WASHINGTON, D.C., November 30, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In a November 27 video, President Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani explained the legal theory behind various lawsuits regarding voter fraud and outlined violations of the U.S. Constitution in multiple states.
Giuliani referred to Article 2, Section 1 from the Constitution, “the Electors clause,” saying the legal theory underpins “the single case that could be brought to the Supreme Court that consolidates the arguments made in the other six cases.”
Quoting from the text of the Constitution, Giuliani commented that “state legislature is in the first instance, and really throughout, in charge of the election.” No leeway is given to delegate power to committees or election commissioners to change the law.
These rules are particularly important now, he continued, since they have been “broken to such an extent that so many ballots are defective that it changes the result of the election, which is largely true in every single one of these states.”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

The former New York mayor then highlighted the legal and constitutional violations in various states.
Despite Pennsylvania law stipulating that ballots must be examined, as well as prohibiting any changes to be made to ballots after they are filed, some officials “went ahead and allowed certain people to fix their absentee ballot before it was entered, and that would be a violation of the law.” While the numbers involved are too small to overturn “the 80,000 vote margin,” Giuliani mentioned that they are “indicative of a kind of Wild-West attitude to not follow the rules.”
A major issue was found regarding the inspection of ballots, since though “some parts of the state” performed the event “very scrupulously,” in other parts of the state “it was wholesale refusal to do it, including putting Republicans in pens, treating them like second class citizens, even forms of assault.
“268,770 of them (ballots) just cast … no security check of any kind, in violation of the Constitution” he added.
Giuliani suggested that these two issues could be points in the “overall complaint” claiming that “the Democrat National Committee, the Democrat Party and the Democrat electors, carried on an election in violation of Article 2, Section 1.”
The issues in Michigan mirror those in Pennsylvania, “where they didn’t follow the rules with regards to signature verification en masse,” but also in Michigan, Giuliani added that “they added 100,000 phoney ballots to stuff the ballot box.”
Dealing with Wisconsin, Giuliani noted that “they failed to keep the applications for the absentee ballots, which is a manner directed by the legislature for the carrying out of this election, that is ignored completely.”
The possible number of votes thus affected in Wisconsin is “about 100,000,” with the margin of votes between the two candidates being only “10,000.”
The anomalies were “similar” in Nevada, since, contrary to the election commission requiring “in-person inspection of every one of the ballots, instead a number of ballots were run through a machine to compare the signatures.” “There is no authority in the constitution of Nevada to allow that,” added Giuliani.
Giuliani also commented on Georgia’s response to mail-in ballots, saying that though the state deemed such ballots as “very dangerous, no signatures are going to have to be verified, according to a consent decree they entered into.”
Meanwhile, Arizona legislature “requires that ballots be inspected” yet “the legislative officials did away with that.” The officials also ignored the legislature “with regard to 36,000 illegals who were allowed to vote.”
“The overview of this is,” said Giuliani, “when you look at the similarity of the fraud, in the eight districts in which we’ve brought, similar patterns, similar hidings, the similar putting Republicans in corrals, you see this is part of an overall plan or scheme. This wasn’t developed all on their own, spontaneously, by eight or nine leaders of the Democrat Party.”
Commenting on the facts presented, Giuliani stated that “they can be proved quite quickly.”
“This is important so that we elect the right President,” he continued, adding that this would be “Donald Trump, based on honest ballots.”
A president should be “the person who’s best for the office, not best on knowing how to cheat,” he added.
Giuliani displayed great faith in his evidence, saying the “sworn affidavits” he has are “a lot better than just about anything they ever had when they investigated President Trump.”
The widespread voter fraud and the failure to report on it, Giuliani termed as “selling out our country in a strange way.”
Meanwhile, last Wednesday Sidney Powell released her own long-awaited lawsuit, dubbed “the Kraken,” in both Georgia and Michigan, pointing to huge voter fraud and violation of the constitution. “The fraud was executed by many means, but the most fundamentally troubling, insidious, and egregious is the systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing,’” the complaint says.
Powell’s lawsuit further mentions that “China and Iran spied on the election (and possibly manipulated it).”
