The outgoing president of the United States, Donald Trump, has assured this Wednesday that he already has “all the evidence” that would demonstrate the alleged electoral fraud of the last presidential elections of November 3rd, for which he has asked a group of Republican senators in a ceremony held in Pennsylvania for their support to “turn the election around.”
One day after Pennsylvania confirmed its defeat in that state, Trump has intervened by telephone in a hearing held by Republican senators in the city of Gettysburg, chaired by his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, in which has insisted again on the theory of electoral fraud.
“We have to turn the choice around, because there is no doubt that we have all the evidence,” said a Donald Trump, while Jenna Ellis, another member of his legal team, held the mobile phone to a microphone so that those present could listen to a conspiratorial spiel of about ten minutes.
“All we need is for a judge to hear it correctly without having a political opinion or having another kind of problem, because we have it all and, by the way, the evidence is coming in now as we speak.”, has assured.
“These elections were rigged. We cannot allow this to happen. We cannot allow it to happen in our country. These elections have to be reversed because we won Pennsylvania by a lot of difference and we won all these undecided states also by a lot ”, has insisted.
Trump, who was scheduled to travel to Gettysburg, has finally stayed in the White House after one of his campaign advisers tested positive for coronavirus.
In this case, it is Boris Epshteyn, one of the members of his legal team, who was present at the fiery press conference last week in Washington, in which Giuliani, who has traveled to Gettysburg, affirmed that there was a nationwide plan to kick Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.
However, Trump on Wednesday pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials prior to the current president’s inauguration.
“It is a great honour for me to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has received a full pardon. Congratulations to him and his beautiful family, I know they will now have a great Thanksgiving! ”Trump said on his Twitter account when making the announcement.
Flynn’s secret talks with the Russian ambassador in Washington in December 2016, before Trump took office the following June, were the cornerstone of special counsel Robert Mueller’s extensive investigation. on Russian interference in the US elections that brought the Republican to the White House.
Trump fired Flynn 22 days after he began serving in his administration. However, the president has always argued that this investigation was a political “witch hunt” and that Flynn, a former army general who was head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was a “good man.”
Along these lines, and in a measure rarely seen, the Department of Justice He dropped his case against Flynn in May this year, claiming the alleged lies to the FBI were not significant.. The attorney general and head of the agency, William Barr, has been accused of giving up the impartiality that his position requires to become an ally of the president.
