Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the U.S. should have a “trial by combat” to decide the 2020 election during his Wednesday appearance at a pro-Trump rally in Washington D.C.
President Donald Trump tapped Giuliani to lead his efforts to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s win soon after Election Day. Giuliani and the Trump campaign have filed roughly 40 lawsuits since then, all of which failed due to lack of evidence. Giuliani maintains, however, that he is confident the Trump campaign will find election irregularities that amount to “criminality.”
“Let’s have trial by combat,” Giuliani said. “I’m willing to stake my reputation — the president is willing to stake his reputation — on the fact that we will find criminality there.”
