Outgoing President Donald Trump's bumbling legal team continues to defend the President's lies that widespread voter fraud tipped the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden.
The head of the effort to overturn the election results through the court system, Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, recently announced a "hearing" of the state Senate of the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania.
In reality, this wasn't a hearing at all. It was a gathering of Republican state legislators at a Wyndham hotel in Gettysburg, miles away from the state's capital city of Harrisburg.
Giuliani and fellow Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis—along with Trump, on speakerphone—presented what they called evidence of massive voting irregularities in the state, falsely asserting that the results of the election are illegitimate.
One moment in the so-called hearing stuck out.
"I know crooks really well. You give 'em an inch and they take a mile. And you give them a mile and they take your whole country."
As Trump's personal lawyer, Giuliani facilitated the back door pursuit of dirt on Biden's son, Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. Trump's withholding of congressionally-approved aid for Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into Hunter Biden eventually led to Trump's impeachment.
With Giuliani as one of Donald Trump's most vocal defenders, people agreed that Giuliani does indeed "know crooks really well."
The so-called hearing at the Wyndham was largely dismissed as another quixotic attempt by Trump's legal team to legitimize the President's delusions.
President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on November 3rd.
