Biden’s Campaign Slams Rudy Giuliani Baseless Claims Of Voter Fraud
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump seemed to admit that his Democratic rival and President-elect Joe Biden won the election, only to quickly clarify that he concedes nothing. While the president seems bent on accusing Democrats of stealing the election from him without offering any evidence, the incoming president's team is calling him out for promoting baseless claims about voter fraud.
On Thursday, Biden's campaign scoffed at Trump's legal team, which has been using already discredited allegations that have not convinced elections officials, judges, or even the American public. The president-elect's campaign spokesman slammed Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani for holding an outlandish press conference where he said there is a communist plot to rig voting machines.
As he continued berating reporters, Giuliani sweated so profusely that spray-on brown hair color started dripping down both his cheeks, CNN reported. He went on to insist that he was talking about massive fraud and not a "little teeny one."
The former mayor of New York City, who was touted as a highly respected top federal prosecutor long ago, also alluded to the Joe Pesci legal-comedy film, My Cousin Vinny in his hour-long rousing speech before anyone else on the elite strike force team of Trump lawyers could get a word in edgewise.
Biden spokesman Michael Gwin, however, wasn't impressed with Giuliani’s performance. He said Giuliani's appearances tend to expose the ridiculousness of Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud, CNBC reported.
Gwin went on to point out that election officials from Democratic, as well as Republican parties, and officials from Trump’s own administration have debunked claims of widespread voter fraud. He cited papers that lawyers for Trump have filed in the court, where the judge has said that regardless of how hard Trump and Giuliani try, they will not be able to overturn the election result, which clearly shows Biden as the winner.
Chris Krebs, whom the president fired via a tweet earlier this week as head of Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, took to the social media platform on Thursday to describe the press conference as the most dangerous 1hr 45 minutes of TV in the nation's history. He continued saying it was also the craziest too.

On Nov. 3, Krebs tweeted that claims of election systems being manipulated were technically unclear and unconfirmed. As expected, his comment infuriated the president as it did not coincide with his conspiracy theories about massive improprieties and fraud.
