Rudy Giuliani boisterously declared that the path to the presidency for Trump did not involve the courts as judges in six states rejected his team’s election fraud appeals, dealing a crucial blow to the president’s effort to secure a second term. 

Trump’s personal lawyer was speaking on Hannity Friday as he made the claim and bemoaned about recent rejections in both Nevada and Georgia.

‘The simple fact is, we don’t need courts. The United States Constitution gives sole power to the state legislator to decide presidential elections,’ Giuliani explained to Hannity.

‘In fact, if we go back to the Founding Fathers, they would tell us that we are making a mistake.

‘This should be thrown right to the House of Representatives and to the Senate in each state and they should hold hearings, they should have factual determinations and they should decide what the right voting account is.’

Giuliani’s bold claim come as Trump’s legal team continue to have their cases thrown out in six key states they need to secure the election – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada and Wisconsin.

The Trump campaign has filed 46 lawsuits, none of which have made serious headway, since Joe Biden was named President-elect on November 7. 

A judge on Friday threw out a Republican bid to undo Biden’s victory in Arizona, concluding the state’s GOP chief failed to prove fraud or misconduct in her challenge of election results in metro Phoenix. The judge also noted the evidence presented at trial wouldn´t reverse Trump’s loss in the state.

Judge Randall Warner dismissed Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward’s challenge of ballots in metro Phoenix that were duplicated because voters´ earlier ballots were damaged or could not be run through tabulators. Poll observers called to testify by Ward said they witnessed problems in the processing of duplicated ballots, but the judge said those problems were pointed out to election workers, who then fixed the mistakes.

Warner wrote ‘there is no evidence that the inaccuracies were intentional or part of a fraudulent scheme. They were mistakes. And given both the small number of duplicate ballots and the low error rate, the evidence does not show any impact on the outcome.’

Six cases brought by Trump and Republican allies in Michigan have either been rejected or dropped. On Wednesday, Giuliani appeared at a public meeting with lawmakers and urged activists to pressure, even threaten, the GOP-controlled Legislature to ‘step up’ and award the state´s 16 electoral votes to Trump despite Biden´s 154,000-vote victory. 

A Michigan appeals court turned down an appeal Friday from Trump’s campaign in a challenge to how absentee ballots were handled in Detroit and other issues.

In Wisconsin, the state’s Supreme Court on Thursday refused to hear Trump’s lawsuit seeking to overturn his loss in the battleground state. In a divided decision, the court didn’t rule on the merits of the claims but said the case must first wind its way through lower courts.   

The Wisconsin Supreme Court also declined Friday to hear a lawsuit brought by a conservative group over Trump’s loss. 

The Trump campaign lost its bid to overturn the results of the election in Nevada and the Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed a challenge brought by GOP lawmakers.

On Friday, Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit in Georgia seeking to invalidate the election results there, the latest in a series of legal challenges aimed at reversing his loss that have so far gone nowhere. 

The Trump campaign claimed in a statement there was ‘literally tens of thousands of illegal votes that were cast, counted, and included’ in the 2020 General Election. 

President-elect Biden won the election with 306 Electoral College votes – against the 270 required – to Trump’s 232.
