Rudolph W. Giuliani is fed up with Democratic lawmakers who refuse to read thousands of affidavits on allegations of 2020 election voter fraud while simultaneously questioning the credibility of his witnesses.

President Trump’s personal lawyer ripped Michigan state Rep. Darrin Camilleri on Tuesday during a contentious exchange before its House Oversight Committee. 

Mr. Camilleri claimed that not a single piece of evidence pertaining to voter fraud was presented for lawmakers before introducing unsubstantiated claims about possible legal troubles for the former New York City mayor. 

“No one has found any evidence whatsoever of any of your wrongdoing,” Mr. Camilleri said of the day’s hearings, which went nearly five hours. “And why should we not believe the reported attempts of you to try and seek a pardon from the president?”

“I will ask that he be disciplined for that,” Mr. Giuliani fired back. “That is a defamation of my professional character.”



The president’s lawyer then corrected false claims that his team has brought “39 [election fraud] cases” before judges — they’ve only spearheaded three — before pivoting to a defense of his witnesses.

“The reason why people are reaching those [erroneous] conclusions is because, like you, they don’t have the discipline, maybe intelligence, I don’t know, to read through this,” Mr. Giuliani said while holding up a stuffed binder of affidavits. “You can’t tell me there’s no evidence when I have a couple of thousand affidavits from people. You can’t tell me that your credibility is better than the credibility than those people. They swore under oath. You didn’t.”

Mr. Trump has said that he is prepared to send Mr. Giuliani, along with Trump senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in his fight for every “legal vote.”
