Rush Limbaugh slams Trump's legal team for promising voter fraud 'bombshells' but delivering 'nothing'
The team, led by Rudy Giuliani, had laid out multiple accusations of illegal votes cast in various states that were projected for President-elect Joe Biden
Conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh, on Monday, November 23, denounced President Donald Trump's legal team for not delivering on its claims at their much-hyped press conference last week, alleging voter fraud in the 2020 presidential elections. The conference, led by the president's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, last Thursday, had laid out multiple accusations of illegal votes cast in various states that were projected for President-elect Joe Biden. Attorney Sidney Powell, who was believed to be a part of the Trump legal team, also spoke of an alleged plot of interference in the presidential elections with financial links to Cuba, Venezuela, and China over the Dominion voting machines used in multiple states.
She insisted that the machines somehow shifted Trump votes to Biden. She, however, did not provide any evidence for her claims. Other legal representative of the president's team at the conference, however, stated that evidence will be presented in court that will overturn the election results, but none has been shared with media since then.
They have also refrained from alleging "fraud" In the various lawsuits filed by the team in many states.
Shortly after Powell's statement, Giuliani and Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis, on Sunday, November 22, released a statement, saying the attorney is "not a member of the Trump Legal Team" and is not serving as President Trump's lawyer in "personal capacity."
Limbaugh, soon after their statement, knocked on the Trump legal team's efforts to distance itself from Powell and told his radio show listeners that "it's a tough thing to deny that she was ever a part of it because they introduced her as part of it. I mean, she was at that press conference last week."
"The problem with that press conference last week, folks, it goes way beyond Sidney Powell," Limbaugh said during the segment on Monday. "You call a gigantic press conference like that, one that lasts an hour, and you announce massive bombshells, then you better have some bombshells." The radio show host also noted that conference needed to offer more than "a hacker who can tell us, 'Yep, everything these guys have said is true. I've looked into it, I've run the software, I've hacked this, I've hacked that.' Even put him behind a screen to protect his identity, but you don't - you can't - I've talked to so many people who were blown away by it, by the very nature of the press conference, but they promised blockbuster stuff and then nothing happened. And that's just- that's not- well, it's not good if you're gonna promise blockbuster stuff like that."
Limbaugh, 69, who announced his cancer diagnosis in February, just three days before he was presented with the Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump, continued: "I understand- I'm the one that's been telling everybody this stuff doesn't happen at warp speed, at lightspeed the way cases are made for presentation in court, but if you're going to do a press conference like that with the promise of blockbusters, then there has to be something more than what that press conference delivered."
The pushback from the conservative host comes as it seems more likely that the legal team would not be able to achieve much in the courts. Meanwhile, the General Services Administration has decided to ascertain President-elect Joe Biden as the "apparent winner" and make federal resources available to his transition team after days of refraining from doing so. The GSA informed Biden that the Trump administration was ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from GSA Administrator Emily Murphy sent on Monday afternoon.
