Rachel Maddow Reads Damning Giuliani Testimony Showing Roots Of Election Conspiracy

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday learn aloud beautiful testimony from Rudy Giuliani that make clear the origins of a few of his and former President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories concerning the 2020 election. 

“The initial seeds of this whole conspiracy theory that is the animating force of the Republican Party ― Rudy Giuliani was pressed under oath to explain where that stuff came from,” Maddow mentioned. 

Giuliani’s deposition was amongst a trove of courtroom paperwork made public final week in a Colorado lawsuit introduced by former Dominion Voting Methods safety director Eric Coomer in opposition to Trump’s reelection marketing campaign, attorneys Giuliani and Sidney Powell, and right-wing crusaders and media retailers.

The lawsuit is considered one of a number of challenges led by Dominion searching for damages for lies unfold by Trump and his allies about electoral fraud. 

Giuliani mentioned he couldn’t recall which platform he considered the posts on.

“I don’t remember if it was Facebook. Those social media posts get all one to me,” he mentioned.

“Facebook, Instagram, Twitter,” he added. “I think it was Facebook.”

Requested if he considered anything, he mentioned: “Right now, I can’t recall anything else that I laid eyes on.” 

Maddow was speechless for a second.

“So the president’s lawyer … maybe he looked at Facebook posts? To come up with the ’Dominion did it’ conspiracy theory?” she requested. “But he can’t really remember and all social media looks the same to him.”

“That story that he admits was just concocted is what ultimately led to the attack on the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6” and quite a few pointless election recounts and audits in a number of states, she added.

She concluded: “It’s all made up.”
