Giuliani Wants Supreme Court to Decide Election
Rudy Giuliani, the attorney for President Donald Trump, said the campaign is prepared to lose election cases in an effort to throw the final decision on the presidential race to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Giuliani’s comments came during a Tuesday interview on Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria."
The Daily Mail reported that Giuliani was due to appear in court remotely on Tuesday in a case involving an attempt to have hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots removed from the count in Pennsylvania.
“Frankly this is a case that we would like to get to the Supreme Court,” he said. “So we're prepared in some of these cases to lose and to appeal and to get it to the Supreme Court.
“You might remember in Bush v. Gore, the Bush campaign lost in the state of Florida because it was a Democratic court. You're not going to win every one of these ... but in some cases you win, some cases you lose.”
Trump has maintained he would “easily” be declared the victor in the race if just the “legal votes" were counted.
And earlier this month he tweeted that the “U.S. Supreme Court should decide.”
Meanwhile, Giuliani is in charge of Trump's campaign lawsuits and public communications about them.
Trump put his personal attorney at the top spot after a lawsuit was dropped in Maricopa County, Arizona, which claimed ballots that had been cast for the president were not valid because voters used Sharpie pens to mark their choices.
