President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and highlighted his work on the legal challenges facing his campaign.
Through the loudspeaker placed at the microphone by the campaign’s legal advisor, Jenna Ellis, the president noted that Giuliani’s work at the head of the legal team “is going to be your crowning achievement.”
“You’re saving our country,” the president said at the hearing organized by the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee to address allegations of election fraud.
The president made his comments after Giuliani presented 12 witnesses who exposed multiple forms of fraud that occurred in the state of Pennsylvania.
In the face of the vast amount of testimony, affidavits, and evidence of election fraud, the president claimed that he easily won the Nov. 3 presidential election.
“This is an election we won easily, and we won it by a lot,” he said.
“What happened here, this is not the United States of America,” he continued in the call that lasted about 10 minutes.
He explained that he got 74 million votes, 11 million more than he got in the 2016 election.
“We got many votes more than Ronald Reagan had when he won 49 states,” President Trump said to show that he was the clear winner of the election.
“They cheated. It was a fraudulent election,” the president said.
President Trump’s initial idea was to attend the hearing in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He canceled his trip at the last minute after another legal team member, Boris Epshteyn, tested positive for COVID-19, also known as the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
“This is a very important moment in the history of our country,” President Trump reflected over the loudspeaker.
“We have all the evidence, we have all the affidavits, we have everything, all we need is to have some judge listen to it properly without having a political opinion or having another kind of a problem,” he added.
The witnesses to the fraud
At the Trump Campaign request, a judge suspended election certification in the state of Pennsylvania to hear the testimony of fraud from citizens, some of whom spoke at the hearing.
According to the recordings, one of the witnesses interviewed was Gregory Strenstrom, a data scientist, computer forensic expert, and security and fraud expert, who testified about 47 USB cards’ disappearance with thousands of electoral data.
“47 USB cards are missing. My name is Gregory Strenstrom. I am from Delaware County, former Commanding Officer in the Navy, a veteran of foreign wars, CEO of my own private company, a data scientist & forensic computer scientist & an expert in security & fraud.”

“In all cases, the chain of custody was broken,” Strenstrom testified, clarifying that, “It was broken for the mail-in ballots, the Dropbox ballots, the election day USB card flash drives. In all cases, they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections,” according to Red State.
Strenstrom also highlighted the irregular handling by an election supervisor, who entered with bags containing USB cards and repeatedly inserted them into the vote-counting machines without being supervised.
Also, he pointed out that 70,000 sealed envelopes remained whose votes were not included in the total vote count, questioning: “My question is, where did the 70,000 ballots go? And nobody knows.”
In short, for Strenstrom, Delaware County cannot be certified, simply because all the evidence is gone.
“We just learned two days ago that virtually all chain of custody logs, records, yellow sheets, everything was gone. All forensic evidence, all custody sheets in Delaware County are gone,” he said.
Despite Strenstrom’s warning of the tampering, his observations were not addressed.
On his part, President Trump thanked those who presented their declarations in defense of the electoral process: “Everybody in that room—I want to thank all the people that signed affidavits and all the speakers—you are fantastic people, you are great patriots.”
“This election was rigged, and we cannot let that happen. We cannot let that happen for our country,” said the president.
