Guiliani others press conferenceA trio of campaign attorneys representing President Donald Trump accused his left-wing enemies of conducting a devious but clumsy effort to steal the election -- and they promised to prove it in a courtroom.

“President Trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it,” attorney Sidney Powell told reporters at a jaw-dropping press conference that was held at the Republican National Committee. (See video below)

Powell was joined by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, and Trump legal advisor Jenna Ellis, and all three attorneys took turns at a microphone delivering headline-making accusations of rampant vote fraud, and they dared the media to continue to dismiss, mock, and ignore the evidence.

Reactions to Trump campaign press conference:

"I just found myself hoping and praying that enough Americans were hearing [this new conference] because through the filter of the news, many of them will never know any of that. And I think no matter what side you're on, you're going to be concerned if you hear the evidence that Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell laid out about the corruption in this election."

"We haven't seen the evidence yet – we today heard it described and it's very troubling … and I certainly believe that Donald Trump and Mike Pence won the presidential election. But courts are going to be very reticent to take the risk of throwing out legitimate votes because other votes were illegal or produced from fraud."

Gary Bauer
Campaign for Working Families


“There were a lot of striking claims made in the press conference today. But claims achieve nothing and mean nothing at this point. Evidence is what matters and nothing else. I am eager to see the evidence from Guiliani and company. Hopefully at some point it will be provided.”

Matt Walsh
Writer & radio host


“I understand the need to have time to gather evidence but time is of the essence. Certifications are going forward next week. This is not the time for ‘opening arguments’ but evidence production."

Jonathan Turley
Law professor & legal analyst


"The Trump campaign conference this morning gave me hope: hope that there are still some truly great Americans who love this country enough to go to the mat to save it."

“I can’t vouch for the facts Rudy Giuliani is alleging but I wholeheartedly agree with his accusations against the media…”

“Whether you agree or disagree with an affidavit,” Giuliani lectured to the gathered reporters, “you’re just lying to the American people when you say there is no evidence.”

The former New York City mayor, in fact, had read minutes earlier from an affidavit signed by a Wisconsin election worker who described how workers were literally trained to cheat.

When it was Powell’s turn at the microphone, she confirmed online speculation that the Trump campaign was giving credibility to claims election software was used to literally flip the election from Trump to Joe Biden.

Ellis, during her first turn at the microphone, blasted the media for ignoring the previous claims of election fraud and predicted the media will spin and mock the press conference. She also lectured the media that the press conference was an “overview” of their legal case, not the legal case itself.

When the attorneys took questions from the media, all three laughed when a reporter, asked by Giuliani, said she represented CNN. After learning who the reporter represented, Giuliani accused the media of an “outrageous iron curtain” of censorship.

According to Giuliani, more lawsuits could be forthcoming in two western states currently in the Biden column -- Arizona and New Mexico -- and a challenge could be filed in Virginia. The former vice president's lead in Virginia is almost half-a-million votes.

The press conference was carried live by Fox News and Newsmax TV, but CNN and MSNBC did not.
