawsuits alleging election fraud.
“At this point, it would be wrong for him to concede,” said Giuliani during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” hosted by Maria Bartiromo.
“There is strong evidence that this was an election that in at least three or four states, and possible 10, it was stolen,” Giuliani claimed. “In other words, it was based on false votes. Now, you can’t let an election go into history without challenging that.”
Giuliani, Trump and others within the president’s orbit have repeatedly made allegations of widespread and organized fraud since Election Day, but have not provided hard evidence to back up the claim.
Giuliani said that would change this week with a flurry of lawsuits seeking to change the course of the election.
“Right now we have one [lawsuit],” he said. “We have two that are being drafted, and the potential is 10. We haven’t investigated all the rest of those states. … You want an estimate? By the end of the week we’ll have four or five.”
Among the states Giuliani mentioned by name are Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan — all of them 2016 Trump wins flipped this year by Biden.
In Pennsylvania — which proved to be the final state to flip, clinching the presidency for Biden — Giuliani said that he was prepared to point to dozens of witnesses who would attest under oath that they observed instances of election malfeasance.
“There are upwards of 50 witnesses, and this will be the subject of a lawsuit that we file tomorrow [Monday] for violating civil rights, for conducting an unfair election, for violating the law of the state, for treating Pittsburgh and Philadelphia different than the rest of the state,” Giuliani said. “This is something that just has to be addressed.”
Asked by Bartiromo if he had enough evidence to alter the course of the already-called election, Giuliani was at least bullish on the Keystone State.
“Well, I think we have enough to change Pennsylvania,” he said, calling the election in that state a “disaster.”
Trump held a strong lead in that state on Election Day, only to gradually watch it wither away as mail-in ballots — overwhelmingly for Biden — rolled in, leading to his eventual defeat.
The president has repeatedly derided those ballots as “illegal.”
