Lawyers who had committed to working with Trump’s campaign to challenge the election results reportedly backed away after Rudy Giuliani’s disastrous press conference in the parking lot of a landscaping firm in a Philadelphia suburb.
Politico Campaign staff were reportedly horrified when they learned of the event organized by Donald Trump’s personal attorney and attempted to cancel it.
Yet the press gathered at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping – not the Four Seasons Hotel – between an adult bookstore and a crematorium, and listened to the former New York mayor in a revelry about conspiracy theories regarding the vote count.
The whole incident was mocked around the world, and it undermined the legal strategy planned before the elections.
Many of the lawyers the campaign spent months recruiting no longer wanted to participate.
Barry Richard, who represented George W. Bush at the recount in Florida in 2000, said: “I cannot imagine that a rational person“ in the common people ”would not be adversely affected by the way they behave.
Politico Reports that Friday’s news that Mr Giuliani will take on any new lawsuits after the election has stunned many observers, with some in the Republican Party and campaign believing that the president’s attorney’s actions thwart any chance they had to successfully challenge the results.
It could even spoil any future political ambitions Trump might hold.
Republican officials also see the decision to promote Mr. Giuliani as a tacit admission that Trump’s legal options are approaching, and an indication that he is determined to shoot. Politico.
There is a sense of resignation that the elections are nearing an end.
Since June, the campaign has gathered teams of attorneys in swing states in a strategy overseen by Citizens United chief David Bossie.
Targeting each state’s case-specific lawsuits, the intent was to reduce Joe Biden’s leads in swing states to the point of initiating recounts.
On the other hand, Giuliani appeared independently on Fox News with violent allegations of widespread voter fraud, telling the rest of Trump’s legal team that they were not aggressive enough.
Giuliani’s promotion may see the final days of Trump’s campaign set apart by pursuing parallel legal strategies with little hope of success.
Cases in Michigan and Pennsylvania are still pending, but a lawsuit was dropped in Arizona on Friday.
Richard, Bush’s former attorney, said, “There is no basis or zero” for canceling the election Politico. “They won’t win this. All these issues, I think, will be dismissed by the end of next week.”
