Rudy Giuliani Touts New Affidavits as Trump Lawsuits Fail to Show Mass Fraud

Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani continues to vow each election lawsuit filed by the president's campaign will prove a bombshell case, but legal actions so far have failed to substantiate claims of widespread fraud and irregularities.

Giuliani held a press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot in Philadelphia over the weekend, vowing action over what he branded illegal votes cast in Pennsylvania—and has since made similar remarks about action elsewhere.

While outlining that fresh affidavits are to be published regarding allegations, he tweeted: "You will be shocked."

In regard to the allegations that Democrat Joe Biden's victory is based upon "unlawful votes," he previously told his followers: "We will prove it all."

However, so far the Trump campaign's attempts to do so have largely led to rejection or only marginal victories.

In Pennsylvania, the Trump team secured a victory in that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said mail-in ballots which arrived after Election Day must be segregated from others during counting.

This has come in the case that legal action were to deem them unconstitutional, with Republicans arguing that those arriving late should be cast out despite there having been an extension to the deadline in the state in terms of when they could arrive.

A state judge also granted the Trump campaign request that legal observers could stand closer to view counts.

The campaign has also sued to halt Pennsylvania from being able to certify a Biden win. The suit said the state's mail-in voting system "lacked all of the hallmarks of transparency and verifiability that were present for in-person voters." This action is ongoing.

In Michigan, at the state's Court of Claims, Judge Cynthia Stephens branded accusations made by the Trump campaign as "inadmissible hearsay within hearsay" as she rejected a call for ballots to stop being counted, after the Trump campaign claimed its poll watchers had been denied "meaningful access." The campaign is appealing.

In Georgia, a case disputing whether 53 absentee ballots had been received late was thrown out at the Superior Court of Chatham County. Judge James Bass ruled there was no evidence to substantiate this.

"Having read and considered said petition, all argument and evidence of record, including the evidence presented at the hearing, and the applicable law, the Court finds that there is no evidence that the ballots referenced in the petition were received after 7:00 p.m. on election day, thereby making those ballots invalid," he said.

Nevada also saw action brought forward by the Trump campaign. In Clark County, the Trump campaign said without evidence that "irregularities have plagued the election" there. A call for an end of the use of signature verification machines to count ballots was rejected by the state's Supreme Court.

In Arizona, the campaign has filed a lawsuit alleging Maricopa County incorrectly rejected some votes cast on Election Day. Roopali Desai, an attorney representing the Secretary of State's Office, previously branded this "an effort to find a problem when one does not exist," AZ Central reports.

Trump has refused to concede to Biden. News networks have branded Biden the election winner and the Democrat has moved forward with transition work.

Biden has said Trump's refusal to concede is "an embarrassment." Trump, however, has questioned what he deems the "lamestream media" calling the result and has insisted he is the winner, if only votes he deems to be legal are the ones counted.

Newsweek has contacted the Trump campaign for comment on the failed lawsuits and upon what evidence it is to provide in ongoing actions and contacted Giuliani through his website.
