Giuliani Loses His Mind During Thursday Georgia ‘Fraud’ Hearing

During a Thursday hearing of the Georgia state House of Representatives, an unhinged Rudy Giuliani — who was appearing via Zoom after recently testing positive for COVID-19 — claimed that certain election workers were “quite obviously surreptitiously passing around USB ports as if they’re vials of heroin or cocaine.” Giuliani subsequently claimed that “it’s obvious to anyone who’s a criminal investigator or prosecutor [that] they are engaged in surreptitious, illegal activity.” These claims are just laughably bonkers. Giuliani’s so-called evidence for the fraud that he claims targeted Trump includes a claim that election workers were… passing around “USB ports” while supposedly looking suspicious. What were the workers supposed to do? Stand on a table and say, “Hello, everyone, I am passing this USB drive to my co-worker”? Rudy is ridiculous.

Is passing around a USB drive while looking “suspicious” in the eyes of Rudy Giuliani illegal? Obviously not. Suggesting that an allegation that election workers were passing USB ports around suspiciously legitimately supports Trump’s claims of widespread election fraud is just ridiculous. Drawing a line from election workers supposedly looking suspicious to election outcome-altering nationwide fraud schemes is just bonkers.

Discussing the election workers, Giuliani angrily added:

‘They should have been questioned already. Their places of work [and] their homes should have been searched for evidence of ballots, for evidence of USB ports, for evidence of voter fraud, because they obviously were engaged in it, and it’s available to 300 million Americans to watch. Some day, somebody’s gonna say — what the hell did you do about it? Don’t you want to protect us, your posterity? Don’t you feel any responsibility for the enforcement of the law?.. [The Democratic Party has] been taken over by a cabal of very, very crooked people.’

Giuliani sounds unhinged. He’s openly demanding a raid of homes and places of work of random election workers who he claims looked suspicious. Check out his comments below:

Giuliani has made a slew of appearances around the country where he has pushed similarly bonkers claims. During a recent appearance on Fox, he even claimed that in the middle of the night during the ballot-counting period after Election Day, a truck dropped off 100,000 “phony” ballots to a ballot-counting center in Detroit — which is ridiculous. The scope of fraud that Giuliani has alleged unfolded would likely require the cooperation of thousands and thousands of people across the country, to say the least.

Earlier this week, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican who’s reportedly been under FBI investigation for allegedly using his position for the benefit of a political donor, unveiled a lawsuit in which he’s seeking to invalidate the election results in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Georgia, all of which Biden won. President Trump’s team promptly joined the lawsuit in support of Paxton’s position, and the president asked Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R), who is a lawyer, to argue the case if the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear the proceedings.

There’s no indication that the Supreme Court will rule in Trump’s favor. Trump-allied legal challenges to the election results have repeatedly failed in front of conservative and liberal judges around the country.
